Dear Video Games,
I love you dearly, but sadly it has come time for us to part ways. Don't take this the wrong way. You did nothing wrong. It is definitely me and not you.
I have grown increasingly unhappy in our twenty plus year relationship. What I once found exciting about our relationship has now soured. It is time for me to move on. I don't want you to feel like you wasted your time on me, but I definitely feel I have wasted my time on you.
I have loved everything about you. Your quests, your character building, your escapism and your world building.Remember that one time we stayed up late together over a meal of Cheetos and Moutain Dew? I love that I have shared moments with you that have been shared by mutual friends.I have spent entire paychecks keeping our relationship alive. I have waited up late nights for you to load or to release new content but you would never do the same for me. But really what have I gained?
In truth, you have always been there for me. Patiently waiting for whenever I needed you. You never left or cheated me. Sure we have experienced some tough times like when I cursed at you or threw your controllers, but we were young back then. I could mention the time your light turned red and you let me down right in front of my family, but nobody is perfect. I did let my little brother play with you, and for that I apologize. But we have spent countless hours and hours together. Hours that I could have been spending improving myself and improving others. Times spent with you could have been more productive and fulfilling doing almost anything else. It is time for you and I to move on from our relationship and part ways, plus, my eyesight is ruined.
I will always hold a place dear in my heart for you. You may not want this but I promise that we can stay friends and that you can come to visit from time to time. My children will want to get to know you and love you as I did.
Please don't call,and please don't come visit me at work. If I want to see you again, I'll reach out to you after putting on my glasses. But I promise I'll send you a Christmas card. Maybe one day we can just be friends and get together for Mountain Dew and Cheetos sometime.
