Every year we hope for the best. The best is very rarely achieved and often each year become a disappointment - it becomes medicore at best.
2008 was mediocre.
2009 was mediocre.
2010 was terrible.
2011 was a fucking nightmare.
2012 was mediocre.
2013 was mediocre.
2014 was mediocre (until the GamerGate controversy, terrible day for the gaming industry).
2015 was terrible!
2016 was a total disaster!
2017? I don't expect it'll be any less like it's predecessors.
Another new year of mediocrity folks! Let's hope I can prove myself wrong.
