Hi There

Postby benedikt_KGB » Sun 25 Mar 2018, 12:50 pm

Hi my name's John and I'm 42 years of age,
i started gaming with a commodore 64 way back in 1985 i loved the games on it rygar, roadblasters and ik+ just to name a few, i did get a sega master system for xmas 89 my faves on that were R type, rastan and alex kidd in miracle world.

I was lucky enough to own both mega drive and snes upon leaving school and absolutley loved the street fighter world warrior which was nearly arcade perfect. my fave console was the ps1 the first i bought with my own wages and it will always have a special place in my heart games like tomb raider resident evil ff7 was mindblowing for me, since then ive owned an n64,ps2,sega dreamcast (oh my god at the phone bill with that), xbox,xbox 360,xb1,xb1s,xb1x, ps3,ps4,ps4 pro and the psvr.
ive only really had gaming pc since 2012 but they are getting seriously expensive so i stick to consoles.

the current games ive got for ps4 are ghost recon wildlands, project cars 2 hardly played,gt sport, dying light,prey,the surge,borderlands 2,shadow of war,horizon zero dawn, assassins creed origins, no mans sky, fall out 4 and cod ww2 (which i dont play as im just not good enough) i will be getting far cry 5 on release date.

i look forward to meeting you on the battleground
thanks in advance john :beer:

Hi there, nice intro by the way. Welcome to OAPs.

How did you come across us John? Google or did you come across one of us smelly lot in game? :lol:

There is quite a lot of us on ww2 at the minute. And Farcry 5 seems to have plenty of admirers.

Have fun and enjoy your stay, hope to see you on the digital plain. :Y:

G'day!

Give CoD WWII a go, it's quite fun, and deffo the best of the franchise so far, none of that jumpy jumpy nonsense that the kids seem to like nowadays.

Great intro and welcome to OAPs. Looking forward to far cry 5 myself tomorrow. I didn't bother with Primal or 4 so it should be a nice return.

Hi John. That's a brilliant nick, how did you come by it? It's dangerous to mention the KGB in these times of heightened tension.
