Hello
« on: October 21, 2014, 14:39:15 PM »
Hi all just like to say thanks for accepting me into this fine forum,my name is jamie,my hair is greying but i still love my games like i did as a kid.Unfortunatley my vice these days is import saturn games and they cost a wee bit more than the budget commodore 64 tape games i played as a nipper.
Anyway just wanted to say the site is great and i look forward to participating in some healthy discussion about our beloved pastime.

  Cheers Jamie

Cheers greyfox  i have been enjoying the site for a while and thought it was time to stop lurking and introduce myself ;-).It is a great community and i love that the site covers everything from the humble 2600 and atari 8 bit micros upto the mighty dreamcast and everything inbetween.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you guys and it seems the (i am guessing here) average age here seems to be mid to late 30's which is my age group,i can not stand the peurile childish fanboyism(isnt that a terrible word) on a lot of other sites.So glad to be here thanks and i know i will learn things i have no idea about here such as the atari jag cd's i saw in another thread. :1:

Some of us are older than that, I'm afraid.  ;)

Hell i often feel older :1: but when i boot up a game it's as if i'm still a nipper and how many things can we honestly say that about? lol.The main point is this is a more mature site than countless others with younger people like teenagers who seem to think it is appropriate to shout people down because of whatever system they own.I like a nice debate about things and i look forward to engaging in some nice discussions.
