I think this account is about 7 years old. I didn't post here for a long time after leaving home. I used to be on here all the time.

Boards were better back then.

I've been a member since '08 but I have another account since '06. That would make it close to 8 years then.

I've been a member since before I got my original X-Box. Not sure how long ago that was but I would guess about 10 or so. I had to create a new account recently though as I haven;t been on in years.

#17 Posted by GazaAli (22491 posts) -

5-6 years I think. Wow that's a long time now that I think about it.

#18 Posted by jasean79 (2283 posts) -

I think I'm probably right around the 3rd generation when I signed up. But, only recently have started posting on the forums.

#19 Edited by johnd13 (7805 posts) -

2.5 years(3rd generation). Time flies indeed. When I joined I didn't expect that my post count would reach 7K.

#24 Edited by Namgis (3570 posts) -

This account almost 5 years. Lurked for years prior to signing up. Thinking about jumping ship, just need another community to latch on to.

#31 Edited by AmazonTreeBoa (16480 posts) -

10 years. Naturally not this account. I was hoping with the site change, I would have gotten my first account back, but nope.

#32 Posted by TheFlush (5419 posts) -

I've been visiting gamespot since the late 90's, but it was called different back then if I recall correctly.

I've been a registered member and using the forums since 2002.

Oh I've been here since 2003, but never even posted on the forums until 2007 or 2008.

#44 Posted by gunslinger024 (326 posts) -


Sorry for late response, GS notifications suck now :P and yeah i come here now from time to time just to check up on things. And I've gave up on my forum, freakin impossible to get somethin going nowadays.

#45 Edited by Randolph (10346 posts) -

Made this account in October 2001, but the registration dates only started being kept track of in May 2002 when the Lithium forums went up.

#46 Edited by jun_aka_pekto (15819 posts) -

I remember opening a new GS account in 2009 after forgetting my old one. But, it seems like they recorded me as having joined in 2010. Oh well. I don't care enough about it to request a correction.

#47 Posted by perphekt (1096 posts) -

almost 5 years, back and forth though. Never consistently on or off. Browse when i'm bored and or when i get time.

Real world has me tied up at the moment. :(
I don't even game as much as i used to.

#48 Posted by XilePrincess (13102 posts) -

I've had accounts here since probably the very early 00s, maybe even the late 90s, looking for cheat codes for games. I joined with this account in 2008 I think.
