I know I haven't been here long at all, but I can see who the regulars and the serious folk at the moment are I think, as much as lurking for a week or so can tell .... but my question is ....
Is everyone feeling deflated after the R* 'news'? I can see people are carrying on, and I want to believe there is currently a jetpack, but I imagine some of you guys who have been here since day one are feeling a bit cheated, or in denial? I have spent the last couple of days with very little sleep with the odd few pockets of work, glued to this thread. I have experienced little lows, little highs, the feel of a lead, the loss of a lead. I can only begin to feel what I imagine you old timers must have been through a thousand times. The same theory occurring every 20 pages, sorry for when I brought old ones back, people not following up theories, dead ends, troll sites, fake pics. Its been emotional and I have only been actively participating a few days!
As I typed that, I realised ... all this from a video game, a game that has given me over 100 hours of play already and still there is more, more layers to find, more questions to answer. Thats pretty f*cking amazing, I think. The last time a game really got me this deep was DayZ, now that was immersion when I first discovered it, nothing like it, the best game I had ever played, till this.
So, what I think I am trying to say through my sleep deprived, bong filled haze is that, jetpack or no jetpack, its been a fun ride, its going to keep being a fun ride for me too, because i'm going to stick about till this god damn thing is solved!
Sorry for my ramblings, its been a very very long day
