Nick Monroe is Leaving Gameranx

carpediem

As of midnight on October 29th I part ways with Gameranx.  My departure with the website is on mutual terms, with no hard feelings. The timing felt right for everyone involved. I also have to deal with a surgery to repair a tendon in my arm as a result of a roofing accident back at the end of September.

I’m proud and honored to call Ian Cheong a friend. He’s a good boss, and he treated me more than fairly. The past six/seven months of my time here have been so rich with experiences and personal growth, I consider it time well spent. I feel more confident in my capabilities as a writer thanks to the opportunities given to me.  My co-workers, Dennis and Kris, saw me as an equal. I couldn’t have asked for better.

Jake Baldino and the YouTube crew do magnificent work, and you can bet on that continuing throughout the rest of this year and into the next.

Normally I ended articles linking to a developer’s website, Twitter, and Facebook. But since this is mostly about me, here’s my Twitter and Instagram if you want to follow along with my life. Doing what I’ve done in the gaming community and beyond has been an honor and privilege. You’ll certainly be hearing from me again in the near future.

I never got the chance to use this quote from Tennyson in a piece, and I always wanted to (Mass Effect taught it to me).

“Death closes all: but something ere the end, Some work of noble note, may yet be done, Not unbecoming men that strove with Gods.”

Goodbye Gameranx. Thank you so much for the memories and everything else.

I was always bad at ending conversations with people, and my resignation letter is no different. I’m going to hit the publish button now.
