An Escapist Farewell

Our Editor in Chief bids farewell.

Read Full Article

Farewell good sir, Farewell.

Sad to see a familiar staff member go, I wish you luck in whatever you decide to do in the future, I also pray this isn't the last we see of you (on the Escapist anyway, even if it's just you lurking the forums).

That was quick. Good luck in whatever you do next.

Ah man, this sucks. It's been good having you here Steve and I thank you for all the hard work you've done for this site and your contributions to it. I wish you good luck in whatever you choose to do next.

Farewell!

I'll echo Josh's sentiments in wishing you good luck in your future endeavours and also hope that this isn't the last we see of you here.

Does this mean that you don't get a throne at the Escapist Expo with 'Editor In Chief' in big neon letters?

Farewell and good luck in your future endeavours.

"It is, quite literally, a site named after you, the Escapist, the person who is searching for an alternative to the ordinary."

Is someone cutting onions in here?...

That is exactly what I thought the day I came in for my interview: I can't believe this place is real.

As a kid, my mom would say the word "escapism" to me accusingly very often. She would come home from work and I'd be playing the new WoW expansion or working through Xenosaga on my PS2. In her mind I was wasting opportunities to be living a "real" life. Now my real life includes being surrounded by people that don't think my passion is a waste of time. Quite the contrary, my love of games is probably one of the most positive things in my life.

You were a great EIC, Steve, and your mustache would make Hulk Hogan jealous. Best of luck to you, my friend!

First Russ, now Steve.

Good God - Who's next? Graham?

That leaving speech is full of cliche and conjecture it's actually slightly funny.

Well, one must do what one must do - Have legs, will travel and all that.

God knows I've been through quite a few jobs in my time.

Fare thee well, Mr Butts and rejoice in your future endeavours.

Best of luck Steve, been a pleasure working with you!

Best of luck out there, Steve.

Sad to see you go, Steve, I hope you have the best of luck in all your future endeavours.

See you space cowboy.

Graham? Kind of a random next choice, there.

It's always a shame to see someone leave. Good luck with everything you have (or have not) planned ;)

keep on trucking friend, keep on trucking.

Hmmm... what's this article? ... Wait- Steve's leaving us!?!?

We'll miss you, Steve. Happy trails.

Good to have you, sad to see you go.

Edit: Goddamn you Daystar!

Good bye Steve. I'll miss hearing you when you are on the Podcast! :'(

Aww, I'm really sad to see you go, Steve. I've been reading your reviews for years, from way back in the IGN days and I was beyond excited to have you here. It'd be awesome if you still post on the forums, from time to time.

Good luck, wherever you end up!

Goodbye. It's a shame to see you go so soon after taking the position of Editor-in-chief, but I wish you all the best, and hope you go on to even bigger and better things.

Thanks Steve... Theve

Play him off, Bear.

What a bummer. I really like Steve and his reviews. And his voice reminds me so much of a paladin from an old WoW guild ages ago.

Secret world leader (shhh):
Play him off, Bear.

Aw, Bear in the Big Blue House! :D I love Bear in the Big Blue House. I'd forgotten all about it...

Good bye, good luck and may you have a bright future. I will miss you.

How could you forget about big ol' Bear?! :'(

I should see if I can track down an episode somewhere, this show was my childhood. They don't make kid's TV like they used to.

I'm sorry to see the sad reduction of facial hair at the escapist.

Aw man, this sucks! I hate to see my fellow Dr. Strange fan leave. I will miss giggling every time I hear you say "I'm Steve Butts" at the beginning of your game reviews :P

It feels like it was just yesterday that we were saying the same goodbye to Russ.

Well, guess it's time to start speculating who the next EIC will be. I vote Nasrin's cat.

GO SUSAN!!! (little too soon?)

Ahem... very sad to see you go Mr Butts. Good luck, and God speed. :)

I'll be taking over as Executive Editor.

I figured as much. It was the logical choice from the outside looking in, anyway. Be prepared to get an even bigger inbox every morning! XP

Good luck!

Wait, why's Steve leaving? Did I miss something? Was it all the feminism/sexism threads? It was feminism/sexism threads wasn't it? You had to get out before they drove you mad?*

*Kidding people. Don't lynch me

Either way. May as well play you out...

What, no! D:

Well, that's saddening, but I wish you the best of luck in future endeavors

Not much else to say, but...

Thanks for the memories

By the hoary hosts of Hoggoth! Say it ain't so!

In all seriousness: There were lots of good times, and this is not the end. Things shall only get bigger and better for everyone. Best of luck in whatever comes next for you, Mr. Butts.

Steve you were quite the fun Editor in Chief. I still remember when you became the EIC and everyone was making the theories that you didn't exist. Hope things go well for where ever you go.
captcha: the bee's knees. But...this isn't the bee's knees at all. This is sad. D:
