Nightsurge's Farewell to VGChartz - Permaban Request

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Nightsurge's Farewell to VGChartz - Permaban Request

Good evening everyone,

It has become apparent to me over the last several months that this website is not what it used to be. I really miss the glory days of 2008-2011 on this website. Back then I enjoyed coming here to argue with others, discuss sales data, look at game related news, and share my own opinions/insights. However, all this website has become for me lately is an annoyance and a time waster.

There are rarely any sales related discussions anymore, and the numbers have become less and less accurate over time. Trolling is rampant and everything on here has to be a repeat of some other forum/website. It is no longer a unique and fun place for me. But it is not all VGCHartz to blame, either. I am getting older and have less and less free time. I am choosing to devote it towards other things, such as starting a family with my wife of 6 months now, continuing to develop my own software development business, and of course, spend time enjoying video games rather than watch another generation of fanboy wars take over.

Many of you will remember that I've been on this site for over 5 years now. It's been a great time, and for the most part I have enjoyed contributing here. If any of you wish to keep in touch with me outside of VGChartz, you can follow me on Twitter @nightsurge, or add me on Xbox Live (NightSurgeX2) and PSN (NightSurge). I will warn you, I am close to my 100 friend limit, so you may want to wait until after the Xbox One to add me on Xbox Live. PSN, I probably won't be on for a long time. I don't intend on buying the PS4 until Uncharted 4 comes out, as I can barely justify buying 2 consoles with my limited free time.

My 25th birthday is coming up on November 3rd, this coming Sunday. I would like to request to be permabanned on that date.

It's been real, everyone. Enjoy your Xbox One's, PS4's, Wii U's, and try to remember what used to make this website great... what used to make it different from everywhere else instead of just a clone of those other forums.

Sincerely,

NightSurge

Goodbye.



Good luck with your family! I am rather new so I didn't saw many of your posts but you seemed to be a good guy. You will be missed as any other VG Chartz memeber that leaves the site .

Farewell and good luck.

Good user. You will be missed and enjoy your life ahead of you :)

Oh and happy birthday on the 3rd :D



Will miss you buddy!! I'm surprised you have any free time with a baby and a misses tho! So maybe for the best.

Will add you to Xbox Live when I get Xbox One :)

One of the long timers. You were a good poster, hope you don't get permabanned though, just avoid temptation!

Also, the sales discussions will ramp up with the new generation, it's been stale recently because this gen is mostly over, nothing big is gonna happen now.

Alas you go beyond this site,
A task that doesn't seem light,
For you have many memories,
Of what this place used to be.

So may you enjoy your loved ones
Whether they are a wife, daughters, or sons.
Fare thee well man,
Is your name potentially Dan, or Peter Pan, or... ah nevermind all you want is to be band.
