Heya guys, felt like talking about how you got to know about AQW. I love personal opinions, especially when they're detailed, so if you got extra time, PLEASE post!
I discovered it on 2011, I downloaded GameBooster(a program that improves gaming experience, and since I had(still do :/) a bad PC) and saw an ad on the bottom, it had dragons n shizz(lub dat kinda stuff!) so I thought why not.
I played MechQuest for a very long time and shared my account with my friend. Than he started playing AQW, DF and the other AE games. I also tried them but thought they were too confusing. A year ago I was bored and decided to try AE games again for nostalgia. MechQuest was boring along with the other games but I managed to get addicted to AQW.
I was on vacation for the fourth of July visiting family in 2009 and one of my friends showed it to me, I got hooked and played for about a year and a half before quitting for 2 1/2 years. Came back last month.
