How many days?
« on: February 12, 2008, 03:02:23 pm »
Sooo...how long have you waited? How many days, months, years will have passed when you get your hands on Spore? For me it will be 1041 days, give or take two or three. Pretty insane, I'll never do this for a game again. :P

I heard about it sometime in 2006, shortly after E3, i guess.

I waited this long for one game once before, Star Wars Galaxies.

PLEASE don't be another Star Wars Galaxies....

It was around June when I first watched the GDC 2005 video

At a guess, that was about 974 days, or 2 years, 7 months and 30 days

Give or take ;)

Remember, the Spore will be with you....one day

June 2006 I watched the first 2005 video.

The upside is once you've waited for spore, you can wait for anything.

I started following these forums in late spring/early summer of '05.  I had heard of Spore initially shortly after GDC and it had interested me. I liked it but I kinda shrugged it off knowing it was just an announcement the game was being worked on.  The thought of the game gnawed at my soul for a few weeks so I decided to go searching.  I think I saw Hydro's pictures first which lead me here :)  I've been mostly lurking ever since :P  Can't remember the exact date so i'll just say it will be May of '05.  So if all goes well and the release date doesn't change, I will have waited ~3 years, 2 Months, 6 days.  ;D

EDIT: In light of Hyrdo's post, probably Late June or July is when I started watching then :P  I also updated my total wait time.

What got me through with the waiting for Spore was the patience I developed, while waiting for Fable.. :'(


I've been waiting for Spore since 2006 :)

I have been waiting since around the end of May 2005, however I did not register on Gaming Steve until June 14th 2005. I believe it was right after Steve got the interview with Will Wright, so like around episode 13 podcast.

Me too.

I've been waiting since Day #1. I don't even remember when that was... :P

And if you count it, I've been waiting for a game, like Spore, to be released since I was really young.
The hopes of being able to someday create a game, like Spore, was one of the reasons why I enrolled in computer programming. So technically, you could probably say I've been waiting my entire lifetime. :-\

I first learned about Spore Dec 4, 2006.

I joined exactly one year ago yesterday morning.
