That's too bad, you are a good member of the site. I wish you well for the future then. Good bye *Sound Of Rain *waves*

Thank you for the props :-)

You're one of VGC'z finest as well. Wish you all the best too. *Holds back tears and slowly walks away*

This is so emotional... :(
So many tears falling right now, its nearly like the sound of rain... :(
HA! That was a good one, wasn't it?
No? Ok... I'll just leave then....
*awkward*

RGE, I was about to make that joke. :(

on 18 August 2014

Thats the reason why we are friends! :)
I think we might be the same person, but i am not sure yet...

----------------
EDIT: Eek! Sorry about the wall of text, Rain. It's been a long week and... I guess it finally came out in written form. Anyway, I apologize for the length of this getting so out of hand.
----------------

Damn. It never rains but it... pours.

How ironic.

And no, I'm not making a joke. It's just that when shit happens to me, it always seems to happen all at once.

I just had a major hard drive crash. Over ten years worth of my life - all of my friends, chat logs, pictures, personal memories... all my creative projects... my artwork, my music, my videos, my editing, my writing... everything - gone.

I'm sure it seems silly but I'm extremely sentimental and a lot of what I lost is completely irreplaceable. It hit me so hard that I've literally been physically ill for a week.

Then, when I finally get myself together enough to at least try to distract myself - to focus on something else and get my mind off things a little - I log in here to discover that you're leaving.

Ouch! :-|

Rain, I haven't known you very long, but even in the time that you've been away on your recent vacation, I've already missed you. I really do hope that you'll think about returning at some point, even if it's only for the occasional elimination game or random chat.

I actually thought your generic "Gaming Chat" thread worked out really well. A little bit of "Talk about whatever you want!"

I mean, VGChartz will still be here. There's no reason you can't still pop in occasionally and chat about old favourites or even more recent stuff that you've played, so that you don't ruin any upcoming games for yourself.

You don't have to read the gaming news or threads about anything you haven't played yet. If you want to avoid spoilers and put some of the surprise back into gaming, you could always bookmark your specific threads of interest and only talk about what you want to talk about.

Believe me, I understand exactly where you're coming from. Over the years, gaming has progressively lost its "magic" for me too. In fact, I was just thinking about this recently, comparing the way things used to be to the way they are now.

When I was a kid, you learned all the cool details about a game when you played it. Period. Sure, there were magazines and stuff that had more info if you really wanted to pursue it. But, for the most part, games were unspoiled when you got to them.

These days, we know about everything from graphics to gameplay to modes to mechanics to soundtrack and level design and characters... plot... weapons... armour... stats... upgrades... There hardly seem to be any aspects of modern video games that aren't a matter of public record long before the games themselves are even released.

Now, that's not to say that I don't like a little transparency in the process. I do. That's why I read sites like this.

But, at the same time, I sympathize with your feeling that, as gamers, being *too* involved in the process can also spoil the eventual experience for us.

Sigh! I'm not entirely sure where I'm going with this but, for what it's worth, I understand how you feel.

I guess I'm just saying that it's possible to avoid learning too much about new games without leaving the forum entirely.

And yeah, I know. I'm being kind of selfish here. I should just be wishing you the best (though, to be clear, I *do* wish you the best, regardless of what you ultimately do) and moving on with my life. But, instead, I'm whining about how your leaving affects me... me... me!

The truth is, had this happened at any other time, I probably would have just sighed heavily and grudgingly accepted it. But the timing of this news couldn't have been worse, hence my unintentionally ironic "Never rains but it pours" comment.

Perhaps...

I don't know...

After the week I've just had, perhaps I simply needed to express this and get some of it out of my system.

In any case, please don't interpret anything I've said here as anger towards you. It most certainly is not. One way or the other, it has to be your decision what you do. Nobody can make it for you, and it's certainly not my place to tell you what to do.

For the moment, though, I have to live in the hope that we'll see you again. For my own sake. I realize it may never happen but, right now, I need to believe that it will.

That patter you hear is not the sound of rain, my friend; it's the falling of tears.

I know I'm not the only one who will miss you, and I truly wish you all the best in whatever you end up doing.

For now, I will just say thank you for the fun times you provided us with on the forum, both in your chats and in your games. I realize it's a lot of work to count all those votes, and it didn't go unnoticed.

I hope we can play again some time in the future. Perhaps we can even try out some of those ideas you said you had but we never got to.

Until that time, I wait with bated breath, eagerly anticipating the return of the VGChartz forum gamesmaster.

See you then, Rain. :-)
