2013 was an intense roller coaster ride of a year, filled with highs and lows right from beginning to end. Not only was I player/coach of my hometowns returning footy side. It was also my first year as a home owner with a daunting amount of debt weighing over my head. Each day as I fronted up to my day job, I needed something to keep me enthused and something to look forward too. Apart from coming home each day to the amazing love of my dearest partner, I had video games. gahsh
Video games have always been a huge passion of mine and to many of my mates, my name and PlayStation are synonymous. 2013 was an amazing year of games and for me personally I bought 4 consoles. An updated PS3 after my original unfortunately succumbed to the “yellow light of death”. A PS2 to relive some of the gaming glory days with my dearest brother and a PS Vita, fortunately I found both for a steal on eBay. Finally my last purchase was the PS4.
I still remember the day that the PS4 was announced. I was working on site, in a location that had next to nothing in terms of phone reception. Every chance I got I was trawling anywhere for news on the details of the announcement in a desperate attempt to my feed my curiosity. From that day, I knew 2013 was going to be an amazing year for gamers worldwide.
