Will you plan on staying into old age? Assuming you're not old already. By old age I mean 35-40. I assume 70 year olds don't care about video games anymore.


I personally can see myself returning here when I'm 35 or 40 just to see what's going on. Especially if most of the people I recognise are still here also. And if GTA is still able to move me to a childlike excitement and wonder in the way it has done for 15 years.


When you joined was it just to troll? Planned on being a permanent member, or was it just a temporary thing?

I'll be staying until I get a life (so probably forever).

When I originally joined I didn't plan to stay for this long, no.

I have actually been thinking about this.



Right now I don't see any reason to leave, but I will probably forget this place in some years.



I'm pretty sure that I will return one day though.

Preteens are unlearned and yet know it all.
Up to 40 are Players passing time until they get old.
30 to 40 are people to not trust.
40 to 55 are old people finishing their lives.
Over 55 are people who have ceased to be necessary (relevant), and should 'step aside' to make room for the 'younger generations'.

Playing Games is a 'Pass time' until something more important comes along.
Playing games is now what watching TV was, after listening to the radio was, after socials and reading books, watching plays, listening to the band stands on Sunday, Croquet, bat mitten, horse shoes, et cetera. All being just something to do.
You work, you eat, you play, you sleep. The Wheel of Time turns.
I planed on watching (100+) of tapes.
I planed on listening to (100+) of records (yah, 33 1/3 vynal).
I planed on reading (100+) of books.
I planed on Kreigspeiling (100+) of games. (Avalon Hill, TSR, etc. But friends die or move away.)
I didn't plan on having Internet, which has pushed the others aside.

I joined this site looking for game play answers.
So here I am still on the site. And, I expect to be here until something else occurs.

It goes in cycles for me. When IV came out I registered and posted a lot, then I went inactive until V was announced. I actually have another account from '05 but I made a new one when IV was out.


Anyway there were some differences I saw this time. One, there's way more people on the forum and much more are going to stay for longer. That makes sense, since R* plans to make gta:o last a long time. So I guess that's good for forum longevity.  And second, I ventured outside the game forums and started to post in other areas, like sports, vehicles and a little off topic. But personally, I've been losing interest with gtaf. Some of the subforums are just so f*cking dead and I wonder why I post there in the first place since I already go to other forums/sites that cater to those interests. And I quit playing V a week ago and have it up on craigslist, so the V forums themselves have no purpose for me aside from trolling and making spam posts. But if I did leave, I'm sure I'll be back when VI is here.

Well all he does is spam.. so I applaud him for coming to the realization that his presence here does bother some people with his constant narcissism and lying.

when i looked up GTA stuff on Google i always ended up in GTAF, for years. and i always encountered some really informative stuff in here in my lurking days. i think it was to ask some question about something when i finally signed up. i will play GTA until i die so until i find a better GTA community i think i'm not going to quit.

I'm already extremely old haha, but I have no intention of leaving this place anytime soon. I might not post as much as I used to, but I'll stick around until I lose all interest in everything that goes on around here.

I initially only joined because I had nothing to do at work one day, and I found these forums while googling for news about GTAV (which btw, i haven't even played yet. Definitely didn't expect to wait this long). Been here since.

I've tried other gaming forums in the past but none of them kept me interested to stay for longer than a week or so, so I guess that says something about you lot and this place...

who plans their time on a forum?


I'll be here while there's sh*t to do.

if we run out of sh*t to do, I'll probably stop coming around.


same goes for anywhere else.

No. I intend to leave eventually. Some day... :sigh: I know there are much more interesting places I could spend my time browsing, and GTA and general chat don't really do much for me anymore.


I joined because I had just discovered what a forum was that week, and I just had to sign up for every discussion forum for anything I was interested in. This one, and one for pokémon that I check back on every year or so are the only ones I've actually continued using out of the ten or so I signed up for.

Hmm ... well, the longest I've been on a forum before this was 4 years, so, maybe. If I hang around here for 4 years, that would make me 25/26.

But I don't spend as much time online as I used to anyway, and if my career takes off as I intend it to, then mu free time will be more limited than it already is. I'm not what you'd call a regular as it is, really.

My free time is restricted anyway, due to work commitments so it's only rarely I visit any sort of forum. So who knows? Let's see what life has in line.....

By old age I mean 35-40.

What? :(

As long as the general population here isn't 100% assbags, I'll keep dragging my middle aged ass here.

I'm here since 2003, as a guest, registered in 2005, got away until 2007 and registered a new account because I forgot the old one... got that acc banned last year, created a few more that got banned too, found my 2005 account, changed my nickname, searched my old posts from 2005, got into a nostalgia trip from my 13s, and got banned. That was heartbreaking but here I am again. I guess I'll stay as long as the mods let me.
