Forums - General Discussion - How did you discover VGChartz?

Same answer as the last six times this thread had been made. I was looking for an alternative to the now defunct, and found this site. Made my account in 08' to tell Squilliam to SHUT. UP.

Nerds in the GameTrailers forums were arguing over whether or not this site was a legtimate source for sales information, so I checked it out.

Around the Network

Stumbled across this and the infamous Nexgenwars in 2006-2007, I was posting mostly on Gamespot and a few other sites, but the forums were becoming so toxic and unbearable and there was no one with this particular niche and a decent forum layout with decent discussion going on about sales and gaming. So, here I am, still after all this years, I check the site multiple times a day even if I don't post all that much now.

I was in a computer class in high school, I was googling console sales for 360 and found VGChartz.

Been so long (well over 10 years) that I can't even remember at all. I suspect Google introduced me though. 

I wanted to know how much the Wii sold over time.

2007 Realized its data was bullshit. Kept looking. Found Vgchartz. Rest is history.
