    *cue the violins*

    This is awesome @NikkieVercetti ! I feel the exact same. This crew is amazing and all the people in it. It's weird how the smallest decisions in your life can turn out to have the biggest impact. I joined VCCM not even looking for crew. But I was invited after randomly impressing @Kennie22 by landing a plane on a mountain.

    *increase violin emotion*

    I loved the crew so much that I began to get more involved, eventually helping Kennie run the PS3 side and I have no regrets whatsoever. It was an amazing experience and it ultimately led me to meeting @NikkieVercetti . If I wasn't a part of the crew, I probably would not have been playing GTA for as long as I have, honestly. And I wouldn't have met my best friend. This is all thanks to Rockstar, the founders of VCCM, and @Kennie22 . So I have a certain level of respect for the crew because of this reason (amongst others). So thanks guys for making VCCM all that it is. So proud to see it grow in the beginning stages. Long live Vice City Crime Mob and Vice Gamers. Cheers, everyone. :)

    Wow guys, i'm very happy to see that some little club I started on the xbox 360 while hung over in my campus apartment has grown so much and had an impact on lives to this degree lol.

    It really does blow my mind at how many things have come out of VCCM and how fast we are growing. I've seen a lot of people attempt to create what we have and fail miserably and honestly, I thought I would fail too. So i'm so glad to see that it is indeed still succeeding and how many lives it impacts. No matter how much.

    I remember that like it was yesterday hahah. Good times. It was on the mountains just north of the lighthouse, on the mountain side facing the freeway. We mocked about on Mt. Chilliad afterwards... good times.


    My utmost pleasure man, it's been a blast so far :D


    EDIT: When I read the headline of the thread I thought it was about one of you guys leaving, talk about the exact opposite.

    Well that's cool. People think of gaming as an unsocial thing that creates unsociable people, which it's the exact opposite.

    I got into a Starcraft 2 clan at one point, clan xN. What an awesome group. Very close and played literally every night for hours, just practicing the game and getting better and helping each other out, in more ways than just with the game. I helped influence someone to go to college. He told me the only reason why he went to college was because I convinced him that it was a good idea. We helped members of the clan go to MLG's or other events. It was great. Unfortunately, it just fell apart. The site was taken down, and the awesome times we had would always be in the past. I really hope for the best for this group, and hope it doesn't fall apart. It's a difficult thing to keep a community up and running. Not just with money, but with time invested in people.

    I hate it when people mock gamers or people with media related hobbies as anti-social. I'm plenty social, just in a less conventional way that works best for my personality. Other than games I'm in several television show fandoms and I've been active in those for years even after some of the shows have ended because the people I met were friends with me beyond our mutual interest. And it's awesome because GTA is an ongoing series that will not be ending anytime soon. I think this community has the potential to be around for a long time.

    That story is great, proof that you can influence someone's life in a very real and positive way no matter where you've met. Have definitely experienced that myself here. [:

    oh, my, that photo is awesome, those smiles too!. I'm so glad of reading this on a Monday.

    I've been part of some online communities for some time now.
    Some 50 or more people that by now know each other IRL and have had amazing times discussing almost any topic and it's been 15 years already.
    I've known fantastic people from online encounters and I laugh at them when somebody, friends or family, puts a face when I talk about "those people on the internet".

    There are more cars featured in the "Next-Next Gen" picture on the bottom. I can't wait to play that version!

    Yeah, they're great! Gore is a little too realistic in this update though.

    Yeah, and the new pain mechanics are so real! It's like I am literally being hit with a golf club. It even takes weeks to heal! Talk about immersive gameplay.
