For sure, if we aren't learning, then we aren't living much. If I didn't try to push into territory that's new to me, I'd be an unhappy guy!
And yeah, there are a ton of folks at RPS that still write for PC Gamer UK and other magazines. It really is one of the top PC sites around, and we're huge fans here. I get a bit disgruntled about the art comments at times, as that sort of commentary hasn't been what I associate with RPS in the past, but that's nothing to say against the site itself, or even really the membership that comments, etc.
