Its 2016, and osu! is now bigger than ever before! In the past, people were drawn to the secrets of circle clicking through word of mouth and peeking over a friend’s shoulder. Today, many prominent figures and sources helped grow the community into what it is now.

What we want to know is, how did you learn about the game? Were you awestruck at how good someone was at knocking numbered disks out of the sky, or did you chance upon a recommendation by your favorite connoisseur?

Whether or not your case is listed in the poll, let us know the specifics (author, celebrity, etc.) in the thread. The results of the poll will be featured in the last weekly of the month!

Oh wow, an actual poll.
Someone introduced me to it from another video game, can't remember who it could been. Took me years to actually start playing after that(Historical graph ftw) but yeah I never removed osu! from my HDD since then.

Had to pick Other: I watched a video of osu! on Youtube that was not coming from a celebrity/streamer.

I think a lot of people probably just stumbled upon it on youtube or something. Might wanna add that as an option.

I watched this

My brother showed it to me but it looked way to difficult for me so I didn't played it.
A year later were some friends talking about it and they said that there are 4 modes and explained them .So I decided to download it (and play taiko mainly)

here it was multiple things. I saw the game from: LoL player, Youtube videos (not from celibrities) and from a friend. I then decided to test my damn old laptop. And it worked. Idk what was first, so I just chose other. :)

I was posting on a league of legends forum during my second attempt to get into that game and there was some dude who was full of shit bragging about how playing osu is how he got some quad kill or something because of reflexes.

I didn't care about the guy's actual post, but he included a video of his osu gameplay, and I realized it was a rhythm game, and I had loved rhythm games from my childhood because I used to have DDR and a dance mat. However, most rhythm games I'd tried to play were too complicated for me to learn and get into. Even now I still can't play Mania.

And I was like dude whatever I need stuff to play, and this game looks really interesting. So I downloaded the game, played casually Mouse only for about 3 months before getting a tablet and playing hardcore for the better part of 6 months, before I peaked out and stopped playing seriously.

What's more is that attempt to get into league was only like 1 week long, and I wouldn't have found the game otherwise. How different my life would have been if that one dude hadn't posted that one troll topic about osu, on that one specific week I was playing league and posting on those forums. Most of my online friends are people I've met through this community, so it's safe to say this game has changed my life.

I blame the YouTuber HerrDekay and his Groundhog pass for my existance here.

Inb4 every german is for the same reason here.

Played this game way back in 2008:

I was looking for a PC simulator for this game a la Stepmania, and found osu!. I was initially disappointed with how practically none of the maps had actual storyboarded stories... but I ended up coming back a few years later because I enjoyed the gameplay.

Saw a friend playing the game pretty consistently on Xfire and thought nothing of it for a while, but then I eventually decided to check it out. A little disappointed I didn't start sooner :p

I regret the day I had the opportunity to leave the game. Now I'm here... forever. XD
