Welcome to GO40!



Do you remember playing Pong?

Do you remember going to the arcade with a pocket full of quarters?

Does the mention of the Atari 2600 bring up fond memories?

Do you inwardly groan when someone calls PS1 or Xbox: "old school"?

If any of these questions resonate with you then this site is for you. Gamers Over Forty, (or just GO40 for short), is a community for those of us who were there at the dawn of console gaming but now play console games online today. We've watched the world of video games evolve and expand from playing on the living room rug with a wired paddle controller to coordinating movements in a shooter with a friend thousands of miles away. Online gaming has become an incredible virtual environment to meet up and have some fun. It's a place where anyone of any age can play, compete, and interact at any time of day. Unfortunately, it also creates a generational mash-up with it's own set of problems from the youngest ones who just learned how to swear to immature ones who don't know how to interact with others properly (I'm being generous here). If you've found yourself tuning these people out by muting your mike and chat volume or worse yet, avoiding multiplayer games altogether then you're ready for GO40.

We feel the same as you. GO40 is a group of console gamers around the age of 40 or more, (but we also accept those thirtysomethings with old souls). We've gathered together to form a core group of peers who can relate to each other. Whether you're looking to find new friends for some co-op play, join a competitive clan, or just catch up over games and socialize, GO40 is the place for you.  It's not Game Over...It's Gamers Over 40.
