How long have you been an ally?



  • Found gametrailers the year it started 2002 i think, cause I needed a place for trailers and wasn't a fan of gamespot and ign (gamesages.com back in the day). Around 07 or 08 I went to the gt forums lots and did a bunch of signature banners for people and myself.



  • Wow, it's really been a long time. I had a Gametrailers account (blank26) from 2006 I believe. I remember watching the reveal trailer of Killzone 2 after E3, when everybody was freaking out on whether it was CG or in game footage.

    Loved Invisible Walls. Loved all of Gametrailers coverage, even back in the Shane Satterfield days.

    So glad that the Allies are going strong and proud to be part of the Patreon!



  • Since like 2005-6. I was 11-12 back then, time flies man.



  • I actually started watching EZA once they became Easy Allies. I was slightly familiar with Brandon and Kyle from previous videos I had seen them in. When Brandon appeared on Kinda Funny's podcast and announced that they were going the independent Patreon route I was really intrigued.

    Since then I have come to appreciate and respect all of the allies. All of them provide something great and interesting and as a group their dynamic just works.

    TL;DR - I came to EZA for Brandon & Kyle. I stayed for Ian's cynicism, Huber's hype, Damiani's prolific gamer insight, and much more.



  • I started going to Gametrailers in 2006, but it was the Final Fantasy Retrospective that got me to create an account. I spent a lot of time in the forums, mainly one particular Metal faction. In that faction I met a lot of great people that turned into friends. After the factions got shut down we (about 20 of us) started a chat on facebook and we still talk to this day.



  • Been watching GT reviews since Assassin's Creed. I had been reading reviews up to that point, but I really valued that the video review could show me particular issues in a game whenever the reviewer brought them up. Never got into the rest of GT's offerings until The Final Bosman started. I've tried listening to other gaming podcasts, but never enjoyed them, until EZA. You guys bring the hype and that's what we need right now.

    I've been been going to Gametrailers since 2006. What brought me there in the first place was the Zelda Retrospective. A friend showed me the video and I stuck around the website. Looked at partically all the videos. Plus when Screwattack joined them for a bit I frequented the website even more. Since I was an active community member on the Screwattack forums at that time. I loved Screwattack as much as I love Gametrailers. Sadly I did not stick with Screwattack after they parted with Gametrailers. That was however when I stuck around Gametrailers. I even tried to sign up to their forums but man it was a jungle in there. The minute you posted a new topic it got buried. I only checked out the forums a couple of times but never returned. I stuck to mainly watching the videos and occassionally posting a comment. Before their Viacom days came to an end. Thats when I started to get familiar with the GT staff other than the voice of GT Brandon Jones. I loved such shows as "Thanks for Playing" as it featured the GT staff talking about various games. Also that was when I started watching "Final Bosman" who I though was a goober at first but he ended up being hilirious. I also tuned in for "Pach Attack". After the Viacom days I stuck around and watch every Twitch stream they did if I was able to. From there I entered one of the best video game communitys out there. I'm a fan for life thanks for hearing this guy sing the praises of one of my favorite websites as it continues its run as something new.



  • I heard about GT going out of business. Then I heard about them opening up a new channel and I've been a viewer ever since, I just love how they are not negative, other channels are always making fun of and being negative about certain things like game taste.



  • It was in 2004 (12 years old) when I would check the site frequently.

    24 now, and still can't get over great they became. Proud Patron!



  • I'd donate to them if I could, but unfortunately I cannot. I will not consider myself a full "ally" until then. Though the ad revenue from me watching, and liking all their videos could equal an adequate sum of cash. Dunno.

    Still, I've been with these guys for a long time. One day either in 2010 or 2011 I downloaded the GT app on my PS3, and was immediately sucked into it. I've seen them around before that, but have never acted upon that interest until that day. I've been with them ever since.



  • This post is deleted!


  • Well, I don't remember when I had found GT, but I do remember that I became a member sometime in 2007 when I saw how awesome the community was. Been following the members for the most part ever since.



  • I was always a vague on again off again follower of gametrailers, but it wasn't until EZA that I started following the guys religiously.



  • I'd say I started coming to the site around 2010 just for trailers and the occasional show/E3 coverage. Probably around 2012 or 2013 I started really watching their shows. Been with them ever since and am a Patron for Easy Allies!



  • I started going to GT in like late 2006-early 2007 I think. I followed everything on there religiously until about mid-2013. Then some RL stuff had to be taken care of, came back about a year later. EZA patron since day one 3.21. :-)



  • I used to be troll/meme trash on GT back from 2007 - 2011. I currently post a lot on the IGN forums, and to some degree on NeoGAF, but I'll be posting here as well.



  • I caught them late, right before their move to defy. Started out watching the trailers and reviews then one day watched an episode of the final bosman. Became immediatley hooked after that, started binge watching as much content as I could find.



  • I first visited GameTrailers around 2007-8 ish. I mainly just stuck to the trailers and a few Screw Attack things but would visit occasionally.

    Then I became a full-time ally last year during the E3 coverage, and quickly got myself up to speed with past shows and successes.

    EZA, is honestly the best gaming channel around without a doubt.



  • I was a regular member and frequent poster of the GT forums since 2005.



  • I've been following/lurking/watching GT since 2005 :D
