Latest Blog Post

It's Been a While
I had originally intended to write a big blog post, with plans and ideas for gaming, but that went right out the window. So instead, ramblings!

I'm definitely not the gamer I was a couple of years ago. And I seldom use this website any more. I don't even know what changed, all I do know is that my motivations and goals for gsming have changed.

In my original blog post, I had listed games that I wanted to complete. But it just seems a tad pointless now. Because I know I won't be able to achieve the goals I set myself, and because I'm just not that gamer any more.

I just want to say thank you to everyone who has helped me over the years with gaming. I am truely appreciative. And to the group of good friends I have gained from this site. I never imagined that when I first joined this site, I'd end up meeting some amazing people, who I now can't imagine not having in my life. You guys are everywhere around the world, and have done more for me than I ever thought possible. So thank you, thank you so much.

So enough of the soppy side of things. While I won't be setting myself hard and fast goals for gaming, I do have some things I'd like to get done.

Firstly, the Destiny games. I have a great little clan/group that I get to play with. And I wouldn't change that for the world. They've helped and sherpa-d me to the point where I only have Wrath of the Machine on Hard Mode left to do for Destiny. And then that Destiny 2 is almost completed. I honestly couldn't have done it without them. It enabled me to enjoy the Destiny series.

Secondly, the Assassin's Creed games. I originally wanted them done by the time Origins is released, but that won't happen now. But these games will have my full attention when I'm not grinding Destiny. Maybe they'll be done by the end of the year.

Then finally, if I need a break from those series (or have finished them) I'm torn between where my attention should go. I'm not after 100% completion, somewhere around 70% would be nice. So I'm thinking that I'll end up booting my 360 back up and playing through some of the non-backwards compatible games. I'm only going to 100% the games that I want to finish. The rest can be played until I've done all I can do, or want to do. Because at least then, I don't feel pressured. Which is for the best. I need to be able to enjoy games, I want to be able to enjoy games again.

Sometimes, gaming does feel like a chore. And I think that's down to the amount of money and time I've invested in it. And I need to change that mindset, and I intend to, eventually.

I think I've run out of things to say, so I'll end the blog post with this:
Things are either going to change for me, or I'm probably going to give up the achievement hunt for good. We will see what happens. There's a lot going on for me, and I'm not sure that my old gaming ways are compatible with what my life is like now.
