I've decided to go. There's no easy way to say it, so I figured 'blunt' was best.
Being away quite a bit in the last month or so has lead me to realise that I don't enjoy being here as much as I used to. Indeed, the forums don't seem to be quite how they were, although it's difficult to put my finger on exactly what it was that changed. Precious few threads seem to be about games these days, and for some reason I seem to be feeling a bit 'left out' of late.
So I've decided to call it quits. I do plan on still visiting the main site occasionally to read the news and perhaps to comment on any games stories, but after today I plan not to visit the forum any more.
There've been some great people in here over the years, and I do feel like I've made some real friends - especially those of a JRPG persuasion. But.... I dunno. It's just not so much fun any more. I plan to redirect my efforts into my other projects and to try and actually further my career a bit, so I won't be joining any rival forums.
So long, and thanks for all the fish.
