The way I see the history:

- DailyRadar/GamesRadar is advertised in N64 and NGC as their forum (and presumably some other Future magazines)
- Gamesradar rebrands and detaches itself from any specific magazine(s), at the same time creating the US forum that we 'invaded'
- Eventually they give up on the now vestigial Gamesradar UK forum
- GRcade arose and we all migrated over before the GRUK forum was destroyed

Therefore, you can trace a line from N64 magazine to this forum. Your take on it, Balladeer, quite clearly makes you guys the descendants of NGamer, which is much less cool.

I'm just picturing OR as a Necromancer, keeping SONM going through the application of Dark Energies while at the same time conspiring to sell your souls to GRcade. :twisted:

The only reason ONM was cool at all was because ex-NGamer staffer Matthew Castle took it over at the end. :P

In all seriousness, I couldn't get on with ONM, although I preferred it to NOM. (lobs molotov, runs)

The only trolling going on in this thread is this:

(Although in all seriousness, each to their own. I just didn't like their writing style, at all. The few issues I read, which may or may not have been representative, tried so achingly hard to appeal to 'da yoof'. But if you liked it then good onya! They're all dead now in any case.)

I mean, as I was THE YOOF at the time, maybe I have a warped perspective on it. ;P

I'm disappointed that "da yoof" don't have a Nintendo magazine to read anymore.

I'm not saying it, so I can't be perceived as the smug one. :mrgreen:

True dat. I read Switch Player, but it's just not the same. :(

Sorry for DoPoing, but this seems the best place to plug the GNamer quarterly blog, Admintendo! Basically a podcast about the last quarter, only typed out. I bring it up not purely as a plug, but also because GRcade and a couple of the GRcadians who have made their way over their get shout-outs in this one. Hope (some of) you enjoy reading!

If you look hard enough/far enough back I think he had an account here once too. I'm sure a few of the I'm the Best leaderboard posted on GR one time or another.

Oh god the nostalgia. :wub:


Drumstick and, I believe, Parkreiner among others were featured in N64 and NGC’s Skill Club and I’m The Best.
