Having achieved this year's ambition of getting my Friendless metric up to 1, I've been thinking about what to aim for next year. The ultimate goal of course is to have a game collection that I'm happy with, that fits in my house, and that I enjoy playing, but I really think to achieve that it has to be consciously managed. So, my ambition for next year is to halve the number of games I own that I've played 0 or 1 times.
That can be either by playing them or by dumping them - either way is fine! As I have leave now and not at the beginning of next year I'm making the resolutions now. So the resolution is to decrease my zero plays to 25 and my single plays to 40. Also, I plan to continue to increase my utilisation to at least 55% (currently 47.33%), but that should happen anyway if I achieve the first part.
Yes, gaming by metrics is silly. The art is in designing metrics that encourage good behaviour.
