Dopp ROLL TIDE

Breath of the Wild is an amazing game.
I've started playing D&D a bit. Went through one campaign with Goober and now I'm prepping for two at once. Getting the lube ready...
I'm chomping at the bit to play more Horizon Zero Dawn. It's hands down the most beautiful console game I've ever touched, but I can't stop with the Zelda just yet.
K, that was a fun break from studying for certs. :)

I cannot tell you how weird it is not seeing a yellow star next to my name...
I've actually just switched my membership over to a different site. Not long after I canceled my subscription here, I started one up an Penny Arcade and joined Club PA. One thing I found interesting is how active their forums are and how they haven't changed in over a decade.
Change =/= functionality.

Why is it that Dopp gets so worked up about the site? Is he sensitive? Well, yes and no. I'm not a generally sensitive person, but when it comes to certain things, I can be set off pretty easily. One of these things is this site.
The reason I have strong feelings about this site is because out of all the World Wide Web, there's not a single place out there that will ever come close to being as good as the RT site once was. It was fun to come here. It had interesting people (a lot of whom became my friends), and it was a safe haven to sort of go all out. You could call someone a cunt to their faces in the forums and then talk to someone else how much you love that person. That was the climate. It was nice. It was home. Unfortunately, "was" and "had" exists a lot in this paragraph because these things were taking from me and everyone else who experienced the "good ol days."
As much as some of you newcomers may really love this place, I cannot even begin to explain how much this iteration is missing. This site is a dumpster fire compared to even 3 or 4 years ago. A lot of it is because the functionality has gone down the drain, but mostly because too many people who have been around as long as I have (and longer) have left as well. And I'm sorry, but you can't fill that hole. It can't happen.
Because of this, and because of the seemingly lack of interest coming from the higher ups (hell Burnie blocked me on Twitter for saying that the site is bad instead of having a conversation with us about how they're going to fix it), I have finally cancelled my subscription.
That's a long ass time...
I'm sure RT will survive without my sponsorship and I wish them the best.
To my friends who are in the middle of all of this, I love you and hopefully I'll talk to you soon.

Man... 12 years.
That's a long ass time. That's before being a homeowner, a father, and a husband. While two of those three things take the top two spots in my list of "Best things I ever did," joining this site is up there.
Hopefully there will be another 12 in me and in this site. <3
Only if you give it to me in person. <3

I actually couldn't think of anything when I first saw this in my comments. I, sadly, had to take it to Google to jog my memory.
Only two really stands out to me. The first is the Super Mario 64 sequel that apparently for turned into Super Mario Sunshine or something.
The only other one that comes to mind is Silent Hills. Man, what a waste.
