This whole AtariAge selling out thing stinks to high heaven. And I don't want to be a part of it one bit. Not one reply to the question "What if the iteration of Atari folds or goes bankrupt?" I really hate drama. I go out of my way to create or be a part of drama. So I have decided to excuse myself out of the AtariAge forums. I guess Al is a business man, and sure, it gets him a lot of money, but if I was in the same situation, I would have turned any offer from Atari down, even if they offered me millions of dollars. You just need to think about other people before yourself first. That's a lesson a lot of people, I guess including Al, need to learn: DON'T BE SELFISH. Or greedy. Greed is never good.
So I guess I'll remain here unless Gloves decides to sell out as well. I think I don't see that happening, seeing as how there's no company called "Video Games", but you can never be too sure about anything these days, I guess. If you don't know about my posting history, I'll be short: I posted a lot over there. I almost reached 20,000 posts in the 17 years I'd been there. It was my main internet home, and I'm sad to see it go. But I don't want to be a part of any forum that is part of a company. I guess it just says you are a fanboy. I don't want to be seen as a fanboy for a company that may fold at any minute.
I guess forums in general are a dying breed, and I guess we all need to go to Discord now, which is sad. Discord killed forums, just like Amazon killed Wal-Mart, malls, and bookstores, and Nextlix and Hulu killed cable TV. The world goes on. Why can't things ever stay the same forever? All changes that companies think are good turn out to be bad. Or I guess I suppose, as I'm about to turn 41, I'm just plain too old.
