Community Voice: What Are You Thankful For?

Community Voice: What Are You Thankful For?

Thanksgiving is finally here, and that means food, football, and family.  It’s also a time for us to sit down and reflect on what we are grateful for in our lives. Of course, for most people things like health and security are at the top of their lists, but we here at Vivid Gamer are curious as to what your thankful for in regards to gaming.

Personally, I’m thankful I finally have a good gaming computer and have had the opportunity to be exposed to so many great games on every platform from console to PC to handheld to iOS. I only wish I had more time to spend on these great titles, as 2011 was a particularly great year for video games, with stellar titles releasing nearly every month for every platform, regardless of how you like to game. I’m particularly grateful that I have been able to have some great experiences on my DS, even if that handheld is near retirement, and on my iPhone/iPad, which takes gaming to a whole new level. So far I definitely think my favorite games of the year have been Pokemon Black/White, Professor Layton and the Last Specter, and Tiny Tower.

As you gather around this year, what great games are you grateful for? What things happened this year that make you grateful to be a gamer? Let us know in the comments.
