Hi All,

I’ve been into computing/gaming ever since my Dad borrowed a 48k Speccy from a work colleague before xmas back in 82 with just the brickwall to play on it. Over the three and a bit decades I’ve been playing on one or another computer or console(or arcade cabinet)... most recently I dusted off the PS4 and played (offline) 110hrs of the bonkers, but brilliant Death Stranding – my own game of the generation if I forget that Splatoon 2 might be my game of all time and it released this gen :)

Anyway, Death Stranding got me back into chatting with my oldest and best pal from speccy gaming. He was also playing the game but abandoned before the first boss battle. And all his chatting about new console youtube videos, and me talking about Ray Tracing, GI techniques and comparison with PC hardware got me hooked on industry news again.

Hello everyone.

New here. Been gaming for more than twenty years now. PC, consoles. Back and forth really.

Bored with things lately and thought I'd find a forum like this to pick up interest again.

Sequel.... Sequel... Sequel... Barf.

Wake me up when COD 50 is over.

Anyways.... like I said. a bit tired of the VG landscape lately.

Maybe people here have a fresh perspective on gaming?

Urprobablyright, pleased to meet you. If you hold an opposing view to myself please refer to my username!*

I'm struggling to game despite the realities of a steadily more important and attention-worthy real life. I'm a PC man, if only because bae would never sanction plugging a big black box into our tv! ("Take your big black cow, and get outta here~")

I'm retro at heart, in the last decade you can count the new games I've loved on one hand (granted some of them have been absolute dreams to play) though recently a couple of contemporary titles have broken through to me.

See you around :)

*Trivia, urprobablyright is a very old username of mine which was originally inspired by some Deftones lyrics. Can you name them without searching them?

What type of games do you enjoy? With all of the indie studios out there, there is truly something for everyone. It’s just not always easy to find but there is a good variety of posters here who will steer you in the right direction.

Hi everyone. I recently registered, although I had known the forum for a long time. I am a family man, I am 42 years old and I have two children.
I live in Spain and I am trying to learn English little by little.

I've been playing video games since the golden age of arcade games and today I'm still as passionate as I was at that time. I play everything on all possible platforms.


Video games are my main hobby and my passion.

Hello everyone. I'm new!

My pronouns are: Fart, Shart and he who smelt it dealt it.

I enjoy long walks on the beach.

And I am currently playing Super Castlevania 4 on my Super Nintendo.

Oh, I forgot to mention: I spit when I talk and I fart when I spit.

Hi everyone, I joined up to chat about games and peoples thoughts/likes/dislikes, basically anything about video games. I've recently branched off into music, movies and anime but I am a clean, family friendly channel so not all mesh well with me. I am a live streamer so most of my post will be about the live stream. I'm soon going to celebrate my channels 5 years anniversary and 1725 days streamed in a row. I like celebrating good things.

Anyway I hope some is curious about a differnt take on live streaming and attitude where we focus on fun and interaction with you.

Hi everyone, my name is HonkingTonk. You will probably see me occasionally posting in various gaming topics with most of said posts probably being in the threads dealing with fairly hardcore shooters (Even though I can't play any due to not having enough money to get a good enough PC to play them) or anime-inspired games, so yes, one minute you might see me discussing STALKER, and the next I could be in another thread talking about how the Atelier series is comfy as hell. Most likely however, I will probably not be posting much of the time but I sincerely hope I will have a good time here.

I got gangbanged on era for wishing Dr Peterson a speedy recovery. I’m a big fan of his work and I don’t have anything personal against him. I was wondering if this place shares the same views.
Your good. Gaf doesn't ban people for liking someone.

We have a thread for the update on Jordan Peterson.

Quick question...(didn’t know where else to ask) is there a way to mark watched threads as “read”. Haven’t found a good way to do this yet and feel like I’m missing out on notifications if not scrolling all the way, etc.

Thanks!
