    Beautiful article article, Wes. Seriously. It's cool to read the comments and see various people coming out of the woodwork that used to post here. I had briefly brainstormed an idea for an EoFF documentary talking about stuff like this back when Sean first made that thread, but seeing this piece get visibility scratches that itch for me. Very well done.

    Was there a man dismay'd?
    Not tho'(though) the soldiers knew
      Some one had blunder'd:
    Theirs not to make reply,
    Theirs not to reason why,
    Theirs but to do and die:
    Into the valley of Death
      Rode the six hundred.


    Cannon to right of them,
    Cannon to left of them,
    Cannon in front of them
      Volley'd and thunder'd;
    Storm'd at with shot and shell,
    Boldly they rode and well,
    Into the jaws of Death,
    Into the mouth of Hell
      Rode the six hundred.

    It was just freelance, but I was really glad to be able to get it published on Kotaku. Hope a lot of people read it.

    When I came up with the Godfather analogy I just knew it was a terrible thing to do to Del Murder, but I liked it too much to pass it up!
    In all seriousness this is super cool, great work my friend

    Azar: I must admit when you first told me about the article, I didn't have very high expectations. But wow, you knocked this one out of the park. From the comments, it looks like people who had never even heard of EoFF were absorbed by your overview of the rise and decline of fansites through EoFF's story. Great job. And I'm glad at least one of my quotes made the cut!

    Now I have the urge to play Sick Irony again.

    Why was it terrible? Because there was no mention of me and my tragic death when 100 FFL members ambushed me at a tollbooth?

    According to Kotaku comments, Danielle, that "blond girl" is reminiscent of Tifa. I wonder what that guy is trying to say...

    Awesome job Azar. It was quite a good read and reading through the comments reminds me of some of the old battles on this site. Especially the top one complaining about FFVII when clearly VI is the superior game. Then the argument wages on and people start bringing up other stuff.

    Nice read. EoFF has been through a lot, but here we are. :} Hopefully we'll get through another couple of years.

    If I'm Sonny and BoB is Michael I guess that makes Psychotic Fredo.

    Great article Azar! Though you did lose some credibility by interviewing Raistlin.

    Not gonna lie, when I found out about this it pushed me over the edge.
