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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.'

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.

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

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.

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