Hi, my name is Steve Barrera. Thanks for visiting my profile. I live in the Triangle Area of North Carolina and work as a software tester. If you live in the same area we will probably meet at a gaming event some day!
I have a typical gamer biography for an American of my generation. I played the classic family board games in my childhood, then graduated to Avalon Hill strategy games as a teenager. At the age of 13, I became obsessed with Dungeons & Dragons; I am not yet cured of this obsession.
As I grew older I tried more RPG systems, and had a wargaming phase in my life. Today I enjoy the wonderful Renaissance of board games and RPGs that has come to pass.
Here are some Geeklists about RPG characters from ages past:Dungeons & Dragons Character SketchesChampions/HERO System Character Sketches
There was a period in my life when a bunch of us devoted huge periods of time to playing "The Game", a frankenstein monster strategy wargame mixing Axis & Allies, Supremacy, and more. This GeekList tells you all about it:Games that made up "The Game"
I used to track all games played and keep my game ratings up to date, but that became tedious so I stopped. My tracked games cover the period from Dec 2007 - Dec 2010. My game collection should be up to date.
In Top 10 games I have put my favorite games, and ones I have played a lot. In Hot 10 games I list what is currently popular in my gaming circles.
