What lead you to this site?

From the other forums? Were you looking for cheats, walkthroughs? Videos? Were you searching for porn? Or your fat fiance told you about this place?

I was surfing YT for IV videos and the uploader apparently had an account here and the surrounding V hype lead me to join gtaforums.

I wanted to talk about GTA, but there wasn't an official forums from R* so I Googled and here I arrived.

Dan Houser told me of this wonderful place where people appreciate his and R*'s games with such adoring warmth and constructive feedback, and provided me an address to this joint.

I joined a mobile forum some time in 2007, mainly because I wanted to talk with people about GTA IV (I was super hyped back then). That was when I found out what forums were. In late 2007 I started wondering whether there was an official forum for GTA games, or maybe I wanted to find a forum specifically about this series, and I must have googled something like "gta forum" and this was the first result.

In March this year (that's 2013 if you're reading this in 2014), I just googled for some new info on GTAV and GTAForums was one of the first results. I think we can all agree that I'm the best thing that's ever happened to this place.

I googled that and ended up in Windows Phone Central forum and Diabetes forums.


The third one was WoW forums though, that's a winner.

How did you find GTAForums?

I found this site through GTAGarage


How did you find GTAGarage?

I was looking for GTA SA PC Modifications


Why did you sign up?

Because you have to be a GTANet member to use the search feature at GTAGarage :lol:

I remember looking at the GTAV.net website now and then, and I had a look at the forum.

I lurked for a few months and then I eventually made an account cos I wanted to join in on all the banter.

The banter had stopped. No lulz were remaining.

I was searching random stuff one day and stumbled upon the animals and children thread in the V section. Read almost all of the 50 pages it had. The debates were almost sophisticated.


Been here ever since.

Found and joined the forum through Google in 2008 to ask a really noob question about whether we could call the numbers on the banners for 'apartments to rent' on GTA IV. Forgot about it all after that, then joined again in 2011 after just randomly thinking about GTA again and searching for any news on GTA V once again through Google. Completely forgot I had even made the 2008 account until I got an email through the board settings. Haven't looked back since!

Knew this site a while back like 2003, but never bother to join, until 7 years later.

I was looking for a new group of players to do police roleplaying on GTA IV before V was released cause the people I used to play with were annoying and immature. Did a Google search and GTAForums was the first website that popped up. Still no luck on roleplaying groups, but I've met a lot of cool people to play with on here.

I was maybe 12-13 years old, and I was googling walkthroughs for San Andreas because I was absolutely terrible at that game and needed any and all help the Internet could give me. I stalked the place for a year or two, and then I joined in '07.

I actually discovered the site a year or two back when I was looking for mods for SA and IV. At the time, I was very naive and had not a clue this was a legitimate forum.


A couple years later, I try to look for some places on the internet to have a good discussion about Grand Theft Auto, and I happen to come across this site once again. At the time, the V forum had some interesting subjects and I would've loved to talk to others about it. Not to mention there was a fanart section. I had a few drawings of Grand Theft Auto I would've liked to show people.

I was looking for something to do with San Andreas. Stumbled upon this found some interesting topics so I signed up. I was 11 at that time. I have a good memory so I can clearly remember that day. Saturday, July 7th 2012, 4: PM in the evening. I was under the account 'Master of San Andreas' until I created this one.

I became addicted to this site after a San Andreas Who Am I frenzy with Flynny who was then known as NateShaw92.

We ended up first and second on the leaderboard over a matter of hours.


But I can't remember how I came across this site in the first place. I remember looking around here when GTA4 came out (I must've been 11 or 12) but I don't remember ever making an account that I know of.


{edit} Just checked and yes, to this day we are still first and second http://gtaforums.com...93364-who-am-i/

keep in mind this was about 2 years ago.

I know a guy who knows a guy.

And a google search about gta V led me here. I had to register to search and I ended up spending way too much time here.

Looking for stuff about GTA III Vice City and San Andreas I stumbled across here a few times for cheats and stuff. One day I decided I wanted to tell someone about something I found in San Andreas, I knew the forum was here so I made a topic and lil weasel replied.

It's been deleted now with the new update.
