First, here’s the asinine ad I had to put up with in order to make this comment.
well crap man.
You’ve been a seriously impressive voice on this website for a very long time, and I’ll miss all the news and reviews and fun shit you write here.
I know you’ll still be writing elsewhere, but it won’t have the same irreverence and sheer sass.
Cheers, and thanks for the great content!
First and foremost, congrats and best of luck on the next exciting chapter in your adventure! I will continue to read your work where ever you go as I’ve always found it delightful. But don’t worry, I will continue to read Totilo’s work too. Thank you Jason for all of your hard work and exceptional journalism while at… Read more
Breaking my heart, Jason.
Thanks so much for your amazing work for this outlet, Jason. You’re a major reason of why I tell people who want to understand games in their full social, cultural, economic, and ideological breadth, they should read Kotaku (I even assign your features about the video game industry to my digital media course students).… Read more
Good for you and best of luck, Jason. I started Suikoden II because of you, and you can see that has carried over into my display name on here. Deadspin was my favorite site on the internet, and what Spanfeller did was nothing more than hate. It wasn’t a business decision, they called him out on that, just absolute… Read more
This must be the first time I interact in a public comment section since I was 19 (I am 30 now!), but I just wanted to say I greatly appreciate your work and your contribution at Kotaku will be sorely missed by this reader. I handed out your book to all of my videogame-loving friends and now we’re all waiting for the… Read more
It feels weird to think about, since it was your articles about rpgs back in the 2014-ish era that brought me to the site in the first place. Never listened to Splitscreen, but I’ll definitely check out the new podcast.
Hmmmm, Government paid me bank today.
how could today go wrong?
<logs on Kotaku and sees that Jason is leaving>
When you said last week that you had a big announcement I pretty much guessed that this was it, so I’ve already made my piece with it. Looking forward to following you to wherever you go next, and reading your next book!
Can’t say I’m surprised, or that I blame you. Your loss will be felt, but that’s just proof of how good you are at your job. Wishing you all the best, and will be eyeing your Twitter account for your next big story. :)
Suikoden II has been my favorite game since the day it came out and I will never be able to to play it without thinking about you. Please let us know where you land once you do!
Jason, you have done a tremendous job in your time. I have been following your work for much of your 8 years and I can say it has been a real pleasure. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with Kotaku and the readership and I look forward to searching out and supporting what comes next for you. Also, we will… Read more
