Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Joined 1st Jan 2014. Cannae remember why. Reasons and stuff I guess.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Well, about time!



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm a single player gamer.

I saw the mod team doing a bad job and had to tell them why they are wrong.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

So far more than half of voters joined in 2009 or earlier; seems we have a high proportion of battle scarred veterans still around!
The first half of the 7th gen was indeed a very exciting time in gaming.

Seems a lot of us also jumped in on impulse after seeing a debate we felt we had to take part in.

I can't even remember what my first post was, is there any way to check? (Other than going back through "my posts" one page at a time for hours on end? XD)

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I joined early 2014. The struggling of Wii U and XBO awakened my interest in sales numbers.



I found VGChartz when RDR came out. I wondered if it was a successful game. This site gave me a little of that info. Though I didn’t realize how successful it was until I watched T2 stocks triple after RDR swept the VGAs. I don’t remember why I signed up. Probably a political or game argument. 

I left after the stupid “unity” fiasco. Some guy said Wii U would sell 250 million units and this huge argument happened. The guy had no idea what he was talking about. Kinda a cultist appeal. Made people like me who wanted Wii U to succeed feel a little pretend hope. I watched this place turn into lord of the flies for awhile. Private messages were spread in public. Things got real cliquey. The Place felt too toxic for me after that. 

I lurked since but I don’t even play video games anymore. I might occasionally turn on something from my pc collection but thats it. There’s some funny people here and the news it useful. I wish there were more GTA Online topics.
