Default Introduction

Hi TOG, I'm married and have more real life commitments than previously but keep coming back to the games. Work in the software industry, have moved from hands on development and admin to more design and communication activities. I'm quite passionate about opposing restrictive systems and though I acknowledge the need for server-side systems where rankings etc are involved I wish every game had an option for unofficial offline play.

Have started playing SWTOR after quite a while of moaning that I wished it were a single-player KOTOR sequel. I probably still do, but am finding it better than expected nonetheless. Have also recently played a little Planetside 2 though found it a bit overwhelming, and the first act of Path of Exile. Played a heap of FTL after the last steam sale too.

First system that was mine was a 486, but for years before that had been really excited about amigas and c64s at friends' houses. Unfortunately most of them preferred to play outside... weirdos. Usually prefer single-player stuff, everything from simulations and strategy to FPS and RTS but tend to prefer RPGs. For a while I was a little addicted to a MUD that I started to improve my typing. I enjoy tinkering so prefer PCs for modding and playing with hex editors, but have had most of the Nintendo consoles too.

I tend to be more of a lurker in online communities but will add to discussions where I feel a significant point of view hasn't been put forward. I definitely like the idea of a slightly more grown-up community also.
