The Top 7... New Year's Resolutions for the world of games

As gamers, we are a passionate bunch. We discuss, we argue, we bitch and we implore. But at root, we do it all because we love gaming. So let’s focus a little more on that root.

As we’ve got older we’ve become more and more interested in the culture, politics, technicalities and wider issues surrounding gaming, and that’s only natural and healthy. But it wasn’t that stuff that made us love games in the first place. It was the simple fact that they’re awesome. So lets lay down the caps lock for a bit. Lets forget about about screen resolutions and exclusives and just have some fun. At least for a bit anyway. We don’t want things to get boring, after all. Flames back on mid-January then?

Long-time GR+ writer Dave has been gaming with immense dedication ever since he failed dismally at some '80s arcade racer on a childhood day at the seaside (due to being too small to reach the controls without help). These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
