Snippet:
 
“*Viva la revolucion*”, translated as “*Long live the Revolution*”, a phrase that might have been commonly used during the early 1900s to portray the aftermath of the 1910 Mexican Revolution--an event that transformed Mexico after a series of uprisings against a longtime dictator and gave the Mexican people a sense of identity and purpose.
 
Now, the same phrase is used everywhere, from social reforms, educational reforms, cultural reforms, and many more.
 
And with the year of 2014 about to part, the phrase, “*Long live the Revolution*”, can now be embedded to the gaming culture for the year had lots of groundbreaking moves and innovations across different levels: from business of games to game development and game consumerism--a move which took video gaming from a person’s basement, to the hands of everyday people.
