    Dear Readers: Appreciation

    You know what I have come to realize this month? That far, far too many of you don't *really* care about GameCola. We grace your e-mail inbox with our free-of-charge newsletter once every month (well, almost every month), and you do nothing for us in return, not even so much as give us a lousy top 10 list. What the heck is with that, any? We might not even have a list this month if it weren't for the fortunate foresight of video game guru Terrance Atkins. Honestly, sometimes I think you just subscribe to GameCola because it makes you look cool, not because you actually give a h00t about us. Which is understandable, because everyone who's anyone subscribes to GameCola, but the very least you could do is show us some gratitude for giving you such elite status! Heck, at this point, I'd be happy to receive something so simple as some fan art, or even something so off-topic as a list of your 10 least favorite games. That's all I want, just some appreciation. If you'd be so kind. Danke.
