    Hi,

    Like most people my age, the first game I played was Pong. I think back at how many hours we sat watching that little light go back and forth and I shake my head at how little it took to entertain us. I’ve been playing games ever since.

    In my 20’s and 30’s it was fun, but as you get older and older it’s harder to find people to play with. I did get adopted into a few gaming groups, but as they got older and went off to college to live their life, I had to move on.

    I found it uncomfortable being old and female, playing with groups under 21, so that put limits on groups I joined. I mean who wants to play games with grandma.

    I mostly play survival type games like Ark, Conan, 7 Days to Die, Dark and Lite, Atlas and a few others. I am bad at FPS and PVP, but don’t take it badly if I die. I actually end up feeling guilty. Lol

    I usually end up playing on public servers by myself, where you can still talk to people.

    I’m located in the mid-west CMT and play after work and on weekends.

    It was nice to find this forum. Thanks.

    Well with luck you have found a place you can stay :)

    Congratulations! You have past our stringent don't die before 25 application requirement and have made it into TOG.

    Keep in mind there is more here than the division for that flaky game you have signed up for. There are other flaky games which all have their own division and other things of wonder, joy and wtf.

    Public Forums (Philistines only or less then 25. Same thing)
    Member Forums (General chat, cat videos, VR, laboratories, Steam and Discord invites)
    Member News (If you have a mind like mine you just laughed)
    Simulation and Sports Divisions (This is for simulation and sports games!)
    Strategy, RPG and other Games (This is for err... Strategy, RPG and other Games)
    FPS (Brutal and horrific death. Lots of fun!)
    MMORPG (Also brutal and horrific death but sometimes ponies)
    Operations (The name you picked is stupid and you want to change it? Policies and stuff)
