Online gaming has become one of the most enticing aspects in the video game world. In this day and age, there are many individuals that participate in online gaming. One of the most inconvenient things about online gaming is that online gaming networks, such as Xbox Live, provided by Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Xbox One, are not rated and may contain inappropriate content, which comes from other online users, for under aged gamers.
About one year ago, a gaming community was launched to help gamers avoid the profanity and verbal abuse that can occur, during online gaming. This online gaming community is known as True Born Gamers (TBG) and they pride themselves on providing a family friendly gaming experience. Each member is required to follow a specific Code of Conduct in order to remain a member of the community. True Born Gamers’ Code of Conduct reduces the amount of profanity, harassment, verbal abuse, and more, that you would normally experience during normal online game play. Also, to help limit exposure TBG requires members to be at least 13 years of age to join.
Though True Born Gamers prides itself on providing a family friendly gaming experience, from its community, TBG also wants to remain competitive in nature. TBG also requires members to remain active within their community, by participating in practices with members within their own community, to help improve the skills of its members, and help train and inform less experienced players how to improve their gaming experience, to make the game more enjoyable for the player.
Another great aspect of the gaming community, is that they give away prizes in tournaments, contests, and raffles. These prizes can range from a $10 Microsoft Card to a Brand New Xbox One. These prize giveaways are to entice members to remain active within the community and to show those members the community’s appreciation.
True Born Gamers in a well organized gaming community that encompasses some ideology of the military. They have ranks for their members to show which members have the most knowledge of the TBG gaming community, who can help newer members with questions or issues they may be having, and to help instil good work ethic, discipline, and leadership skills within their members.
Currently, True Born Gamers is still fairly new, and is only available on Xbox 360 for the popular game Call of Duty: Ghosts. They have plans to expand onto the Xbox One for the same popular game, and possibly into other games such as Grand Theft Auto V, Titan Fall, Halo 5, and Battlefield 4, within the next year. This, obviously, depending on how popular the TBG gaming community becomes, but with close to 1000 members after its first year, the rate of expansions may be sooner than they have planned.
