Dear Avault Reader,
On November 1, the Adrenaline Vault celebrated its 15th anniversary, making us one of just a handful of video game websites launched in the mid-1990′s that are still in full publication today. To think that just three years ago I was actually entertaining the thought of permanently shutting down Avault when traffic dwindled to less than a hundred readers a month.
But this is not the story of a relentless leader making it through hard times and being victorious at the end, no this is a different story. The Avault story is about a small group of gamers that asked me not to close down the site and that vowed to work to reestablish the one video game site that remained committed to unbiased reporting and uninfluenced reviews. This selfless group of gamers, volunteered their time day after day and committed a large portion of their lives to resurrect this website.
In fact, this small group of gamers is still with us today and continue to publish the virtual pages of this site. It’s them that I want to recognize on the celebration of our 15th anniversary, as it was they who brought Avault back from the brink of death, and made its content compelling enough that now about 150,000 gamers read its pages every month. Making it one of the most remarkable comebacks of any of the 90′s legacy websites!
I’m both proud and humbled by their tenacity, especially when their only reward is to pass on honest information to you, our reader. Help us celebrate this milestone by recognizing The Avault Team, as they are truly the real Adrenaline Vault.
