The arrival of a new year is a chance to establish and work towards a new set of goals. At this time of the year, you’re filled with that motivation and drive to achieve anything.
I’ve been thinking a lot about what goals I would like to work towards to keep me focused for the coming year. I think I’ve come up with some great ones.
By setting goals that are measurable and achievable, I’m hoping this will lead to me smashing these goals.
What’s more, by actually talking about it, I’m going to be held accountable to all of you which will add to my motivation to keep on track when times are tough.
With all that said, let’s talk about my gaming goals for 2020.
My Goals for Gamercreatrix in 2020
One of the main goals I have for Gamercreatrix in 2020 is to set a focus on PlayStation gaming for beginners. This means creating content that is tailored to new gamers or those new to PlayStation.
This is because since starting the Gamercreatrix blog in 2018, I’ve basically travelled that journey from a beginner gamer. That’s why I believe I have some good insight to share with new gamers. This also will encourage me to continue learning and growing as a gamer.
For those that don’t know, I used to play PS1 and PS2 heavily as a kid but as I grew up, moved out of home and got a job, gaming seemed to fall by the wayside for me.
That was until I made the decision to get back into gaming by buying a PS4 and Ratchet and Clank. As soon as I started up the console and loaded the game, I was back in.
Not long after that, I decided to set up the Gamercreatrix blog to talk about the things I was learning about video games.
Since then, the blog has gone through a number of iterations and changes. I now have a YouTube channel and a podcast that I’m hoping will grow more in the future.
With all of that said, I hope this refocus on PlayStation gaming for beginners will be a positive one and one that provides you all with helpful and entertaining content.
To expand on how I deliver content to you
You may be well aware if you follow me on social media that I have recently started producing videos for my YouTube channel. You may also notice that I now produce and share a podcast as well.
In 2020 I will be aiming to grow these channels and use them as a way to provide you with great content in lots of different ways.
By doing this I will be able to grow my skills in video and audio production to see where that may take me. As well as this, my continued improvement will hopefully mean better quality content which is my main goal here.
To engage with the community of gamers more
Something I struggle with a little bit is engaging with everybody in the communities that I am a part of. I do this a good bit on Instagram but I could always improve.
At the end of the day the gaming community is one that I am lucky and grateful to be a part of so I want to make more friends through this.
In terms of how to achieve this, I will be aiming to join some discord servers to be able to engage that way with people. Depending on how that goes and depending on how Gamercreatrix grows next year I may even start a Discord server of my own! Let me know if you’d be interested in seeing that happen.
I will also aim to be a lot more active and engaging with people on my Instagram and Twitter channels so be prepared for that!
Part of being not the most social person is definitely why I am reluctant to start discussions with people but I’m hoping that by setting this goal for myself, I’ll step out of my comfort zone and meet some great people who share my interests.
I have a pretty cool Teespring page where you can buy the gaming related designs I’ve created. You can buy t-shirts, hoodies and even socks featuring these designs!
Take a look if you are interested as I add more designs all the time.
I have set up a Ko-Fi page where you can support my work by buying me a cup of tea.
If you follow me there, you’ll also get first look access to my content and behind the scenes updates which I am super excited to share with you.
Gaming Challenge – My PlayStation Hits
Honestly the biggest reason I had for creating this post was because of the gaming challenge I want to set for myself in 2020.
I have done some gaming challenges before but nothing to this scale, so I’m super excited to share this with you.
As 2020 will be the last year before the next gen PS5 console, I thought it would be a great idea to celebrate the games of the PS4. With that in mind I thought about the games that epitomize that console, and the PlayStation Hits games came to mind.
With that in mind I am challenging myself to play through all of the games in the PlayStation Hits collection in 2020. Exciting right!?
I’m going to be playing through the list of PlayStation Hits games in the EU collection which I have gathered from my research is slightly different in each region.
Here is a link to the list for reference: PlayStation Hits List
I’ll be playing through each game and sharing updates with you along the way of how I’m getting on. I am also hoping to make this an engaging experience as possible. I am really looking forward to having you join along with me using the hashtag #myplaystationhits.
In order to track my progress I’ve created a checklist that I can check off as I finish each game. You can download this checklist for yourself below. Definitely consider doing this if you’re going to follow along with me.
I’ll be starting this gaming challenge on January 1st so stay tuned for updates as I progress.
Well that covers things for my gaming goals for 2020. I truly hope you are as excited as I am to get started. Hopefully you have been motivated to set some gaming goals for yourself! Let me know what they are in the comments below.
To summarize what I talked about in this post, I shared with you my gaming goals for 2020.
My gaming goals for 2020 are to:
- Refocus Gamercreatrix to PlayStation gaming for beginners and beyond
- Expand how I deliver information to you in the form of YouTube videos and podcasts
- Engage with the gaming community more actively
- Complete the My PlayStation Hits gaming goal of playing through all games in the PlayStation Hits (EU) collection
Let’s smash it!
