I just renewed my subscription, and the billing page informed me that I originally joined the site in 2009. It got me thinking, why do I keep watching these people? They've become part of my life, somehow like friends I'll never meet, even though they're at my house every single day. Internet weirdness, thousands of miles of distance, yet their opinions and what happens in their life is kind of more important to me than the shit going on with people in my actual real life (which I don't have because video games).
I guess what I'm trying to say is thank you. The whole Giant Bomb crew, present and past - thanks for making one fat guy's life that much better.
