  1. Continued from last episode, your Elite Dangerous origin stories:
    1. CMDR DuckDuckOne
      I bought a copy of Elite Dangerous for both myself and a friend for Christmas 2020 but soon after trying to get my pilot’s licence I figured I would need a HOTAS before being able to play and lost interest. A year later I caught wind of a free-fly in Star Citizen and gave that a go and got interested in the genre again. Bought a HOTAS and a VR headset only to give Elite another go but in VR.. and I’ve been playing Elite ever since 😅
    2. Indigo
      I came across a review entitled, “Elite: Dangerous — space travel is boring … but it’s addictive as hell.” Always been a bit wary of fast-twitch games, scarred by the invasion of conquering 9yo’s at my local video arcade when I was in high school, so the idea of a beautiful space simulation that wasn’t afraid to be slow was right up my alley.
    3. Atrus5060
      I got into the game due to an article in PCGamer on the discovery of the guardian ruins. After that and a whole series of YouTube videos to learn more about the game, I bought it and loved almost every minute of it
    4. CMDR Corr Felian
      I was a die-hard space-sim fan and it looked absolutely amazing. I started playing in late 2016.
      Truthfully, in RL I was born too late to play the original in the 80s (born 1981). I somehow found every other space-sim in the 1990s.
      Anyway, Elite: Dangerous is wonderful.
    5. Miserichorde
      “Let me tell you about a place called Raxxla” and after that i was hooked
