Moddb. I discovered this haven right after defeating Nihilanth for the first time. Consequently, I had just beaten Half-life for the first time as well. I had received Half-life Generation, a box set with HL, it's expansion packs and a disc devoted to Counter-Strike, Team Fortress Classic and Absolute Redemption.
Then I wanted to play even more.
It was all back in 2007. I had just turned 13 and promptly decided that I was mature enough to join a english community. But it was such a long time ago, I cannot remember what led me to moddb or what I did the first time here. I know for certain that mods became a important part of my upbringing. The amount of time spent playing has varied through all these years, yet playing any kinds of videogames or mods never ceased to be one of my hobbies.
It is incredible. It is almost a entire decade ago since I joined this website. I have looked back at some of my oldest comments I ever wrote (in english.) Wow, what a annoying kid! I looked at some of my first reviews from when I had just grown enough stamina to type a whole paragraph. Such a douchebag.
I sort of feel embarassed for how I used to act, but I guess it is all okey. Because, no one on moddb knows me better than myself, but I can say that it has been quite a lot of growing mature and changes in my life in-between every site visit.
Thanks to moddb, I've had some great experiences playing all the things nobody around me played. One of my absolute favourite game series is the They Hunger Trilogy. There is more this site has given me that I cannot tell in a few sentences.
Moddb will always have a place in my heart, and I am so glad that I began spending my time here. Thanks to everyone who made moddb what it is today.
If it sounds like I'm leaving, I'm actually not. I am so looking forward to the future of Moddb. what more will there be to discover on this amazing place in another 10 years? We'll know soon enough.
