- I was in a nostalgic mood and found myself looking at my Generation 1 group (https://tengaged.com/group/4810-links-survivor-generation-1 ) and I read over my 20th season Tristan da Cunha. It brought back so many great memories, it was such an EPIC season full of people playing their hardest. So many great players like: oldnewz, 5651Omar, hinata0014, joedamanxd (albeit with a different name or names...), cheapcheep, Gaiaphagee, Chastain, MrPokeguy9, giraffez, zuelke, manalord, Jxhn, ilikebugs and so many others that aren't active anymore (each one a great loss to the group gaming community)
Looking back made me realise how lucky I was to host it, it was great to have such a legendary game.
It has also made me wonder what is happening to group games now, because I look around and there just isn't the same level of activity there once was. I really feel it in my series, but I also notice it in others. There isn't the same level of engagement there was and it seems many groups take a long time to even find applicants.
Maybe we will never get back to the heyday of groups, when there were so many great series that were bursting with talent but I would hate to see this trend continue...
Is there anything that we can do to stop it?
