The Change
Fellow TT-ers. There is change in the wind. From this point on, I will be limiting my gaming (Not in terms of hours particularly, more so what games I play). I am bringing minimalism to the one area of my life that has always been safe... Gaming! laugh

I have went through my games on Steam, Microsoft and Sony and limited my games and wishlists down to a much more manageable amount toast

I'm not sure you would notice much of a change if I hadn't written this blog. I will still be playing a good amount of games and primarily on PS4. I just won't be buying as many games and probably won't be completing quite as many games for various reasons. In theory, I should end up playing more of the games I really want to play, but we shall see how that turns out laugh

Backlog and wishlist cut
To give an idea of how large the cut to my backlog is, the below image of my Steam categories sums it up nicely. 69 (heh heh wink) Definitely want to play against 841 Uninterested. Unfortunately even cut down it still seems like a huge task redface

My Wishlists have also been reduced to the following;

Sony = 58 games
Steam = 27 games
Microsoft = 2 games

Other targets
Other than continuing to play through my games as normal, I do have a couple of other targets to meet alongside this streamlining. These are both basically to close off Microsoft console gaming for good.

1) Get back into and maintain top 10 XBLA - I don't mind what route I go to do this but I would like to get back into the top 10 and stay there. I don't think at this point that the top 10 will change much and there won't be much movement, along with a few being fairly retired at this point. wink

2) I would like to complete 4 particular XBLA games I had always meant to complete. All 4 are challenging but also ones that I know I was capable of but never got round to. They are also all games I really enjoy so that is a bonus smile

They are;

Black Knight Sword
Capcom Arcade Cabinet
Missile Command
Mutant Sword Reloaded

Future plans
I might finally start blogging on a more regular basis on here, as well as working away on the GI side of things on here to help give back to this site. toast

I hope to get round to some playing some great games through my streamlining, though I am conscious of the fact that a lot of hidden gems I have found throughout my life have come from playing everything and anything warning

I am going to the gym (and about to start Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) as well as travelling a fair bit. My time is pretty full of stuff to do but it keeps things interesting smile

Looking forward to semi-retirement but that is still 6 years away. I imagine that will be the next big shake-up gaming-wise, but that is still ages away and we will likely be on PS6 at that point laugh
