Destructoid turned three yesterday, and gushed itself all over the internet in the process.

There’s one birthday story I like to tell about the Internet and gaming in particular — one of this art school drop-out who wanted to go to a video game event so badly that he blogged his little heart out until he made it. But that wasn’t enough. Soon others with the same dream joined the blog and now it rests on him to build that company up — to share and realize that dream for his friends, too. It dies in an instant without the support of our readership, so today I’m mostly thinking about you — the Destructoid reader, lurker or community regular. It’s your day, too.

How exactly do you say thanks to over a million people that have helped you realize your childhood dream?

There are no words.

A lot more words through the link. Happy birthday, chaps.
