What Are Your 2012 New Year's Video Game Resolutions?

2011 is mere hours from being a distant memory as 2012 overtakes the previous year in what will undoubtedly be a violent altercation. The new year means resolutions, and while I have some not so important throw-away ones like eat healthier and learn how to do a back flip, I also have some important video game ones that I will write on a big dry-erase board and hang above my TV.

My biggest one, is to try to step out of my comfort zone. I like shooters, platformers and action games, but I have never liked strategy games, and I tend to avoid turn-based RPGs. This year, I will try to experiment in those genres more so that I can get closer to becoming a video game expert and offer you guys better, more rounded opinions.

I also want to get all the achievements in Dead Space 2... maybe. The only one I have left is beating the game on the hardest difficulty, and that's scarier than any of monsters that tried to sever my limbs in my first few playthroughs.

What about you? When it comes to video games, what will you do differently in 2012, if anything?
