    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!

    Hello @stanthegunman and a warm welcome to you.
    Thus far I've stuck to games played on my old playstations (1 and 3). Recently acquired Rome - Total War but am apprehensive of loading it and going online. One you're familiar with? What games do you prefer :smile:
    Warmest best wishes,

    Hello @stanthegunman and thank you for getting back to me.
    I bought Rome Total War as something to play on my PC, assuming it was like my ancient favourite Empire Earth and something I could simply play against the computer :smile: I haven't even tried to load it yet, but am not sure I want to get into the 'gaming community'. I'm very 'time' and 'cost' conscious.
    I keep seeing Tank-based games and being tempted - my father was in the army, in REME, back in the late 1940s and 50s - so I'm a bit of a sucker for them.
    22 years is a long time, Stan. You must have a ton of memories.
    And all that aside, how are you?
    Very best to you,
