What can I say, great memories. Experiencing some unknown game’s OST blow you away. Or the great post containing something like 10 different albums...

You’ve made my day many days. Thanks a lot for all the great moments.
I’ve been here since the start. mIRC memories attached.

Wish you all the best.

Say it ain't so! Seriously though, is there any way of staying in communication with any of the gamemp3s crew?

I've known, visited and loved this site since almost the beginning, it's sad to see it's closing (not a nice birthday present for me either).
Thanks to the whole #gamemp3s crew that took care of it over the many years, it will always hold a special place in my gamer-and-game-music-appreciator heart.

Thank you so much for all the years. I think I started coming here sometime in 2006. Hope all is well for the future!

Man I have been coming here since about 2006. I am going to miss this place. It was a place of comfort for me as well as music. But i understand that things have to change. Thank you for giving so much to those of us who love music and video games. You have been a beacon of light and joy in a world that regards our love for this type of music as silly. May the whole of the #gamemp3 crew be blessed in all your endeavors from here on on out. God Bless and keep you all!

Thank you for the years of generosity and inquisitive VGM OST discovery. The time taken and the #gamemp3 crew commitment to quality is very appreciated. You'll always have a place in my playlist, and my heart.

comment #23

Thank you! You've introduced me to a lot of composers over the years, and a lot of great music I would've never known existed.

comment posted by Bur on 03 November

comment #24

I'm missing some context about the situation, but I can guess a number of plausible reasons this would happen. What can I say. Y'all helped make VMG accessible in a time when the idea of liking music from video games was stupid, nonsensical, etc. Your efforts introduced me to great composers I never heard of from games I never played. I'm grateful. Thanks for the ride. :(

Thank you for all your hard work, dedication and thoughtfulness as you crafted 20 years of magnificence for all of us. Though I have only been here since 2005, you will always be remembered. Farewell, gamemp3s <3

Woah, I've been visiting this site for about 15 years, no way! Luckily we now live in an age when it's far easier to find VGM than it used to be (youtube, emulation sites, even legally via spotify/etc), but I don't know what a VGM-holic like me would've done w/o this site back in those dark early days. Thanks for doing what you did for so long! I actually bought a ton of legit CDs thanks to being introduced to them on this site

Oh man... I expected this to happen, but was hoping it wouldn't. I've been around since circa 2005, and you gave me plenty of music to enjoy over all these years. Thank you so much for everything and I wish you all the best.

Does anyone know of a good replacement for those of us who can't get our VGM fix elsewhere?

comment #28

Thanks for all the great music! Don't suppose anyone has all the torrent files I can download from dropbox? Lost a lot of the collection at the start of the year and was meaning to download a lot of these albums

Thanks!!

I've been here pretty much since the beginning, like others too. I've lost my collection a couple of times but was always able to get it back, at least most of it, and get some new stuff too.

Back then in those dark days VGM was hard to come by and not really appreciated, especially in the West. Nowadays there's a bit more of it thankfully, although truth be told there are far less games I'm interested in these days. I liked the remixes and arranged tracks you guys would put up sometimes too. I don't know how I'd have discovered them otherwise.

Sometimes I listen to rainwave.cc and get new reccs there, especially the free albums that occasionally pop up, like the MH Star Ocean Tribute Album within the last year.

Like others I'd be curious what a good replacement is. Perhaps there's a subreddit or forum? I used to be in the Discord, but I left when I had to clean up my server list as I had too many. Hopefully that's still open invite and I can swing back by.

Best of luck to everyone and thanks to all your contributions. Really wish all of us had met in person with this shared hobby.

Were you issued a cease and desist or are you just done with this? If the latter, I really think someone would be happy to take over.

This sucks. Damnit, I should have downloaded the #A, #B, to #Z, etc. collection.

Been here and even contributed a few albums. Star Ocean: Perfect Sound Collection, Terranigma, and others.

This is pretty sad.

This is a tragedy. An amazing resource just poofed. It's like the Wikipedia of VGM is now offline. I loved this site. I am grateful for all you've done. I just wanted it around forever. Don't know where I will find those old torrents. Does anyone have a backup of all them on a massive HD?

To everyone here who made this place what it was,
To the idlers in #vgm-central, including the German, the Brit, the Kansan, the New Yorker, and even the Floridian,
To ZeaLitY, Teioh, and everyone else who contributed in their own way,
Live well.
Good bye.

davidd, please get into contact with me at humperdong AT yahoo . com. I am also interested in keeping up an archive of the work shared by #gamemp3s over the years. I have accumulated fair amount and would be interested in combining with others similarly interested.
