Hey there, Boomerpeople.

I've just registered and I wanted to say hello. I've been reading the topics for a couple of months now, but only as a guest. Now I've decided to register, and I'm glad I did.

I guess I'm a "baby boomer", since I'm only 21 years old. <img border="0" alt="pacify" title="" src="graemlins/pacify.gif" /> From what I read, most of you are much older than that.

But anyway, I've been playing adventure games for like 10 years now. I guess the first I played was the original Maniac Mansion. But my favourite ones are the LucasArts classics (Fate of Atlantis, DOTT, Grim Fandango, Full Throttle, Sam and Max, Monkey Island), some Sierra ones (Space Quest 3 - really underrated! -, King Quest 6, Larry 2) and others like Willy Beamish (the one that REALLY got me hooked), Longest Journey, Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes 1 and Myst Exile.

Well, that's about it. I hope I'll be welcome here, with my fellow adventurers.

Sorry if I had a few grammar or spelling problems, I'm from Rio de Janeiro and English is not my native language.

Cheers!
Pedro lol lol

Welcome Zoyd! Nice to have someone here from Rio!

In case you are not farmiliar with the term "Baby Boomer", it refers to people born after WWII, up to the early 1960s, beacuse there was a large population increase during those years. (known as the "Baby Boom" ).

Since you're only 21, you would't qualify as an offical "Baby Boomer", but we'd be happy to consider you honorary "Baby Boomer"! laugh

anyways, thanks for the warm welcome. I've been a spectator on the forum for quite a while, but I decided to join the club now.

well, I'm writing from work, so better go now!
