It felt only right to highlight all three of these.
Good morning folks at PD!
Good news, and bad: So, the good news is that the amount of teasing and general jackassery that you each are subjected to is going to decrease substantially. I am walking away from gaming, and Polygon Daily is included in that package. Time is a limited resource, and I am spending it playing games, thinking about games, and generally not accomplishing much instead of taking care of my family. It is just time to grow up and take care of what is important. I still like games, but I can’t stay partially involved in the community; that’s just not how I operate.
It’s not you, it’s me: I have really enjoyed all of the people in PD, and will miss you. I am not fed up with the community, or feel like I don’t belong. I just need a clean break, and talking about gaming would just draw me back in.
The test: I am taking a full week break from gaming. My wife insisted (rightly so) that I test out dropping the habit before I sell all my stuff. My intention is to do a goodbye post one week from now, after spending a week without any video games. The gold standard is that I have to not be an unbearable areshole for a week as well. If you see me in here in less than a week, or I start commenting again next week, know that I have utterly failed. Feel free to bring the pain at that point.
The list: I am going to sell everything gaming related that will lure me back in. I will be selling my 46" TV (moving the 32" back upstairs for the kids), the sound system (nothing special), the PS4, one of two PS3s, my PS Vita, My X360, and my Wii. All games and accessories will be jumping ship. I will be holding onto the one PS3 as a Netflix and Blu-ray player for the kids and wife. I will wipe it, and probably start a new account so I cannot re-download any games.
I’m not looking for pity, or to be convinced either way. I thought it would be respectful to give you all, who I consider friends, a heads up. For anyone thinking that there will be a Sabre-shaped hole in PD that needs to be filled, don’t. You will get on just fine without replacing one insufferable jerk with another. That hole? Fill it in and plant a tree over it. Or salt the earth. Whatever. See you in a week.Sabre Swinger | 9 Recommends
