So 2010 is here, and we realised we've been covering gaming news in Australia and around the world for over ten years now! We're pretty proud to have hit that milestone; there's not a lot of home-grown Australian gaming websites that are still around after this long.

We've been here watching the ebb and flow of the gaming scene over the last decade, and done our best to make sure Australians had the latest information about the greatest games - and other interesting things. In that time we've had literally millions of visitors, we've churned out up to thirty terabytes of data every month as we make sure everyone can get the latest files as soon as possible, and we've tried to make sure gamers know The Truth about the latest games to hit the scene through our comprehensive review process.

We'll have more celebrations and self-congratulatory announcements later in the year while we plan a more formal tenth birthday online shindig - but in the meantime we'd like to thank everyone that visits AusGamers.com for their continued support, especially the forum crowd and old school QGL members, who still make up the core of the community.

For those interested taking a stroll down memory lane, we've whipped up a list of some of the biggest news stories that we've covered from the last 10 years. Check out this blast from the past as we reminisce about such stories as the growth of Counter-Strike, the release of the Xbox and then the next generation consoles, the release of Diablo 2 and much, much more.

Someone should find a list of threads to do with major news events, other than games. You know things that totally shook the world like the chk chk boom girl or the turd in the ice cream.

edit: oh theres some of those in there too

Reading the 9/11 thread.

It's hilarious that people cared more about their own similarly themed thread's destruction than that of the WTCs.

Man, I can remember when Ausgamers reported on Myst selling 1,000,000 copies (or was it 10,000,000). And in this we have 100,000,000 for a title.

And R18+ in Australia. 8 years on, we're still fighting it.

Well done chaps! Keep up the good work. I started coming here probs 4-5 years ago just using it as a file mirror instead of gamershell.com - now look at me! I signed up for the forum when I was bored at work one day :-)))

Haha holy f*****g s***, reading that 9/11 thread is so cringe-worthy:



Bowen - Nostradamus is a great phlosfer.... don't nock him!! ok he got ww1 and ww2 right as well as the plague ect ect

Yeti Skinner - The scariest part of this whole incident is that there is a book written about 5 years ago where all of this happened!

ME! - man... WW3 = Nuclear War = Holocaust = Any survivors take on a Fallout-type role for the rest of existance.

Chrispy - I hate towle heads
I hate towle heads
I hate towle heads
I hate towle heads
Up em bussy tear em a new one


Man, all the memories of the mass hysteria come flowing back. This is a f*****g crazy and harrowing trip down memory lane, this thread.

No we're not, we're whinging about it on an internet forum.
