In twenty two days this forums is closing its doors. After close to two decades worth of operation, countless tournaments, events, gatherings, sessions, new game launches, old game revivals, money matches, west coast / east coast rivalry, national rivalry, global rivalry, we have really seen it all. I've been here for FIFTEEN GOD DAMN YEARS, and I've been a pain in the ass at some points, and haven't really been around all that much recently but god damn did I ever love my time here. The people I met here, friends I made, and so much more was all worth it signing up for it with this stupid handle people STILL call me by even now. Entire communities have had their start here from just one thread in Fighting Game Discussion, and many of the big names sitting pretty with a 3 lettered abbreviation behind their name were once just as much of a part of these stomping grounds as much as the rest of us.
So I'm making this thread to give everyone that chance to remember all the wonderful times and people that came from this place. Reach in there and grab that wonderful memory and give it a big fat bear hug. Good or bad, throw it on the table and enjoy it, our time is almost up!
