About a year ago I joined VCCM on PS3 (as Sabrotage) and I instantly felt very welcome and at home in this crew. I loved playing the game and felt lucky to find myself in a community full of mature and fun players. At the time I didn’t know that the game or the crew would have such an impact on my life.
After joining I met a bunch of great people including @King Duncan who at the time was KiddKash. Over the last year he has become my very best friend in the world. It’s no secret that we’re often partners in crime in the game but we also became super close in “real life”. I was extremely fortunate to get the opportunity to fly across the country (From Maine to California, literally across the whole country haha) to meet him last week. We hung out in the real world Los Santos of LA and had a blast.
The whole thing made me think about how insanely lucky I was to happen upon this crew in a promotional subreddit and to become a part of this group. We may have different play styles or preferences, I may not always make it to events, but this crew has given me several amazing and lasting friendships and provided a very necessary escape for me from real world drama and tragedy. GTA is just a video game but this crew is a family in it’s own way and I just wanted to make a mushy post to let you all know how grateful I am that I found it, all of you, and my best friend. Thanks for being an awesome crew. :]
