Final Thoughts

Dear Listeners of The Quest Gaming Podcast,

After much discussion and debate, The Quest Gaming Staff have come to the realization that the time has come to bring The Quest Gaming Podcast to an end. Its important for you to know that we did not arrive at this decision lightly. All of us here feel a very special attachment to our main show of our network, however, in short, it is not drawing the listener ratings that we had hoped to see at this time. Despite overcoming incredible adversity and odds at the beginning and toward the middle of the show’s run, the real drawback to our show is also its greatest strength: Its general gaming topic.

When we came up with the idea to do a general gaming show, we had no idea the kind of over saturated market we were inserting ourselves into. The fact is, without a large advertising voice to draw podcast listeners to the show, a show of this nature becomes lost in the sea of competitors. Even though the show’s topic is general and gives the staff an endless array of topics to discuss, if podcast listeners aren’t aware we exist, the quality of our show could be the best there is, yet it would still be unsuccessful due to low listener base.

We have spent hundreds and possible well over a thousand man hours creating the podcast series as well as spent well over a thousand dollars in equipment, software, advertising and exploration costs. The staff was committed to this show like no other, and yet, all we can say in the end that it turned out to be a learning experience for us. We started the series as a couple of gamers highly motivated to talk about gaming, and believe we now walk away from this show, as professional quality podcasters, whose art continually evolves.

For those of you who have listened to us, we thank you, endlessly. We know this comes at a great disappointment, however, this is NOT the last you will hear from Joe, Evarwyn and Mike. We are going to replace the show with a much more finely tuned and specific subject and take with us, all that we have learned producing The Quest Show, Skyrim Off The Record, Dungeon Quest and The Side Quest. Our main webpage, will now serve as our network’s main hub for all of our shows. News and updates will be posted as well as links to all of our shows, their main pages, all of our past and previous episodes and shows as well, including our Livestream Chat room and much more.

Thank you again for sticking with us and for listening to The Quest Gaming Podcast. It has been an amazing ride and even though this particular series could not remain competitive, our next show will be built with these mistakes in mind and far surpass what we have done in the past. Of this, we are sure of.

With Great Admiration, The Quest Gaming Staff
