Well, I'm not exactly new - or old - but I missed the whole situation that started Era.

What was my surprise when I got back to this old life of internet foruns and saw the old place as it is now: I had great discussions back in the day there about mental health issues and whatnot.

Fortunatelly, some googling around about this whole ResetEra they keeping banging about explained it all to me and now, finally, everything in its right places.

Hello All,

My name is Alex, firstly thank you for accepting me, I found this site by accident and it looks like a cool place for discussion and game knowledge, so I'm excited to be jumping in.

Secondly, a brief history of gaming life I guess: I started by playing with the family Gameboy then got hooked, after that I was allowed a SNES as a child ( I know I'm old) and then progressed through PS1, N64, GameCube, Original Xbox, Xbox360, PS3, PS4, XboxOne and now XboxOne X. I have a half decent pc too but my coordination is like having two left feet instead of hands so I prefer console.

Anyway sorry that was long, I'll try and be more brief going forward 🙂.

Thanks for accepting my account.
I'm hoping to find a nice community here, where I can actually talk about video games instead of constant arguing.
I mainly play SDTV consoles. Right now I'm having a good time with a repaired PS1. Unfortunately I have a very large backlog.

Greetings folks, just posting to say thanks for activating my account. I’ve lurked this circuit for around ten years and it feels great finally being able to join in with the discussion. There is a fantastic community here and I look forward to contributing.

The weather is miserable in Wales at the moment so I’ve been playing a lot of Rockman and Castlevania around my studies. I look forward to discussing all things current gen, arcade, and FPGA.

Would you look at that, I joined a looong while ago but I never saw this thread, might as well do it now!

I gotta thank admins for creating an account for me despite not using my company's mail adress (because my "company" is a state institution with strict rules on private use of mail adresses). So thanks for that!

Anyways my name is Janine, some call me Janny, I'm from Germany and am what my parents would probably call "too old for video games" (I'm 28 and they are what internet society nowadays calls "boomers", so...) . I am also female. Scandalous to the main stream. I've long since stopped caring though :P.

That being said, while having friends who generally enjoy video games, some of them even own consoles, but for most of them it's priority no. 25, right behind cutting the garden hedge in a heart-shape, cause gardening is the shit and all. Well... You get my drift. None of them view it as central to their personality, and as such my enthusiasm for it is mostly not met with equal measures of excitement. That can be pretty frustrating, so here I am, talking to people who actually care! :D

So... A late hello it is! Hope we're gonna (continue to) have fun!

Hello everyone!
Thank you for the admin who approved my account. Gonna be honest, been lurking resetera and the old forum for a few years already (the fake 'nx' leak with the trees was an amazing read) finally managed to get an email that is allowed to register in this great community.
Hope to discuss future threads with all of you! There are some really engaging topics going around here that I always read with a lot of curiosity!

Best regards,
Nucarn

After more than a decade of lurking on GAF and now ERA I finally realized that my ISP provides me with a mail address so I can finally join y'all. I am from Germany and mostly game on PC and XBOX (still debating on buying a PS 4 for Gravity Rush 2).

I am also the greatest Saber stan ever, so expect a great influx of OG Arty on this forum for the foreseeable future.

Been here for a while but never introduced myself. Old guy (53!) that has been gaming since pong. Owned every PS and Xbox, some older Nintendo consoles, Atari 2600, Intellevision, ColecoVision, etc. PC gamer back in the day, got tired of trying to keep up with the latest and greatest tech. Big Commodore 64 guy back in the day as well.
Looking forward to next gen. This is a great forum, glad a buddy guided me here.

Hi, I've known about this forum for 2 years back when I was in school, but I finally decided to join it.

I'm mainly a French speaker, so if any of my sentences make no sense/sound weird, you can tell me how to rectify it and I highly encourage you do so without being rude about it. Also, I'm a big fan of Super Mario Brothers and Nintendo related stuff in general and have been playing video games for over a decade now.


Oh for anyone here wondering where I got this fantastic avi from, here it is. It is free to use for personal usage only.

Hi all. I've been lurking for a good three months or so now and figured I'd finally join in the conversation. I'm currently playing DQXIS on the Switch and re-playing Bloodborne on the PS4. I recently did an inventory of my gaming backlog and found that it stands at over 300 games, so please keep me away from any digital game sales for the next decade or so. Bonus points if you can name the movie my avatar and username are from.

Hey! I figured I should finally post on here. Long time lurker looking to break some anxiety and post every now and then. Mainly game on PC but occasionally PS4 and Switch. Right now, I'm in the middle of a major Path of Exile addiction.

Thanks for the approval and I'm looking forward to joining in. :)

I registered with my student email but that is only as good as long as I am a student. What can I use in its place when I am no longer a student?

Hi everyone :)
I've been lurking for some months now and have even already posted on some threads before (sry) but decided to formally introduce myself now.
My bf-soon-to-be-kinda-already-is?-husband (hi Ethical Hedonism) introduced me to ERA and although I'm not much of a gamer as he is I enjoy wasting my time reading strangers bickering endlessly on the interwebs
also I'm about to start Pokemon Sword so YAY

Hi everyone.

(First of all, I apologize for my poor level of English writing)

I'm European and I've been reading you for long time. I'm delighted to be a part of this community.

Recently I actively entered GAF and officially introduced myself, so I will take advantage of part of that presentation, since it is the same for Era.

Since 1994 I have been 3DVFX Generalist, although for a few years I have been a producer and developer of cross-platform VR content in a new and small-medium-sized company (I sent an email to Hecht but he hasn't received approval yet, maybe he hasn't seen the message yet.). But from the beginning I want to make one thing clear, I have not joined together to filter any type of private information or to advertise. I have joined to share opinions and hobbies beyond the professional and to help clarify doubts about the issues that I can, if necessary.

As for my personal tastes, I find it difficult to choose a favorite video game, there are many masterpieces, but if I had to choose a special one for me it would be Monkey Island.

The same goes for consoles, although I could assure you that PS2 has been the one that has given me the most hours of fun and that in my adolescence I have always considered myself a PC player, there is a special place in my heart for MSX (which by the way , for those who do not know, Sony was one of the manufacturers of the Hardware and Microsoft one of the adapters of the Software).

In my wetter thoughts I still dream of a future alliance (again) of Sony and Microsoft to create the definitive video game system (evil laugh).

I hope to contribute to the forum everything that is allowed to me and, although my contributions may be spaced in time, I will try to always be interesting.

P.S. I will wait for Hecht to validate me before I start contributing to the community.

Cheers and play.

Thank you to whoever approved my account.

Feels weird to have an account after lurking for so long!

I'm a Kojima fan and I enjoy how the love for him here is practically unanimous and salt-free.

thanks for the approval!

I'm a Fighting Game fiend and resident '09er, even though I've been obsessed with them since getting my hands on Mortal Kombat II as a kid

Just really glad to see a thriving forum community, as I sorely missed the format :D

Hit there! I came here as part of a so far depressingly futile quest to find a gaming community that's both reasonably active and not terrible. Thank you very much for approving my account. I'll try my best to be a good contributor.

Hey, I'm a game dev with peculiar opinions.

Actually, someone here posted a thread about the game I'm working on and it doubled the trailer views overnight.
We have a demo on the way, so maybe in a month I'll make a thread explaining what it's all about and answering questions?
LMK if that goes against any rules on self-promotion (I promise I won't spam about it).

Anyway, I'll probably lurk a bit... maybe get drawn into a few arguments.

Greetings all!

Thanks to the admin that approved my membership.

I'm a bit of a forum veteran previously managing EA's UK forum. I've been nomadic for a few years looking for a decent and *active* forum. Resetera certainly seems to be both of these things so I'm hopeful I will be here regularly and for a good while!

A bit about me - from the UK, pushing 30, married, started my own business towards the end of 2019.

I game regularly between my PC, N Switch and PS4 - passionate about science-fiction generally.

My favourite game of all time is Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy (PC), playing that on and off since its release in 2003 - currently enjoying finishing off Jedi Fallen Order (or as I like to call it, Falling Off Order 🤣)

Also want to congratulate the admins on a very clear, robust and fair set of guidelines and rules. It's fantastic to see the team engaged with the community so closely. 👍

Hope to see you all around!

Hello everyone! Thanks a bunch to the admin that approved my registration. I'm glad to be given the opportunity to participate in this community.

I've been playing video games for a most of my life - much like many of you, I'm sure. My favourite game is Deadly Premonition. Despite its (many) flaws, I was drawn in by its unique charm and it holds personal significance for me. Generally, I'm at the point of my gaming career where I'm beginning to properly appreciate games that are a little bit different. Recently I started playing Kentucky Route Zero, coinciding with the final act's release. I'm loving it so far (just finished act 1).

I came to ResetEra in pursuit of an online community that I felt I could feel at home with. I've struggled in the past to find communities that aren't filled with toxicity, especially with regards to prominent social issues. I also appreciate the wide range of topics discussed here!

I don't want to write too long of an intro post for fear of some poor soul happening upon it and scrolling through a huge body of text. I'll keep it short and just say that I'm looking forward to getting to know you all and hopefully who I am and what I'm about will come through bit by bit in my other posts. Thanks again for the opportunity. Much love to you all.

Thank you to whomever approved me. My name is Noe, aka BigMex. I write shitty takes on fighting games on my blog and podcast: The Street Writer Podcast. My favorite game of all-time is NiGHTS into dreams... I'm a huge Sonic Team fan, love fighting games, and have been playing video games since the Earth was still cooling down. I look forward to reading up on everyone's takes on the fighting genre. Please feel free to ask me a question or call out my crap takes.

Hello

I am an aspiring solo developer with one goal in mind: Create the best DirectX 12 based game engine in the world. As a devout supporter of open source, I'm always interested in sharing my knowledge as well as learning from those who might know more than me. You can check out my Github (same username) if you're interested in following my progress.
