2021

Jan 01, 2022

Well, it's 2022 and everything is turning out exactly as I predicted back when I was 7. Self-driving cars, space stations, the internet. Nailed it.

Favorite TV show of 2021 was Only Murders in the Building.

Favorite game of 2021 was Loop Heroes.

Favorite book of 2021 was Einstein's Fridge.

Favorite rediscovered joy of 2021 was reading physical books.

Favorite movie of 2021 was Dune.

Favorite time waster of 2021 was watching physics videos on YouTube.

Least favorite movie of 2021 was anything with f**king superheroes.

Favorite pandemic of 2021 was Covid-19 (three years running).

See you in an exciting 2022 where everyone will be nice and respectful and personal agendas are put aside for the greater good and we all come together and save the planet.

Either that or a horrific dystopian post-apocalyptic world where we hunt each other for food.

2022 could go either way.

Either way, Happy New Year!

Luke94 Jan 01, 2022
Either way sounds fun to me

some dude Jan 01, 2022
They're not even watching the TV. Spot on!

Seguso Jan 01, 2022
Happy new year Ron! Are you still working on that adventure game? Just yes or no will do :)

Phillipe Jan 01, 2022
Happy new year my friend! Fingers crossed we get to hang out again soon.

Ali Gumble Jan 01, 2022
Frohes Neues Jahr!

I strained to think of something I enjoyed in 2021. I continue to be thankful for the hard work that goes into the many open source projects out there, especially the creative/artistic ones like Blender and Krita. Having creative outlets is extremely rewarding and important. Happy New Years to all.

Hi Ron! I pirated Maniac Mansion 32 years ago. :)

LichiMan Jan 01, 2022
Thanks for this list.
Happy new year!

Brian Jan 01, 2022
Happy New Year Ron!

Patrick Paquet Jan 02, 2022
Happy new year, Ron! Keep it up! We love you!

Patrick Paquet Jan 02, 2022
TrX, so did I, but I bought TWP twice and gave Ron an extra 5$ to make up for it.

Sven Jan 02, 2022
Happy new year! Please recommend more physics books.

DieSkaarj Jan 02, 2022
To an even better 2022 with altruism! Hopefully with less cannibalism. And, more creativity (just not from Alexa or other adjacent AI.)

Herman Toothrot Jan 02, 2022
BTW, what again was the title of the game you are currently working on? 🧐

Nathan Jan 02, 2022
Happy new year, Ron. Any new releases coming? :)

Johan Windh Jan 02, 2022
Couldn't agree more. Especially with super hero movies. 🤮

Only Murders in the Building was pretty fun.

Have a good one, 2022.

Happy New Year Ron! Like many others, I'm looking forward to your next game.

Emma Jan 02, 2022
Covid-19 truly is unbeatable in the pandemic department. Nothing else gets a look in. Happy New Year Ron.

Speaking of good shows, Ron, I am watching Star Trek: Enterprise at the moment on Netflix and I can recommend it. I remember a discussion on your blog about dystopian Sci-Fi and how Star Trek Discovery is so much worse than former ST shows. I think Star Trek: Enterprise has flaws, a bad theme, so it is not Next Generation, but it is a nice little show that still follows old school utopian and explorative motifs; well at least so far, have watched 15 episodes now. Anyway, happy new year and don't forget to release that game soonish. :)

Great pick with Only Murders. I wonder if Station Eleven is eligible since the seasons not over. It might be my pick, definitely the best book I read in 2021, too

Nik Jan 02, 2022
I just hate it when they split the last part of a trilogy in two. The Delta wave had no proper ending.

Elena Hitomi Jan 03, 2022
Happy New Year, Ron, Pep, and family! You should be called "Ronstradamus" for all your accurate predictions haha

Sergio Jan 03, 2022
Well, at least when it comes to movie taste... you are not alone

Kassandra Jan 04, 2022
Utopia: But Musks wants us to transport in claustrophobic tunnels if we're allowed to leave the Metaverse at all. Of course the elight will travel in planes and spaceships everywhere like their politicians and the military's drones and robots. '... hunt each other for being food.'

Then again, I'm looking forward to the party on 2.2.2222.

David Jan 05, 2022
A post-apocalyptic world where we hunt each other for food ought to be a lot of fun, lol.

video gamer Jan 05, 2022
Any other great game recommendations from 2021?

Patricio Jan 20, 2022
Very surprised of your hate for superheros movies when you placed Thor: Ragnarok as your favorite 2017 movie.

Only Murders was very good and the Spanish Influenza still holds the key to my heart, cheers!
