See you around Fathoms - Ben Dutka
First of all, I just want to say that I just came back from a 1 week out of town vacation, and I celebrated my birthday last May 1 so that's why I've been missing in action here in PSXextreme. But I red the email of Ben during my vacation, saying that he's leaving PSXextreme and my first reaction was, "Is it really true? I can't believe it, and I refuse to believe it!" I know Ben recruited us to be volunteer writers here in PSXextreme because he's pursuing a different career but I never expected that he'll leave us this early and that he'll fully leave PSXextreme. But despite that, I respected his decision in leaving the site. I believe in the saying that "There is nothing permanent except change", and that also applies to our careers that we are taking as a professional. I'm also waiting for an opportunity right now on my career that I can't passed up once the company that I've applied for will give the job offer to me. I'm happy for Ben that he is moving on, but at the same time I feel saddened because I'll surely miss his news articles and game reviews here in PSXextreme.
I've been a member of PSXextreme since around 2007, and it has been my favorite site if I want to read Sony PlayStation news, articles, and reviews. In fact, I based my PSN ID on this site, which is psxtremegamer25. I also browse other gaming sites like videogamer, IGN, gamepro (which I think it does not exist anymore), gamespot, etc, but most of the time I always browse PSXextreme. I just find the articles and pieces here on PSXextreme the most informative and fun to read, and that's probably because Ben is the one writing them. No offense meant to the previous writers or authors of PSXextreme, like Arnold (which I believe is one of the owners of this site), I just think that most of the time, Ben's news articles, reviews, and opinions are the most informative and has the best writing of them all. I know most of you will agree with me on this.
Anyways, I don't want to make this writing any longer. I just want to thank you Mr. Ben Dutka for all the years that you spent in writing good news articles and game reviews here in PSXextreme. Thank you also for choosing me as one of the volunteers for this site. I'll try my best to write pieces here on this site for all the people who browses PSXextreme. I'll look forward to your Week in Reviews during weekends. And one last thing, I know your passion for games has waned considerably in recent years, but I hope you'll still continue to play games. Games WILL ALWAYS be a part of your life even if your new career doesn't involve video games. I know that for a fact, because like myself, I love video games and I'm proud to be a gamer. Well, I have no more words to say. I don't want to say goodbye, I just want to say "See you around, Ben".
Now time to go back in writing those articles again. ^_^
