THE FINAL ROUND!
We are in the FINAL stage now people! We are about to fight the GAME BOSS now, people! Are y’all ready to make some
Steems delicious, new, awesome #gaming articles????
For this exercise, imagine that the GAME BOSS’ HP bar can only be brought down by posts submitted to the contest!
So, LAST THURSDAY … @archdruid wrapped up our 2000s contest and there were many great articles, even MORE new authors joining the #gaming tag who had never created #gaming contents before and it was really great and wonderful ! There were insightful gaming articles, funny reviews, fanarts, …… haikus….. and even a steamy fiction !!!! OH ME OH MY !
And now, we are at the precipice of the FINAL BATTLE! Will you all let the SEMI-FINAL to be the actual and real FINAL to this saga???? OR…..
WILL YOU MAKE THIS FINAL ROUND THE GREATEST BATTLE YET???
Welcome to the PRESENT DECADE era!
FIFTH and FINAL ROUND: 2010 to PRESENT TIME (future time is not included, sorry)
- You are to create a post about a game from the 2010s (2010 to NOW) :D
Finally! We have arrived at the PRESENT ERA! This decade is a
hot mess… ahem, another respectable continuation to the emerging subculture that is Geekery and #Gaming. Yep. This decade remains dominated by the same major players from the previous decade (we need new protag, guys), and casual gaming continues its ascendancy (oh no). Mobile Phones became a new battle arenamarket for time-poor adults who keep trying to latch into #gaming well into their adulting journeys. We are also seeing the advent of Virtual Gaming !

The post does not need to be about a game review or a video of actual gameplay!
You can do fanart, or fanfic, or commentary piece about a game's soundtrack, or a cosplay of a character from a game that was released in the 2010s, or photography post with your collection of oldie-but-goodie games, ... you get the idea, right? MASH THEM ALL UP IN ONE POST!!! ANYTHING GOES AS LONG AS THE POST HAS A RELATION TO A GAME RELEASED SOMEWHERE IN THE 2010s! We are opening up the playfield and we welcome Steemians of various genres to come and join the @archdruid's love for gaming!

Casual gaming is now armed with motion sensor! Time to accidentally KICK the friend during DANCE BATTLES!

A spider has a friend who can rant about Destiny for a straight hour XD

Is Life Strange? A spider wouldn’t know. A spider missed out on this game~ But a spider’s life is SURE strange enough :D
