Same. Third entry in a novel series? I don't even know about a first entry in a novel series!!! Do share!

I wonder what specific event brought everyone here? I remember I just got my PS4 and started perusing the PS Now games when I noticed the Revelations Series that I had never played. After playing through Rev 1 and Rev 2 back to back, I knew I needed someone to discuss this new and radical information with! And we have pretty good conversationalists all together in here, so I stayed.

See, now I'm curious...
Sorry, I didn't mean to make you curious! *insert monkey smiley that covers its mouth* While I wouldn't mind showing off my new videos, the embarrassing old stuff is still on my account too, and I can't bring myself to take it down because there's people out there who actually enjoy it. That's why I'll probably never share my YouTube account here.

I‘m curious to know what novels she’s written!

I've been a writer ever since I can remember, and I started that particular novel series in 2010. It's similar to Resident Evil in structure as there are the numbered "main novels" and several side stories, which I call "novellas" to distinguish them from the main novels, even though they're not technically novellas in the literal sense of the word. And... yeah. That series has grown rather big! If I hadn't stopped working on it in 2018 for personal reasons, I would probably be writing the tenth book in the main series right now, but I've recently picked it up again.

Really just an urge to discuss one of my favourite games with other fans, although that only came up years after I started playing it. Resident Evil has been part of my life since the early 2000's, but forums like this one weren't really a thing back then (now that I say it, I'm not sure they were a thing at all?), and I was quite content playing those games by myself. I discovered online communities in 2006 or 07, I believe, but had lost sight of the RE series by then because my PC was too weak to run anything after Nemesis.

But time went by, I got a new PC after all, and in 2010 my cousin told me about RE5 and how much fun it is to play together. So I got RE5, played it with him, my interest in RE was revived… and two years later, I came here. There were other communities at the time that I considered joining, but most of them were too big and fast-paced for my introverted soul, with lots of rude posts from asshole members, so I ended up choosing this one because it seemed like the nicest. Till this day, this is my only proper RE forum, although I'm also a member of a Tomb Raider forum with an RE section.

I don't remember any specific event but I have always enjoyed forums and have met some really cool people on them (I still talk to people I met on a Saw forum in 2006 for example.), So I think I was probably bored and was looking for people to share a common interest with. It's pretty nifty when you're the weird one nobody wants to be friends with in real life lol. The ironic part is, now everyone wants to be my friend.

Nothing specific brought me to this forum either.
I frequented Alien/Predator forums before I discovered this place. I always enjoyed meeting others online who shared the same interests as me, seeing as I’ve yet to meet anyone else who shares the same type of passion for any of these franchises, especially to have in depth conversations on them.
I would say that RE5 sparked my interest in having discussions on the series.

I remember that I was constantly searching on Resident Evil 6, Resident Evil Revelations and Resident Evil Degeneration news on Google, pretty much three or four times a week. Then I just decided to search 'Resident Evil News' and happened across this forum, because back then it was residentevilnews.com. So I lurked a little as a guest and then actually wanted to contribute, so I signed up. I remember being too shy to make an introduction thread. :lol: So I just put a few messages here and there and stuck around. :smile:

@UniqTeas I could be wrong, because it was like ten years ago or something for me as well..But I grew up more or less without a computer in home until 2009, 2010 ish. So when we finally got one and I was like, 16 or so, I found the magic of Forums. Started with a Naruto one, then had this brilliant idea that if they had one for Naruto, surely they had one for Resident Evil. Found residentevilnews.com (what the site was called then), and started pestering the community as an annoying teenager who thought he knew everything despite being an internet noob. 10 years later they still haven't gotten rid of me.

I was super active on forums about a decade ago - for Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Final Fantasy, Star Ocean, and gaming in general.

But I fell off of them. When I tried to find my forum profile for the Resident Evil site, it was gone, so I ended up here instead. Plus, y'all are much more accommodating and social than the other forum I was on. Nepotism was also a good answer.
