And that concludes the final Community Blog Roundup for 2021. Our deepest and warmest thanks to every last one of you who contributed writing in the cblogs over the past year. Thanks to Lord Spencer for their tireless work in providing this recap each and every week, and I’ll also give myself a pat on the back for the wonky act of transitioning each entry to the front page — which has been rendered a clumsy task since the site switchover.

We at Destructoid hope to see more hot takes, ramblings, musings, opinions,  thoughts, and creative endeavors from our community into 2022. Head on over to the blog section and join the party. Maybe you can find yourself featured — or even front-paged — in the coming year! Already looking forward to reading about the platters that matter.
