    Old Gamers...

    Maybe I'm a young old gamer... 34yrs? Well, I'm old enough to remember playing games on ColecoVision!

    I've read the AUP and the sticky threads in this forum and agree with their contents.

    Battlescoob told me about this site, and I have to say that he had me at "Gamers over 25"... how nice to meet people who aren't interested in just jumping all over the screen and "fraggin my n00b ass" as soon as I spawn!

    I'm living in Melbourne... but about to relocate to Denmark with my lovely Danish girlfriend... so having an English speaking group to retreat to will be a nice thing.

    Battlefield2 is my thing... AA every now and then. And just for laughs Mame32 to relive the good old days when a pocket full of 20c would keep me happy all afternoon! :)

    Cheers... looking forward to becoming a TOG'er

    Chuckles

    Great stuff mate.... Welcome to TOG - at some point some super godlike admin will see this and respond.... Once in, hop into an app for Forsaken mate - you'll get plenty of chance of skilling up etc :)

    This will also give me a chance to stay in touch when you leave our shores, which would be great.

    Welcome, welcome :)

    Village is right - just take a look at his avatar - I bet it took a huge amount of practice to get that car in there... :D
