So, while I was shopping at Ikea (Schaumburg), I noticed a fellow Giant Bomb user in the distance. He was wearing the throwback tee. I was too far to yell out, "GIANT BOMB", and I didn't want to run from one side to the other just to be like, "yo dawg, giant bomb is the shit!".

Anyway, has anyone had user sightings, and feel free to share your story!

#2 Edited by MackGyver (508 posts) -

I don't even know if any fellow GiantBomb users are even in my city.

Guy at my work rolled in with a Lincoln Force t-shirt.

#4 Posted by Video_Game_King (34600 posts) -

No, I've never seen another GB user in the wild. Then again, I don't know of any fellow Lunarians on Giant Bomb.

Was wearing my Lincoln Force shirt last semester and a dude at the dining hall called me out on it.

Then I ate some poor quality college food.

I saw a guy in my school wearing a members t-shirt but he didn't see me throw up the <>.  I wear my bomb shirt pretty often but nobody's recognized it yet.

#15 Posted by Redbullet685 (5980 posts) -

Never seen a fellow Giantbomber in real life.

#16 Posted by Keen_12 (135 posts) -

Never seen a real user, I don't think any of you are actually people tbh...

#17 Posted by JCTango (1354 posts) -

I bet if two GiantBombers met up in real life, they would have a duel to the death, right then and there!

#18 Posted by jorbear (2517 posts) -

I met a fellow GB user at a Starcraft II Lan Tournament. I was wearing my Whiskey Media Shirt to show all of those "gamers" what is up.

We need a signal so we can acknowledge eachother. Rub the inside of your knee with your middle and index fingers. Very gently. Do this for about five minutes upon entering a library, cafeteria, or any large lobby of potential Giant Bombers. I did this on an airplane and--whaddya know--both stewardesses were Giantbombers.

#21 Posted by Pop (2530 posts) -

man, I would love to see a GB dude, I would definitely do the <> sign and ask his username and say have batman at the end :D.

#22 Edited by SMTDante89 (2470 posts) -

A friend of mine, but that's about it. I have another friend that lurks a bit, but as far as I know hasn't made an account yet.

Edit: From West Virginia, by the way.

#23 Posted by TMThomsen (2068 posts) -

I've met my brother a couple of times.

#26 Posted by ninjalegend (408 posts) -

No, it's kind of sad. I am still working on converting my friends from other websites. Florida representing all over this bitch. I have a few of my buds that come to this site, but not sign up. I think it is only a matter of time. The GB will grow on you if you are a gamer. I also subjugate my fellow office members to the podcast while I work. Most think the crew is bat shit insane. Mission accomplished.

I wear my Throwback shirt all the time to try and get a few to say hi, but I don't think any are in Savannah. If you are, we should hang out.

#30 Posted by Beforet (2884 posts) -

Well, this one time I saw a guy with a Lincoln Force shirt across the street. I ran after him, but then tripped and scraped my knee. I cried for about 20 minutes, and when I was done he was gone.

:(

#31 Posted by Slaker117 (4835 posts) -

Made a friend at college, went to his dorm and saw his roommate on GB. I was all like "Hell yeah, Giant Bomb," and he responded with "Fucking thank you! None of these idoits have even heard of it!"

#32 Posted by Mr_Skeleton (5117 posts) -

I shoot Giant Bomb users in sight.

Shouting out 'Giant Bomb' in public is probably not the best idea XD

Also, never seen any fellow bombers :(

I live in a fairly small city.  There was somebody who sent in a question to the podcast about three weeks ago that was not only from this town, but also had my name.  How's that for small world syndrome?

I just can't stop laughing. I am so sorry.

I live in Grimsby, between St. Catharines and Hamilton in Ontario, Canada. I've heard a few GBer's live in Toronto but I've never met anyone.

#37 Posted by Ravenousrattler (1417 posts) -

nah never spotted another GB member, but i see a couple are from illinois so i guess its a future possibility.

#38 Posted by Brendan (7511 posts) -

@JCTango: I shall run around Bloor St. screaming like a banshee until you find me.

#39 Posted by Beforet (2884 posts) -

#43 Edited by AlisterCat (5398 posts) -

I really like my Tested shirt, but nobody recognizes it. I wouldn't expect anyone from giantbomb to know what it is automatically and I don't use Tested enough.

#44 Posted by one_2nd (2359 posts) -

I know a few users irl, other than that no I haven't. 

#45 Posted by Gerhabio (1969 posts) -

Saw a guy at a school dining hall once wearing a member's shirt but I didn't say anything to him. Another time I was wearing my throwback tee and walking to class when a slick looking dude in a suit told me "cool shirt", I didn't hear him and asked "what?", he repeated it and I said "thanks" and left 'cuz I was late for class.

#46 Posted by Shadow (4966 posts) -

I wear the GB shirt I won from that wiki contest in public all the time so either I've never run into any of you, or you're all too damn shy.

#47 Posted by Rolyatkcinmai (2661 posts) -

I saw a ton of GB'ers at PAX East in 2010 and 2011.

#48 Posted by AjayRaz (12389 posts) -

If I ever did, I would give them a big friendly hug.

#50 Posted by Bigheart711 (1250 posts) -

Nobody but me. I never saw a GB member in Real Life.
