Tim Stone wrote about very niche genres, I’m not going to mince words here. Not just his style, but this too will make him hard to replace, would be my highly uneducated guess.
In fact, I can’t help but wonder if they will even want to - RPS today seems a different kind of site, one that’s no longer very interested in the fringes of gaming. We’ve all heard the Graham singing his ‘getting on with the times’ tune, haven’t we? Wargames and bus and train sims might not be exactly what the cool kids play on Twitch.
Anyway, Tim’s was the last voice that I can personally identify as the old guard. No matter how big her role in recent years, Alice is a relatively recent addition and part of the less luminous stretch of RPS.
It’s also exceedingly sad to see him go this way, as many will likely be so disappointed, that they might stop following him altogether.
There is truly no win whatsoever here /shakes head
