All of these industry icons. Made a huge impact on the gaming industry, through their innovated work and professionalism. They have contributed greatly to the gaming industry with is worth £70 billion pounds in the United Kingdom alone. I am hopeful and excited for the next year of gaming.  I predict 2017 will be an even bigger year for video games many new IP’s will be released and 2016, games such as Overwatch and Street Fighter 5 bring competitors together to compete in fierce battle for the highest achievements, such as cash prices. But most importantly the title and honour of being known as an OG champion at gaming tournaments, I would like to congratulate everyone who won and also the gamers like you and me who make up the gaming industry buying, selling and playing all our favourite video games.
