Default GW2 Application for TOG

Hi all. My name is Doug, and I wanted to provide a brief introduction in the hopes that I'll be a good fit for TOG and vice versa. I'm a 65 year old male, married for 39 years, with two adult male children who are also gamers. My main gaming activity is on GW2, but I am occasionally active on both SWTOR and LOTRO as well.

My gaming activity started with Atari Pong at home, and a copy of Adventure on a scientific mini-computer at work. My PCs at home were mostly for software development, but my MMO activity started in earnest when the kids became interested in City of Heroes, and we started a family group. Since then, I've lurched through a host of games, the most important of which were WoW, SWTOR, LOTRO, and now GW2.

I'm interested in a guild with an adult perspective that views gaming more as therapy than a necessity - this said with the understanding that some people needs LOTS of therapy. Older players view gaming (and life) from a different perspective, and it is easy to feel alone in a guild with an average age of 20!

Hmmm... - something about myself the guidance says. Well, let's see. Mostly retired Electrical Engineer, Ph.D. type, somewhat shy and generally quiet, a bit of a nerd, quick learner, but frequently find myself confused when the guild ports to some obscure 3-letter dungeon abbreviation and I'm standing there thinking, "What?"

Located in Massachusetts, USA (EDT) but play anytime between 1400GMT and 0400GMT. Extended family is scattered across eight time zones. It is unusual for us to all be this CLOSE together.
