We’re into 2020 now, and that means it’s the year of hindsight. (That is also the last time I’m allowed to make that joke, so mark the occasion.) There’s a thing about hindsight, though. Sure, it’s about looking backwards, but it’s also about looking forwards and using the lessons of the past to inform the future. You might look back and see things that you did that you wish you hadn’t… but you can also see wherein you’re doing the same things and expecting different results.
For my own purposes, for example, one of the lessons I’m taking away from 2019 is that I’d rather have things done. A bunch of times in MMOs, I wanted to start doing Project X, but starting on that required already finishing projects A, B, and C, which I had put off until I wanted to do them. If I know something’s going to be an involved project, it makes more sense to get it out of the way earlier, most of the time. What about you? What gaming lessons from 2019 are you bringing forward into the year?
