Inq. of the Week: 2007 vs. 2008

Keep on the Shadowfell coverLast week, we asked if the winter months = more gaming. While most of you don’t change your gaming habits, there were plenty of you who said you game all the much more when there’s snow on the ground, whether it be from more time at home or just the lack of schoolwork.

  1. […] Two weeks ago we asked if everyone has hopes for 2008 out-shining good old 2007 and it looks like 76% of you are excited to see what the new year will bring. Then last week Dave wanted to find out what the best games of 2007 were, with his own picks (biases aside) being Rock Band and the excellent board game Space Dealer. Other’s answers included Wii Sports, D&D, Guitar Hero 3, more Rock Band, Civ 4, and rounding out with some good old-fashioned D&D. […]
