It’s been a long while since we did a monster-sized show.  Consider this your warning:  this is a monster-sized show.

2011 has begun, but before we rush ahead to the onslaught of gaming the coming year promises us, it is right to look back and give thanks for the year that was.  Join us as we bring a full house to the table and discuss our favorites of 2010, and the trends that drove PC gaming over the last twelve months.  You’ll notice we have some long-absent members rejoining us for this episode, and it felt great to have them back.

It seems a little cliche to call any year “The Year of Indie Gaming” at this point – I think everyone has acknowledged, tacitly or explicitly, that small dev shops continue to release quality products and compete well in the gaming marketplace.  That doesn’t lessen the happy surprise I felt when I realized that almost half of the games we brought up as the best of 2010 didn’t come from large developers or publishers.  We talk about a lot of games in this episode, and a lot of them are indie games.  And that’s awesome.

Also, you may be aware we ran a contest!  So we have the results of that.  Yes, of course I’m going to make you listen to find out who it was.  You can skip ahead if you want;  only your conscience will judge you.

Without further ado… welcome to The IMmies 2010!
