My last blog update on GameSpot.com was as follows..
"So I think by now everyone knows about a certain other gaming website. Well it just launched, and I think Ill be spending a little more time there. So, if you too are going to that site, you can find me under the same name...fleasquire. See ya there guys! "
I became an active member of the GameSpot community way back in 2005 around E3. Back then Unions, Halo 2, and the "Next Gen Consoles," were the main topic of interest on the site. What kept me coming back after those three topics faded, was the fantastic crew and personalities that ran the site. Among them were Greg Kasavin, Rich Gallup, Bob Colayco, Carrie Gouskos, Brian Ekberg, Aaron Thomas, and the founding members of GiantBomb. After the drama that happened in back in 2007, I was among the loyal fan base that felt somewhat betrayed. I did not want plan on ditching the site completely, but as that crew that the fans had come to know so well all began to resign, I began to lose interest. As soon as GiantBomb launched, my participation on GS pretty much stopped. I still went to the site from time to time for news/reviews, but as GiantBomb grew, I needed GS less and less.
While my initial shock of this "merger" was probably the same as anyone else's, I wish nothing but the best for the crew of GiantBomb and GameSpot that I have been following so closely for almost 7 years.
Here's to many more guys, where ever you end up.
