I have autism, mental health issues, dyspraxia and they’re in the process of testing me for ADHD. I love playing on my PS4 and gaming PC and I’ve also just started making gaming YouTube videos. I play fortnite with my best friend and nephew. Hit me up if you wanna join.

    @t0nkys Hello Emma I just wanted to say welcome to our community forum!

    We have a great range of discussion groups and you will find it a friendly and supportive place to make friends to.

    While I do not play much games myself, I am sure other members will love to talk to you about gaming more!

    Well at the moment I’m recording myself playing Her Story on YouTube. I like games with a story like life is strange.

    Life is Strange was fantastic. I haven't tried Her Story, but always been tempted. Let me know what you think of it!

    Yes I always introduce my friends to life is strange if they’re just starting out gaming. I’m liking Her Story so far, there’s a lot of plot twists!

    Hi @kath1 and welcome! My eldest is 12 and she spends a lot of time on the computer too. Lately she seems to be playing Minecraft and Roblox. She seems to have circled back to them though. She changes her mind frequently as to what games she likes so it's hard to keep up!
