This, dear readers, is the last issue of 40 bit Gaming.
That’s it. That’s the tweet.
I want to thank everyone who’s been with me over the past almost-year of putting this newsletter out each week. It’s been two tons of fun, and I appreciate the space you made for me in your inbox and in your life.
I don’t want to make this too drawn out, or too mopey (too late!), but when I started 40 Bit, I had a grand vision for creating a vibrant community and resource for older gamers that just don’t have a lot of time to play videogames.
But I couldn’t make that happen, and given work and life and everything, I won’t for awhile. As a result, this newsletter is just not providing enough value. I’m not fulfilling my end of the bargain. You can get dated pop culture references anywhere. You don’t need a newsletter for that.
40 Bit may come back at some point, or I’ve been noodling with the concept of 40 Bit World – a guide to modern life for people over 40 – it’d be like AARP, but for a younger generation… that is also old.
Thank you for the past year. And thank you for being a friend.
Stay cool. Have a great summer. Class of ’90 rulez.
