This is a bittersweet post to write, so I will try and keep it brief.
When I first joined GameSpot back in May 2011, there were many things I had yet to experience. I didn't have a beard, I'd never been to E3, and I'd never seen Seb Ford with his shirt off.
Needless to say, a lot has changed.
My time at GameSpot has brought a lot of change into my life. After three years of working alongside some truly excellent (and in many cases inspiring) people, I am a far better journalist, a more confident individual, and definitely more of a handful than I was at the start.
All good things, however, must come to an end. It's time for me to stretch myself again, so I am leaving my full time position at GameSpot in order to pursue a freelance career.
Happily I will still be producing Feedbackula for GameSpot, but (with luck) you should also see me popping up in other places around the internet.
If you want to follow my progress on this frankly terrifying new journey, my twitter is @johnneh, and you can find me on tumblr at johnnyohnny.tumblr.com
As for you guys, thanks for giving me the chance to do some really exciting things, some really dumb things, and all the things in between.
Don't go a bed.
EDIT: I realised I didn't give a time frame for my semi-departure. I will be in the office full time until the 12th of February, so there's time for a bit more silliness yet.
