Guess I'm New...

Recommended Posts

Just signed up so guess I should probably introduce myself... 

 

I'm 24, from the UK (Essex originally but now an adopted Northerner) and have gamed for as long as I can remember. For various reasons (mostly revolving around the unwanted responsibilities that you acquire as you age) my gaming time is nowhere near what it once was, but I still jump on the xbox for a few hours a week, normally playing Fortnite or Fifa but will likely (definitely) be adding Black ops 4 and RDR2 to that list.

 

I've typically been a CoD player over the years but the recent releases haven't really caught my attention (I played competitively from WaW to Ghosts so played to a decent standard). 

 

Outside of gaming my life pretty much revolves around socialising and sport. I religiously follow boxing, F1 and football and also play cricket, ski, and boxed up until recently. I'm between jobs at the moment so have a bit of extra time, which is ultimately why I'm writing this as I used to have a lot of fun "back in the day" as part of a community. 

 

So yeah, that's me, any questions feel free to ask 👍

Welcome aboard! The majority here seems to play PS4 but there are some Xboxers around too. I'm sure you'll find some good people to group with.

Nice intro bud! Want us to call you yelrop or your real name? Most have got to know people here very well so we just call each other by our real names (mines Lee) or some type of abusive expletive

As Shucks says most are PS4 and PC but a few folk have Xboxes. I just haven't played on mine for ages. Then again, always is a good time to invest in a PS4 whilst the standard ones are cheap

What football team do you support?

Hope you take a look around and enjoy your stay here mate.

Cheers man! Ermm honestly I'm easy on the name front haha, people typically call me Sporley (hence the yelropS pseudonym) but I'm really not bothered either way. 

 

To be fair I'm thinking of buying a PS4 soon anyway so that may well be on the cards.

 

Manchester United I'm afraid! Not the most fun time in our history right now...

Is it bad form to shout "Come on City!" in a guy's first forum introduction post?

(In most places, the answer is "yes". Fortunately, Forever Gaming isn't like most places). :)

Nah it's cool, I live in Yorkshire now so I'm used to far worse jibes than that haha. Plus if you actually were a City fan you would've put "Citeh" instead ;)

I'm a Canadian living in the UK, so I'm kind of an anomaly. A City fan with class. :P

No worries Sporley, works for me (although my phone nearly spelt Shirley! )

You will not regret buying a PS4, trust me...You just need GTA then so you can join us on FG GTA Fridays for lovely racing nonsense.

And don't worry about Man Utd, you are not alone@tronic44 shares the pain with you.

Haha it's alright I'll give you that. Definitely enjoying not having to pay upwards of £4 for a pint.

Hahaha can't say I've been called Shirley before, might have to make it my Sunday name

 

Yeah most of my irl friends have PS4s too and have been peer pressuring me for a good while now, so I'm more than tempted tbh

 

Haha brothers in arms. Thought Jose was our saviour... that'll teach me for trying to think.

Now we've found Nemesis #2. Fortunately for both of you, I feel more pity than outrage. 

Nah, who am I kidding? I feel zero pity.

Stanstead Mountfitchett? Ipswich boy here so it’s my part of the country 

That's the ticket! Was from a village 15 or so mins from there. Brother lived in Ipswich for a couple years but I never actually visited haha, from a Norfolk family originally so I back the canaries in that one I'm afraid ;)
