If the forums die, I'll miss all you guys and how stupid you are. There have been some good times, like way back when the GC was first coming out and we were all waiting patiently to play Rogue Squadron, or when we all first tried a DS. Without this forum I reckon I would have missed out on quite a few games over the years, Beyond Good & Evil comes to mind. What are you guyses memories?
I'll miss the anticipation, speculation and excitement about new games and hardware. I told you all it would be like a fishing rod. I promise I did. And that there would be no touch screen.

34 GADs (well, 31 after the collapse :-() is a pretty damn good achievement. So, yeah. I'll miss this place as well. If it does go, obviously.

I have indeed won a ridiculous amount of times.

But 2 of the games I didn't get as the company went bust.

I'll never forget my first Gameaday, Conker's Bad Fur Day for the N64...

I have won 36 times and that is the most special one of them all.

Tony hopes GAD will continue.

I'm wishing that I'd claimed a GAD that was in stock, because now I've lost it, but I'm sad to see Special Reserve go, I've spent a lot of money over the years and I've almost always been satisfied. Except when they sent me Donkey Konga 2x instead of Jungle Beat.

I'll never forget getting Perfect Dark a day early, or getting Rogue Squadron through the post on the morning of the 3rd May, but having no console to play it on.

The fact that I won 10 GAD's is a very, very nice bonus. But yeah, I haven't won (or tried) in about two years.

<3 you guys. :P

Bah... I nevr came on here for the games... it was this very (Ninty) forum that got my attention way back in 2001... when I made my first ever JAT post titled "GT3 comes to Gamecube" or something... I got flamed for deliberately wanting attention. Which was the only reason I posted in the first place.

Happy days
