Extra Credits : Daniel and Carrie Floyd are amazing people we’ve been so proud and happy to work with for all these many years (since 2008!). We can’t wait to see what they work on next! (You'll still be enjoying Dan's classic cartoon voice in pre-recorded episodes airing next month, like our next Extra History series!) We're also excited to show you all the cool projects we have coming up in the rest of 2018, starting with the introduction of Matt you'll see next week in Extra Credits. We'll still keep making the videos you love (and then some).

TierZoo : Wow, bittersweet ending. Looking forward to seeing what you do next! I'll miss hearing you on EC!

Jeffrey Knipe : Ladies and Gents.... or lady and gent.... never mind, thanks. From the bottom of our hearts, for opening our minds and being honest even when it wouldn't pay to be. Extra Credits is the gold standard I point people to when I want them to understand that games are more than just a game and that there are a thousand factors in play when one is made. Keep rocking the web and we'll be watching.

ShyPoke : "Hey I haven't watched Extra Credits in a while, let's see what's going on." "I'm leaving Extra Credits." "Oh..."

GiggitySam Entz : Oh wow... That's quite something to see you go after all these years... Thanks for the great shows, excited to see more Extra Frames ! But no rush... We can be patient ^^

Micko Dooku : I think that the announcement of Dan's departure should have been a bit less hidden in a random video

Mother's Basement : I'm gonna miss you, high pitched Dan. You've been a real inspiration to me as a creator, and hearing your voice in videos has been a regular fixture of my life for years now. But hopefully this will mean regular-pitched Dan can get some much-needed rest. I still don't understand how you managed to keep up all these series while working a regular job. And it goes without saying, I'm really looking forward to Extra Frames.

Conroy Paw : Oh man... your voice is what got me hooked on Extra History. I will miss you.

Hugh Azuril : Wow. Dan leaving hit me way harder than it should have.

Astolfo of Charlemagne : Dan: -announces his leave with Carrie- This is where the real men cried. For real. The notice hit me like a thousand bricks. I'll still gladly follow the show weekly for as long as it keeps running, but you take a big piece of all of us with you, Dan. You will obviously be missed.

Joshua Mcclung : Wait you can't leave! His name is not dan! This is like trying to put a German prince on the throne of Spain and his name is not Wilhelm! It can't be done!

Just Write : I've been watching Extra Credits since the beginning, so it legitimately hurts that I'll no longer have your pitched up voice in my ear any more, Dan. Best of luck on your next project, and thank you!

Henry Allen : I'm not crying you're crying

GhengisJohn : This was me in/after highschool. *Meet with the guidance councilor* "You can be anything! With your intelligence and scores, you can _do_ anything!" Okay let me take some tests. "Your tests are back! Your scores are great! You can do anything you want!" "I don't know what I want. I want 100 different things. What way do my aptitudes point?" _"Everything!"_ All these years later, I've done nothing. And this wasn't just the answer I got from one person, this is the answer I got from a _lot_ of people. Maybe what I _should_ be is a guidance councilor who never gives a kid who clearly wants some advice the most bullshit answer ever.

Dusty : Wait Dan is leaving???? Will it even be Extra Credits anymore???

Alf Stølen : You got me interrested in history. I remember saying something super generelising and racist about Japan, but then my brother showed me the sengoku jidai series. Your voice instantly hooked me and ever since that, your voice has been my favorite on the internett. Nothing comes close to your slightly auto tuned voice Dan. I reacently watched the flu epedemic video and Matt (?) does his job well, but I'll never the less miss you å lot.

Game Maker's Toolkit : Good luck, Dan and Carrie!

Creature Feet : Extra credits simply won't be the same without you, thank you for all the great videos you were a part of. Good luck in your future endeavors.

Leo 9 : goodbye dan I hope you move on to better things

GiggitySam Entz : Try being vegetarian to reduce choice paralysis XD

Bearded Eddie : Oh no... You're leaving. Best of wishes my friend. I seriously feel like crying a little ;__;

Blizzic : Thanks, Dan, for everything. We'll miss you!

Brandon Daniel Soto : This.. this is sad. Dan. I don't know if you will ever read what I have to say. I hope you do. my name is Brandon Soto. I remember being tired a long while back. A little over a year ago now. This was back when I was still fighting my demon's and battling depression. It had been a long day and I figured "ehhh screw it lets check extra credits" I had found the channel through a games you might not have tried episode and since then I'd check in everytime I wanted to think. But that day I was surprised. Instead of green there was an orange episode. I spent that night as hilarious as it sounds binge watching the 2nd Punic war... Dan you and the extra credits team as a whole have become a very important part of my life. You have helped to teach me history and design and even consider some philosophies. The difference between rage and sadism, the many lessons history has to teach us and especially the Injustice episode..As someone who still has scars (both literal and figurative) A Frank examinations of the effects of trauma was ironically enough the thing that made my day. It was something I could show my dad when he had trouble himself understanding what I was going through. In short.... In a lot of little ways you helped me change my life. So am I happy for you? Absolutely! I wish you nothing but the best in your new Ventures with the person you care for. But regardless I still cannot help but be saddened. Not the kind of sadness that comes from a death in the family but more the quiet kind that comes when a friend moves away. They're still a part of your life and you still touch base and say hi. But I can't help but feel a twang of melancholy as I say: Fare Thee Well.. and thank you.

ILoveEverything : I respect Dan's choice to leave very much... And he has EVERY right to do so without ANYONE saying otherwise... It just sucks that I am not the biggest fan of Matt... I am also scared some people will leave because of this change... I don't want to stop watching this channel...

MagicMaster667 : I feel old now. Where have all these year gone? - Anyways, I wish you all the best. :D

Black_ Fog : I dout he will ever see this comment but if he does Dan. I'm proud of you, and what you did with this channel. I hope what you have planned for next turns out atleast half as good. As a certain number one hero would say "Plus Ultra" Dan. We will miss you.

حسين عبدالله : Aww, Dan is leaving? This is sad. Well good luck to you sir and thank you for for years of education and entertainment. My whole youtube career, which changed a lot of things in my life, was inspired by your work. I just wanted you to know that this project of yours touched and changed many lives across the world. Lives in far lands from you, lives you may never meet or hear from, but make them better your videos sure did. To this day I keep repeating “fail faster” to myself whenever I struggle creatively. Thank you for everything Dan - and to James as well. I hope and pray for you to have wonderful life and career.

RestingTea : EC will never be the same.

Lulink : Basically, don't be Dwarf Fortress.

András Fogarasi : *Then comes some nerd who uses math to maximize damage.*

Tony TheTGR : We're just going to refer to Matt as X-Dan.

A C : If this channel stands for a thousand years,viewers would still say,this is our finest hour.Always remember,history is written by the victors.Then the evangalion theme song began and Dan and Karrie left.A perfect ending for this

Sky Fantasy World : "It's been awhile since i last watch extra credits" *hears new voice actor* "did daniel get more masculine or what ?" *watches few videos and finds this video and sees that Daniel will be leaving* ";^; my fav voice actor... im having mixed emotions, should i be sad or proud ?? im confusedletz"

Genuine Angus Beef : Holy End of an Era, Batman. I'm super sad to see Dan go. Extra Credits was one of the very first channels I ever consistently followed on YouTube, and realizing that I was in middle school when that happened blew my mind. I swear, his style of narration is so ingrained in me that I end up mimicking it out of habit when lecturing peers, and I never noticed until someone actually pointed out how high a pitch I was talking at. It's a rare thing for me to say for this kind of content, but Dan was a large part of this channel's experience for me, and this may end up being one of those significant reminders for me that life changes things all around you. Best of wishes to Dan and Carrie. And best of luck for the incoming Matt!

משה רובין : wow.... dan, dude, i am here for a long time and not hearing your voice in next videos is gonna be weird, you guys made me realize this dream is possible, thank you for every thing.

Comic Drake : Been a fan since the Escapist days so I'm no stranger to great talent having to leave the channel, but y'all still did amazing work and will be missed. From the bottom of my heart, thank you guys for all the amazing content!

Christopher OBrien : We salute you Dan, good luck.

ArmyAnts Studios : 8:56 if you slow the footage down you see that dan tie turn into a snake no really

SuaveNerd2000 : wow... the ending just made me feel like the ending of Fresh Prince of Bel Air... or Friends... It's not a true ending, it's just people moving on with their lives. It's kinda a good feeling despite it feeling a bit sad.

Sebastian Gamero : Noooooo! I've been a fan since the original "Video Games and Storytelling", and i will follow your future work no matter the channel.

SuperSamStuff : I've been watching these videos since they began, when I was perhaps too young to properly even understand them, but my view of the world was so malleable. Thank you for helping to shape the way I see such an important part of my life. This channel will always mean so much to me

Bearded Eddie : Analysis Paralysis! Analysis Paralysis! Analysis Paralysis... That is fun to say! :P and strangely fun to hear... I smiled every time you said it. ^^

Gore Obsessed : If only premade characters were any good in those games custom class for life

Andrei Tache : What a bombshell of an ending... I can’t even imagine this channel without your voice (no pressure Mat ;)

Layyah Fashioner : I am so sad about this. I watch extra history all the time. I didn't know that this was announced on here, so when the new guy started my son told me that Dan just wasn't doing high pitched voiceovers anymore and that he must have decided to grow a beard. Well congrats to you two, and my your next projects be more successful than your last always. You will be sorely missed! We, my children and I, love you much!

Jorge Conte : Took me around two years to watch all the episodes, and I always loved there was a cool EC episode I could find and watch. I eventualy caught up and rolled with it. Now that Dan is leaving, I feel a little sad. It will never be the same feeling, but I do hope it can be as good or better with Matt. So I wish him as well as the Floyds the best of lucks! :)

Vocalcoyote : I am going to be honest I will never like the new host as much as i Loved turning on EC and hearing Dan's voice, but I will still watch the channel and to know your still going to be making content makes me happier than if you were going to just fall off the face of the earth

Craft_Warrior1 : 8:58 Set the video to 0.25 and look at his tie... It's a snake!

Max Chan : ''Im leaving extra credits''... Goodbye Lad,thank you for such a good series to this day ,thank you for the 3 am videos that i watch...thank you for soo much... i just wanna say goodbie boi edit wait ARE U BRODERS?

Michael V : I must be in the minority. I spent two weeks planning my D&D character when I first got Neverwinter Nights. Planning out my character was just as much as playing the game. I love having more options than I could possibly hope to optimize fully.
