How many years have you had your XBL gold account?

I wonder how XBL was back then. Was it better?


It was so much more simple. You had a basic friends list and if I'm not mistaken, all DLC was free although there wasn't too much of it. No ads, no bulls***.


Most DLC was free or cheap. I remember when the Halo2 maps came out, they were $10 for nine... NINE maps. AND, if you waited just six months, they were all free.

It sucks that Original Xbox Live is gone. God, how I miss Spies vs. Mercs. Even if you're able to play System Link, you can't download the patches and free maps anymore, and that snow map from Chaos Theory was amazing fun.


By snow map you mean Polar Base. And yes, I miss the Chaos Theory spy vs merc days.


Yeah, I forgot the name. They say Spies vs. Mercs is coming back for Blacklist but my expectations are extremely low. Maybe they'll shock us and bring back the glory days.

@AWarAmp84
It wasn't all free. I bought a couple, like Battlefront 2's new Jedi/Maps pack.

A good amount of retail game came with 2 months of XBL gold, too.

Way more people used their mics

But XBL now is pretty damn great


Yeah, times have changed, that's for sure. There were a lot less trolls/ignorant POS back then too.

Oh yeah! I forgot about the voice masking. I had fun with that for a while.

Was on xbox live since the MechAssault days on original xbox.

Played the hell out of that MA, Forza 1, and Crimson Skies. Still have alot of friends from Forza 1, come to think of it.

And it was indeed better. DLC at most cost like $5. No ads to deal with. No having to go through tons of useless crap to get to the stuff I want. It was just ...better.

Since the day it came out. Played the hell out of the motogp demo. You could play every track in the game for as long as you wanted. And just pointing out, out of the 20+ games I owned DLC for, none of it was free when it came out, and I believe only Halo DLC was free after half a year.
