Here's my first message to her:
"Hi there. My name is _____. I just read in your description that you love video games and like to learn outdoor things like shooting guns which has captured my attention a lot because I love video games and used to hunt with my dad, my uncles and my cousins. What type of video game genres do you enjoy playing the most? :)"
I usually always end my first message with a question about their interests/hobbies because I assume that it's an attention grabber to the ladies on POF.
- It's fine the way it is as long as it's not just a "Hi" or "Hello".
- It needs to be a little more spiced up and original

Your general approach sounds fine as long as it's personalized. Even just opening with a question is good. I have had many dudes write the next Great American Novel for me to read and I am so not interested in that much right off the bat.

That third sentence is far too long. It's also far too simplistic.
"Hi I saw that you like things I also like those things so I guess that means we like the same things."
Well, obviously. That's what it says on your profiles.
You need to be more creative. Ask her if she did anything cool or amazing this summer, and mention something that you did that was fun or unusual. Ask her if she goes for the 'pumpkin spiced EVERYTHING' craze or not now that the autumn is here. Ask her if she ever jumped into a pile of leaves and landed on something unexpected!
Don't mention the video games.
