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).

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.

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 ^^

Alex Baldwin : I'm getting choice paralysis on whether to cry about Dan leaving or be proud of him...

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.

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.

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

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 : Try being vegetarian to reduce choice paralysis XD

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

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

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

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

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

Lulink : Basically, don't be Dwarf Fortress.

Mark Brown : Good luck, Dan and Carrie!

Shingo Yabuki : 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.

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

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

Animated Carl : Well... shoot. Good luck, guys! Can't wait to see what you do next.

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!

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. ^^

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

Christopher OBrien : We salute you Dan, good luck.

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.

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.

Dallas Mann : Damnit. Sentiment kicking in.

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

Grant Dosland : Well that sucks...

RestingTea : EC will never be the same.

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

Michaell X : I'll miss you Dan

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...

Erii Tea : Im gonna miss dan so much. Thank u for all your work guys. Im looking foward to see your new producción :)

Elenzo96 : I came to this video while i was working on a video inspired by your work. Im studying to be an art teacher and i tought this format would be perfect for it. So, coming here, hearing that you leave and think about this is the last ec video you voice... just wow, im doing this basically because i admire the work you guys do here. It won't be the same Dan, the best Dan, i wish you the best from now on. Thanks for the inspiration (and sorry if i copy you and for my english). Thank you, and good job :)

keiharris332 : And then there were two... We love you Dan. Best wishes and thank you so much for everything.

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!

Andreas Delsing : Thanks Dan. Best wishes.

SirSmiley : See you guys. Loved you guys dearly c:

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

o O 0 : When you want to decide something, flip a coin. The coin doesn't decide, but what you wish when the coin lands is what you actually want

KEVIN LE : Wait what!? Why are you guys leaving!?

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

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.

Patrick Quion : Thank you!!! Oh my gosh I'm getting so emotional. Thank you so much.

holybutternutsquash : Dan!! Thank you so much, above all, for the positivity and encouragement! Not only was this series informative and educational, it was relieving and refreshing to watch. I'm sure that won't change with the introduction of Matt, but I'll certainly be unable to divorce your voice from those feelings. Good good luck with the Extra Frames relaunch, you can bet I'll be right there for it!!

Gorith : Did you really suggest making games less complex is a good thing? They have already been ruining gaming by doing that for years and we need to reverse that trend. If you lack the ability to overcome AP or CP you should just get out of gaming. I know that's harsh to say but I and many others like myself are tired of having complex engaging choices that make us sit down and really wrack our brains against them get taken away time and time again to "appeal to a broader audience". Games for more casual people are fine but it seems that those games have been coming at the expense of more hardcore games and that sometimes a game will have an announced feature that sounds absolutely amazing because of it's complexity only later to have that feature tuned down because it was "to complicated for the average player".

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.

Hero plays : Good luck dan and best wishes for you where ever you path leads you you will be missed but not forgotten as the best narrator a Channel could ever have

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