For some reason it took me almost a year to finally make a GB account.

#2 Posted by ajamafalous (12003 posts) -

Several months.

#3 Posted by Delicious_Brains (170 posts) -

I made an account and started posting on the forums about a month after I found the site. I still wouldn't call myself an active commenter, but I do like the place.

#4 Posted by EvilKatarn (465 posts) -

Quite the long time. I'm pretty sure I started checking out the site regularly in late 2008

#5 Posted by iAmJohn (6120 posts) -

I created my account the day the site launched.

#6 Posted by Nasar7 (2687 posts) -

Same here. I feel like I was here near the launch, but never felt motivated to actually join. No idea why, though.

Same deal here. I was sad when Jeff left Gamespot and followed his blog until he told me to check out his new website... which just so happens to be this place.

Probably six months to a year? I'm not completely sure, but it's a good question.

#12 Posted by Hoffafiles (285 posts) -

I enjoyed the site for quite awhile before I made an account.

I don't regularly post on forums, so I didn't "need" to make an account, plus I'm lazy.
#13 Posted by craigbo180 (1739 posts) -

Took me a few months.

#14 Posted by HeroesDieInVain (23 posts) -

And now that I have one, I don't know how I lived without one.


The Quests are soooo addictive!
#15 Posted by Jolt92 (1552 posts) -

Like half a year or something..? I don't know. I might have had an account but just didn't post on the forums.

During the Persona 4 Endurancerun

#17 Posted by super2j (1699 posts) -

found the site when i googled videogame comedy. Once i found the site i watched a couple of videos. And i think it took me some time but i got one probably a month after. Its pretty random when i sign up to a site.

#18 Posted by danimal_furry (1453 posts) -

Since the days of how to build a bomb.
#19 Posted by abdo (1037 posts) -

Made my account the first time I visited the site. Didn't start using it until a year after I signed up.

#20 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

I visited from the time it opened basically, but for whatever reason wasn't interested in the forums until Dec. 5 2008.  So, from the time of launch to then.

#21 Posted by redAnt (4 posts) -

Only found out about this site (and the others) through a post on reddit about 6 months ago and have been hooked since.

#22 Posted by Rattle618 (1463 posts) -

A few months I suppose.

#23 Posted by PhatSeeJay (3322 posts) -

Well pretty much day one but I didn't use it for a while since the site was under development at that time.

#24 Posted by yoshimitz707 (2453 posts) -

My cousin forced me to make an account pretty close to around when Giant Bomb started. Didn't really get the site until a couple months after, though.

#25 Posted by GeekDown (1170 posts) -

I think it was a few months. Can't quite remember though.

#26 Posted by Jothel (926 posts) -

had my name on the pre-registration e-mail list so... as soon as it launched i guess

#27 Posted by KarlPilkington (2731 posts) -

Couple of months.

#28 Posted by Klei (1768 posts) -

A year. I usually don't care for accounts.

#29 Posted by kishan6 (1914 posts) -

probly a year

#30 Posted by OldGuy (1558 posts) -

As soon as you could make an account, I made it.

#31 Posted by Skald (4367 posts) -

Months.

#32 Posted by Mechanical_Ape (251 posts) -

I started coming to the site when they started doing the Persona 4 Endurance Run, but I didn't register because I rarely use the boards. I only registered once they started the quest system because I was curious about it.

#33 Posted by OtakuGamer (1238 posts) -

Maybe a week after launch. Its been awhile.

#34 Posted by SaNdMuNkEy (38 posts) -

I've been lurking about 6 months, finally made the plunge a few days ago..

#35 Posted by TheSilentTruth (1115 posts) -

Moments after getting banned from GameTrailers.

#36 Posted by N7 (3590 posts) -

A few months.  I wasn't really interested until another forum I used to be on died down DRASTICALLY. I mean, the forum was basically killed.

Came here, been happy since.

#37 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8699 posts) -

One or two quicklooks.

#38 Posted by imsh_pl (3295 posts) -

It started with my brother showing me the Persona endurance run.  When I finished it I didn't really visit the site for a while, but a couple months later I started to be a regular visitor.

#39 Edited by PenguinDust (12523 posts) -

I registered in December of '08, so whenever the site went live until then.  Honestly, I don't think I visited the site more than a handful of times before that, but I was a weekly listener to the podcast since it first began. 


Hmm, you know I think I quit WOW at the end of November in the same year, so with all that free time on my hands, I guess I decided to spend them here.

Day one, baby!

#41 Posted by SethPhotopoulos (5268 posts) -

3-4 months.

#42 Posted by James_ex_machina (905 posts) -

I listened to the bombcast for a couple of months then started visiting the site. I thought the quest on the front page seemed interesting so I joined. The Lincoln Force shirt forced me to become a member. Lousy pun intended.

Now I site around watching videos on here all the time. It's becoming my #1 site overall.
#43 Posted by RoboRobb (1052 posts) -

I've been here since pre-DAY ONE (follower through Game$pot).

#44 Edited by GetEveryone (4455 posts) -

I have no idea; I have no idea when I started reading, either. Though, I'm sure it's been a while.


People put a lot of importance on having 'been around since this place was just a blog, man.'
#45 Posted by CitizenKane (10506 posts) -

Dave created mine a few days before the site launched.  =P

#46 Posted by crusader8463 (14422 posts) -

I made one as soon as I found it.

#47 Posted by choffy21 (1376 posts) -

About 3 minutes. As soon as I heard the site launched, I signed up. Though, it was always my secondary site until early 2009, when I (finally) got fed up with Gamespot. Best decision I've ever made.

#48 Posted by EpicSteve (6487 posts) -

About an hour after launch, only because the site was really slow during launch. 

#49 Posted by Turambar (6786 posts) -

Someone on gamefaqs made a thread on the endurance run.  Clicked it, felt the need to make a comment, and made an account on the same day.

#50 Posted by C0V3RT (1377 posts) -

Day 1. I also had an account under the same name back when GiantBomb was in word press format. Those were the days...
