A Decade of DYOG
categories: Misc

Ten years ago from Saturday (August 15th, 2015), the first ever post went up on digyourowngrave.com. So much has changed for me over the last ten years, like… I have a new cell phone now. Oh, and I got new glasses! Anyone remember what game or link first brought you here?

This website was suggested to me in highschool because the name implied nothing about gaming and it wasn't blocked. So everyday for two years I played on this site instead of doing school work

Oh god, I completely forgot about this! I was supposed to throw a party! It's not too late, get the champagne! Quick! Did anyone bring a time machine?

Hello, I'm The123robot. You may remember me from such communities as the Littlegrey Network and...probably not much else. Member since May 24th, 2007, since everyone else is sharing. (Ha, I'm newer than some of you! I'm surprised at how many of you have been around for such a long period of time to be honest.) I was introduced by my brother who used to use the site and even signed up once until Admin accused me of it being a duplicate account. :P Coincidentally, the page which was the front page when I first joined is now Page 300, which is nice. Well, I didn't join straight away of course, but I specifically remember Red Team being my first game, since I favourited it in memory of that and when my brother first introduced me to it we played that together as the first game. You can even find my extremely intelligent first comment on SuPuzzle, quoted below:

Deep. The spelling failure, the missing space, the nonsensical nature, it all works. Somehow. Then I made my first Forum post on June 1st when I finally found it after playing the games for a week or so and it all went horribly downhill from there. Ah, beautiful. Well, here's to ten more years than! May we meet again to celebrate in 2025 and then 2035 and then 2045 and then 2055 and then 2065 and then 2075 and then 2085 and then 2095 and then 2105 and then 2115 and then...wait, I'll probably be dead by then. Well, I'll still try to show up as a ghost. A robot ghost. No worries. :D

Not sure what game it was that brought me here, but I do know the game that taught me the most valuable life lesson. "DON'T S**t Your Pants". Up until that point I had it all backwards.

seconding the flight of the hamsters, i think i was trying to find strategy tips or something. i guess this is as good a chance as any to mention that i've always thought this site is really great--i've only ever really lurked, but it's been a reliable source of entertainment. the game descriptions add a lot of character that most game sites lack. also, i like the godvatar. So, admin, this is my official I Appreciate You comment.

I think this was the first game I played here, but I'm not sure.

I have had multiple accounts dating back to 2008 I think the game that brought me here was arachnoplilia, which is still one of my favorites! :)

I remember watching someone in a class play Vector Run and thinking it looked like a better use of my time. Idk what made me finally create an account though.

See, this could never happen to me. I have tons of friends. TONS I tell ya. They email me constantly- mostly about penis enlargement procedures, easy ways to make money online, and they make sure I know there are hot singles in my area. I feel loved.

Playing arachnophillia at school, then at home, then making an account just so my brand new email address would have ONE email in it.

I recall checking it out because one of my students was playing games in class. I waited until I got home and loved the daily games... then I got into the forums. LOL

Been a professional DYOG (and to some degree littlegrey forums) lurker since 2008. \m/
If I remember correctly it was http://www.digyourowngrave.com/arachnophilia-spider-web-game/ that first brought me here 8)

just realised that at first i only ever rarely posted as cynnicysm. i often just pressed space on the name so SOME of the empty names are actually me. but not all. so that's awesome. and also makes it impossible to tell how long i've been here so i'm totes a ghost!

Why does that first comment say 2007? Didn't comments go up until two years later?

Anyway: Good job! I still enjoy the forums daily!

i can't even remember which one it was because I went back and played all of them. I'm pretty sure it was sometime in late 2005 early 2006 that I found the place at all. Because college. im so old now. D':

Ah yes, I remember it like it was yesterday- it was this beauty of a game that brought me here. My life has also changed in many ways since then- my imaginary husband is not Johnny Depp anymore, now it's Hugh Jackman.
