Games I Play

I try to play a wide range of different games and to keep my mind open to all kinds of ways if gaming, but I do find myself gravitating towards certain kinds of games. Here’s a couple of games I find myself coming back to again and again:

  • Operation Flashpoint / ArmA series. I’ve been actively making missions for these for about 10 years. (Check out a couple of them in YouTube)
  • Civilization series
  • Total War series

Besides computer games, I also enjoy board games, such as Carcassonne, X-Wing and Elder Sign, Decipher’s now defunct Lord of the Rings Trading Card Game, and roleplaying games (King Arhur Pendragon and Call of Cthulhu being all-time favorites).

Personal

I’m 35 years of age, married and have two young children. Besides games, my interests include studying history, especially anything concerning the upper paleolithic, late European iron age and the Finnish civil war.
