Goodbye, Destructoid

Goodbye, Destructoid photo



As some of you may or may not have heard, this is officially my last day with Destructoid.

Man ... I can barely type that without getting upset.

I am starting a new job next week at GolinHarris as a writer for Nintendo. It is an absolute dream come true, but also means that I have to leave a place I love. This website.

Destructoid has completely changed my life for the better. Every single person involved with this site has made me a better person. I am going to miss each and every one of you.

My first idea for this post was to make a top ten list about my favorite moments with Destructoid. From The Memory Card to RetroforceGO!; from making E3 predictions to "Cut that shit!" (ask me about this amazing story at PAX). There have been so many great moments, that listing ten would have been easy.

But when I thought about it: if I really sat down and made a list of my favorite moments with Destructoid, it would only include one item:

EVERY GODDAMN SECOND

It's true.

Every single second I was with Destructoid for the last six years has been perfect. I can't think of a single moment that didn't make me the happiest I have ever been.

Every time I got to write an article and share it with the world I was happy.

Every time I got to work with my fellow editors I was happy.

Every time I got to hang out with some of the most incredible community members this world has ever known I was happy.

Heck, just saying I was lucky enough to have been a part of this amazing site for all these years makes me the happiest person of all time. AND SO RIDICULOUSLY PROUD!

I am honored to have been here. I am honored to see my name alongside all the other editors, contributors, and community members that have ever been a part of Destructoid.

I am not kidding when I say this place changed my life. I am a better person because of all of you. So thank you for that. Thank you for everything. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I can genuinely say I love Destructoid more than dolphins.

Seriously.

More than dolphins.

I love you all. Thank you for making these last six years the best of my life.

Aaaaand ... now I am crying.

I love you, Destructoid. I will never forget you.

<3

A special thanks to Niero. I love you more than words. Thanks for giving me a chance and changing my life.

Gaming in the Rust Belt: The story of the Buffalo Game Space

It’s not often I pause an interview because a sizzling plate of loaded fries, topped with thick diced bacon & monterey jack cheese, was just dropped in front of me, but maybe that’s because I don’t condu...more

Get your knives out: A list of the best pointy objects in the business

Knives in games are weird. They're either way too weak and flimsy to be any fun (the weapon of last resort you mess around with for a few moments to delay dying or before you restart from your last, hopefully ammo-rich, save)...more

Samus and Sagat: Prepping for Street Fighter V and Super Metroid II

A lot of you told me that you really liked Samus and Sagat episode one. Thank you so much! Even more of you told me that you almost didn't watch the show at all because you thought it was a cartoon. Sorry about that! To be 1...more
