'I can't do this anymore' - BornFree is heavily considering ending his fighting game content creation, but not after one last big hurrah

If you want him to stick around, now's the time to let him know

It was late 2015 when I first recall seeing a video about how Oro might wind up in Street Fighter 5 based on a fairly far fetched theory involving Kid Robot figurines. Though not necessarily totally convinced, I found myself both intrigued and impressed by the pleasant presentation and "around corners" kind of thinking I saw from Mark "BornFree" Sheridan.

Since then Born has come forward with some great live streams, highly entertaining FGC skits, and a reputation for being perhaps the best player interviewer in the community, scoring some pretty amazing discussions with the likes of Rohto|Tokido, RB|Bonchan, and probably a hundred other major figures from all corners of the FGC. That all might be ending.

It's been a while since we've heard from Mark, but he recently surfaced on YouTube to share an update. Though it's clearly his passion to live, breathe, and talk fighting games, this particular venture has not been good on his personal health nor wallet (though a few part time jobs have kept things moving for the time being).

He is thusly considering packing up shop and ending his content creation spree, but will first carry out one last hurrah as he makes one final effort to bolster up his brand with two weeks of hardcore streaming, followed by two weeks of interviews, and then finally two weeks of skits.

If nothing has taken off after that month and a half, it's on to new chapters and new things for BornFree. If you'd like to see more in the future, you can subscribe to his Twitch channel, donate to his Patreon page.

There's plenty more in the full video as Born further details the obstacles he's been wrestling with and his plans for where he wants to take things in the future. Give the video and watch and, if you enjoy his content, please send your support BornFree's way.
