It is natural that there is some pride felt by some players when we start talking about Habbo. We from Habbox after all… we defend this feeling more than anything. Firstly, because it is a game that has survived in the gaming world as we saw a crazy evolution where everything is changing a in very crazy way: realistic, three-dimensional graphics and voice acting to name a few new features. Plus, Habbo has its history and an incredible evolution trajectory, but without having to abandon that simple, but so detailed style… go figure! We made a little search of these interesting facts about the early years of Habbo Hotel, and a few things more, that maybe you do not know yet, but worth knowing if you have an explorer’s soul!
Hi Habbos! I thought I’d take this chance, as an “old Habbo” to share with you a list of things that every “old Habbo” will understand, and maybe even some middle-aged Habbo’s too! 😉
Fancy a trip down memory lane? Or perhaps you just want to know what all the fuss was about “Back In My Day”. Join me to find out more!
I’m super excited to be joining the Articles Team as a Trialist, and even more excited to introduce myself, and what a better way to do that than by telling you a bit about me, myself and my Habbo. In this introduction, I’ll be focussing on two things; “Am I too old to “play” Habbo?” and “Why do we visit Habbo”.
So if you happen to search for me on Habbo, you’ll see I joined on July 31st, 2001. 15 years ago… I’ll let you do the Math! The worst thing is, that was my second Habbo, after I locked myself out of my first account! It’s fair to say I’ve been through practically every change Habbo has seen, from the introduction of private rooms (yes, we didn’t always have them), to waving goodbye to the “BIG HAND”. I’ve seen it all, which I feel puts me in great stead to write a nostalgic article about the Hotel!
I’ve been taking a look through the Habbo history books and found some great – and surprising at times – things which will all the old skool players feel very old! Here are my top 10 things turning 10 this year on Habbo…
The 4Chan Raid!
Probably the most famous thing from 2006 is the infamous raids – POOL’S CLOSED! The Great Habbo Raid took place on 12th July, and was was the online version of The Million Man March to protest the alleged racism of the Habbo mods. After that took place, there were tons more raids even to this very day of people dressed in traditional Habbo suits and afros coming in to raid rooms!
