    Hi all

    I have been playing games since the IBM DX40 was still a thing. I turn 40 this year. As an old guy, i can relate to the whole "Too Old" concept and have a family plus job to juggle. I was about to start a You Tube channel called "The Oldish Gamer" and am currently collecting content. I literally laughed out loud when i saw you guys are actually a thing.

    I play heaps of games but I dont have one love i play all the time.

    Right now it is...
    Star Citizen
    No Mans Sky
    Assassins Creed Odyssey
    Dirt Rally 2.0
    Mass Effect Legendary
    Project Cars

    VR Games:
    Blade and Sourcery
    Elite Dangerous
    Onward
    Superhot

    From Brisbane, Australia I hope to work with you all soon... or down my sights.

    Congratulations! You have passed our stringent don't die before 25 application requirement and have made it into TOG.

    Keep in mind there is more here than the division for that flaky game you have signed up for. There are other flaky games which all have their own division and other things of wonder, joy and wtf.

    Public Forums (Philistines only or less then 25. Same thing)
    Member Forums (General chat, cat videos, VR, laboratories, Steam and Discord invites)
    Member News (If you have a mind like mine you just laughed)
    Simulation and Sports Divisions (This is for simulation and sports games!)
    Strategy, RPG and other Games (This is for err... Strategy, RPG and other Games)
    FPS (Brutal and horrific death. Lots of fun!)
    MMORPG (Also brutal and horrific death but sometimes ponies)
    Operations (The name you picked is stupid and you want to change it? Policies and stuff).
    :D

    Welcome Lerak_Arokys!

    Great range of games there - I've not tried VR yet but imagine it's amazing!

    Let us know what you're up to - and yeah!, we should do some Youtube stuff and show the world what older gamers can do!..."...Lights, Action, Ammo!..."

    Chat more soon...Mike

    I'll definitely get on Discord and coord. It'll be nice to actually play SC in a crewed ship rather than me pretending to be a captain. lol
