Alas, here we are. My 400th GS blog, and, for the most part, my last.
Don't fret, childrens, you can still keep up with my writings on video games and other such things on my website...
Hell, you can even revisit my old site, as I do still plan on updating it every here and there.
Anyway, I'm not just here to advertise my stuff (not this time, anyway). I'm here to bid (mostly) farewell to GameSpot. I know, I've said this at least twice in the past, but back then I had reasons to come back. Now? Not so much.
Most of my favorite users have moved on. Pierst179 (those were the numbers he used, right?) has moved on from GS and now writes his own blog, NintendoBound (check it out). I haven't heard from BrunoFMenedes (please tell me I spelled that right), UglyPinkMoose, and most of my other once-regular commenters for some time. And ShadowOfSonic left GS some time ago. Only Dylan417 and Ezioprez9709 remain. And I hope they'll keep in touch through my aforementioned sites. It would be sad to lose all contact with the people I've shared my thoughts and opinions with for close to six years.
As I've stated before, when I write something really big for my site, such as my hopefully-not-too-far-off list of favorite video games, I will still post a link here. But my days of regularly blogging here on GS ended some time ago, and I don't see a reason to continue writing full blogs here. I will still leave a comment or like a review written by one of my friends here and there, and I will check my GS messages when I can. But as far as being a regular member of the GS community goes, I'm done.
This site simply isn't what it was a few years ago, and neither is its community. I have many fond memories of all the times I gave well-informed opinions here, and all the times I gave less-than well-informed ones. I remember the compliments, the backlash, all of it. Though my presence here was ultimately started just to help get more attention to my other goings-on in the internet, my GS friends helped make my presence here a little something more. I will remember it all fondly.
Thank you so much for the memories. I wish you all Happy Holidays, and may all your futures be bright.
