Hey: I want to clarify on what I posted. It's inconsiderate, that's true enough.
I like the work that Patrick, Chris and others do, as a hobby of theirs and a definite passion. And I think that they've done great articles on game music albums in the past and continuously—I wouldn't have gotten into this if it weren't for the many game music articles I've read on SEMO for such a long time. I want them to keep writing the stuff they want to write, and I don't think I've truly expressed my gratitude to Chris for putting up with this episode.
When I was writing that post, I never meant anything personal, and I never outright targeted anyone for writing "shitty articles". From my perspective, though, I'm just not seeing a specific kind of game music analysis that's sorely-lacking, and I got a little out of control with the euphoria granted from finally coming across a moderately-active game music forum where I could be more vocal about my opinions. There are multiple ways to write about game music, and I strongly believe in providing a new perspective both through a different opinion and through a different methodology. As far as I know, Chris' efforts haven't been wasted, nor have the works of others; I'm a little too enthused over mine, which happens from time to time.
At the end of the day, though, I know what it feels like to think I'm being personally-targeted by generalizations, especially when I know that generalizations always have exceptions and, ultimately, I'm not going to name either the exceptions or any other game music writer in the "non-preferred" category. So: I'm sorry for looking so out-of-place and, according to some, "pompous".
No need to talk about having a bad week or anything like that, either. This is just my candid reaction and warming-down. That's all. And if you want to bash me over the head over it, please know that I'm human too, and that I'm here to apologize, not argue.
