[General Article] General: Gratitude Style

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe CitadelPosts: 20,804MMORPG.COM Staff Epic

Today is Thanksgiving Day in the United States and our staff wanted to take a few minutes of your day to share some of the things for which we are most grateful in both our gaming and personal lives. Please check it out and then tell us what you are thankful for in the comments.

I am ever amazed with the amount of greatness there is in my life.  I have a great job, great friends, a great wife, and in general I have very little to ever be upset about. If I find myself grumpy, it's usually something so trivial (like my iPhone being broken by a passerby's carelessness).  I watch people all over our country and others struggle with their day to day lives, and then I realize the worst I have to complain about is occasionally missed deadlines and a hectically full inbox.  That's humbling, no matter how you look at it.  People say it all the time as a cliche, but I really can't complain.

    Nice read Bill.  You got a job you love, instead of some of us who have jobs just to pay the bill's, It is my dream to get a job that I love one day. 

    On that note I would like to say Happy Thanksgiving to all you folks out there.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

    I'm most thankful for my friends and family. I'm thankful that I have a job while many people right now do not. I have a wonderful girlfriend, and a few wonderful pets. I have many wonderful friends who I have met through online gaming over the years and I am thankful for all of them too. I'm also thankful for the wonderful community has built and hope its here for as long as I am.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Happy Thanksgiving to the staff of as well as the many members that come to this website. I really appreciate all the hard work that everyone puts into to give us a quality source of new gaming information every day. 

    I live on Long Island and this past year I have been humbled by recent events to have gratitude for the many basic things we take for granted: hot running water, food, clothing and a warm bed to sleep in at night. 

    It doesn't get any better than this!


    Have a great day!

    If you want to show gratitude, give us minutes out of your day instead of using ours.

    EA CEO John Riccitiello's on future microtransactions: "When you are six hours into playing Battlefield and you run out of ammo in your clip, and we ask you for a dollar to reload, you're really not very price sensitive at that point in time...We're not gouging, but we're charging."

    I'm jealous of you guys. You have a job that you actually love. That's what I'm trying to do, but in my business it's extremely hard to get a foot in the door (and no I have nothing to do with gaming). I wish you all the best and a happy thanksgiving.

    Will we end up in an infinite loop if I say I am thankful for thanksgiving?

    I hope everyone is enjoying their Thanksgiving with close friends and family. This is probably my favorite American holiday as the only thing it asks of us is to get together and enjoy each other's company. All the while stuffing our faces without regard for the stupid amounts of food we've ingested. No other holiday compares to that!

    The only negative thing I can think to say about Thanksgiving is how it is immediately followed by my most hated day of the year, Black Friday...

    Happy Thanksgiving All!!!

    I know I complain alot and more often then not speak before thinking, but thank you MMORPG for your interesting articles and perspectives. This is a nice break during the day to come on and read up on upcoming and old titles as well as express my input or criticisms and see how my views match up with or opposite of the community.
