Gaming resolutions, general 2018. What's yours?

So next year I'm gonna try and stick to some resolutions. I've developed some awful habits over the last few years for buying full price games and never playing them. Still in their wrapping. The backlog is real.
But in 2018, I'm gonna try and get things in order.

First resolution is, no more buying games, new or second hand, at all. No new systems either. These games will always be available to pick up in the future.

Second, do a list of what I have, physical and digital, pick a system, then pick a game to play, give it a few hours and see if it grabs me, if not, get rid of it, sell it on.

Save money....

Steam.... Well, that will prob be for 2019.

But any tips on tackling a big catalogue of games? It can be very overwhelming to start, but easy to add to.

You just gave me a brain wave, and a goal. With money I save from not buying new games, I'll try and build a full tabletop arcade cab with a raspberry pi. Have a spare pi around somewhere I think. They can be expensive, last time I looked.

I was expecting a bunch of "4k ya pleb" posts

Mine is to divulge from endless games or replaying old faithfuls like Dark Ssouls or Xcom, I'd like to sort out another hundred or so games from the steam backlog.

I want to give my N64 a proper run too, too many unplayed games sitting by it

I'm hoping to play more Outrun 2006, while I have it on the PSP and PS2, I don't have it on the Xbox and that version also works on the 360 via BC, so it'll look all spangly fresh on the plasma.

Probably going to try and pick up a Turbo Duo at some point, also finish out the Nintendo handheld collection with a 3DS:XL and a N3DS:XL.

Pick up the Rockman carts for the Famicom and GB.

Going to pick up a Pocketstation maybe.

Finally install my 2player control panel on my cab.

I can see the PS3 finally graduating to the gamesroom in the sky/attic, and with the 42" plasma there now it'll be just fine.

And trust me on the Outrun 2006, that game is simply amazing!

To stop buying stuff I don't actually need and to repair/build/mod everything that actually needs doing.

And also, if I complete a game, any game, on any system. That would be a bonus!
