Poll Question 256 – Will you make any gaming New Year’s resolutions?

30th December 2011

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

I’m terrible. I make more NYRs than you can imagine.

The inside of my wardrobe door is covered in photos and post it notes.

In fact, as I get older, I get worse or more ambitious, depending on which way you look at it.

And yes, I do achieve some of them!

So, this year, I plan to make some gaming resolutions, not related to the website.

At the risk of jinxing my chances of achieving these resolutions, here they are.

1. Change my keybindings. I am sure they inhibit my ability.
2. Play at least 4 of the unplayed games in my Library.
3. To try at least 1 Art mod per month.
4. To try some indie games during the year.
5. To give L4D/L4D2 a chance.

Your turn. Don’t forget to list them!

Time to Vote


  1. My Resoulution is 1024×768 😛 . But my New Years Resolution will be to Play more HL1 mods.

    1. Get through at least 50% of my unplayed games.
    2. Keep up with mod releases, as in play them as they come out, instead of installing them and then playing them 3 months later.
    3. Make at least one gaming related youtube video and blog post per-week, even when I’m really, really busy (quite often).
    4. Be more social, comment on peoples blogs, use twitter more, just generally put myself out there in the gaming world instead of lurking from the sidelines.
    5. Finish my Unity game and make it as good as I possibly can (university work so I really better or I’m screwed).

  3. Voted No, because I have a ton of games on Steam I just “opened & closed” and forgot all about…lol!
    Took a peeked at: BattlefieldBadCompany2, Just Cause2, Stalker Trilogy, Mafia II, Sanctum, ToumbRaiders etc.
    Have my hands full and not making any gaming New Year’s resolutions.
    Been playing more HalfLife, Crysis, Farcry maps/mods this year, than all the games I have “begging” for my attention on Steam. I’m patient, so therefore, no newyear gaming resolution.

    “art mod”? Try “Stanley Parable”, it’s short and definitvly a masterpiece who don’t mindf*ck you too much.

    I would rather plunge spikes in my eyes than replaying those self-proclaimed “art mod’s” that are “Dear Esther” and “Korsakovia”.

  5. Well my resolution is 1280 by 1024! Ha ha.
    But I will do my utmost to finish Half Life 2 — Episode 2 this coming year.
    And; if, …..pause for dramatic effect…… “Black Mesa source” actually does exist, I will, finally get around to finishing Half Life!

      But please, try not to play it’s last chapter. Consider it’s final battle the end. I regreted witnessing that “emo” ending even knowing the spoilers.

      Good luck, buddy 😉

    Maybe if ep3 or BM Source is release, i’ll play them inmedieately.

    it catch my atention that Phillip says:

    5. To give L4D/L4D2 a chance.

    , GOOD 4 U buddy at least u can try them along with some mod campaings, I hope you like them, and i’m glad that u get out a little biit out of the dogma of not play Mp pure games, in my conssideration L4D definetely could be conssider as also Sp action games and mods.

    If you want some good players to play L4D 1 and 2 with, maybe post some kind of contest and the top 3 winners get to be your co op teammates!
