Exactly as the title says. How long have you been following NGW? I myself have been watching Dan's and John's guides since John first did his Resistance: Fall of Man guide in 2006, back before he did voiceovers. I was never active on the forums though because I couldn't contribute much to their playthroughs/podcasts.

Since September 09 when I bought the Splinter Cell complete Box and watched Beer_Barons 100% stealth guides (on youtube). And somehow I found out about NGW and well.... I've been following it ever since.

Since 06, when Beer Baron submitted his one and only video to Machinima for R6V2.

I've been following NGW since July 07, when I was looking for a guide of The Darkness on the Hard difficulty. IAF (I almost forgot), thanks for the guide BB :)

Since Aug 09 not entirely sure why, maybe modern warfare 2, then i lost interest over the last couple of months because of work in school but now I'm back and as lazy as before.

I've followed them since they uploaded those 7 Oblivion videos, I was at first waiting for them to finish the guide since I didn't have Oblivion at the time before I figured out they never would..

Glad I am also not alone in the watching. I don't know why, but I just watch guides for all of the commentary, especially ones where Beer_Baron can rant about something., Killzone 2 was good for that.

Myself, I've been around about the time that the Gears of War guide came out, sometime in I think 2007? Goddamn that General RAAM, I was being spanked by him on Normal.

Yeah, the voiceovers are what I like most.

Sometimes when I'm not interested in the game I just play the guide in a tab and pretend I'm listening to a podcast ^^

Kinda strange though....

I started watching on the Gears of War 2 guide. Shortly after, I watched the whole Dead Space guide without ever having actually played the game. I forget which guide it was that they first talked about the podcast (could've been Dead Space) but I caught it on Episode 1 and have been listening ever since.

February of 2007. I can't remember what video I was looking at (it may have been Rainbow Six Vegas) but the concept of video guides was new to me then and I liked it a lot more than gamefaqs.

Been on and off since 2007 but when I was looking for a Killzone 2 walkthrough, I remembered NGW and went straight to the website. Although I loved the game and Beer_Baron ranted about it in his voice overs, he made valid points about the flaws in the game and I respected him for it, and ever since then I've been following NGW ^^

I believe I first started paying attention around the time of GoWII.  I worked back to older titles and glanced at newer ones.  Only really commenting on the games I knew something about.  My preference for games with Dan and BeerBaron playing would probably be games that have 'shooting'.  At least concerning titles I don't play and don't intend to (experienced through their play).

I've been watching videos on and off since COD4, but I've been a "regular" since the House of the Dead Overkill videos. The most pointless walkthough ever but great commentary and hilarious cut-scenes kept me watching.

 I personally started following the guys since 2 Chimps emerged onto the iTunes store back two (three) summers ago. I was always looking for new good  videogame podcasts, and when I stumbled upon the guys who had done that nifty Vegas 2 walkthrough, I gave it a listen.

 

Fun fact: I have every single episode of 'Davenport on my iPod Touch.

 

Keep it up guys!

Halo 3 times. I was a noob and that Cortana mission was pissing me off so I went to look up a guide hoping for a quick, painless way through it. That's how I found NGW, late 2007
