It seems impossible that another year has passed and yet, it has.
We just want to take this time, as we do every year, to thank all our readers for sticking by us, and for being there day after day, week after week, month after month.
As another year draws to a close, we should reflect on what we have, and not obsess about what we don't. In terms of video games, we have two brand new game consoles that just launched; in what other year has that happened in this industry? When was the last time two different game systems launched during the same holiday season? The answer is that it has never happened (at least, I don't think it has). That alone is reason enough to be appreciative of this industry, which has continued to grow and progress.
Sure, there are a few problems we'd like to see erased but for the most part, are we not all entertained? Are we not enjoying ourselves on a routine basis? Are we without games we want to play for very long? Me, I never am. And for that, I am quite thankful. I'm also thankful for all of you, and I'm eternally thankful to an industry that has given me something indescribably special. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! 🙂
