I came from GameFAQs, along with many others. I came at the time when HG was basically already up and running though, but while the GameFAQs' scene was still active. People were already crossposting their material on the two, but I didn't bother with HG for a while because I thought it was small time, like some dude's geocities site. Eventually it became clear that the GameFAQs' scene was migrating to HG, and I realized that HG was much better than I had given it credit for, so I jumped onto the bandwagon.

I google searched for a game review community for user reviews and it was the 2nd or 3rd link.

Longish story... If it bores you, skip it.

I also came from GameFAQs. I was one of the lower tier reviewers. I went on hiatus right before GameFAQs review contributing went down the tube because I had completed college and was at a full time job I absolutely hated. The one plus about the job was that I discovered new people to hang out with... who had a fondness for alcohol. I woke up one morning in 2007 and thought, "What the hell am I doing? I'm making peanuts at a shitty job and drinking away my twenties..." I have since gotten back on track and have been trying to rediscover the things I used to do, reviewing being one of them. I went back over my reviews and realized just how much they sucked. I wanted to learn more about good reviewing, but all the old review contributors were gone. I found this place through aschultz's contributor page and thought, "Eh, what the hell?"

Erm... did you actually read his post, or did you just morph it into what you wanted it to sound like?

He might have morphed it into something different, but I like it. That would be a great way to advertise this site into something big and special.

Huh, haven't seen this before.

Well, for the record, I was brought here because zippdementia and I know each other from another site.

He mentioned this place a few times and at one point suggested I sumbit a review or two. One day I was in a reviewing type of mood, so I wrote one for something I thought no one else would ever review (Mario's Tennis on Virtual Boy) and lobbed it at HG.

No, sadly, it hasn't saved me from that. I still drink, just not as much, and I work a slightly less shitty job. At least I'm going to school later this year.

Big exodus of talent from Review Contributors on Gamefaqs.

Been here since, albeit on and off.
