Patrick The Nobleman
Patrick   Arizona, United States
 
 
I have changed my profile name from "pcboyer" to "Patrick The Nobleman" in honor of my late great Mother! I'm not being pompous, the name "Patrick" has Irish origins and it means "Nobleman"!

My name is Patrick, I reside in Arizona (moved in January 2016) and I have been a gamer (computer & board) all of my life. Even though I have been gaming a long time I still am learning new strategies and game play. I first started playing computer games way back on the Apple II, I also owned a tape driven PC (I paid dearly for) in the early 70's...it really intimated me so I got rid of it rather quickly at a huge financial loss.
I enjoy many game categories. Strategy games have always interested me, a good First Person Shooter is quite appealing, there are quite a few great Indie games here on Steam that I will eventually (funds willing) play. Some of the games that I have played over the years are: Civilization, FarCry/Crysis family (the Standard of all First Person Shooters), SimCity, Combat Mission (Battlefront), The Campaign Series (the original Talonsoft East Front, West Front now owned and maintained by Matrix Games), APBA Baseball (computer & board), ASL (board, I'm still learning!). I play and own many games off-line
but the Steam world is becoming more popular. I have been stocking up and taking advantage of the weekly sales of games on Steam the last year or so and now I'm retired (January 2016) from the 9 to 5 grind!
This is a great gaming community, so many gifted and talented game players and creators, beginners and experienced veterans. We are all blessed to have this great hobby and life teaching experience...Happy Gaming Everyone!!!
