Introduction - Gordam

Post by Gordam » Sun Feb 23, 2014 10:01 am

Hi there, I would like to join your guild.
I was part of Chaos Lemmings with Mike, Kurley, Steve (ZombieElvis) and others. I currently play strategy, action and fps games. I used to play mainly RPGs, but tastes have changed a little it seems.

I'll probably continue playing games as I'm already 32 and I don't see any sign I'm "growing out of it".

LOL Yeah eventually people around me also started to accept that fact.

But we're definitely making progress. Gaming is less and less seen as a kids activity and its about high time. Yelling at a football game was acceptable adult behavior, playing a cerebral strategy game was childish... well we've turned that corner. That and gaming is growing up in that its like sports where you've chess, fencing and American football all under the same group classification, but being oh so different.
We're on the move, soon it will be gamers leading countries, you wait and see!

Greetings! Don't be worried about the references to the mad house...

No active MMO characters right now...

I remember when old Orix used to write game reviews, what happened to to him!?
