Hello Everyone,

ResetEra refugee here. Mostly an Xbox Gamer these days, but I usually keep a Playstation around for their exclusives as well. First game console was Sega Master system in 1989, and I have been collecting consoles and games since then. Joined because I'm looking for a place to talk games where they don't hate free speech......Hopefully that is here? :)

Outside of gaming I work in IT/cryptocurrency field, and also run a couple small businesses on the side. Love gaming, basketball, economics, reading.......blah, blah, blah.....

Happy to be here, and I hope to have many enjoyable conversations in the future!

Not a refugee as I'm still there, but its good to have options right?

Sony main with a largely unused Switch gathering dust, I've been gaming for 40+ years from playing Space Invaders on a Commodore PET, as I was UK based my early years were Sinclair & Commodore (with a dalliance with a very early incarnation of ARM via the Acorn Archimedes on which I mainly played Zarch), then a Mega Drive then Sony from 1996.

GoW 18 probably my greatest game of all time.

Howdy there. I lurked here several years ago, but I never contributed to the discussion because I did not have an eligible email address. I've been reminded that this place exists, and it looks like a nice place to discuss video games and other topics.

I mainly enjoy games from the role playing, fighting, racing, and character action genres. Right now, I'm mostly playing games on my Switch, PC, and Xbox One.

Alongside video games, I enjoy tabletop roleplaying games, anime, manga, and gunpla.

Already semi-introduced myself in the Era thread, but figured I'd say "hi" here too.

Hello everyone!
I've been a lurker here on GAF since the dawn of time, and been lurking over at Era for the past few years to keep up with the news. Not a refugee, as I never made an account, but the events as of late have made me decide to hover in the shadows elsewhere.

Got into video games in elementary school back in the 90's when my brother got his hands on a Sega Genesis and SNES, and I've been gaming ever since. My first PC game ever was Command & Conquer : Red Alert, a game that I adored despite the constant butt whooping's I took from my brother in multiplayer. My console / platform of choice has changed constantly over the years / decades depending on what I could afford / had my hands on at the time, but nowadays I'm a majority PC player. I do occasionally play the Switch and PS4. For the new gen, I'll probably go with PS5 next year when the market stabilizes.

I'm kind of all over in regards to the genres I play and like, but I'm mostly into RPGs, simulators, and visual novels. Visual novels are one of my biggest passion areas, and I've been a part of the visual novel community in various corners of the internet since the early 00's.

I'm a writer/staff member over at LewdGamer, and have been part of the crew since around the website's inception. I've unfortunately been on a semi-hiatus there for a bit now, only writing the occasional review when I get the chance due to real life responsibilities and my day job, but I do plan on writing more again when I have the time and ability. I'm a massive advocate for 18+ games, and it's been great watching that subset grow over the years.

Some of my other hobbies and interests include reading, anime, manga, computers, economics, and sci-fi / fantasy shows and movies.

My current hype game is Cyberpunk 2077. Bring on the dildo collecting!

Hi every!

Long time GAF and ERA lurker here, started reading around console launch in 2013, enjoyed it tons so stayed for awesome gaming threads, , then followed to ERA w/o making account there(knew i would get banned for like 1k different reasons but i loved gaming leaks + kinda fellt i wanna know opinion of ppl outside of my usual group), recent treatmeant of cp2077, cdpr and overall genuine ppl who wants to just have fun was last straw to not lurk there anymore(altho it was just last straw, with tons of other reasons before including awful offtopic threads and even some really weird threads in gaming section, including for example thread about how capitalism is bad for videogames), i realised how awful its there and definitely didnt want to give them clicks/add revenue anymore, and i never use addblocks, out of principle), since it all fellt more and more like soviet gulag/german death camp instead of an internet forum.

Cant promise i will post a ton but i like to lurk in my spare time so just letting u know good thing u guys are here so ppl can enjoy gaming talk and speak their minds freely.

Morning GAF.

I've been lurking this place for at least 10 years and in that time read some of the 'classic' threads over that time including but not limited to(just off the top of my head) the dude who made a thread about being in the same room as his sister(?) watching porn(?) and somebody doing a line drawing of the situation and the thread with the guy whose girlfriend went missing on the way home and detectiveGAF finding out he was bullshitting.

Anyway, I moved over to era to lurk during the exodus to get my gaming news and to be honest enjoyed the place and was happy to go there.

However the last 6 months or so I've started to get sick and tired of users and their victim complexes they have for everything, it has become so tiring. The final straw for me was the whole Cyberpunk thing and people getting banned left, right and centre for wanting to discuss the game.

Because of that I no longer go there and wanted to show support for GAF.
I may not post all the time but I am definitely here browsing multiple times a day.

Hey GAF!

Happy Cyberpunk day! Hope everyone is as excited as I am. Just istalling now so thought I would use the time to introduce myself here.

I mostly play looters shooter type games with the wife but will play any genre thats fun and just had a real blast with Just Cause 4.

Had a great time with PS4 last gen coming from the 360 but the series x spec and gamepass was enough to bring be back to xbox for this gen.

Looking forward to being part of an open minded community and talk video games.

Hello there.

Irish lad here, was a long time poster here until the meltdown, when I quit due to the lack of activity. Got my gaming news from Eurogamer and Reddit ever since then and gave up posting, but wanted the chance to have my say again, from time to time at least.

Play mostly on Playstation and Switch, but looking to pick up an XSX and catch up on the Xbox games I've missed.

Greetings,

I am an american college student, I play a wide variety of games on various platforms. PC, VR, Playstation (No more), and the Nintendo Switch. I have an interest in VR games especially, I enjoy the odd webcomic here and there, as well as anime. I poke around with politics for funsies.

My avatar is from the same place my username is derived from. Full Metal Alchemist.

I am looking to join in on the conversation here and, hopefully, we can have a grand ol' time.

Hey guys. Posted on GAF, but mostly lurked, for years before joining the other place during the split. I think my old login was TreyoftheDead here, but it's tied to an old school email account I don't have access to anymore. BourbonAFC over at ResetEra. Though forum drama usually ain't my thing, the bullshit over there is just too much these days, even for someone like me who doesn't post all that often. After lurking here for a few days I gotta say it'll be nice to no longer feel like I'm walking on egg shells when I do post. They'll probably ban me once they see this, but who gives a fuck at this point lol.

Hey Trey, welcome back. I've matched up your account details and you're authenticated. I'll merge up your accounts and tie the merged one to your new email address. Do you prefer your new username or your old one?

Hello all.

I'm The Time Of Mario, though you can call me TTOM.

I'm a Mario Fan and a Simpsons fan (as you can see by my Username and AV), though I enjoy other things and games as well.

So, how did I get here? Well, I've been lurking a lot of gaming forums recently. Well, I'm not joining ResetEra anytime soon (for multiple reasons), and the rest, I'm not bothered. Out of these, I concluded that this was the best one to go on right now, mainly because it seems more inviting than the rest.

I hope that I can try to be active around here, and be a good member.
