Friday Night Fights: Welcome to December

Game with the Dtoid community

*Bonus points to those who get the picture / title tie-in.

Happy Friday everyone, and welcome to December, 2014!

Now that all the major game releases are over, we can all sit back and reflect on what an amazing year it’s been for gaming. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve had an awesome year, and have played some ridiculously good games.

From consoles, to handhelds to PC gaming, this year had a whole lot of everything for me, and I honestly couldn’t be happier to be a gamer right now.

Over the next few weeks, “Game of the Year” lists will start going up all over the place, I guess this is as good a time as ever to start thinking about those amazing experiences you had, and what you felt like was the absolute best of the best in 2014.

As for me, I’ll be posting my favorites a little later in the month, it’s going to be tough though, I’m not sure if I can honestly choose a “favorite” this year, I may have to do a top five favorites, hell, may even have to extend that to ten…we’ll see.

Anyway, let’s get to why you’re here, the games! 

Friday Night Fights

New to FNF? Read this! Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It’s a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!

The planning for FNF starts in the forums, where community members sign up to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up in the community blogs thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers, and I recap it all here on the front page to give it a bit more exposure.

To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! If you’d rather host something yourself, sound off in the comments section below!
