Hi NeoGAF,

been a member for close to 2 months now, I think it's time to step out of the shadows of lurking and into the light that is shitposting :)

I'd like to introduce myself. Hi, I'm Neil. A 37 year old male whose greatest passion is the medium of videogames. Spend way too much time and ,money on the hobby but it makes me happy and hurts no-one so that's good, no?

Anyway, just wanted to say Hi and hope to have some fun interactions with you guys.

Lots of new people. Welcome all and thanks for joining :D
Hi, everyone! My name is Bartosz and I'm from Poland.

I like single player games, especially RPGs and everything with "adventure" in it (from old-school point-and-click titles to modern third-person action-adventure games). My favorite game series, since PS2 days, is Yakuza. My favorite drama is The Wire, my favorite comedy is Seinfeld and... I don't know what else to say. I'm just happy to be here :messenger_grinning:
A Polish fella and no mention for CDPR? I’m disappointed :(

Greetings fellow meat machines. Thorwor here... doing the intro thing. Classic arcade gaming is my forte but I appreciate all platforms. The last console I purchased was the PS2. I would have purchased the PS3 had it been cross-compatible with the PS 1&2 games. Nowadays, emulators are much improved and are holding corporate greed in check for the moment.
I recently finished building my dream cabinet complete with 50 emulators and over 100,000 games, and wanted to see what other cab designers are up to. So far, I've seen some fantastic ideas on here and posted some pics of mine as well.

I love baseball and Linux. Love to see those things introduced so early in the introduce yourself thread.

Me, I'm 48 years old and have been gaming since the beginning of things. I love most every genre and tend to play from a wide variety of eras and devices.

In terms of who I am, I'm married (close to 20 years now - sometimes great, sometimes it's too much, like all very close relationships. ;)) I have one child who is a teenager. My wife and I own our own business and I am an investor/trader on the side.

I've traveled quite a bit. I'm native to the US, but have lived abroad (in Sweden) for several years and speak both languages.

I'd say I'm a thoughtful chap, tending more towards introversion, although I do enjoy a good gathering, especially with family and friends.

I'm happy GAF has stuck around through the prior turbulence. I prefer not to judge or jump to conclusions about others, as I'm sure I'm as troubled as just about everyone else. I enjoy the dialogue that is possible in both the gaming and off-topic forums and consider this a wonderful community most of the time.
Greetings. You sound like a kindred spirit. I'm also 48 and a lone wolf type. Not much on baseball (or any sport for that matter) mostly because I used to work in the industry and watching a game feels like work to me.
Linux, however is the greatest thing since sliced bread! What you said about being around since the beginning of things brought on a flood of fond memories from long days at the arcade to my first computer (Atari 400). Remember those? Have fun on here, and game on, brother!

Welcome. I too built a cabinet AKA Game Museum. I think there’s a pic of it in one of the Show Your Gaming Setup threads. Love it.

Can't remember if I've introduced myself here or not but wanted to so here we go...
Hello from the Bluegrass State. I am a Christian so I love the Lord and am thankful for all that He has blessed me with. I'm also a 38 year old gamer who has love gaming since the NES days. I currently play on Xbox One X, Switch, and some emulation on my Android phone. I look retro gaming and am currently collecting and building a collection to share some of the games with my kids that I grew up playing (right now I have NES, Genesis, 32X, Saturn, Dreamcast, PSP collections). And i'm an avid college football fan...ROLL TIDE! I was on the "other site" for a while but the animosity towards anyone who didn't agree with the far left was just too much. I've lurked here back and forth for a number of years but for some reason just decided to start playing a more active role. Glad to be around people who love games!

Hello friends.

My real name is Nidal Nijm, I am a Muslim from Brazil (my parents are from Palestine), I am 35 years old, a veteran gamer who played almost all games you can imagine.

I work with Web Design as my job (earn a living to spend on my family, my wife and daughter) and as Game Developer for passion, and love, and maybe some day I can earn my living from developing games.

I love video games in general, music, action movies, good food, and a smart talk, especially everything related to 3D, Animation, Programming, Game Development in General. I like to make friendships over the internet, and indeed thanks to many friends I made over the internet, I was able to realize my dream of working with game development.

All the knowledge I aquired on game development is thanks to this wonderful comunity.

I have got may cool things to share with folks here, however, I know I need to be patient until I can post threads with links.

I also want to upload a download link for the demo of a game I am working on from since 2 years, so all folks here can test my game and give me a good feedback.

Anyway I feel honored of being a member of this comunity NeoGaf.

Cheers for all.

Hello, my name is Tony from Sacramento, California USA. Just celebrated my 47th birthday.
Been gaming since the 80s, mostly on PCs. Pretty open to playing any type of game, but I usually gravitate towards strategy and puzzle games. Bought a few consoles in the past decade or so, but realized that it's not worth the cost just to buy one for an exclusive game or two. Have a Nintendo Switch, but honesty haven't played it much since I bought it.
Used to lurk NeoGAF in the early to mid-2000s, but never bothered to create an account. Recently, I thought why not come back here and make some noise? But honestly, I'll probably mostly lurk for a while :D

Even though it makes you happy. It is always a good idea to spend time with family or meet up with new/old friends (not that you don't already) but it's just for those who need to read it.
If you love your hobby so much do you share it with the world? ( Just curious <3 )

And make them understand how broken and overrated it is? Good idea.
Hush, don't mention the politics! They're just kids!!! :(
They need to laugh at my references. Like if they're crying and I'm like "Aw, someone stole your sweet roll?" They better laugh otherwise Imma Fus-Ro-Dah their butts outta the house -_-

I am an older gamer, "49" . I have a soft spot for Xbox as it was the original that got me back into gaming. I end up with
all three consoles though, well me and my kids. I find myself playing twitch games less and less, looking at you C.O.D.
I do enjoy watching my son's play them, and telling them what to do lol.. Some of my favorite games are:

Halo
K.O.T.O.R
Fable
God Of War 4
Jade Empire
W.O.W
looking forward to discussing gaming with everybody!!

That's awesome!!! Anyway I feel honored of being part of this comunity. I am an active member at Unreal Engine Forums and on PS3 Hacking Scene, I am friend of many legendary PS3 Scene Devs, like Habib, Joonie, Escort, and others. Also with their help I was able to realize my project UDKUltimate Engine, a custom and modified version of UDK engine which allows export the game for consoles PS3 and XBOX360. I am awaiting to share all these goodies with folks here.

Cheers.

Hi, I'm Doug Quaid. Sometimes people mistake me for a guy named Hauser who's a real asshole.

I'm into collecting retro games, arcades, and recently have been pulled into HD gaming via Nintendo Switch.

I've been lurking here for years and I've always dreamed of going to Mars.
Hey, Doug. It's nice to meet you! I'm sure if you work toward your dream then hopefully one day you could make it a reality ❤. Dope! I loved the first sonic by sega I never beat the game though lol cause when you die you start right at the beginning but loved it

Hi members, both new and old. ;)

We've set this imaginatively titled thread up as a friendly, welcoming space for people to just say "Hi" and maybe share a few words about themselves. This was my introduction from the thread we created for staff members, it doesn't need to be anything of that size though, anything would be great.

Maybe tell us what sort of games you like, what games your looking forward to, what non-gaming things you're interested in and maybe even a little bit about your choice of avatar.

REMINDER: THE DEFAULT AVATARS WILL BE REMOVED SHORTLY SO YOU'LL NEED TO UPLOAD ONE VIA YOUR ACCOUNT AT THE VERY TOP OF THE PAGE OR REQUEST A CUSTOM AVATAR HERE - Official NeoGAF Avatar Request Thread (work in progress)
We actually have several hundred brand new members that have just been joined up (Neophytes), I've added a few links below so that newer members can find their way to threads that may be of use to them.

------------------------------
BASIC MEMBERSHIP TYPES

There are three main types of membership on NeoGAF which I'll give a brief overview on below. You may also see other types of members in the community but these are the "standard" membership types.

Neophytes - The absolute newest of members.
  • Unable to create new threads. (Neophytes can now request to have a thread created on their behalf, follow this link for details.)
  • Unable to send messages using the NeoGAF messaging service. Able to receive messages though.
  • Unable to edit own posts after five minutes.
  • All posts are unpublished until a member of staff validates and publishes the posts.
  • Unable to enter NeoGAF Giveaways.

Neo Members - Have been seen to contribute positively to the forum.
  • Unable to create new threads.

Members - Have demonstrated a sustained positive contribution to the forum.
  • No member restrictions.

Although number of posts are also a factor in people moving from one type of membership to another, the reason we're not listing specifics is because it isn't solely based on that so somebody who has contributed positively could well be moved earlier than somebody with twice as many posts. Don't spam posts and expect to be moved earlier because it's very easy for the move to be delayed if we see that you're having a negative effect of the community.

Although being a full Member is permanent, in the general sense, it is possible for people to have rights removed if its deemed fit by the team. This would be unusual but it certainly isn't unheard of.

As some may already have noticed, we now have a Giveaways Tab at the top of the page, we're currently hosting our first giveaway and it's very much a work in progress but each individual giveaway can be set with a required minimum membership level rather than there being an overall requirement, so it's always worth checking there. Neophytes will not normally be able to enter though but as this one is a bit of test run for us, it is actually possible.

If you are a Neophyte and are wanting to contact staff for something and it isn't appropriate to use the Report Function (Reporting inappropriate posts) or the Error Reporting & Feedbackthread then you are able to do this using the Contact Us tab at the very bottom of the page or by using this email address - support@neogaf.com

Although you may find that you have more or less privileges than other members with different membership types, it doesn't mean that one type of member has authority over other members, it's not a rank and should never be treated as such.

------------------------------​

Welcome to all members and thank you all for your contributions here, there's been a lot of support from the community here recently and we all hope that the you will lead by example for the new people rather than just relying on us to tell people what to do.



USEFULL THREADS

I've been on the lookout the last few months or so for a new gaming forum to keep up with aggregated news and contribute discussion.
After lurking awhile, GAF looks like a great place to settle in.
Solid moderation and diverse membership with a well attenuated tolerance for social activism primacy.

Looking forward to see how this works out and contributing to Gaf's success.

Suggestion: when in the post box the tab key should select the "Post Reply" button so that you can hit tab-enter to post, instead it opens the upload image dialog.

IIRC you can use the tabindex property to change this, although it's been years since I was a UX plebe so perhaps that's changed.

I only require 5% of that sweet GAF Gold revenue if you implement this change.
