I'm very happy to see the back of 2018. It hasn't been a good year for many reasons: difficult personally, nearly fatal for my family, and certainly not the easiest professionally.
But the creativity and cleverness of video games has always provided a welcome respite, with 2018 providing many smiles and surprises from studios big and small.
2018’s games have blindsided me in many different ways, but one thing remains true: video games are straight up digital magic.
