Working with you guys and gals for 5 of those years was a distinct pleasure. No other group I'd rather be with stuck in a small space for weeks at a time.

Been watching GameSpot for nearly all of that (had a couple account changes as I realized pathosfire was a dumb username, and whatever I had before that)!  It's been a great ride, and I look forward to much more.

Happy Birthday, of course :)


I can't recall how long I've been reading it, but it's quite a long time.  For years I mainly just used it as my game info lookup, and didn't generally browse it.  Then I started to browse it more and more, had an account for ages and then started commenting and following it daily.  Even that last stage was years ago now.

Happy birthday! I've been reading gamespot from the very beginning and your articles are still as brilliant. Can't say the same about the comment section, it seems to have degenerated into a troll pit lately.

I have to assume the 20th birthday will have a bit more pomp and circumstance than a 2 minute video.

Happy birthday gamespot :)

I remember coming here for the first time, I was looking for videos about Tekken's Nina: Death by degrees on PS2 lol Loved the game btw, despite everyone saying it is crap.

Then i went inactive until the time I got a PS3, where I mostly just watched reviews.

Only during the last two years I became active in other sections and stuck around for Daily shows :) and lately made a few "friends?" :P


Happy birthday and Keep up the good work!

Happy birthday, Gamespot. As a guy who's been a regular visitor since the beginning (or very close to it), you make me feel really, really old.

Think my first account on here was 2000/2001. I'd love to work for you guys but I'm just a lowly film-maker. Happy 18th! You can now legally drink, well here in England at least

Started here back in 2006, then became a part of the team in 2011. It's been amazing!

GameSpot has been my main gaming site for reviews and news since I was 12, almost half my life, In the last year, since my rediscovery of Twitter and graduation from college, I've been constantly informed and entertained, sometimes uplifted or inspired, by the shows and the community and the articles from GameSpot. Thanks and happy 18th! Here's to E3 2032 coverage. :)

I've had my account for 7 years but I still remember when I connected via modem to Gamespot and look for ratings and cheats.
