I said this in 2016, then 2016 petered out towards the end of the year.
But is it just me or is 2017 having the best start of any year in video game history?
Honestly, two of my favourite games of the last five years were released within a week of each other — Horizon: Zero Dawn And Breath of the Wild.
Then there's the games I haven't even had time to play: Persona 5, Nioh, Neir: Automata, Mass Effect: Andromeda.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Dawn of War 3 are coming out this week.
Lord have mercy.
I mean, at this point it looks as though we're having one of those years. A magical year. A Mario Galaxy, BioShock, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare year. A Skyrim, Dark Souls year. A 1998, a 2004. They come around like World Cups these years. Maybe we should just hunker up and enjoy the ride while it lasts.
