Comments of the Year 32: Just let us start it over again

And we’ll be good

Thus closes another chapter of gaming, with one of the most exciting years of game releases yet. As we think back on the year, we are also remembering how, halfway through, we got Comments of the Week back as a regular feature. It’s been a lot of fun doing this alongside a few like-minded individuals whom I’ve gotten to know a little better as I’ve worked with them.

This week we thought we would do something similar to our Halloween Special; I’ve gathered up all the members of our little family to share their favorite comments of the year, as well as some new ones. So once again, thank you guys for doing this thing with me and thanks a lot Destructoid Community for your immense contribution in making this thing happen. Couldn’t have done it without you lot.

Happy new year!
