    I’ve been gaming since Kings Quest came out on my old Pentium (with a 20 meg hard drive... yep... 20 meg). I was a COBOL coder back in the Y2K days and then went back to school to become a teacher. I admit that being able to tell students that I was the Archmage in Skyrim did get me a lot of ‘cred’ when I first started teaching intermediates (grade 7/8).

    I’m actually interested in several different types of games and have played Skyrim (Elder Scrolls On-line), Conan Exiles, Minecraft, No Man’s Sky and WOW (off and on but tire of the grind). I even dabbled with Fortnite when it was first popular so that I could talk with my students about it.

    I’m not as fast as my teenage son and his group so I feel like I’m just holding them back, though they have been kind to me. I read another post that defined FPS as first person shot and feel very much the same way. By the time I figure out how to play and draw my gun and choose the right stance, I am shot by the experts with 1000 hours under their belt. This has stopped me from trying many different games I’m afraid.

    I would like to try FPS games but don’t know where to start or how to find friendly people to play with so I found this group in hopes of finding servers/games that would appeal to me and kind people to join up with for some fun gaming.

    Fairly certain you will find some people to shoot other people in the face with here so welcome to TOG mate :)

    Keep in mind there is more here than the division for that awesome 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)
