Dads of gaming, DoG, is a community of "older" gamers looking to keep online gaming fun. We're not a clan and we don't take gaming too seriously. We're a group of like-minded gamers that game for the fun of it. We game on all platforms, not just the PS3 (Xbox, Wii, PC) We all have families and jobs which come first, but we game together whenever possible.  Being a dad is not a requirement, but it is a guys only community. We BS about all kinds of things like being a dad, sports, movies, book, and of course gaming. The site has been around since March of 2007 and was created with the intent of getting together to game online without some of the obnoxious gamers out there.

 

If this sounds like what you're looking for, visit us over at http://www.dadsofgaming.com and check us out. If you like what you see, stick around, if not, no hard feelings and we're glad you gave us a chance.

 

Hope to see ya there.

I also come from DoG...

 

and I must say, its a great bunch of guys, that once you get to know... would give you the shirt off there back.  Even planning a meet-up.

 

All consoles are talked about, but more importantly, all things in life are talked about... a brotherhood.

 

DoG for Life

  Nice, sounds great. Thank you for the input. I'll check out the website. At this point, all I do is game on the PS3. Some recent health issues have made it difficult to use the computer for gaming, which i had been doing exclusively for the past 5 years or so. I miss the social aspect of gaming, and have not been able to find anything online that can come close to the pc experience. Im open to any suggestions for ps3 games, altho i primarily enjoy rpg type games as well as dungeon hack and slash. Thank you once again

Check out Dust 514.

 

It's currently in beta but if you're a PS+ member you'll have access to the beta. It's a FPS with an extremely DEEP RPG aspect to it. It takes place in the Eve online world which is a space MMO on the PC.

 

It may or may not be up your alley, but it's worth a shot. It'll be free to play when it releases.

 

Borderlands 1 is also free if you're a PS+ member. If you haven't played that one, I highly recommend you check that one out.

  Thank you Kermit, I will be looking for the 514 game for sure. I was thinking of borderlands 2, however I prefer 3rd person games. Some of the first person shooter type games give me terrible motion sickness. Seems to be hit or miss, maybe its more the camera, but it seems to happen more in 1st person. Im not a huge shooter fan, I prefer rpg's and dungeon crawlers.   Is Dungeon Hunters Alliance any good ? Do people still play it?  Ill pick up borderlands and see how it goes as far as the motion sickness goes, lol. Please feel free to shoot me a friends request (that goes for anyone).  Another game i need to get is Elder Scrolls Oblivion. I know its old, however I never played it. Loving Skyrim and Kingoms of Amaleur the Reckoning atm. Dragons Dogma will pick up next most likely. Im just disappointed to not be able to find any coop multiplayer games that i would enjoy. Thank you all again, Im so glad i found this forum. Gives me some hope to find some games to play online with some of you.

With the PS4 out, we've had quite a few jump form 360 to PS4. We'd love for you to stop by and introduce yourself so we can add to our PS4 friends list. C'mon by and join in the chat and  shenanigans and some gaming fun!

Tomorrow night we're doing an official DNO (DoGs Night Out).  I'd like for everyone to create a villain on the PvE side, run through the tutorial, then just hang out at the night club after you make your way off of Brainiac's ship. Then tommorow night about 9:00pm EST (or is that EDT) we an go and wreck things! 

 

If you're intersted head over to DoG and let us know. It should be a good time. I'm sure some drinking will ensue as well!

Hey eveyrone!

 

I've been enjoying TLOU:R MP quite a bit. Hoping we can get a few more DoGs to play. If you're looking for some pretty laid back fellas to play games with check out our website

 

http://www.dadsofgaming.com

 

or our facebook group 

 

https://www.facebook.com/groups/8397243702/  

Either place is nothing more than a place we can talk gaming and coordinate games. Most of us have responsibilities outside of games so we try to maximize our gaming time when it's available. Hope to see you guys there. I'd love to get a full group of Fireflies or Hunters going on a regular basis.
