As you probably figured out, New Gamer Nation is currently on its last legs and we have come to the conclusion that it is now time to close our doors for good. It takes a lot of time to create content that people really want to read and time is something we just don’t have a lot of nowadays. This was certainly not an easy decision to come to, but it is one that has to be made.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank and acknowledge some people that have helped make NGN what it is today. First, I would like to thank all the people that have come and gone on the site here. I have reached out to the most important people, just let this serve as another thank you for all your hard work and sticking it out with us over this long ride.
Next, I would like to thank all the PR and publicity people that we have worked with over the years with special shoutouts to Tinsley Media, Sony PlayStation, Plantronics, Team 47 and Turtle Beach. These teams, as well as a few others, have embraced us since the beginning and I can’t thank them enough for their confidence in us. It was a pleasure working with all of you and I wish you all luck in the future. You really did help make a dream come true.
Finally, I would like to thank you, the readers. Without your support, your readership, taking the time to share, like and subscribe to our content, none of this would have ever been possible. It was an unbelievable pleasure to make meaningful content and deliver it to you on nearly a daily basis. We had the time of our lives serving you and we will miss your love, hate, feedback, and friendship dearly.
New Gamer Nation started over seven years ago with two friends showing up at PAX and being utterly mindblown at the community and energy in the video game space. We immediately dreamed of being part of this community, whatever it took. I distinctly remember speaking to a PR rep at EA and asked what his advice would be to start a website about games. That guy blatantly said not to bother. Unless we had some radical idea, we’d never see any success. While it was true that NGN was not a commercial success, it was still a personal success and brought a great deal of joy to a select few people. To me, that makes all the effort worth the ride.
We genuinely hope that NGN helped you in some way whether it was seeing what was coming up on the PSN, getting that fringe E3 news or just sitting back and listening to us talk about games. While NGN will soon cease to exist, we just want you to know that we appreciate your patronage and we wish you well in gaming. It was an honor and a pleasure to serve you as long as we have. Thank you again and goodbye.
Feel free to leave comments, we will read them up until the site goes down permanently in about a month or two.
