Nothing lasts forever. Nobody lives forever. Everything comes and goes. We all begin and rise and fade away...What then?"
- Edward Abbey
You never see it coming. One day, you're happily swanning about in flannel shirts or cargo pants, the next; your favourite trend is yesterday's fading fad. It happens to everyone sooner or later; from swingin' fondue enthusiasts to chubby Beanie Baby chasers. No matter how popular a hobby might be, it always reaches its use-by date eventually - and hardcore gaming is no exception.
