Was 2013 The Calm Before The Next-Gen Storm?

An opinion column via eGamer in which the author takes a look back on 2013 in the context of gaming, picks some particular moments to talk about, and then looks ahead to next year.

Quote: "In any case we now stand on the brink of a new generation of gaming, and with 2014 fast approaching (seriously, it feels as if January was fucking yesterday, man) the number of uniquely current-gen offerings is dwindling. At the end of the previous generation we got some amazing titles and this time is no different, only it kinda is, because reasons. I’ll get into them in a bit, don’t worry. I will just say for now that this year has been a mild disappointment for me. Intrigue!" (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, BioShock: Infinite, Dead Space 3, Deadpool, DmC: Devil May Cry, Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, PS4, The Last Of Us, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

2013 has been the best year in gaming for a long time.

Gears, Sly, Ratchet, Dead Space, TLOU, Beyond, GTA and that's just naming a few.

Last gen ended with a bang and I'm glad it did as I've moved onto the current gen now (calling 'next-gen' current gen as 3 million of us have these consoles now).

True, but there is a lot just in front of us! A great time to be a gamer!

The first year few months is always the calm before the storm. Takes about 8 months to a year until the true next Gen games come.
