I guess this is it. I think it is time for me to leave GameSpot, things have deteriorated here for so long now and I think I've had enough. This won't be a short break where I come back after a few weeks I don't think, I reckon I'll be gone for good. I've been at this website on this account for well over seven years now and rather than progression, I think this site has been going backwards if anything. GameSpot needs a total overhaul and I don't think it is going to happen. I find IGN has much more up to date news and is in general a much better source of information.
GameSpot's technical issues and lack of progession isn't the only reason I have decided to leave. I think I've grown out of video games to be honest, they just don't have the appeal they once had to, I never thought I would say this, but I find them pretty boring to be honest. I used to be absolutely addicted to them but now I have the push myself to finish one, so I think it's time to let them go and with that GameSpot has to go to.
Inevitably I'll be leaving my unions behind.
The Council of Unions, not really my union anymore but I was with it for very long time and it is sad to see it dead, but I guess that reflects the nature of most unions these days.
The Artist's Canvas was where I managed to really develop my graphic designing skills and help others also. I think at a time we were one of the most active designing unions on GameSpot as the others declined but even we have to die out eventually since I could split my time enough anymore. It was great working with guys like daxter, lotus, jack force, Eucalypta.
The Ultimate Gaming Union has been a place I've visited day in day out for over five years postings tens of thousands of times there and It'll be a big change without that to do everyday, maybe I'll turn to reading instead, who knows. I think the most interesting part of it all is chatting to random people around the world, and having that feeling of knowing someone but then at the same time, not know them at all. It is rather strange to be honest. The two most oustanding characters have to be Artekus and DPumbliQ, Arty a sensible kinda guy, with a witty humour, and DPQ a truly random and humourous Icelandic fella :D
In_Vino_Verita, -J-A-, Ottosmann, SuperGogeta24, Zabaes, Bob_toeback, woonsa, The_Last_Ride, woozie, loopy, evilgamer, urbangamez, oli_kester, navigata, slidypitt, mewantcookie, yoporahh | and everybody else who was a part of the Ultimate Gaming Union thank you all!
I guess that leaves once last person to talk about, me ofcourse. The mysterious Uas-2001, I have had many people ask me on GameSpot to reveal something about my own personal identity. Hhmhm, although now it comes to me leaving I'm not sure the people who were interested are still around...but hey what is there to say. I'm seventeen years old, I suppose you might find that interesting. :D
Well it has been nice knowing you all, I'm not sure what I'll do about the leadership of my unions, I guess I'll just leave them as they are. Goodbye GameSpot!
