Destructoid is now five years old. Holy crap, can you believe it?! We've been around since 2006, and it's just unbelievable how much has happened during that time. Our story is quite the unique one: you can find out about how we started right here.
On top of all this, it's also Niero's birthday. You know, that guy who runs around in the robot helmet and created this website. Send him some love, guys. Whether it be over Twitter or Facebook, or right here in the comments -- just let the man know how you feel!
Happy birthday, Destructoid, and happy birthday, Niero. We're living the dream ... because ... videogames.
