Welcome to the official website for the Golden Sidewinders 96th Division (GS96). We are a Multi Gaming Community on the PC founded in June 2009. Our primary mission is the following:

   Provide an environment for older gamers who show maturity & respect for other gamers no matter what their skill level.

GS96 was founded by older gamers to be a place for older gamers to make good relationships with other members while playing the games we love. We are not interested in 'drama' but we are interested in good times together.

  • Majority of GS96 members are over the age of 30. We have many in their 40s, 50s, 60s and Badaboom1942 who is 72 years old.

  • We accept those over the age of 21 years old but they must show the maturity & respect to fit in with those older in GS96.

  • We respect all gamers no matter their skill levels. We have many highly skilled members along with those new to PC gaming.

  • We have opportunities for members to be involved in the GS96 operations. The more they are involved the more opportunities are made available.

  • We strive to have a good time & fun while playing all the games we enjoy.

For more information about GS96 please check out our ABOUT page. GS96 is recruiting new members. If you like to join GS96 then please check out our JOIN page.

Badaboom1942 is a founding member of GS96. He was involved with PC gaming long before joining GS96. Born in 1942, he is one of the oldest PC gamers in the gaming community. He achieved one of the highest Knife Kills in ‘Battlefield: Bad Company 2’ within GS96. On October 13th, 2012 at the age of 70 years old he achieved his 1,942 Claymore Kill in ‘Battlefield 3’ making it the highest number within GS96. On June 4th, 2013 he reached Colonel 100 in 'Battlefield 3' along with being 25th in the world for Claymore kills (7,574 kills).

If he is not online playing with GS96 then he is spending time with his family especially his grandson Hunter. Badaboom is an inspiration for all within GS96. To honor his achievements GS96 created two awards for the members of GS96 to work towards. We are honored to be playing alongside of Badaboom1942.
