I'd love one, if possible!

@patrickklepek: Not to get overly personal, but I couldn't relate more to that final feeling you described before saying goodbye, Patrick.
I lost my father to illness at the age of 11, and while I held strong throughout the weeks of hospital visits, it was that last time I saw his body that hit the hardest. Knowing you have to eventually move yourself away from that place and settle with never seeing someone so influential again is what finally made the reality of the situation feel, well, real.
It's been nine years, and just writing about it now still stings a bit. Articles like this, though, are truly special to me. No, I didn't have an abusive upbringing, but hearing of others coming to grips with similar tragedies and maybe even accepting what happened is refreshing. It's really amazing what video games can now achieve.
Thanks for the fantastic piece of journalism, Patrick.
@Brendan: That's a really good comparison, and what I had in mind when I posted this. I think it's a similar situation - in both cases, your manhood almost comes into question if you don't drink the hardest and darkest.
@LimpBishop: I actually do grind my own beans, surprisingly. Really dislike instant coffee, to be honest. I think I enjoy a quality roast, but just not the bitterness that comes with it.
