My most rememberable gaming moments from 2016.

I have always paid attention to many websites that have gaming news and content and well it has been interesting this year. So here my are some of moments from the year that are not necessarily good or bad.

1.New Consoles

This was first up mainly because we have new systems being already and it has not been that long, or either it has and I have just been moving aimlessly throughout the year. The Xbox Scorpio, PS4 Pro, and the Nintendo Switch are all new consoles and one of them is already out. Whether this was a good idea or not we all will later find out.

2. No Man’s Sky and the dangers of hype

No one can personally blame Hello Games for the disappointment that was No Man’s Sky, but the people got overly excited about a small team with a little too much ambition. The average player was excited to journey to the center of the Earth in their own personal space ship. Maybe have a few friends along for the journey as you take on random people and enemies in the universe. Almost every gamer had a little too much faith in the indie developers and ultimately it was too much. They are still updating the game but is it too late for it now? A lot of people learned the lesson of following bandwagons and really just being cautiously optimistic.

3. VR hitting consumers

Every Virtual Reality thing came out this year and it has been somewhat fun to people around the internet looking goofy with these things on. VR is very cool even in its somewhat early stages. Me personally I would not buy one now but I would like to try one out.

4. PlayStation Network being down

I have no problem with Sony but please get it together. It became funny after awhile because no one was shocked anymore, but still. Sony needs to do better.

5. Lionhead studio closing

The creators behind Fable and one of Microsofts studios closed its doors and it is always sad when a studio closes its doors. I was really looking forward to them making a next gen fable because the world is amazing. Also, the cancellation of Fable Legends is a big loss to the people who were waiting on it. Lionhead will be missed.

6. Two big series hitting the big screen

Ratchet and Clank and Assassins Creed got movies and I haven’t seen either of them. It is still great that these iconic series got a chance to attempt to try despite the video game movie curse. I hope these movies did the series justice.

These are just a few on the top of my head and might do a part 2 but I hope you enjoyed them.

    I won’t shed a tear over Fable Legends being cancelled, but I did tear up a little when Lionhead closed it’s doors for good. The real Fable games were fantastic, but LIonhead made too many bad ones.

        I’m not a huge New Vegas fan. I prefer Bethesda’s Fallout games.

        I reviewed over my blog if you’re interested in checking it out –

        I thought the game was fantastic and it lived up to my expectations. That being said it has been dumbed down.

        I read it and it filled it was very helpful and the best part you had no spoilers but I am glad they worked on the gameplay a lot even if they did sacrifice some of the better elements. Maybe with next installment they can find that balance between fps and rpg and perfect it.

    There’s the counter argument that the government are saving the trademark holders costs – if nobody can use logos/fancy branding then nobody has to worry about their trademarks being infringed. No more pesky lalsiuts!Awso, doesn’t the argument that people are having their property taken away miss the point that the rights granted by a trademark are exclusionary? There’s no “right to use” as far as I’m aware.
