The Older Gamers are members of a community for people that still enjoy playing computer games, but are in a bit of an older age bracket than the 'stereotypical' gamer. TOG is for gamers who (regretfully) can't go out boozing every weekend, because we have partners, and are left at our PC's playing games after a quiet dinner or putting the kids to bed. TOG is for busy workers who need to de-stress from their busy jobs by shooting a few players each night. TOG is also for people who have retired and find themselves with plenty of time to indulge a hobby of online gaming.
TOG is for gamers whose memories might go back to playing Pacman on an Atari 2600; gamers who had as much fun playing Pitfall on the C-64 as they do playing the latest games today - although the nostalgia junkies might still be running a C-64 a simulator somewhere on their PC. A lot of us who started their gaming addiction on those machines are still around going strong on all the latest games.
TOG is for gamers who are passionate about their hobby of PC games (particularly online multiplayer games), but who want to escape or separate themselves from the abusive, disruptive and disrespectful behaviour, usually attributed to younger players, that is so often encountered when gaming online.
We have found that it is simply a lot more enjoyable to play a game of Warcraft/Call of Duty/Battlefield 1942/PlanetSide etc., or to meet up in Star Wars Galaxies or the latest MMORPG server, with people you have something in common with. Eventually these people become a new circle of online friends, so you will be playing with and against people you know. Even offline TOG members often get together for LAN events, a night at the pub for a few beers.
This is exactly what TOG is about: a friendly, vibrant community full of PC gaming addicts from around the world, who are old enough to know how to enjoy ourselves properly!

I've only scratched the surface yet but this game is simply amazing, very steep learning curve, do the tutorials! But once you learn the software it's very rewarding, there's something for everyone if you're a crafter you can spend hours doing only resource management and Kingdom building or if your into hardcore PVP this take it to huge scales, this could easily be a big name A+ title with some rough edges cleaned up but that's the best thing of all it's 100% indie and the people involved are nice and helpful, the community has a real grassroots feel to it. highly recommended.

This is simply the best online FPS, with MMO like leveling and gear and classes that you can actually feel the difference between gear and weapons, BF3 is just copying this game and but the company doesn't try to nickel and dime you to death like DICE, this game is the best in it's genre, period. recommended 100%, I can't find anything about it I don't love.
The most brutal, painfully thought provoking "game" I've ever played. A simulation is more like it, a simulation of a soldiers mind spiraling into PTSD. Mind is officially blown.
Controls are kinda wacky, had to change them to standard but the enviro/gfx/gameplay/story/music and voice acting were all top notch, it's short but well worth it a play, the combat was intense and skill based as well is the multiplayer. 10/10 but not for kids, brutal warfare with adult theme and plot.
