Used GS for reviews a very long time ago (omg fluffy doesn't game), and wandered into the forums. Think my first post was in the fallout 3 board.

Primary Games is such a slow board and I don't want to deal with fanboy nonsense in System Wars. This also allows be the chance to talk politics, so I saw a few interesting threads and here I am.

I joined because I wanted to post in the skyrim forums(been coming here for gaming news for some years before that) and as I was searching around I found out about this board and said "whatever- I guess it would be fun to post here".

At this point, I honestly have no idea.

Used to come here for reviews, I liked their different categories and how they each contributed to the overall score (before they changed it to the current system). I started reading system wars for fun (it's informative when you don't have to much time to browse about video games either). One day I accidentally clicked on off-topic instead of system wars, and now I'm here.

Same reason as you.

I got bored with System Wars.

I clicked on the OT button and never left.

I honestly don't remember.

I googled "off topic forum" and this was the first result.

I got bored of System Wars when the rules became more strict and arguing for fun became arguing around the rules. Saw some music threads in OT which were interesting back in '07/'08 and decided to stick it out. I mostly lurk though since it seems like OT is now exclusively for politics and girl help.

I was disappointed by the people in my life and I wanted to find a group of people who I could relate to... so I came on here and then I was disappointed by the people on here and the fact that I couldn't relate to them.

I'm trapped! I accidentally clicked one day and I've been stuck here ever since

First I joined TV.com July 25th, 2008 (which meant I also joined here on that date.) Over time I found Gamespot and checked it out, started being more active in 2010, though only posted in unions, wasn't until at some point in 2011 was when I first stumbled onto here and started posting.

I'm not on here a lot, but I know the community here is very popular

Once the 360, PS3, and Wii generation kicked off, and when a number of intelligent/funny trolls got banned from system wars, I just migrated here. That was sometime in 2008....

I didn't find OT. It found me.

#21 Posted by konvikt_17 (22378 posts) -

was playing Fable TLC some years ago and needed some info about some things. found that board posted in it through Gamespot. stayed with that board becoming a well known and knowledgable poster about the game. then it finally died. and i just searched the forums. joined a couple unions, stuck with one for a while(where most of my posts come from.). then checked the other forums. Found OT.

lurked alot back then posted every once in a while. wasnt until about the start of 2012 that i started posting here in OT regularly.

I got bored and just came right in.

That's a good question.

I use to lurk the PS section for years prior to joining; I only used this site for reviews and cheat codes back in the day and didn't feel the need to make an actual account. I made this account originally to troll, but I just kept with it. I originally joined for asking questions about games when I was stuck on any particular level.. Example. How do I kill X-character in Y-game to continue?

I think it was because the console and handheld forums were slow and then I tried viewing OT and started posting.
#29 Posted by TAMKFan (33053 posts) -

I was just looking at the main forums page one day after I had joined and saw OT and decided to have a look.

Boredom and wanting to roam more of GS at the time. On a less serious note, your username. ;)

You're kind of like the Origami killer........

Only you kidnap us and leave us here to rot instead of drowning us in some pit.............

I was googling pictures of house centipedes which led me to a post in a thread here in OT.

I replied to the post without realising how old the post was and I ended up getting modded for it.

was very depressed , needed a place online to chill besides gaming so started to drop by on OT from 2011.
