Icon is an event that had been running for many years now – this year is its 25th year, in fact.

Hello gamers, it’s me, that failed gaming person who hasn’t played your favourite game before. Yes, in the past couple of weeks I have announced the shame of my existence in that I have never played Bioshock, nor Red Dead Redemption (well not more than a couple of hours anyway). To my surprise in both those posts I found out I wasn’t alone and that there were other miscreants lik...
