I, Gamer: Improper Relations

They say a year is a long time in politics. It could be argued (after 2012) that a year is akin to a millennia in gaming. The industry has been turned upside down in the space of 12 months. Storied names have forsaken Triple-A development in droves; the collapse of a video game company put an entire state on financial alert; one of the major publishers declared itself bankrupt; violent video games have once again been blamed as the catalyst for the actions of the mentally ill; Kickstarter has gone from being the saviour of indie gaming to being the piggy bank for all and sundry; the ethics of video game journalism were brought into stark focus as the line between being a gamer and a journalist was drawn. It has become its own entity and shall forever be known as the Robert Florence Affair). (Industry, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)
