Hi all, After 11 years of lurking, I've decided to apply for membership. lol I actually haven't used the name Medicare for many years now. There was once a time when my specialty was playing a medic in FPS games. I never asked to join before as I've always been part of one smaller guild or another, playing specific titles. But I find myself looking for a broader and more vibrant gaming community of mature aged gamers, and TOG seems like the obvious choice. As a kid, I was fortunate to have a family that was an early adopter of PC technology. So in 1982, the household scored the old work PC, an IBM PCS/PCT running at 4.77mhz. I would go on to lament not having an atari or commodore.. But soon learned to squeeze some gaming fun out of the PC. Space invaders in 400 shades of green.. Good times. After school I took a long break to go play with girls and cars, but found my way back to PC gaming in time to play Black Hawk Down and fall in love with competitive gaming. I've played a bit of this and that ever since. As a member, I'm hoping to play a variety of games incl ArmA, BDO and an assortment of racing games etc. Thanks for your consideration. A couple of quick side notes.. I've read all the information stickied in this section and others, and turned the site upside down looking for The FAQ, which eludes me. And I will be looking to change my user name to Fireside, which is the nik most people know me by these days.
