I was referred on to you guys by a current TOG member by the name of Shivan, and I thought i'd put my hand up as an interested party to this community. I know Shivan from a separate forum community that was have been a part of for many years now, named Gamersoasis. I really enjoy the basis and ideas behind the TOG community and are really keen to be involved.
A little about myself:
My name is Aaron, I live south of Sydney, Australia, am married, 26 and addicted to gaming, much to my wife's disappointment.
I'm a support worker for people with disabilities, so I spend alot of my days being social support, taking guys out for community access teach them living skills etc.
My first gaming experiences were games like Myst, Prince of Persia, aswell as Megadrives, PS1 + 2, N64's etc. My love for gaming didn't really explode until I received a Voodoo 2 for my birthday and playing games in 3D just blew my mind. My brother purchased Diablo 1 and while he played it for a few weeks I obsessed over it, I played it constantly single player day in day out, then I saw Diablo 2 in the magazines and I read everything I could in anticipation. When it came out I LIVED and BREATHED that game. I joined Gamersoasis in 2004 and started posting or blogging my game progress, much like everyone else there did. We would talk daily about what we did, what classes we were playing, traded items shared builds etc. To this day I still visits the forum every day read/post/lurk. Then came along WoW I didn't originally pick it up until a few months after release, but naturally I followed like everyone else and it sucked 5 years of my life away. Now I love playing all ranges of games. I play ALOT of Diablo 3, Battlefield 3, Borderlands 2, Minecraft, you know everyone everyone plays. I Picked up Guild Wars 2 on release and really really enjoyed the game sadly the people I played with coupled with the release of Diablo 3 had me shift away from the game, however I've recently returned to it and was speaking to Shivan in game, and well here we are!
I'm looking at TOG because I want something similar to what I already see at Gamersoasis, a tight night community of mature people that can just share stories advice and just a place to related to people who enjoy the same stuff that I do. I'm interested int he TOG community for all the games I currently play that you support. ( GW2, BF3, D3)
