Since no one is reading on Thanksgiving anyway, let’s serve up one of those song posts that no one cares about. As is often the case, this is a break-up song. We have relationships with these games, their communities, and our guilds, sometimes far more emotionally involved and dramatic than our romantic entanglements.
This one goes out to all of you in on-again, off-again relationships with your game of choice. You just keep going back to him, don’t you, no matter how abusive the relationship may be? At some point, you have to accept that the dream has died and move on, no matter how much time you have invested. That investment is never going to pay off. Don’t worry; you’ll find a new infatuation to keep you company, and here is Michelle Branch to sympathize while you’re on the rebound.
I’ve been searching deep down in my soul
Words that I’m hearing are starting to get old
It feels like I’m starting all over again
The last three years were just pretend
And I said
Goodbye to you
Goodbye to everything that I knew
You were the one I loved
The one thing that I tried to hold onto
Buffy fans may recognize this from the end of “Tabula Rasa,” an entirely appropriate use of the song.
“Zubon, don’t be so hard on yourself about the song posts. No one cares about the other posts, either.”
