RPGfan served as my guide when I got my PSone. That long list of reviews actually convinced me to go for a, eh, somehwat modified model. No worries, RPGfan didn't turn me into a pirate! I bought the Lunar games, Xenogears, Chrono Cross, Valkyrie Profile and many more fair and square.

RPGfan did play a pretty big role in how I turned out. This site pointed me towards many interesting games (including Fire Emblem and Ace Attorney back when they weren't any localised installments available!). I played those games (eventually) and that made me stand out when I started looking for work as a game journalist. So thanks for helping me get started, RPGfan :)

And of course there are many awesome people here. People who let me vent when life sucks, people who know how to have a good discussion about games, and most importantly, people who make me laugh.

I've been playing rpgs since my brother first brought home FFIV (II at the time) for our snes when I was in the 3rd grade.  I first found RPGFan when I was in college at Purdue in the mid 2000's.  And I can honestly say, with very few exceptions (FFXIII being the big one) I haven't purchased a physical copy of a single RPG that these guys didn't review favorably.

I randomly signed up recently because the forums at my old go-to site completely fell apart and i needed somewhere else to waste time during work.  I'm sure you're all horrible horrible people and I look forward to learning to hate each and every last one of you.

Thanks to RPGFan, I bought a bunch of games and have a huge backlog that will never get cleared. But this site got me addicted to the SMT series, so I'll always be thankful.

Thanks to RPGFan, last night I was able to decide between getting Mugen Souls Z and Guided Fate Paradox. Was at work and didn't have a lot of time, so I decided to just go with whichever one got a higher score on the site. (I think... I may have changed my mind after reading the pros/cons. Went with Guided Fate)

They fixed the Mugen Field bug recently so that might have been a factor worth considering last night.

Then again, this is Mugen Souls Z we're talking about, so you had already taken the lesser of the two evils on that call.

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Thanks to RPGFan, I became a fan of RPGs again.

Ten or so years ago, I sold most of my ps1-2 games around the time I graduated college and didn't play RPGs for quite some time. Reading the reviews here helped me get back into RPGs and discover my passion for them. I couldn't imagine what I would have missed out on if I had passed up Xenoblade Chronicles or even giving the FFXIII series a try again after I got semi-jaded on FFXIII-1 to discovering how much fun FFXIII-2 really was.

Recently this year I've become a convert to 3DS rpgs (starting with Bravely Default) and then I started getting to know more people on here. Some solid advice from members here on strategy for gameplay that paid off when my players felt underdeveloped or feeling stuck.

I've been enjoying SMTIV lately and oddly enough it's the first SMT title I've played since Persona 1 back on the old ps1. I'm eagerly looking forward to SMT x Fire Emblem whenever that sees the light of day.

It's also fun having other interests in common with you guys on here besides rpgs like anime, football, movies, tv shows, music, etc.

I just want to throw in my two cents and say that I love this site as well. I really wish I posted here more, but the articles and reviews are always a great read. Taelus' Theatrythm review, for example, was especially interesting to read. I really liked how he gave some examples of how Final Fantasy left an impact him. For a game that's riding heavily on nostalgia, that actually really helped me to get a sense for how much he enjoyed the game. I actually don't have much nostalgia for the Final Fantasy series, but I can definitely relate to a lot of those scenes described in the review, albeit with other games.

I especially love the community, though. I know I don't talk enough here, but I love seeing all the discussions people have. There are a lot of intelligent users here, and most of the time people tend to get along well enough. Seems like a lot of people have fun here, too. I don't wanna gush, but I can honestly say this is the best community I've been to, and has been at least since I joined in 2010.

I've been on other RPG forums, but have abandoned them since they weren't really RPG forums at all. I like that people here have at least some level of interest and knowledge about this stuff instead of the usual dirt throwing.
