    Hi,

    The first game I remember playing was on my brothers Dick Smith Spectrum 80 a very long time ago. I guess that fits the older part. Hooked on games from then through C64, Amiga, PC and too many consoles.

    Playing casually lately though occasionally get hooked on something and get a bit more serious. Seem to be spending most of my time on 4X when I am not playing Minecraft with the kids. Break out to shooters and driving when the mood strikes.

    Looking to connect with some other gamers in a friendly community across multiple games.

    I'm based on the South Coast of NSW.

    Thanks.

    Thanks all. I was trying to find the original game I played, we only had one. Googling TRS 80 games I was amazed to see what they were able to produce for that thing, couldn't see the one we had though.
