      Hey guys!

      So, I play a lot of MMORPGs and online games in general (CS: Go, Guild Wars 2, ArcheAge, Dota 2 etc...)

      Does anyone here play any online games? I'd love to meet and talk to other people that also has T, and share experiences, besides playing games, of course!

      Please let me know and let's play together!

      Best,
      William

      I've been playing mostly Elder Scrolls Online, The Witcher 3 and Destiny. But I have GTA 5, Battlefield Hardline, Dragon Age Inquisition, among many others. I just love games! haha

      If you liked Skyrim, you'll definitely love ESO! It feels like other Elder Scrolls games, but it's an MMORPG. Runs very well on the PS4, great experience. Nice questing system and pvp, although I'm still low level, I've had some fun with it already.
      I also love crafting, and they have a questing system made for crafters plus you can make real good end game gear with it.

      Yeah! Final Fantasy 14 is one of the best MMORPGs I've ever played. The only thing that keeps me away from it now is the subscription system and the new expansion, pretty expensive. I played it for a couple of months, but didn't had friends playing together, so I quit. ESO in the other hand is buy to play, so you don't have to worry about having to pay every month for it.

      Sounds great! Please send me a message on the PS4 when you want to play, I'll be glad to join you.
      Games and going out is my way to cope, and I must say it's pretty effective.

      I Just got ESO, only made my character and got out of the wailing prison so far, back to the land of the living. It already feels epic.

      I'll add you on PSN when I'm back home on Friday. Is multiplayer questing good?

      Been watching The X Files because of the coming back hype, but usually I watch all the series I can. Supernatural, Dexter, Friends, Hannibal, Game of Thrones (not on Netflix, but I love it), sense8... the list goes on. haha

      I did some multiplayer questing, and it felt great! Specially dungeons, they're really fun in groups.

      @William Oliveira, @Steve H
      I played (long time ago) a lot of Tomb Raider, Diablo and some other RPGs.
      At the moment, I play only on IPAD ( Clash of Clans, Boom Beach).
      Thinking about buying PS4 or XBOX One. Which one do you recommend? Or better a new PC?
      But I plan buying a new 55 inch curved LED TV. So probably better buying an XBOX One or PS4.
      What is the better console?

      I'm biased as I have a PS4 but it does seem to be the better of the two, plus you have some ready made online gaming friends in this thread.

      Taking advantage of this thread, do you fellows wear headphones while playing? Does it increase your T? Since it started, I stopping wearing headphones since I'm afraid it will make it worse. Any opinions on that?

      I don't wear headphones anymore either, tried a few gaming sets and they make my t worse.

      I do have a virtual surround box that I use HD595's with, I can wear them fine for extended periods but there's no microphone. Most of the headphones you buy for gaming have a certain curve to the way they present sound which I find uncomfortable, it can be difficult to find a pair that suit your ears after you get t. For me they have to be open back and good quality.

      I wear my Quincy Jones AKG's Q701. If I listen at moderate volume I'm fine. Just remember moderation mate.

      Thanks guys!

      I used to wear Razer Electra's, but they are very closed and looks like make my T worse. Will try to find a different option. Since playing online games has a lot of interaction, it's hard not to wear headphones and have a microphone attached to it. haha

      Just been having a look and the Sennheiser Game One, looks pretty good, not sure I'll find anywhere to try it out as they don't seem to be stocked in many places. I've always liked Sennheiser headphones, don't seem to hurt my ears. Only thing is they may need a separate cable to plug into the controller.

      I've done a little questing to build my character, at 8 now, is that near your level?
