    I am indeed still here, still watching you all. I don't post much but rest assured I pop in to take a look. Kind of like the guy who has his telescope trained on your window.

    Crave seems hell bent on driving this once illustrious website into the ground. They don't give a damn about the community so it's up to you lot to keep things going. Many of the veterans have already abandoned ship and those who I used to think of as new blood have become today's vets. Such a cycle is normal for a long running community, what is not normal are the other incidents. Duke leaving is the latest in a long line of events we're not going to like. It truly sucks that he's not at the helm any more but what is arguably worse is how control was taken away from him in the first place. The new layout, the side-lining of the chat and the change in the overall feel of the site are all things we can't change (unless a particularly generous millionaire decides to buy Crave and gift it to Duke) but we still have control over the boards. It's a little area of the site but unless Crave decides to get rid of it, it's still ours.

    I can tell you one thing Ugh, you bring it on yourself. You are a creepy motherfucker.

    As for Duke, I'm gone since he is. This might be my few last posts.

    noooo, stal! not that you've been posting a lot anyway recently, but you shouldn't go now!

    if we do abandon GR, we should at least find another message board for us all to populate.

    All this abandon ship and "The good ol' days" crap is really bringing me down... The majority seems to be leaning towards letting this place fade out..

    Fucking christ, I'm just a casual poster and even i think that would be heartbreaking

    No offense Stal, but that is cowardly...

    I will not leave these boards until they are shut down by the corporate overlords themselves. I am stubborn like that, and I may be idealist and an idiot for doing that, but fuck it, this is my community in the end. Like everyone else here I helped build it, shape it for what it is. They may take it away from me bit by bit, but I will continue to give it love as much as I possibly can, for as long as I can. Fight until death, basically.

    So I hope you stay, Stal.

    Cowardly? This is an internet form for a webpage that provides content that I can get anywhere else. The reason I came back is because of who was providing the content. It is clear that Crave isn't who I want to get my content from.

    Saying it is cowardly is a drastic misrepresentation the situation.

    I don't think it's cowardly for you to leave, I just don't think you should.

    Because, you know, you're great and shit.

    Just do what everyone else does an disregard the main page. Not like that's so hard to do anymore anyway.

    Lestat was right Stal... immortality isn't for everyone.

    Links - I'm with you man, I've been visiting this site longer than I've been a member on the boards, and I will only stop visiting it when the site bans me or they start charging me.

    Why would people leave? I don't get it.. i mean i do get it, but i don't.

    i won't leave till they shut the place down for good. i like it here. i like the people. i like how we can poke fun at each other and there is no drama cause of it. i like how we all get along and can actully have a half way normal discussion compared to all the other forums out there.

    stal, if you leave, thats just admitting defeat.

    Dudes, it isn't defeat. It is choosing not to give hits to a company you don't agree with.

    It is kind of how this whole thing works.

    How much shit do you do on a daily basis that aids those you hate? A lot, I don't believe in the way 90% of the food I eat is produced .. but nothing I can really do about it!

    I've been using GR for over 10 years and only recently started posting in the last year or so. I enjoy this site for the reviews and editorials, it's been the only gaming review site I've ever visited. I will continue to visit the site and the board until the day comes where the reviews are empty and the editorials are bland.

    Never knew Duke, but if he is who everyone says he is then it truely blows goats that he was treated the way he was.

    whenever you watch tv or listen to the radio, and commercial comes on for something you don't like, that gives them hits.
