I guess I am some 11 years later. Even though I haven't been very active, I do check in from time to time.
It's been a heck of a ride. I joined during the height of the 'console wars' and the format wars. I suffered for a while as a Sony fan but my faith was rewarded lol
In any case I'm glad the community is still going even if the passion has fizzled out somewhat. In a way it's a blessing to be a part of a more laid back community.
I especially appreciate the fact that we can usually have a good discussion even if we disagree.
