GAME OVER: 2015 & 2016

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
...whaddaya mean "it's the middle of January..."?

Oh shit. It is. My bad. Well, as they say: better late then never, yes?

In fact you may have noticed 2015's Game Over article is altogether… non-existent. Yeah, whoops. The end of 2015 through... well, pretty much all of 2016 turned out to be some of the worst time in my life, and sadly, I had to prioritize my well being over my well blogging. Thus the poor excuse for a 2016 in my archives, over there. Driving me nuts... 
Anyway, I had intended to come back and post a G.O. super late last year as well, but it just didn't work out for me, and eventually I gave up and decided I would just mash 2015 and 2016 together! It kind of made sense to me at the time, since 2016 was lined up to be the year that 2015 was supposed to be. Then, as per usual, I missed the 2016 deadline as well. Typical Burton! I considered skipping another year but in addition to feeling like a failure, I figured if I'm going to allow myself to cheat you like that, I may as well just cancel the blog forever. But I'm not cool with that. I quite like these year end summaries of mine...

And here we are. Hello. Happy 2017! Even if you're still writing '2016' on everything, like me. But I hope the past year hasn't sucked as much for you as it has for me and And Then She Games. But I must admit, I'm rather impressed with how well my 'little website that could' is doing. I never really comprehended the thought of there being this much content on my site, and it seems to be leaving its grimy little footprints all over the web. Regardless of my truancy, my traffic has been pretty consistent, and I learn fantastic little things from my analytics all the time, like the person who found my site by googling "Seymour's stupid hair". You, my friend, are my favorite person ever.
I must extend my thanks to all the loyal readers, and the folks who share my stuff with their unwitting friends, the pals who retweet me when I inform the universe of the occasional update, and the randos who google Seymour and decide to click on me anyway. Thanks for keeping ATSG alive, and for giving me the hope and motivation I need to keep doing this, even when I can't.

So let's relive the past together in this massive, tardy, two-year retrospective in gaming!
