The Nostalgia Forum



Where the past still shines

What's your guy's history with Gametalk and what are you doing now? Share your experiences!
Posted: Posted July 29th, 2016 by ShadowFox08

Oh lord I'm looking at the nostalgic icons while typing this already.. heh.

Anyway, the goal of this thread is to get to know each other and see everyone's history with the site.. Perhaps we'll recognize each other's familiar faces?

1. post how and when you discovered Gametalk (whether it was the Mike Pooler days, Daniel's GT, or Xhin's site..
2. What forums you went to, and how long were you here
3. What nic you originally used(if changed)
4. Why you left
5. What are you doing with your life now and if you're posting in GT still or not
6. Do you still play games? If so, what consoles do you own?

You don't have to post these in list format. Paragraph format is fine and you can answer how many of the questions you want!


*Mods sticky this thread please!

There are 27 Replies

As for me..

I came here in December 2001, and originally came under the nic called yosouf13, and and have been a regular ever since(outside some breaks). It's amazing that I've been here for 15 years! But also scary.

I accidentally discovered this site and it was the time before I even got a gamecube, but I was reading up info on smash bros melee. I wanted to see how Mewtwo was unlocked and how he played. The first forum I went to was the Smash Bros forum and I believe my first thread was asking what does Mewtwo's Shadowball do(or how it works). I remember GT was so freaking popular back then that we actually had TWO super smash bros forums(one smash bros, the other super smash brothers.. I liked the latter).

Anyway, I had a lot of fun back then. I met some great people and I mostly hung around the smash bros forum, and the Console Wars/GCN Vs Xbox Vs Playstation. I also went to Life Forum every now and then.

I still play games but nearly as much. I go weeks without them. I've only owned Nintendo consoles in my life, because I'm not that big of a gamer to care about owning multiple current gen consoles anyway and I have mostly what I need with Nintendo consoles. I'm also having more responsibiliteis as an adult now to of course. Right now I'm working in bio industry and thinking about studying for master soon. Not married yet, but pushing 30!

1. post how and when you discovered Gametalk (whether it was the Mike Pooler days, Daniel's GT, or Xhin's site..

Searching for a digivolution guide to Digimon World back in 2001.

2. What forums you went to, and how long were you here

Started in the Digimon World forum in 2001, branched out into Jedi Sith sometime later. Was active in Digimon World until the other regs stopped showing up, was active in Jedi Sith right up until it died off on this very site.

Branched out to various parts of the site when GTX0 launched.

3. What nic you originally used(if changed)

Moonraymon (bcus Digimon), then Moonray & Redack... Then on GTX0 exclusively Redack, then swapped back to Moonray.

4. Why you left

I didn't.

5. What are you doing with your life now and if you're posting in GT still or not

For work life: IT Support at a school with roughly 1200 students. Maintain the network, the servers, the computers, etc, etc, deal with any problems people have (forgot password, computer not working, printer not working, etc, etc, etc). It's a very varied job. Some days it can be as simple as just knocking a PC off and back on another day I might be urgently rebuilding a server that died, the next I might be installed new network switches and configuring the ports for VLANs, then I might trying to figure out how the heck the biometric catering system works while the company that installed it tries to be as secretive as possible so that we have to pay them to come out! It's a very varied job and you never really know what each day will hold which makes it more fun even if it can be stressful.

Personal Life: Saving up for a flat/apartment but never anything reasonably priced in the area because, well, rich people like to retire around here and it's a beautiful area. My main hobby is of course gaming so that's what I am up to a lot of the time, but I also read (not as much as I would like these days) or go for walks up one of the many hills in the area (because as noted it is a beautiful area).

GTX0 Life: Having stepped down as an Admin I'm just hanging around, replying to posts that interest me, making posts about stuff that interests me. Occasionally do a stream in Spectator Gaming, usually when Jo asks about a game and wants to see it but sometimes just because I feel like it.

6. Do you still play games? If so, what consoles do you own?

Yes, primarily on PC but I also own a "New 3DS XL", Xbone and a Wii U. I also have emulators for some of the older consoles so I can nostalgically replay games I loved when I was younger or catch up on games I missed (like the entire Gamecube library).

I came here when I was 9 or 10. I was looking for help in Digimon world 3 and I found it. Hung out in pointless and depression a lot. The site went down and every once in a while I would check to see if it came back. Then one day it did.

I just shit post now out of boredom. Sometimes I post something meaningful when it's a topic I actually have interest in. But lately I've just been tossing out words on screen to see what kind of responses I get. (derp) more so no out of boredom as I have nothing to do.

At the moment I'm on summer break and in the fall I'll be finishing up my last year in University. I'm hoping to graduate this spring or late fall with my B.A. in History and will hopefully be studying abroad next fall in Europe or South America.

I currently play on the ps3 and ps vita.

I'm not active during the school sessions but I so check the site every few days.

Found Mike's GT in like 1999, wanting to know how to unlock Ness or whatever in Super Smash Bros for the N64. Stuck around because the people were cool and talking to people from across the globe was a novelty. Over the years I became a reg of Sonic Heroes, Middle-earth, and Harry Potter, while jumping around between a few other forums. Modded DBZ: Budokai 2 (PS2) for a while, wrote some cringey fanfic that people liked. Still remember the day GT went down, thinking "Oh, it'll be back up later tonight". At that age, checking GT was one of the first things I'd do when getting up in the morning - so it was a pretty big deal that it never came back. Found Daniel's site randomly early on (don't remember how), and then migrated over to Xhin's with pretty much everyone else.

I think my nostalgic attachment to that site is long gone, though. It's not the reason I still post here; it's because I like the personalities I've gotten to know over the past so many years.

Nowadays I'm focused on my film course, primarily looking to get into sound design. Still play games (PC mostly), although nowhere near as much as I'd probably like to.

6. Do you still play games? If so, what consoles do you own?

1. I don't remember. It was during my Freshman year.

2. Jedi Sith and RPG Chat, mainly.

3. I had many names but for RPG Chat it was Princess Cacila Elf and for Jedi Sith: Princess Padme/Nyatha Non.

4. I left to get my life back together and then came back in 2014. I don't post around GT as much as I'd like to anymore.

5. I'm a part-time student at my community college and I work part-time at the Bake Shop. Gaming isn't my main hobby since not a lot of games really interest me. Writing's my main hobby now since I'm trying to write my novel. Finding an agent is going to be tough. I don't want to settle for anything less (Like, just selling my book as an eBook), which is what writers tend to do nowadays. Like I said above, I post less because I have lost interest in GT (now that I have a dog, etc) but I check in to see how everybody is doing.

6. I still play games but not regularly. I'm actually trying to cut down on my console systems because I've been disappointed in a few games and don't want to waste anymore money. I currently own a Wii U and a PS4 and a Vita. May keep my "New" Nintendo 3DS but I'm thinking about it. I don't want my life centered around games. I want to be active (if I can be haha).

1. mike pooler days for a brief time forever ago. A while later (2003 maybe?), I was hanging with friends on the GameFAQs Pokémon boards and someone was like "lol look at this dumb topic" and linked to something on GT. So I showed up to troll a bit, then decided to actually stick around. Became mod, was a regular until it died.

2. mainly Pokémon Gold/Silver, Crystal, and RBY, Smash Bros, and Animal Crossing: Wild World

3. this is the only real name I've used, aside from a couple joke names and "not logging in because I'm not home" variations. Also an impersonation or two from the early days :J

4. didn't; the site died so I hung around with some GT friends on our offsite hangout, eventually GTx0 appeared and we decided to check it out

5. my sacred duty is to maintain a base level of kawaii on this webspace

6. yeah, pretty much everything but an XB1 because I have zero desire to own one

1. post how and when you discovered Gametalk (whether it was the Mike Pooler days, Daniel's GT, or Xhin's site..

From 2003-2004 I was a reg at the Dragonball forum. I skipped Daniel's forum, and went straight from Gametalk to gtx0.

SSJ Sephiroth and OWA.

4. Why you left

I was too busy playing online games to care about a forum.

1. Mike Pooler days, was looking for tips and exploits for Knights of the Old Republic and later SHenmue 2. Kept bringing me to GT so I got familiar with and fond of the place


2. I started int he KOTOR and Shenmue 2 boards before my fr iend who I invited to the boards convinced me to head to the Anime boards where I met someone I'll never forget and who I'll probably miss for the rest of my days. went to Pointless and started hanging out there got a solid group of friends, than eventually came ot Jedi Sith but left because of bullying until Dark Mistress (one of the mods at the time) posted in one of my threads in Pointless and talked me in to coming back. SPent several years mostly hanging in Jedi Sith and later made my way to the Inuyasha: A Feudal Fairy Tale boards which had a nice little close knit community of its own that I worked my way in to.


4. Because the site went down and Mike had pretty much abandoned it.


5. Part time Day Janitor at a grocery store


6. Xbox 360 and a decent gaming PC mainly.

Made some really good friends with users of the Brawl forum (Hindenburg, Speed Bike Pro, Pirate_Ninja, MSS etc..) and still talk to some of them every single day for the last 8 years.

I saw a picture of an eagle beside my parents desk and just put a 0 after it, so my name became eagle0.

1) June 2006, though I'm 90% sure I found a forum in a Google Search a year or so before that and passed it by. I'm pretty sure I discovered it in a Google Search, though not sure how. Just stumbled upon it really.

2, 3, 4) Good god - what forums..I started on Pokemon/Pokemon Games/Depression as Weird Occurance, Articuno Lover, and Mew Ruler. Later made my way over to depression as Yuki Eiri, Naruto Next Hokage, and several other names I doubt anyone remembers. I was around frequently enough through 2008 or 2009. I think my activity here slowed down a ton in 2010 thanks to a relationship I was in and the start of college.

5) I graduated college in 2014 with a Computer Science & Philosophy double major. I moved out of my parents' house a month later (they were moving to another state and I didn't want to go, so I got my own place :D) I went through several short-time jobs before getting my current position. I now work in NYC in a technology/finance position. Between that, my social life, my relationship, video games, and trying to make sure I don't lose too much sleep, I don't really find much time to get on here anymore, though I do occasionally lurk and post. I've been on and off the Nostalgia, Life, Pokemon, and Health forums.

6) Of course I still game :D The boyfriend and I just bought a new gaming laptop three months ago just for it. I'm also still very much into Pokemon - so I got my 3DS, of course. I still have all my old consoles and I tend to rotate them out pretty frequently - GameCube, N64, Super Nintendo, PS1, Xbox 360.

1) I think I found it when I used Google or Yahoo to look for help with some video game. I can't remember which one it was, though. Anyway, this was way back when Mike was still running it. I think it was 1998 or 1999?

2) I mostly stuck to the Axem Forum and the Dragon Warrior III forum. Might have visited a few others, though I don't remember.

3) Axem Great Water.
EDIT: I think I used QWERTYUIOASD, or something, for a few months, before finding the Axem Forum.

4) The site went down.

5) Getting my Accounting degree. I mostly just hang out in the Axem Forum, and see if anyone posts anything.

6) Not as much as I used to. I spend most of my time reading. Aside from that, I usually just play my old Gameboy Color, SNES, and PS2 games, though I have a few Xbox 360 games, and some stuff from Steam.

1. Remember very vaguely going into a gametalk as a kid and asking where I could go to get help with games like tips/guides etc. Some employee told me about the site and the rest is history. This site is the reason I am who I am and why I am where I am in life atm. Crazy to think like that!

2. Mostly a pointless scrub though I did the rpgchat for a bit too. Followed my friends to other subs like stranger and others I don't remember but pointless was my home. Joined I want to say like early 2000s- '03 maybe? that sounds about right.

3. Only ones I remember are AngelofSapphire and Tohru-HondaChan or something. Lol I had a bunch though.

4. GT Left me one day and just like that it was a wrap

5. Graduated college, moved across the country and now a full time employee in an office desk job. Living the dream..../sarcasm and no I don't post on GT. Or I guess I do, wait.

6. I play a lot of games but nothing ever sticks like it did before. Games just aren't the same quality or maybe I just realized I've changed. I dunno, maybe a bit of both...

1. post how and when you discovered Gametalk (whether it was the Mike Pooler days, Daniel's GT, or Xhin's site..

It was around 2000-2001 when I first found out about GT. I was probably searching for Pokemon Advice back then. Maybe Smash.

2. What forums you went to, and how long were you here

I posted a little in Silver/Gold/Crystal, migrated to Paper Mario where I met a good bit of friends. Axem craze started there before becoming its own forum. I used to go to the Console Wars forum a bit, but I was really young and a typical Nintendo fanboy who was triggered by the relentlessness of ?huh?, so I didn't last long.

3. What nic you originally used(if changed)

I guess jjkk or AND'J.. AXEM_METAL quickly became my official tag after a few nonsensical ones

4. Why you left

I guess I grew bored. *shrug* I was a teenager with typical teenager desires and experiences for a minute.

5. What are you doing with your life now and if you're posting in GT still or not

PM Assistant for a construction company. I rarely go out anywhere or see older friends, so it's a weird point in life where I actually feel old. I post whenever something catches my eye and isn't political. I've decides to lurk those and judge silently instead.

6. Do you still play games? If so, what consoles do you own?

Overwatch is the new bae. Other than that, I just play whatever I come across. Own all current gen plus PC, 3DS. I mostly play on PC.

I originally found gametalk back on June 16, 2003 on a google search for Mario party 5. I was interested in finding out which mini games that were going to be in the game and how to play them. Of course it was too early then for anyone to know, but I stumbled upon this site and found it to be a nice place to chat on. I then migrated to the melee forum and realized I was way behind in the game on unlocking stages and trophies, so I worked really hard on those, and within a year I unlocked everything. I still play smash bros to this day (on the wiiu and 3ds) and was way into brawl back in 2008 when it came out and I even suggested that they play brawl's music at my high acchool's prom that year. And just like you shadowfoz08, I am a Nintendo fanboy and only own those consoles and handhelds.


Shadowfox08 and chain chomp, can you please respond to my thread in pointless calling for your attention?

1. post how and when you discovered Gametalk (whether it was the Mike Pooler days, Daniel's GT, or Xhin's site..

It was probably around 2000.

2. What forums you went to, and how long were you here

I was there for a few years. I used to Mod the Breath of Fire 3 forum. I frequented pointless a lot too I believe as well as rpg and some others. I was the guy that came up with the trick of using the ascii code to be able to post as anybody. It caused a great mess and the admins actually had to restrict the allowed characters in a name. You might not remember me.. but there's a good chance you remember that fiasco.

3. What nic you originally used(if changed)

I believe it was either this or Syko2300 I don't believe I ever used my nic that became my default goto: Vember.

4. Why you left

Grew bored like others and moved on.

5. What are you doing with your life now and if you're posting in GT still or not

I haven't been posting no.. this is my first in probably over a decade. I am currently in a rough situation in life trying to navigate my way through.

6. Do you still play games? If so, what consoles do you own?

I own no consoles at the moment but I do play some pc games.

1. post how and when you discovered Gametalk (whether it was the Mike Pooler days, Daniel's GT, or Xhin's site..

I was actually a frequent forumgoer at Nick.com's gaming message boards. They had moderators, and the mods had to approve each and every single post, so the system was not instantaneous. But this was back at the turn of the millennium: the thought that there actually is a message board for kids on the internet was a wild concept in and of itself.

Then, someone on those forums private messaged me and referred me to Gametalk.com. They told me it was a gaming site that they thought I might like. Nick's system was posts that were old got deleted forever, so I don't know who that person was and I'll never find out. But I didn't stumble across the site searching on Google, I was personally referred.

2. What forums you went to, and how long were you here

Back in those days I frequented the Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door forum and the GCN Vs. Xbox Vs. PS2 forum. I loved the general gaming forum the most.

3. What nic you originally used(if changed)

Originally I wanted to call myself Marioman, but that name was taken. Then Marioguy was taken as well. So I added the M in-between to snag the name: Mariomguy.

4. Why you left

Uh, you know how it was!

5. What are you doing with your life now and if you're posting in GT still or not

Well, right now I'm a graphics technician working for a good international business that makes computer systems for golf carts. If you go to a golf course and see these boxes on the top near the roof, that's our company. And while I joined late, if you go to the newer courses you'll find a welcome screen: a composition featuring an image of the course and their logo. I made all of the new ones in the western hemisphere (we have a satellite branch handling Europe and the far East).

6. Do you still play games? If so, what consoles do you own?

Not as much as I'd like to. Hardly at all nowadays :(

But I own every Nintendo console except the two most people love: the first NES and the SNES. My SNES broke down and I was eager to use that as an excuse to get an N64, so we tossed it pretty quickly. I also have a PS3 (Little Big Planet, Ratchet and Clank, Flower, nowadays it's just a blu-ray player).

I also have an awesome gaming PC: i7-3770 4.1 Ghz, GTX 960, 12 GB RAM. I did PC game for a while when I was in college and right after. I don't want to say I lost my passion for gaming, but that whole joy about taking a console to a friend's house to play is over now. If I game at all, the most I'll do is Smash Bros. with some people here online. All my friends are in other states, so we can't local multiplayer anymore, and my best college friends have jobs/are married (they're much older than I am)/don't play anymore. One of my friends loves Fallout, but from what I understand that's not multiplayer.

I learned how to make games inside of professional game engines and 3D software, so while in the past I loved tinkering with builder games UE4 has kind of sucked the fun out of it. Making games is HARD, and a long painstaking process that really should be done by a team of at least 7 people: not just one person trying to figure out everything. If I play a game now it will probably have to be something like Mario or Smash Bros. Nothing too lengthy, perhaps why I'm weary of even getting the new Zelda game (previously I would be all for it). The only real time I have is weekends.

1. post how and when you discovered Gametalk (whether it was the Mike Pooler days, Daniel's GT, or Xhin's site..

So I discovered the Mike's GameTalk in 2003 while perusing for tips on LoZ: Wind Waker. I remember finding it on a random google search and replied to someone asking for help on a really easy topic, so ofcourse I made some kind of snarky comment about how he should find a strategy guide. A couple days later I remembered making the comment and wanted to see if he has said anything, so I came back and he said something about how it wasn't in the strategy guides he read. So i looked it up and sure enough it wasn't in there. I decided to help him out and then I made my way to the boxcube forum.

2. What forums you went to, and how long were you here

Mostly the boxcube forum. But I posted in the Zelda and Halo one's as well.

3. What nic you originally used(if changed)

Always used SnakeVenom. Now Q.

4. Why you left

Well, I never left by choice. When I joined the Army in 2007, I was unable to post regularly until summer of 2008 with all the training i was doing. Then there would be periods of time where I would be so busy I wouldn't have time to post.

5. What are you doing with your life now and if you're posting in GT still or not.

Married and working IT at an Electrical Company full-time, Going to college full-time and doing the national guard.

6. Do you still play games?

In between classes and if/when i get sparetime that's not filled with homework.

Mostly been playing Halo and Skyrim SE on X1. But since I have gotten Breath of the Wild on Wii U that's pretty much all I have been playing.

If so, what consoles do you own?

NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, Wii, Wii U, GameBoy, GameBoy Color, GB Advance, GB Advance SP, GB Advance Micro, DS Lite, 3DS, 3DS XL, Sega Genesis, 32X, Sega CD, Saturn, Dreamcast, PS1, PS2, PS3 fat, PS3 Slim, PS3 super slim, PS4, PSP, XBOX, XBOX360 Elite, XBOX360 S, and XBOX ONE.

1. post how and when you discovered Gametalk (whether it was the Mike Pooler days, Daniel's GT, or Xhin's site..)

It was some time in the 2004 area, I think. I know it was during Mike's time, because his name came up every time something came crashing down. My brother and I came here with a question about Morrowind (don't remember what it was), and had a grand time chatting with folks on the Morrowind forum (at some point a bunch of us took turns writing a big story, which I still have on my computer somewhere). My bookmark still links me to the Elderscrolls forum, even though it's not on those top links anymore.

2. What forums you went to, and how long were you here

Well, I spent most of my time on the Morrowind forum, and then started looking at other ones - mostly Pointless, but sometimes posting in Art or Depression (if I had something I thought was helpful to say). I'm wanting to say that I visited the site regularly until it went down. Then I'd look for it every three months or so. Now I come back for spurts every couple of months, but often don't bother posting.

3. What nic you originally used(if changed)

I mostly went by TroshLirgg, though on Pointless I used Finrod Felagund.

4. Why you left

The site kinda disappeared...

5. What are you doing with your life now and if you're posting in GT still or not

Well, nowadays I'm married to a lovely lady, graduated college with a degree in Technology and Applied Design, and am working building cheap wooden furniture, because apparently there's a market for it. I'm working on getting myself set up to make much nicer hardwood furniture, but it's hard to run a wood shop out of an apartment. So right now I'm learning as much as I can about running a small business.

I think I answered the other question earlier - I post here on occasion, and lurk more often.

6. Do you still play games? If so, what consoles do you own?

I do still play games, though less frequently as I'm making a solid effort of being a responsible adult. I am and have always been a PC gamer.

I was me, except when I wasn't.

I got into the game industry, and then I stopped.

I ran into Threnody awhile back, he was doing fine. That was a few years now.

Life is life.
