For Steam, for enabling devs to sell games on PC without fear of running the gauntlet of the retail market.

That I have a great job and understanding wife that allows me to buy any platform I want, seeing as how video games can be an expensive hobby.

I'm thankful for the games themselves: 20 years later, and I am still playing them, still getting enthralled, transported to new worlds, going on adventures I never would have been able to otherwise. I am thankful to the games that let me tell stories, my own stories, games that make me feel like I am a kid again, giddy with the thrill of exploration, saving the world, or scoring a goal, or endangering all visitors in my zoo.

I am just thankful that games exist. After all is said and done, and all the fanboyism trolling is put aside, this hobby means a lot to me, and I am glad that today, more than ever, it is bigger and better than ever before.

I'm not thankful for anything when it comes to games. They're just.... Games..... I'm only thankful for my friends though, that we play online multi-player to keep our friendship alive.

Well, my Xbox 360 is only partially broke, so I got that going for me, which is nice........

#16 Edited by PernicioEnigma (5271 posts) -

Frictional Games, CD Projekt Red, Firaxis, Paradox Interactive, Bohemia Interative, and other PC focused devs which make gaming worth a damn for me, otherwise I'd be outta here...

#17 Posted by FinalFighters (1356 posts) -

im thankful for MS releasing a 720p console that cost $500, giving SONY the edge.

Im thankful for Sony being with gamers from the start with the PS4!

Im thankful that Sony is always willing to take risks with all kinds of different games and makes it a point to offer variety in their line ups.

Im thankful for the wonderful, gaming-centric, consumer-friendly Playstation brand!

Im thankful for what Sony created with the PS4 -built by gamers for gamers, 100$ cheaper 50% more powerful etc

Im thankful for my PS4! Still loving my PS4 like I did on the first day!

And most of all,

Im thankful for the Naughty Gods making master piece after master piece for us.

Naughty Dog is the reason why i continue to love to play games!

Im thankful that Sony always allows Naughty Dog to do their thing and make the games they want to make too

Oh and I WILL be really thankful when the PS4 crushes the xbone, and the anti-consumer Microsoft finally gets thrown the fuck outta gaming for good...once and for all.....thats HOW competition works;) That is whats good for competition xbots.

As for not gaming related...

Im thankful to have such a loving caring family..

Im thankful for life....that im alive....

And im thankful that Jesus died on the cross for my sins.

I very much agree with this, in particular, the mediocrity of the AAA industry.

You're a kiwi, ain't ya?

#23 Posted by getyeryayasout (7055 posts) -

Master Chief, Naughty Dog, the DS4, and for having the thumb dexterity of a god, I am thankful. Also for wearable, computerized hairpieces. Thank you Sony.

#24 Edited by Halosball (104 posts) -

^ cant believe I forgot about the DS4!

The DS4 is the grestest controller i have ever used

p.s Halo is massively over rated though. Master Chief as a character is generic cliche contrived tripe too.

Destiny does look intriguing to me however..

I am thankful that when I say the Xbox One is better than Ps4, it really is. I dont have one but man what would I do to play Killer Instinct. No Ps4 exclusive interests me. Kingdom Hearts 3 is the only one that does.

#29 Posted by Spartan070 (16326 posts) -

The revival of Killer Instinct.

Next: Bloody Roar and Powerstone plz

I'm thankful for Demons Souls. This precious little game from Japan with zero marketing and only a tiny publisher support, rejected by suits, found and appreciated by gamers, literally saved gaming itself.

#38 Posted by _Matt_ (8837 posts) -

I'm thankful I have a working pair of eyes and ears, and 2 hands with fully working fingers and thumbs that let me game.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. I've driven along Vice City streets with Billy Jean blaring out on the radio. I've emerged out of a vault into the bright sunlight of a nuclear wasteland. I've seen a nuke explode from a helicopter and died in sight of it. I've scaled the towers of Jerusalem and watched the living city below. I've travelled into Mexico on horseback for the sake of my family. I've flew towards the light at the mountain top, sometimes with a friend and other times alone. I've travelled into multiple universes to reclaim my lost daughter. I've fought the walking dead only to succumb at the end. I've defeated reapers and saved the universe. I've travelled across America, protecting a girl and even saw some Giraffes. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die.

... and for 10 bonus points can you name the games from all the above?
