After 7-yrs my account was approved, so pretty excited about a shorter than normal waiting period.

Thanks for the invite! I am now much older, my game collection is huge, but my kids only play minecraft and fortnite so please don't judge me on that.

My hobby and business revovles around 3D printers and I even have a horrible youtube channel.

My favorite game is Starwars Galaxies pre NXE... Otherwise I enjoy racing games, RPGs, and the mind bending stuff we see from first party Studios. I don't have a favorite console, just a favorite controller.

I once had that controller shown on Kotaku, this was before I had three kids. 🤔

/pardon my attempt at 🤣. It did not take 7-yrs, it might have been longer. Thanks all!

Hello! I'm Chump_Change because I don't have much in the way of money usually, hence the name. I'm excited to join the NEOGAF community and look forward to interacting with everyone here.

I mostly play on PC (have a PS4 but I barely use it), and I love Strategy games and some RPGs too. Not really much of a multiplayer person though despite that I still play them sometimes, but that's just my personality. Favorite games are Total War Three Kingdoms, Final Fantasy XII, NBA 2k13, and Red Dead Redemption 2.

Hobbies -I follow NBA basketball (casually), and I enjoy reading and writing (I'm trash though). I want to expand this list in to other things.

Can't wait to converse with you all! This place looks like fun! Thanks for approving me!

Hi GAF!
Long time lurker here, to say the least! Loved this board for so long i genuinely want to thank Evilore and staff members for keeping the place alive in the first place. History has been made on this Forum, hundreds of historical threads are pure gold and should be preserved for generations and generations till the end of humanity.
Hyperbole much? No, this place used to be literal perfection; really enthusiast opinions and analysis on my favourite games with fanboyism always kept to minimum, the very best humor on all the internet and at the same time a place you could constantly learn stuff on, on all kinds of different topics.
Then the split happened, schizoera formed and i’ve discovered in a couple of months what a dictatorial nightmare looks like. Then fell into a rabbit hole, my existence changed during the process and now here i am.
GAF is a bit different these days, the amount of console war can be tiresome, and i feel the usual unobjective salty liars manage to compromise the reputation of this place by shamelessly manifesting themselves in full force at every occasion, but still, i feel at home here. At least you can discuss things.. which should be the main purpose of a discussion board.

What you can expect from me? Honest opinions. I game since ‘96, owned platforms of all kind of brands and regard truth as possibly the most important thing in life.

Well enough of this, see you on forum!

Howdy everyone, finally joined after seeing some good discussion threads and some encouragement from a mate who's already in here.
I love retro gaming and fighting games, particularly Virtua Fighter! I also delve into modern games, but recently have been trying to concentrate on the backlog and 'I really need to play that one day' games.

Welcome aboard, Sam! Animal Crossing is probably my favorite "just sit and chill" gaming choice. Back to the Future definitely rocks.

Hi fellow gaming enthusiasts,

I have been lurking here for a while now, but I finally decided to give it a go.
Started playing video games with the N64, and as far as current platforms go I play on Ps4, Switch and PC.

Recently, like many of you I started playing Animal Crossing New Horizons, so I am also hoping to find some friends here.

I am looking forward to sharing and discussing our passion for video games!

Hello! Been lurking here for a while, mostly just at the PS5/XSX threads. Finally decided to create an account here.

I'm mostly a PS4/Switch guy, but I like all consoles. Favorite gaming series is probably Gran Turismo...despite all the ups and downs its gone through, it's what I grew up with, and I can't wait to see what Polyphony have in mind for the next game - hopefully it's Gran Turismo 7.

That's...about it, I guess.

Looking forward to contributing soon!

Hey everyone! I'm James from Australia, Gold Coast. 31 years old, married, just got our own place and Sega and Sonic are where my gaming heart primarily lies.

I got banned from ResetEra for voicing an opinion regarding the THQ 8Chan fiasco. I got labelled as encouraging Homophobic behaviour (Couldn't be further from my views 😓) for giving THQ the benefit of the doubt in the situation; in that they were brushing off/misinterpreting the nasty comments written by 8chan users and by doing so, wasn't actually a reflection of their own views.

I'm looking forward to joining the re-rise of Neogaf and having some actual discussions with everyone! So thanks for the add!

Hello ladies and gentlemen.
Happy to join this fancy establishment. I have been window shopping for years and has finally decided to take the plunge.

I'm a 46 year old norwegian man (pardon my english, Its not my native language).

I have been gaming since the late 70's when my father brought home a console from a trip abroad. Me and my brother was amazed that we could interact with objects on the television and I have been a gamer since.

In the 80's and early 90's it was C64 and Amiga that kept the interest alive. My first real console was PS1 and I have stuck with Sony consoles ever after. I dont consider myself a fanboy and look forward to the next gen. It will be great no matter our preferences.

Currently Im trying to finish a Bloodborne run (god damn you, Orphan of Kos). I like story driven games but Its good to relax with some casual games now and then. Not much into online multiplayer these days.

I work as a full stack software developer (not gaming related). But I prefer working with backend coding.

Looking forward to get to know you all.

Hi all, I've read this forum for years, but I never created an account before. I hope this could help me to improve my english.
I'm a console (mainly PS4) and PC player, always trying to defeat my neverending backlog (for this reason I usually play games 2-3 years after release). I've played WoW for years and Heroes of the Storm for a lot of months but I prefer single player to multi. Also PvE > PvP and Coop > Competitive for me.

Sounds like you expressed a totally reasonable and non-hateful opinion, which explains why you were banned. :messenger_smiling_with_eyes: Welcome to NeoGAF.

Hi guys! Names dolomite, if you've seen the original film points to you. I enjoy games of everything platform and love film of any kind. Been lurking for a bit now and I appreciate how seemingly knowledgeable the community is here. There's (from what I gathered) plenty of fanboy behavior but I appreciate how most opinions here are informed or rely on facts to liven discussion or further speculate. Anyway what's up?

You're probably wondering why I've gathered you all here today ;)
You should know that I'm on a journey to find active forums across the web and that I'm a fan of literature (Greeks to Stephen King to Anne Rice), cinema (not MCU flicks), and retro Japanese stuff (Gundam, Saint Seiya, and Ultraman).
I also may or may not run a PoS yt channel focused on listicals and pretending to be a radio personality.

Just got approved and was directed here, after this I'll probably set an avatar. I'd say to keep it simple everyone could just call me Ice.

I'm 37 year old dude, living near the West Coast of the USA. I got my first NES when I was seven and I've been playing video games ever since and they've been my biggest hobby. Back in High School I used to visit forums a lot, mostly FFOnline and FFAlpha, eventually though it all sort of vanished though FFOnline still exists.

Anyway, as of late I had been nostalgic for old school forums (I'm not a fan of Discord) and some twitter mutuals recommended I check out NeoGAF saying "it's a lot better these days". So I decided to read some threads, check some things out, and then after that registered and now here I am.
