I'm 26 and I've been gaming since I was 3. My first memory in life was playing chicken crosses the road on my dads Atari
Since then I've been playing on both consoles and PC's my whole life. My first online venture was some Mudds, then Everquest a year after it had been out. That was my first MMO love which lead me to trying many others like FFXI, WoW, Guild Wars, Phantasy Star, CoX, CO to name a few. Of course I've played too many single player games to list but I'll mention Okami, Toejam and Earl, TMNT4, and FF8 as some of my faves. I've also played Vampire: The Masquerade, D&D 3.5, and Exalted for a few years.
I'm a student graduating in the next 2 months. I'm also an artist, and a co-curator for a gallery.
Currently I'm playing Guild Wars again, I played it when it first came out and dropped it up until about a month ago after getting all the expansions. Its a fun game but soloing is getting really boring and I want to get the HoM points for when GW2 comes out and I think it would be much more fun to do it with some fun people then alone.
I think it would be cool to play with some gamers that aren't going to l33t speak me to death or kick me out just because I'm new to a game. A group that wont get angry that I can't put 5 hours into a raid 3 times a week. Just hang out with some people who are there to enjoy their time, and that tends to be people closer to my age than the younglings.
