Happy 2016, friends! I hope everyone had a safe and silly ringing in of the new year.
I managed to stay awake until midnight (a feat in and of itself), then promptly fell asleep for ten hours.
Look at me go.
However I feel pretty good because on this first day of this new year, I managed to put into practice some of my recently made gaming resolutions. I have to say, it felt pleasantly productive. Now the challenge is in putting those changes into regular practice and turning them into a habit. It apparently takes three weeks to form a habit, and I feel like that’s a manageable chunk of time.
When I think about what 2016 holds (game-wise) I’m genuinely excited. There are so many games we know about (and who knows how many we don’t) on schedule for release this year, and I think we are in for some fascinating experiences.
If I had to call out one game in particular that leads my excite-o-meter, it’s Dishonored 2. The first game took me by surprise and I loved it. I can’t wait to see where the sequel takes us.
But most of all, I can’t wait to find out what certain developers are working on. I’d love to hear more from the following in particular:
Sucker Punch Productions
Irrational Games (in whatever form the company currently exists)
So with that I ask: what are you looking forward to in 2016? A specific game that’s already been announced? An announcement from a particular developer? Or are you hoping for a happy surprise out of the blue?
No matter what you hope for, I wish each of you a safe and prosperous new year.
