This was the first time I tried my hand at some gaming goals in a good while. I did feel a little pressured to get them all done, but I’m also pleased with the outcome of rising to the challenge. How did I do? Let’s find out!

One of my goals this year is to try to get as much out of my PC Game Pass subscription as I can. So during the month of March, I vowed to try at least one new game a week. Here’s how this turned out for me!

In my previous post I wrote about how I had picked up the newest Sims 4 expansion (which I’ve really enjoyed) and that I’d rediscovered my Bad to Good Challenge family to explore it.

It’s been a long time since I’ve written out gaming goals like this, but I feel like I’ve of a mindset to start this up again – at least for this month. We’ll see if I feel like following up on it again next month.
