The 2016 Gamers of The Lost Spark New Year Special

Yep, it’s the end of our first full year of podcasting and so in true gaming pundit form, the Eye of Spark Towers shines out and focuses on the games of 2016 in our 2nd Game of the Year Extravaganza.

It’s gonna be captivating, even enrapture-vating!

But firstly, in the spirit of the New Year descending upon us, here’s a brief retrospective and some offerings of thanks;

Since starting off in May 2015 the Sparks have grown considerably and we are really proud of what we have created, realising our ambition of creating a positive, energetic and objective look into the world of video games and associated technology through our eyes – gamer eyes.

We are absolutely delighted with the brand that we have created – just the two of us – and seeing the show reaching a wider audience over the last year and a half or so has been a real source of joy and excitement for us. It’s a real hard struggle to make a dream a reality especially when starting with nothing. Everything we have done has been voluntary and out of our spare time and with no commercial aid. We are formed on the basis of our iron gaming wills alone!

Special thanks must also, of course, go out to the fantastic James Thomas (@BIGsheep) for agreeing to guest on our show many moons ago now and for enjoying it so much that he has become a regular on the show. For all the appearances and all the input – Thanks James!

Of course, most importantly, we would like to thank You. Our listeners. For turning up, for listening in, for getting involved and helping us grow. Any venture of this type is nothing without an audience and so the biggest appreciation and thanks go to you. We will strive to continue to develop content for you to enjoy and trust us when we say it really is our pleasure to be out there for your listening pleasure. Thanks Guys!

This is our 75th Podcast and interestingly if you were insane enough to play them back in one ginormous playlist, it would run for… 181 hours!

That’s almost 7 and a half days worth of pure gaming chat, speculation and laughter encapsulating the last year and a half. It’s an achievement we are incredibly proud to look back on.

This week, Antony, James and Darren take the time to give the results of their top 3 games of the year after the difficult job of whittling down the many quality titles in what has been a solid year of gaming across the main platforms.

Tune in, not only hear the guys top 3 games of 2016 but also the results of these other challenging categories posed to the guys. Not an easy task and one which certainly caused a head scratch or two in the process of winner picking:

  • Honourable Mention
  • 2016 Missed Opportunity
  • Biggest Disappointment
  • Biggest High Point
  • 2017 Prediction

So, welcome one and all, join in the fun and take a listen and if you like what you hear, stick with us through 2017 – it’s gonna be one heck of a year!
