Erik Bates, 2019 inductee
Erik might be the perfect player. He's exactly the sort of person that Scott Hardie wants to attract to Funeratic. Erik is loyal and patient, continuing to come back to the web site year-in and year-out for decades. Erik is friendly and good-natured, cheering on other players, not letting the competition affect his relationships, and forging lasting friendships that live on beyond the web site. Erik is a happy contributor, creating dozens of goos for everyone's pleasure, solving goos when he feels like it, and enjoying victory without stressing about it. Scott wishes that he had a hundred people like Erik participating in the web site. If writers have an "ideal reader" to whom they imagine telling the story, then Erik is the "ideal member" for whom Scott runs Funeratic. Celebrity Goo Game is still going after 21 years in large part due to the reliable positivity and friendship of Erik Bates. more…
