Surfer Girl quits - we am cry


Sadness. Surfer Girl's made her last post, saying that the point of her blog was to "force folks to pay attention to important things going on in the real world and encourage them to become activists for social and political progress. I probably failed miserably, but at least I tried."

You didn't fail, lady. Our newsreader's been full of politics for months thanks to you. And you always made us laugh. And you were on the money most of the time, which is more than can be said for half the f**king jokers given to pouring crap into our hard drives every day.

We salute you. RIP.

Founder & Publisher (Former)

Patrick Garratt is a games media legend - and not just by reputation. He was named as such in the UK's 'Games Media Awards', the equivalent of a lifetime achievement award. After garnering experience on countless gaming magazines, he joined Eurogamer and later split from that brand to create VG247, putting the site on the map with fast, 24-hour a day coverage, and assembling the site's earliest editorial teams. He retired from VG247, and the games industry, in 2017.
