Happy birthday, Giant Bomb!
Happy birthday, Giant Bomb!

It's hard to imagine but today Giant Bomb celebrates the 13th anniversary of its full launch. That's right, Giant Bomb is officially a teenager! It's time for this site to complain about pimples and braces as well as social pressures about what clothes the cool kids are wearing.

Anyway, the site has certainly been through a lot in these past thirteen years. There are many people who have come and gone on Giant Bomb whether they be guests, staff, or users. Regardless of where you may be or how you may have found this silly site, I think a hearty thanks is in store for everyone who made this past thirteen years memorable and enjoyable.

13 years, right when I was finishing grad school. What a different world it was! And somehow GB endures.

Happy birthday, Giant Bomb! When the site started, I was in Iraq, trying not to get blown up by giant bombs. So I feel a connection.

I was a podcast-only listener for a year or so starting in 2010 or 2011, then came to the site for Quick Looks and stuff, and finally subscribed in 2016. Here's to many more years!

Happy anniversary GB! Hopefully you'll get through puberty just fine!

It is hard to fathom that I've been on this website for over 13 years if we count the blog.

This is where I finally learned all about the LiMB System.... and a little bit about myself.

Thanks GB!

Only screen I could find with the site. Seems it's from 2011.

"TYPE IT ON THE SITE! IT GOES RIGHT ON THE WEBPAGE ON THE SITE!"

I'm not convinced that half of those videos weren't made with the explicit intent of annoying stone-faced Ryan Davis. MAN I miss that energy.

I can still remember, while on vacation at my parents' house and half-past-drunk at 11PM, randomly thinking, "I wonder whatever happened to Jeff Gerstmann after the Gamespot fiasco???" and Googling him.

I found a blog crawl with some other ex-Gamespot folk, and a podcast that would fast become my must-listen of every week. And whose hands are these before me? Typing these words? They're so OLD AND WITHERED!!!

The memories of those early years really brings me back. I love this place. I never stopped following the staff content, but even though I don't use the forums much anymore, I enjoyed browsing and posting with the community. It's good to see that some familiar users ( @sweep !) are still involved.

Those first 5 years were the best, pretty sad to see the where this site is 13 years later. Not a very happy birthday
