    1. Without wanting to bring gloom to a fun place I’ve suffered from depression for many years I’m 38. Games are a short escape for me they do help and Christmas is hard because you know people are having a fun and happy time and when you don’t feel like you can be happy with everyone else it makes you feel worse but thanks for mentioning it.

    2. I very much appreciate nintendonews.com for thinking about the readers. People often forget in the mad dash to buy things about the things that cannot be bought with silver and gold. Thank you for thinking of others. I can’t say that there are many sites that I have seen today that have thoughts of others emotional health in mind but that is what is special about the Nintendo community. Still N touch with the heart. Thanks again.

    3. Thats a very thoughtful message depression is something that affects people that you love and you don’t even know it Christmas is the worse of months for this thank you for helping bringing awareness to this

    4. It truly is fantastic that you guys went out to say something so overlooked. I am personally not struggling with suicidal thoughts, but it warms my heart to see a website make it a focal point and try to get the message out. Brilliant idea. It was especially beautiful when you offered up your own staff emails. I have never commented on this site before, but this sparked me to to say something. I also want to say that I truly enjoy your informative, brief news, and how you go over the small details and news as well. Thank you NintendoNews staff for your great website and this wondrous article.

    5. That was awesome. I don’t know anybody struggling with depression, but that was cool. I’ve never seen a site do that before. Take care, and have a great Thanksgiving; you guys are awesome for that! :)

    6. I never quite realized the people that ran this website were so nice and pleasant.
      Now I feel bad for any criticism I’ve left on the site.

      I apologize for anything I may have said that has made the stuff here feel bad.
