Every December I think about the games I've played, and I realize I have a hard time deciding what my favorite game of the year was. I usually end up saying it's something I played fairly recently, and I think that's partially due to the experience being fresh in my mind.

To that end, I've decided to keep a gaming journal this year. The plan is to keep a running set a notes of what I like and dislike about each new release I play in 2014. Upon finishing each game, I'll assign it a numeric score on a 10 point scale and use those notes to decide what my game of the year is.


The point? Who knows. I guess I'll make it something of a game with myself, to see if I'm really up to it, or if like most New Year's resolutions, I give up on it within a few months.

Do you have a gaming resolution this year? Let me know in the comments.

P.S. Sorry it's a bit late, but I haven't found a game that released this year that I'm interested in yet. Am I the only one with this problem?
