Game developers share their New Year's resolutions 2

In the spirit of the holiday, we asked @Gamasutra's Twitter followers (you can become one right now!) to tell us about their dev-related New Year's resolutions.

As 2016 winds down, we find ourselves reflecting on the highlights of the past year and planning for the year ahead.

In the spirit of the holiday, we asked @Gamasutra's Twitter followers (you can become one right now!) to tell us about their dev-related New Year's resolutions. We braced ourselves for the inevitable joke responses, like "1024x768". That never gets old! But many replied with actual resolutions that had nothing to do with screen pixels.

We present a list of those resolutions below, broken down into categories. If you're interested in participating in Gamasutra's next Twitter question, make sure you head over to @Gamasutra and click that follow button.
