The First Hour celebrates three years of starting new games

Three years ago I was starting my first game of God of War II and after about an hour of playing, thought, "that was incredible!"  I dug out a notebook and pencil, and began replaying what I had just finished, but taking notes this time at each minute.  The First Hour was born.

Since then we've posted 140 first hour reviews, 75 full reviews, and many more reviews and writings of a bunch of other video game related topics.  We've also grown from one writer, me, posting once a week to an audience of few, to a team of nine writers publishing content every weekday to an audience of many ("many" being relative).  The First Hour is a modest site, and I couldn't be happier with where it is three years after it began.

I don't want to make a bigger deal out of this than it is, but thank you everyone for reading and telling your friends.  We love video games, and we love writing about them.  It is our passion and the First Hour is our outlet.
