    Everyday GR seems to get more and more members and I keep wondering, "How did they even hear about GR?" My guess is that a majority of them Google cheat codes or walkthroughs and somehow they eventually end up here.

    I was introduced to Game-revolution (way back when you HAD to put that dash in) during late 1998. I can't believe I remember this; but I was talking to one of my friends outside near our schools portable classrooms after class and I think I was asking him how about a certain game. He then told me to hit up this website and I wrote it down and everything. After a few reviews I was hooked on its harsh rating system and (whats that word for, "writing the way you speak?" yeah that word) and funny reviews.

    I only recently joined because I was never knew what a forum was back in eighth grade and I also hate signing up for things. :roll:

    Damnit I should've put this in the MISC Topic

    I think I discovered GR back in 1997 ( it might have been 1996). It was more or less the first time I tried the internet. My school had several computers with internet connections and we were taught how to (God I hate this expression) “surf the webâ€

    Googled(might've been using Altavista or something else at the time) cheats or something like that. After I always end up here for cheats/walkthroughs I read some of the articles and started coming here for them. After a while I needed help and signed to the forum, but I have been visiting the forums frequently for only about an year or so.

    I was browsing the web for Spawn: Armageddon cheats (it wasn't that bad... if you were a Spawn fan), and I stumbled across the cheat section for GR. To my annoyance the cheats provided didn't work, and I signed up on the forums to ask people for help in finding cheats to the game. I was directed to Cheat Code Central, but I bookmarked this place and have been a fan for the last oh, four or five years. There have been some occasions where I thought the grades were a little too harsh, but eh, beyond those rare occasions I've pretty much trusted GR to tell me what's exactly in store for me whenever I venture forth to purchase a new game.

    Back in '97 I googled cheats for the good old ps one, found this site and loved it. Didn't know there was forums until the big change in 2005, and I signed up .

    ^ same as me. I would get all my cheats from GR and signed up. I didn't participate in anything until now.

    I found the site by searching for some Tomb Raider cheats 10 years ago (it appears thiss ite was popular for that). Later I found the mailbag, laughed, and just came back to the site for that. A few years later I finally noticed the forum and registered.

    You know speaking of the mailbag, does GR still answer every single letter that is sent to them? I know back in the day they did, but this site is much bigger than it used to be.

    My friend told me about it years ago. I liked the cheats, then came back for the reviews and previews. One day I realized I could join the forums and so I did. That was the day light was finally allowed to shine into all of your hearts, the day of grandma.

    I found the site and message board in 2000 looking for strategies to beat the one winged angel form of Sephiroth in FFVII. When the new boards where put up I joined shortly afterward.


    All hail Rev 23. He was awesome.
