I was wondering what went wrong but thankfully things seem to have settled.

1. Finish more games/Play more games - This self-explanatory. With the amount I possess and even more so with digital games, I have alot and while I realistic will not get through everything, I would like to have more of a taste of what I have already.

2. Cut down the spending - I was definitely more in control this year but just like the previous year, the holiday sales got me but in between that I purchased a Steam Deck and wound up getting more PC games as a result. That's not to say that I will stop but I want to be more conservative with what I buy.

3. Consolidate the collection - I would like to keep what I have with me and anything that is either not to my liking whether finished or not gets sold, traded in or take to storage if I don't have a way to rid at that moment.

Favorite 2022 Release: Elden Ring

Least Favorite 2022 Release: The only other 2022 release I played was House of the Dead Remake but I wouldn't consider it my least favorite so N/A

Favorite Game Played in 2022: Elden Ring

Least Favorite Game Played in 2022: Castlevania: Circle of the Moon. This was my first time playing since the mid 2000s and although this was my first CV game, I felt it didn't age as well as I thought especially with how it controls. Doesn't help how BS the game can be at times either.

Sleeper Hit of 2022: Bright Memory: Infinite. I started the game back in March and stopped out of nowhere but then picked it back up when I got my Steam Deck and it plays very nicely and I wish there was more

Favorite Gaming Moment in 2022: In Elden Ring when I was facing Radagon, there was a moment where I defeated him with my mimic tear. We both unintentionally used our weapon arts in sync to defeat him. Thankfully I save this clip on my Playstation and has stuck with me since.

Proudest Collection Accomplishment of 2022: Getting the Steam Deck when they were rolling out. I was on the fence spending the amount that I did but months after the fact, no regrets.

Well the Cleveland Gaming Classic was a bit underwhelming. Huge show, not many booths actually selling.... ya know, video games?

One thing I did notice among a lot of these collectors today, is the thirst for PS2/GameCube stuff. Collectors were chomping at the bit to get a crack at the tubs of stuff that just didn't hold much appeal to me. Lots of common PS2, GameCube, DS, and to some extent 360/PS3 stuff seemed to be what most collectors out there were thirsting after. Was only like one vendor who had the super premium rare stuff for the truly retro consoles. No one seemed to bother, as everything was priced in the hundreds of dollars, of course. Had a Klonoa for $700, an obligatory mark-up above eBay price for a false sense of "negotiation" room.

I did grab a handful of stuff, but just a bit underwhelming for a city the size of Cleveland to only have like 15 vendors selling games. Any booth not selling video games was thoroughly ignored by most, haha. It's clear that people come to a "Gaming Classic" for the games.

This bit got me. I already saw this game at my local game store for $549 not that long ago but $700 like what?

Off the top of my head, the only one I can think of that I would really like is Revelations: Persona. I do have the remake on PSP but would like to own and play the first one. Granted playing it wouldn't be an issue, but I certainly would like to own it

Mines shipped today. About time.

Mine arrived. How about the rest of you vampire hunters?

It arrived yesterday. I do wish that I ordered the anniversary collection to compliment it.

I've had my Steam Deck since I want to say April, maybe May and I have been loving it so far. Obviously not only because of being able to play PC games on a handheld but also being able to play more demanding emulators on a handheld. For example, I used the SD to play through Yakuza on PS2 for the first time and doing the same thing with Yakuza 2. It's not perfect by any means but it is really damn cool if you like using handhelds.

I myself am waiting for the Steam Dock to be on sale. That said, there is a 3rd party dock that people are vouching for so I am currently waiting for that to arrive. In the mean time, I have this dock I bought from ebay and by all accounts its pretty good but I am sure Steam will have more on theirs to compliment the deck,

I ordered Castlevania: Requiem from them back in February. Just the game itself and it's still in production. What irks me is not so much that it hasnt shipped yet but the fact that it hasn't shipped yet and through Best Buy, they have a listing to pre-order the game like what. They have too much going on and they can't seem to keep up

I mostly have used this site to track my collection which is what it was intended for, and I do check the forums once in a while. Thing is that I rarely for as along i have been a part of this site never start a topic but mostly reply which is fine. I dont post because more often than not I dont think I have any to contribute to nor do I have a response for something.

Can someone please explain to me why the PS4 TMNT Mutants in Manhattan is so dang high? I already have it, but it has gotten up close to $100.
Does anyone have any idea why?

Maybe there's a sudden demand for it and even more so when this game is only available on disc since it was delisted on all store fronts.

Why is it that I've heard people often say that there was no Star Fox game on the GameCube, when there were two and surely Assault counts as a main line entry (although nobody ever mentions that one). I've heard this comment a number of times, maybe they're thinking of the Wii? Wii didn't have Star Fox, but GameCube definitely did. Perhaps Assault is so forgotten that some aren't aware of it's existence?

Star Fox Adventure technically doesn't count by a lot of people if only because of what the game was supposed to be originally in Dinosaur Planet. Rather than let it be, they changed it to give a Star Fox flair if you will without being a Star Fox games. I would imagine that Assault was for the most part ignored due to the sour taste Adventure left. The fact that Wii never got a Star Fox game was weird though. Motion controls to pilot would I think would have worked well.

1. Play more games (Not that I haven't but just general goal thanks to the 52 game challenge)
2. Obtain games I have on my wishlist which leads to my next point...
3. Buy less on impulse (I was doing well until the holidays came but even then much better than years past)

So apparently 1 and 3 are goals I wrote for last year as resolutions so I guess these will become ongoing deals. That and

4. Less clutter: I also listed this in 2020 however I dont feel I did much of a good job. It's not that I obtained more things but rather I didnt get rid as much as I thought I would if not mostly because even though I did some cleaning, its kind of stagnated and then just stopped once I found employment. That said I feel like if I make effort year round to one by one find things to throw away or something then I should be good but who knows.

Edit: Last one I promise

5. This can be tied to my first point of play more games. For this one I would like to play through some of my sealed games. I noticed that there are few mostly on ps4 that have yet to be touched let alone actually opened since purchasing. I never intended on keeping them sealed, its just I never got around to doing so.
