Hey guys, my name is Anthony aka Oz. In 2020, I am still working with technology on many levels. Besides a life long computer geek, I am also a life long gamer. In 1998, I bought a ATI Rage Fury graphics card from CompUSA. The graphics card came with Half-Life. As you will hear in this short bio, Half-life was one of the games that is responsible for changing the direction of my life forever.
Team Fortress Classic is a mod of Half-Life and was released in 1999. Also known as TFC, one of the games that redirected my life for about 8 years. During this time I competed in TFC leagues, organize clan match strategies, websites, forums, seo etc. My primary alias back then was pcfitness or pc.
In 2008, I registered ozgaming.net and turned it into a TF2 community that ended up with about 1000 members. As we began to grow in popularity so would our Steam community. At the time Steam had 600+ members and about 350 on Google Plus+. Then Google drops a bomb on us and announces to shutdown Google Plus. That was really bad news for the community and is primarily what broke it. Many of our members, especially myself, put a ton of time into growing that community, just for Google to shut it down. I was a bad day.
A a good note, the Team Fortress 2 community was insanely fun and everyone made a ton a friends. Was a great time for us! OzGaming | TF2 lasted for about 6 years. TFC and TF2 took a big piece of my life, a piece I never saw coming. Loved every bit of it and wouldn’t change a thing. 🙂 In 2020, TF2 is still rocks! It’s free and you should totally download it.
