It’s New Year’s Eve, and, as usual, I’m stuck in a house devoid of people my own age, in a city devoid of people my own age I know, so I will just cradle a beer and watch Jools Holland tonight. However, tomorrow is a brave new day in a brave new year, and so naturally I have to look back at the past 365 days and have a ponder. Only I need to ponder with a certain frame of mind, because, as this is a PC Gaming site, only things to do with PC gaming will do. So what follows are the tracks of 2008 that ensnared me for at least a week at a time, and were thus playing while I was playing, and are thus inextricably linked with the games I was playing. I’m sure I can try and find some valid links to games too, because that’s what journalists do, and that’s what I’m masquerading as.
