title - Oh My God! (Atlus - arcade - 1993)
Today is all about 2nds. It is the 2nd anniversary of the Obscure Video Games tumblr, so I figured I should celebrate by doing an HD remake of my 2nd GIF ever. Long-time followers may also remember that the 2nd guy from the left on weirdo Mt. Rushmore used to be my avatar.
So anyhow, thanks for sticking with me! This second year has been insane:
- The blog went from 1000 followers to over 40,000.
- For a couple of days this was the #1 trending blog on the tumblr mobile app.
- Kotaku, laughing squid and boing boing all discovered me within days of each other.
- I got senpai to notice me.
- I think I pissed off Shantae.
- I finally made it onto the tumblr radar.
- My GIFs were (allegedly) displayed at SXSW.
I can’t even imagine what it’s going to be like a year from now, but I promise to do my best to keep this thing going and worth your time.
I suppose I’m overdue for “shout outs”, but Instead of just giving you a list of the best video game blogs, here are some of the people on tumblr who seriously follow my blog and make all the work I put into it seem worthwhile:
- wonderful people who also just happen to give me lots of great stuff to reblog: vgjunk, cipater, kimimisstuff, anklerocker, n64thstreet, hydao, encounteredanassailant
- other friendly people I enjoy chatting with: mrgilder, fabulation, friskywoods, slitherup, hitmeupman, apebit, horny-tyrant-pevertimus-maximus, fergzilla, motherplayer, lunaticobscurity, elcomfortador, splattertrigger, awdplace, insertquarterbin
- my most obsessive super-fans: princewatercress, sclr, kurhl, metalfro
Sorry if I forgot anybody; there are just too many great people on here!
Thanks for the shout out papi. Congrats on such a whirlwind year. 2014 is gonna be even crazier!
