    Ah. PS3forums.com. There was some good times back then. It was definitely a more intellectually driven place than it is now. Don't get me wrong. Some people here are quite intellectual but the way the forums are set up now, you can't really debate to your heart and mind's content without fear of receiving an infraction or something of the sort. Also, there are people who just don't like being proven wrong on certain issues. I for one quite like it. Being proven wrong means I've learned something new. I long to return to those days where people stuck to their guns.

    I had my most fun on here between 2009 and early 2011. It was still ps3forums when I joined, and i used that url up until I no longer could. perhaps the best memory was the zombie apocalypse thread that was organised by gruddy a few years back. We were all put into squads and we got to choose weapon load outs and what our best skills were. then many of us wrote journal entries of the days events. It kept going for a good couple of weeks and there were some really good stories. I naturally have to give a nod to my british gaming thread, which despite reaching over 20k posts only managed to successfully organise 3 big joint gaming sessions.

    Back in the days where I would wake up in the morning and there would be 10+ pages of new posts in the subscriber thread since I had last checked it (often just before going to bed) . I would then have to read through pages and pages in the ban thread. ps3forums used to be the reason that I would stay up at night. I suppose I stopped frequenting the site regularly when I went to university, whether I moved on, or the site just wasn't what it used to be I will never know, but activity has certainly dropped down. Ironically it was about that time that I was given the smc position. It seems to be something of a curse on these forums, get to smc and then just stop posting. The only things that bring me out of the wood work these days are these kinds of threads.

    Most of the members that I got on with are gone: vintage, shaun, mali, lethal, fallingbullets, carocat, tribs, gilly, coma, reflex, kyaw, uber, dc, toony, holly just to name a few.

    I even miss cliche-skating

    On a related note, the Lefein pep rally threads always stick out the most when I look back to 2006 and 2007. He would create a thread about once a week where he'd make a long post detailing why things were looking good for the PS3. They read like motivational speeches.

    And the most memorable thread for me personally was the thread I made about the Final Fantasy VII Best Buy ad:



    This forum went crazy and the thread went on for hundreds of pages. People were coming in and telling us how stupid we were lol. Then the thread was deleted by the mods as soon as we reached the scheduled release date of the game and saw nothing happened.
    I remember that post.

    Aside from that image I mostly remember debates about HDDVD vs BluRay (man how that race was close) and a lot of spec talk. Threads with pictures had a 56K WARNING in the title. Seemed to be plenty of trolling back then (or I just don't go into the threads as much where it happens). I remember getting an infraction for trolling back Mbbest.

    Thanks for the necrobump ttech. Must've missed this around new years due to all the food and booze.

    Man oh man the memories. Heck I remember when this site wasn't called PSU.
    I am the oncoming storm.
