Player 2’s 2018 Highlights – Editor’s Choice
Being the last posting day of the year, I thought it was time to highlight something very dear to me, The people of Player 2. I am so proud to have each and every one of these talented contributors working towards making Player 2 the site it is. What is even more important to me is that I can put my hand on my heart say that these are some of the best people I have ever met and it is my distinct pleasure to call them friends.
To celebrate their talents and significant contributions to Player 2, I thought I would go through the year and highlight just one piece from each of them. This one piece may not be technically their “best” piece, but it is the article that I feel best exemplifies their talents and own personal style. These articles, videos and podcasts highlight a group of writers that are second to none and I while I may be biased, would happily put against any group of writers on the planet.
So without any further delay, here are Player 2’s 2018 Highlights, as chosen by the Editor… me. (P.s click on the pictures to go to the articles mentioned)
There was, of course, a whole host of P2 achievements that were shared by the group. The two most notable were our coverage of PAX 2018 and the Player 2 Charity Marathon. Both of these events were a huge success and only further emphasise how wonderful the Player 2 team actually is. We also had a great year with some significant recognition coming our way. James, Hope and Myself were nominated for Journalist of the year at The Australian Games Awards, with Hope going all the way to the final 4. Player 2 was also nominated for best gaming publication at the same awards. Earlier in the year Player 2 was also short-listed for best independent coverage at the Australian Tech Journalism Awards, more commonly referred to as the Lizzies. All of these nominations were a huge honour and a sign to all of us that we are on our way to bigger an better things.
So thank you for joining us for another great year at Player 2 and make sure to come back in 2019 for even more games related fun.
