I thought it might be fun for everyone to list both one game they resolve to play in 2009, and one game they resolve to buy in 2009.

The games shouldn't be the top of the list choices, as that is akin to giving up rabies shots for the new year. The selections you make should be for game you have a lower level of interest in but are willing to give a chance.

Game You Resolve to Play - This should be a game you own or have access to, which you did not enjoy or weren't impressed with the last time you played. You're resolving to give it one more serious chance.

Game You Resolve to Buy - This should be a game you have been on the fence about for a while. The game you always pass up to purchase another game you think is better. You're resolving to finally give this game a place in your collection. If even only temporarily.

Resolve to Play

I have never played this game. For whatever reason I just haven't been able to drum up my interest in it. Every time I read about it or look at the cover I say, "eh, maybe later." I didn't actually buy this. I received it free as part of a promotional deal when I bought other games.

I know it gets some pretty good reviews but that still hasn't been enough to cause me to take off the shrink wrap.

So, I resolve to play this game in 2009.

Resolve to Buy

This is on my wish list. I have even played the game and enjoy it. But for whatever reason when I'm buying games, there is always some other game I want more. This game is always left out of my cart for something I wanted more. No longer!

I resolve to buy this game in 2009.

I haven't had much enjoyment from co-op games. This is especially odd for me, as I spent a decade working as a co-op professional, in team building, group management, and co-operative project management.

So I resolve to play this (or Battlestar Galactica, or Red November) sometime in 2009.

In 6 short weeks, Shenomad and I are moving back to South Korea. I've found a shop there with many older titles I'm after. I'll definitely be buying this one, and probably Station Master, as well. Not to mention Korean games like Lectio and King Of History.
