Warning Temperature Critical

Here we are in the midst of the gaming blockbuster season and the temperature is rising.

Here we are in the midst of the gaming blockbuster season and the temperature is rising. What a year it has been for games; The Witcher 3, Rocket League, Metal Gear Solid V, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, Fallout 4, Project Cars, Tomb Raider, Halo 5 and many more unbelievable titles, some of which have yet to come.

Now, I think it is a good opportunity to have a think back to them all. As gamers with so much passion and excitement there has been no shortage of arguments over which is best, what this game did right or wrong compared to the others and so on.

Every game has had their turn at taking the heat, this week it’s Fallout 4 and last week it was Halo 5. Criticism and arguments are to be expected, all’s fair in love and war, after all.

But before we move into the war zone that will be the Game of the Year discussions, perhaps we should take a moment to stop and thank all the developers that poured their hearts and souls into making these games for us.

They do a hard job, a labour of love for a lot of them, sometimes not all of it goes to plan for sure. There’s glitches and bugs and delays, sometimes reality can’t match up with the ambition and determination that the dev team shows.

But they do their best, so that you and me have these amazing games to play.

Time then to take 5 minutes, go on Twitter or your email device and send them a thank you for all their hard work.

Thank CD Projekt Red for The Witcher 3, Psyonix for Rocket League or 343 Industries for Halo 5.

Thank each and every one of them for their time and dedication to making you an awesome game to play.

Thanks for reading.
