A Pause for Celebration

It was over a year ago in September of 2011 that Laura and I sat down to play Mega Man 2 for our first post to Games I Made My Girlfriend Play.  We had been talking for a while about creating a blog that would showcase our respective talents for writing and art, along with giving us a chance to bond over a shared past-time.  A list of prospective titles was made, discussions over what sort of format and style were had, and plenty of games were played in the process.  We now stand before our 100th post to GIMMGP, our hearts bursting with joy and appreciation at everyone who has supported us along the way.

We are so blessed to have great family and friends who have shared GIMMGP through email and word of mouth.  A special thanks to each of you.

We are grateful to the game designers, developers, and publishers who have provided us with so much fun since we were both little kids.  Thank you for (nearly) every game we have ever played.

We are so thankful to have found other impressive blogs around WordPress, who share their enthusiasm, great insights, and excellent writing with all of us.  Please take some time to visit each of the following:

Cheese Toastie and Video Games
Counter Attack!
Game Delver
Indie Gamer Chick
Jon Shafer on Design
The Limbo Gamer
Nerd Maids
Playing The Canon
Virtual Stowaway
Wild Man Ted

With wistful hearts and inspired minds, Laura and I raise our glasses to our first hundred posts, and look forward to the next hundred games and posts here at Games I Made My Girlfriend Play.  Thanks to all, and to all a good night!
