Ten years. Sounds like a lot, doesn’t it? Thousands of days, hundreds of thousands of minutes. A lot can happen in that time, for sure. When I launched Space Game Junkie ten years ago — with a review of Space Pirates and Zombies, I might add — I had no idea it would become what it is today. I originally intended it to be a blog about playing classic space games, since so few were coming out, nor had come out for years.
Now, though, it’s an amazing community across several channels, along with a podcast and thousands of hours of video recorded and streamed. Very few things in my life have lasted this long (i.e. primary and secondary education, a couple of relationships, Supernatural…), but even fewer things have given me the amount of joy that this community has given me.
Thank you for being here for however long you’ve been here, and I hope to see y’all in another ten years.

Congrats Brian. Glad you stuck with it. Looking forward to 10 more. As you’ve said (I paraphrase): Not all space games are good. But they all deserve a fair shake and a proper review.
Definitely have enjoyed your articles, podcasts, Steam curator advice, and reviews over the years Brian.
Its been an interesting journey from then, where most were lamenting the death of the genre, to its more modern resurgence with new releases, open source/mods for classics, full remasters, and of course games in perpetual development limbo like Star Citizen…. Looking forward to more years from SGJ!
Congratulations on 10 years Brian! You Always make great space game content to watch or listen to. Keep up the good work.
Thank you so much!
Thank you, I’m super glad I stuck with it too!
