Blowing out candles on birthday cake

10 YEARS OF VGB? WOW! Time to blow out those birthday candles and eat that delicious cake already, haha! Although I started working on VGB back in October 2005, today is the official launch day when we started posting gaming news; purposefully a day before the Xbox 360 console launch. Making this the 10th anniversary! ^_^

Boy does time fly by fast when you’re having fun. Thank you all so much for visiting VGB over the years. Gamers are the best global community there is, and I truly believe that’s because we all have a shared memory of our favorite games that makes us recognize how similar we are despite outward differences and opinions. Here’s to many more years to come.
I’m looking forward to writing much more about the latest video game news, tips, etc.
There are so many cool games coming up, it’s an exciting time to be a gamer! πŸ˜‰

Thanks to my best friend for believing in me when most everyone else rolled their eyes at me for saying I wanted to blog about video games as more than just a hobby. Thanks to Josh for writing on VGB since Day 1 and sticking around like a true friend would. And if you ever contributed, or maybe we just chatted that one time, know that I appreciate you and I’m amazed by your kindness every day still.

      Heres to another 10 πŸ™‚

    • Congratulations to VideoGamesBlogger! I remember when VGB was just a twinkle in Ferry’s eye. He always had that foresight to see way beyond everyone else. I still remember when he copyrighted the website to 2015 I believe it was. At the time, that sounded insane… Would the site even be around that far into the future? I had my doubts, but here we are.

      I’ve been writing here for 10 years now and written thousands of articles. It’s been a very fun and enjoyable ride; and it’s absolutely amazing to me that we were still writing about PS2, original Xbox, GameCube and GBA games when we first started. VGB is so old… That youtube wasn’t even around in our early days!

      If you go back in time to 2005, you’ll notice that all our articles lacked one thing… Video. Back in those days, the dark pre-youtube times, there was no way to embed a video.

      It’s crazy to think about, but there was indeed a time when only the biggest sites could do video.

      I’m looking ahead to 2020 and I’m sure Ferry already has some grand plans.

      Thanks to all you readers, and all the developers for making amazing games for us to cover (and review!).

      The future is bright with Virtual Reality right on the horizon… how will videogames change in four years? I think we are on the eve of a quantum shift…

      But even when it occurs, I’m sure I’ll still be playing the good old gaming classics, given that I still spend as much time with my Game Boy Advance & N64 these days as I do with the new systems.

      The wonder of gaming is that it truly transcends generations, and cultures, just like Ferry said.

      I can’t wait to see what the future holds. Maybe everyone will be browsing VGB on their VR’s soon! Ironic, given that me & Ferry both LOVE the Nintendo Virtual Boy; a system that laid the foundation in many ways for VGB but was way ahead of it’s time…. And with that: GAME ON!

    • Thanks Mike! πŸ˜€ I hope you enjoy the VideoGamesBlogger anniversary and look forward to to the future!

    • Appreciate it Mike! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you Joe! πŸ™‚

    • That’s awesome Josh, thanks! And yes, I’m hyped for all the VR sets in 2016! πŸ™‚

    • It’ll be very interesting to see if traditional gaming fades any once we fully make the transition to VR… I don’t think it will happen, but you never know. VR may become the “new frontier” where all the energy for game development is used and traditional gaming takes a backseat… Interesting times afoot!
