No, i won’t be able to do daily quotes. But this one bears repeating:
In fact I am officially done with rant blogs in any fashion. – Belghast, Tales of the Aggronaut
If i have gained something from these last few days (or is it a week already?) since reading about Massively’s possible shutdown, i think it is a sense of positivity and community. Most people were so supportive, it was great to see. And it made me realize: maybe we’ll be better of without all the negativity that surrounds us as a community and the genre as a whole? I mean, it doesn’t matter if you prefer Darkfall over World of Warcraft or vice versa, we share the same love for the same genre. Or at least, we should. So this sentiment of Belghast is something that speaks my mind right now.
Sometimes i’d love to join the big guys- it’s so great to read how they’re playing games together and it just sounds like so much fun. It must be great to share gameplay experiences with likeminded people who not only share the love for the games they play, but also voicing their opinions and/or discussing about our hobby.
As for the quote and the blogger it’s related to: yes, i kicked him out of my Feedly, too. It wasn’t just his opinion, but also how he stated it and that most of what he wrote was just plain wrong (as far as i can tell- have to believe the other side of the argument, but i do).
Let’s just stay positive; i have the feeling the bad news from last week isn’t the only bad thing we’ll experience this year. I’d love to see us leaving 2015 stronger than now. Smaller, more tight-knit. More positive.
