Hello anyone who still may read my blog even though I haven't posted in over a year.
The reason I'm writing this post is because of the recent announcement by GameSpot that in the near future all Unions and forums on the site will be phased out to make way for the "new" GameSpot. This post is not here to angrily demand GameSpot to let things be or tell them "if ain't broke, don't fix it", but instead to reflect on a great site.
I used to be a very active member of this community and several different unions. The high point of which was the summer of '09. One union in particular stands out in my mind: The Star Wars and Lord of the Rings United Union. There I met several other individuals who, like myself, loved both sagas. This was really the first time in my life where I could just converse about the things I love to people who also shared a genuine interest. Though that union has long since died out, I still carry the memory of the great times I had posting back and forth on the forums about "who would win in a fight" and "what if?"s.
Also, all of our ranks and achievements will be wiped out from what I've heard, things that we few proud members of GS would spend hours upon hours on the site to collect.
To be honest, it's been a long time since I've been a regular user here, nor will I ever be again, but this news still sadens me as I feel a part of my past is being destroyed and I know I am not the only one who feels that way.
To all my old friends who may be reading this, thank you for the great memories, and if you'd like to reconnect or chat some more, you can find me over at my YouTube channel HERE
For possibly the last time, Good Gaming!
