Hi there,

Heard some good things about the site from fellow gamers and thought I'd come and join you guys. I've been gaming for quite a while all the way back to the Binatone and original Atari console, all the way through Vic20, Spectrum 48k with it's rubber keys, Atari ST, Amiga and PC before getting more into consoles again. As you can tell I'm no spring chicken (42) and would like to game with people of a similar age so I can reminisce about how good things were in the old days and moan about kids and their lightning reflexes and good eyesight. Am currently playing PS3,PS4 and Vita.

I don't mind FPS but am not that good and have a bit of FPS fatigue after playing battlefield to death. Am really into driving games at the moment and play GT6 on Friday nights with some old clan mates. Love F1 games and am currently on Driveclub which apart from the terrible server problems is pretty good if a little arcadey. The game I'm really looking forward to is Project Cars after I played it at EGX. It's a shame they delayed it as it was really polished and seemed finished but apparently the main reason was to stop it clashing with other big titles like COD, GTAV and Far Cry 4.

Look forward to catching up with a few of you online. Feel free to add me if you play any driving games, Destiny or are likely to get Far Cry 4.

See you in game,

Cram.

Welcome, @Crambar. :waving:

Good intro, we like lots of info about gaming from the past. I started with the ZX81 before the Spectrum. Any favourite games from these you remember? I recall various games from Ultimate like Atic Atac as well as other games like Lords of Midnight.

So, who told you about this place? Do name names and feel free to dish any dirt. ;)

As a community we're a bit FPS centric at the moment though that's due to a lack of decent driving games on the PS4. DRIVECLUB was our hope but they've ballsed that up big style as most of us are waiting for the PS Plus version before committing.

Anyway, make yourself at home. Do read our About Us section if you haven't already which explains who we are as well as our membership options, which you can let us know what interests you in due course. :)

Hi mate and welcome to the Seniors. Nice to see someone else like me with the holy trinity (vita, ps3 and ps4):lol:.

Ive been currently terrifying myself with Alien Isolation which is now officially the scariest game I've ever played. But I am keenly awaiting the arrival of Far Cry 4 too (as well as Unity. I'm spoilt and greedy). And it is nice to game with others whose reflexes are woefully inadequate too.

Ive sent you a Friends Request. Look forward to a game or two soon:1thumbup:

Hi Martock,Slaine.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. I heard all about your site from a few guys I've been gaming with for years (Rootsrockers, Themaskedmarvel & Talon1978)

I guess my first memories of gaming apart from the binatone were playing space invaders, pitfall,gorf and pacman on the Atari. I think one of my best achievements in gaming is still when I clocked pacman for the first time. Unfortunately that kind of mindset has turned me into a little bit of a trophy whore but rest assured I'm still not as bad as Roots in that regard :)

On the spectrum I used to love match day which I played so much and another favourite was "how to be a complete bastard" which was an Ade Edmondson game which involved you going to a party and causing havoc. Putting superglue on the toilet seat and such shenanigans. I also loved Skool Daze which was great fun running around school, playing truant, firing catapaults at the teachers and running away from the school bully.

As far as the membership goes, I'd just like to be a regular member. Sorry forgot to check before I started writing but isn't that a senior citizen?

@Slaine Yeah still got my holy trinity. Just can't give my PS3 up as I have so many great games from PS+ that I've not even started yet. And the Vita is great for work as I get to game in my lunch hour and hardly ever have to buy games thanks to PS+

Welcome @Crambar!

I'm waiting for other games (Unity, Dragon Age) and haven't touched Destiny in weeks, but I'll send out a FR anyways.

Edit: hm, if I remember later. Seems they changed the iOS app and I only see send by email or sms now. Probably me overlooking something, but need to do on PS -.-

I'm. In the same boat loads of free games from ps+ and not enough time to play them all.

Welcome to the Seniors, I'm currently grinding my way through Destiny. Not getting FC4 on release, need to finish more games before I get any more. Like Martok said there isn't many racing games, was really waiting for Driveclub ps+ edition before making my mind up in buying.

Hello and welcome. I too am a PS3/PS4/PSVita owner. Also I still have a PS2 and PS1 as well.

I'm a racer. Racing in a league on Saturdays though currently in an off season to do some endurance races with them. The game is GT6, not the best GT, that's GT4.

Anyway, chuck us a friends request. Darth_Raiden (I do have DarthRaiden666 too).
