I was looking for sales figures when the Wii came out. The next thing I know I was checking in to the site daily, then hourly, then seemingly every minute for a while there. It was quite the addiction until around '09. I'm not sure exactly what broke the addiction, but I think the quality of threads started to diminish. Many users had already left and a new breed was coming in and spamming pretty heavily. It's amazing how quickly spam threads used to be able to fill up the front page. I think there were post count wars going on at the time or something.
