Wish the lounge area has more participants. I would have been more active. I understand not every topics interest everyone.
Still a fun place to visit once a awhile. A lot are migrating to the Switch and a lot would rather spend their spare time doing other things like chores and spaghetti eating contest through the nostril

I usually go to the website daily. I use my Ipad mostly for cardgames, boardgames en roguelikes and I play singleplayer/offline exclusively. Also in that order, I really like cardgames. I think it's safe to say that most of those games I found through TA.
If I'm not sure about purchasing a game, I always check the TA forums.

So yeah, TA is my main site for checking content for my Ipad. Funny enough I always check the TA site and forums on my laptop and never on my Ipad.

As others have said TA was definitely more active years ago. I used to be an extremely active member but nowadays I really just come on once and a while. I don’t get the same enjoyment out of games on the iPhone that I did 4 or 5 years ago.

It’s always strange returning here and seeing a bunch of new users and hardly anybody that was active years ago. I honestly wonder sometimes if anyone even remembers me haha

Clash Royale has me by the danglies. Like Eli says. And then no other game feels as fulfilling.

Maybe a bit. Not as much to read about lately and they certainly are pounding the Switch thing down our throats a lot! Glanced at a game, looked for it, couldn’t find it, and realized it was another Switch game! That was my fault, but still, seems like this is becoming a Switch site more and more. ☹️

One huge article with tons of games talked about! Definitely the Switch content output is higher than its ever been! 😉 Others are noticing that too! Hey, I still come here every day, sometimes a few times a day, as TA is my leading source of mobile gaming info, and mobile is still my go-to for my gaming fun, mostly, and I enjoy the forums here a lot!
