Good bye old friend

Well, I have not heard a peep from the old peeps on here in a long time. So this will be my last message on Gamespot.

We had some good times. I joined in 2003 because I heard about GS's online game tourneys. That was the main reason I came here. I quickly made some good friends on here that I have come to know personally and have visited on occasion! The community here was awesome. We did all kinds of crazy s*** just to get the trophies! Oh man, the trophy collecting was so much fun!

We also had the Xbox Live Gamers Union. We did tournaments and other games to try and keep the community together. It was a lot of fun! I see unions don't exist on here anymore, bummer. :(

I remember the whole Giant Bomb thing going down too. That was big!

There was also a very personal connection on here too. This was where I talked about proposing to my wife. I shared my life with her on here with my friends and the community. Michelle would be so stoked to see a story on here about her. To all that may visit this page one day looking for me and/or wondering what happened, she passed away on 24 March this year. She was 31 years young. CF took her life. The disease I talk about so much in my blog history finally overcame her and she died of septic shock. I miss her every day. I shared my personal struggles on here and the community responded so nicely. It's a shame that the new setup erased all the old comments to my blogs. I liked going through them. Reading about other peoples struggles and how they overcame them. It was inspiring.

You all got to witness the birth of the Seattle Retro Gaming Expo! This year marks our fourth year and we are making it a big one!

But, like everything in life, it has to come to an end. This website just isn't the same anymore. I remember when we could just talk to the guys at the site, and they would talk to us during their web-shows. It was more friendly than it feels now. Since I made a post 6 months ago and did not get one comment tells me that most of my friends moved on as well.

I want to thank Gamespot for helping me through some tough struggles with providing a website where I could communicate with people that have the same passion for video games as I do. You may have inadvertently saved me from suicide a couple of times.

I also want to thank all the people who came together with us to game and enjoy gaming, even if it were for just one match, it was fun. We had great times together and I hope that we all get to game together again one day, in this life or the next.

Goodbye friends.

I never knew ya, but reading that blog sorta made did. With me being relatively new to the forums, I don't know how much this is going to mean. But good luck out in the world and take care.

The old days were nice. However I have no plans to leave this bloated festering corpse of a site, at least not yet. Sorry you feel that way good luck with your life and endeavors.

Don't know the OP either, but it's the natural cycle of things when members leave a forum and things change. Has happened to me in the past with different online boards.

While I can't speak for this "forum of past", I'm enjoying my time here. Most of the people are intelligent and interesting enough to keep me coming back (Yes, even "thegerg" included). Nothing wrong with forming new relationships and sticking around. just sayin.

True. I didn't read OP's post in its entirety if not I wouldn't had been so harsh. My apologies OP. Von voyage.

Good to know. You're a bit of an ass sometimes (we all are, it's fun!) but I thought this one was a bit out of character although I kind of assumed that was the case, since I also thought "Not another one...if you want to go just go" before I actually read the thread =)

@Master_Live You are an asshole. This guy had the guts to admit that he had suicidal thoughts and this website helped him. I don't know him personally but this man deserves a fitting send off, not your hate. You live up to your profile picture

OP was so nostalgic and melancholic damn. Goodbye tiggerboy, even though I never got to know you. But you still speak of the truth and of touching stuff.

It was a nice read. I'm sorry you came back to your old meeting place only to find this barren wasteland. Farewell, tiggerboy.

I'll eventually leave as well, but moreover around the upcoming year.

It's unfortunate to see a GameSpot veteran go, but I hope all goes well for you.
