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! 🙂

Time for my not-quite-annual check in from grandma's house! Now 33 years old, deep into a challenging and rewarding career, engaged to an amazing woman, and always getting more and more immersed in "real" world commitments and interests,I am still so in love with video games. No matter how imperative life gets, how amazing or terrifying it is every day, I freaking love this stuff. And you all are a big part of my enjoyment, and that's totally serious — first off, big thanks to Ben for cultivating one of the better online gaming forums you will find. We can talk like civil human beings here, and I truly get excited when I see posts from quite a few of you on the big gaming stories of the day, and also the hypotheticals and editorials Ben likes to post.

Second, let me just sincerely thank all of you for sharing in this great hobby with me. It's a pretty amazing time to play video games, and I feel truly lucky I found this place years ago, a place full of other fellows who felt something REAL when immersed themselves in this or that game. Here's to a great 2014, everyone! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! See you all soon!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and if you are an atheist may you be blessed with some form of cosmic justice and the humanity found in this season.

I got my PS4 (and a couple messages of congrats from you folks) and I love it, it's a very sweet piece of tech that I look forward to discussing with you all in the next year and onward. 🙂

Thanks to Ben for the site and letting me both post and write here, and to the members and visitors for our civil, heated, hilarious, and even angst-ridden conversations and arguments day in and day out.

And thank you all for reading the things that I write as I try to find my voice as a contributor to both PSXE and this wonderful gaming industry that has become a part of our greatest memories of holidays past and hopes for holidays to come.

May the camaraderie you all find in your hobby sustain you in both the difficult and wonderful times that will surely come.

Happy holidays and happy new year to everyone. I read this site's articles and comments everyday. I'd love to contribute more, heck, I'd love to just game more, but you know, life and the needs and demands of my growing family have taken over…
Thank you to Ben, David and all the regular contributors for keeping things interesting, mature and entertaining.

Shadow Fall is the exact opposite of Killzone 3. Love it, don't know what the fussy disappointments are about.

That's some good news to hear! I've been trying to tell everyone to took the criticism from 3 and made it better! Excellent job they did. Glad you are enjoying it.

The only thing that is troubling about it is the AI, I'm thinking that must have something to do with having bigger, more complex maps because Crysis has the same problem but KZSF's AI isn't comically bad like Crysis, it's just troubled.

I would like to wish Happy Holidays to everybody here and to once again thank Ben for giving me another chance and understanding my plight. He is a bigger man than I could ever be.

I love my PS4 and I'm looking forward to its bright future. I'm up to 8 games in my collection. Ironically, I have yet to put one disc in the machine; everything has been played digitally. With my fast connection and the power of the PS4, it takes very little time to download games.

Ugh ya know what I'm totally against digital download. But I'm seriously thinking about downloading Need 4 Speed to check it out. Even though it's not much work the convenience of not having to switch discs keeps running through my head. So I'm coming around. Merry Christmas!
