2017 HOW FOR YOU WAS IT FOR YOU
STE C
Well here we go again dudes, hopefully this thread will be a bit busier than the last few years.

2017 THE GOOD

PS4 Pro & Xbox X, really these should have been the specs of the original consoles but better late than never. Cool having pc type options for framerate ,performance ect. Looking good for all future games being 60frs in the future.

Healthy n pretty happy with great wife and 3 legged dog.

Still financially secure and job is ticking over ok. Can still afford to be semi retired at 43 and work part time.

Shenmue 3 being put back until 2018 and getting extra funding/new publisher so it will hopefully be the game Suzuki wants to make.

Completed my retro collecting forever as have all the games I want esp MVS and PC Engine.

Got a Pandoras Box jamma pcb with loads of amazing arcade games inc all NG/Capcom titles.

Winning my fight against prescription pill addiction, well 80% there.

THE BAD

Islam and terrorism in the UK many innocent people killed which disgusts me. Islam beginning to be seen in city I live in.

Nintendo Switch, good little machine but sold it after 4 months as I dident loose much money on it. Its future looks rosy but it simply will not host a lot of the games I like and would be gathering dust due to PS4 Pro/Xbox X.

Gained weight and now the heaviest I have ever been at 12st, ideal for my height but can no longer fit into a lot of expensive clothing I own. Really struggling to get it off.

That picture in the papers of Indians throwing fireballs and hot oil at elephants, the middle east treats animals terribly.

Animal cruelty in general getting worse.

My wife had to have painful operation on back.

Lack of really great new videogames. SNK come on more 2D content please.

Drank far to much this year but intend to cut down to once a week next year.
 
cthulhu
Not a lot of stuff going on this year.

The good:
Passing my first Aikido exam.
A lot of other Aikido related things (my son having passed two exams short after each other).
Buying a nice new paintball marker that looks like an AK-47
Having a great time playing a lot of paintball and specially magfed paintball.
Nice holidays to Barcelona and the U.K.
The start of a Necromunda gang.
Finding a game I was looking for, for quite a while thanks to green beret.

The bad:
The ever growing stupidity of the human race.
A bad Ebay buy that cost me quite a lot of money.
My arcade stuff

"ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn! Ia! Ia! Cthulhu fhtagn!"
 
RiKo
Good

Arcade Boards: Finally got Rainbow Islands and getting very close to a proper R-Type.

Trump - made the news entertaining

Ebay Sales - I've managed to sell half of my old possessions on Ebay. Including many old Amiga games for a good price.

Neo Geo - is just continually good. Finally got to play the latest version of Gunlord this year, which I like a lot.

The Spectrum Next - hoping it starts a trend and leads to a new BBC Micro

Bad

Brexit - not a big fan. Already items in shops cost more and there is whole load of unnecessary complication to sort through. Also just when the EU had done a free trade deal with Japan... Dammit

Trump - for obvious reasons.

Friends' weddings - they are like funerals for good friends.

My Rent - is ridiculously high. And why I need good Ebay sales.

Acid attacks and stabbings - Terrorism can't compete. Why so slow to deal with these UK government?

I'm happy to see this thread still going strong year after year - thanks STE for keeping it rollin' and all the others for sharing their thoughts too.

What first seemed like a horrible year to me, actually turned out quite fine. I think from all perspectives it was an interesting year that showed that in every failure also lays a new opportunity to make up for it.

THE BAD

- Failed college exams once
- Very busy first half of the year for me
- In general everyone I know seemed to be pretty busy all the time
- No new Neo Geo games
- Still steadily growing AES prices
- Generally nothing much on Neo Geo or retro game news
- PC died after 6 years of trusty services
- War and unrest is once again on the brink in some corners of the earth

THE GOOD

+ Family and friends in good health
+ Found new job and got into a alternative major / study course
+ Acquired a big chunk of new IT and business knowledge
+ New PC, this time built from scratch
+ A 2 week motorbike and scuba diving trip to Indonesia - still better than nothin'
+ The experience that the less you meet your friends, the more it makes it clear how important they are and how much you appreciate them after not seeing them for a long time
+ Some unexpectedly great gaming experiences
+ ISIS was de facto militarily beaten in Syria, Iraq and in Marawi. It's not all bad news from these corners.
