My gaming plans for 2023
I got a few games from the Steam Winter Sale. Mostly city-building/management type games, plus The Oregon Trail.
Some of the new games, in addition to a few I currently have, I need to do a bit of learning how to play them.
A few of the games I’d like to play/stream this year are:
City builders: In addition to City Skylines, I’ll play Banished, Endzone, Anno 1800, and a few others. There are more games I haven’t gotten yet, but I want. Some have a historical setting, others have a scifi/futuristic setting or a post-disaster setting. Since a few games I need to learn, there may be many game restarts as I learn new things about them. I’ve been flipflopping whether or not I want to get Surviving Mars, since several of the DLC have mixed/negative reviews. But I may at least get that game plus the Green Planet DLC because I find the idea of terraforming Mars fascinating.
The Sims 2 and 3: I have a few things I need to set up for these games, and then I want to stream them. I’m thinking of playing various households, switching around, sort of like a soap opera. I also plan to create sims of regular viewers and friends.
Persona 4 Golden/Persona 5: I never finished my first playthrough of 4, but I intend to start again from the beginning. I love this game. Hopefully later this year, after I finish 4, I’ll get 5.
Forza Horizon 4/5: Normally, racing games haven’t interested me, but Forza is actually fun.
Planet Coaster/Planet Zoo: I need to learn more how to play these, and get more DLC, but these look fun.
Red Dead Redemption 2: When I started earlier last year, I had difficulty with the controls and kept dying. I’m more interested in the online portion because I can create a custom character. But I worry about playing it because I’ve read stories about hackers. So I’m not yet sure about playing this.
Tropico 4 and 6: I love Tropico 4 and want to try 6 more as well.
Switch games: Mostly Animal Crossing, Pokemon Shield, and Pokemon Scarlet.
Other games: The Wandering Village, Two Point Campus and Two Point Hospital, Stray, The Stanley Parable, Star Trek Online, various scifi games, Jackbox Games, Civilization VI, The Oregon Trail, Evil Genius 2, various retro games, and maybe others.
