Welcome to Explorer Type. Why Explorer Type? It’s where I fall on the Bartle Test, for the most part. I’m also a socializer, but the true heart for me is in exploration. That’s true for many things, as two things I can always rely on are an insatiable curiosity and delight in discovering new things. These traits have turned me into the writer that I am today, and they’ve also affected how I approach games. I love games for sheer fun, for learning, for empathizing, for analyzing, for flipping on their heads and questioning. They’re beyond the toys many assumed they were back when I first got hold of a controller as a toddler. I play anything that catchesd my interest, in any genre, but I am particularly fond of RPGs (as you might have guessed).

I’ve decided to refer to this site as “A Gaming Life, by Christina González” because I have spent nearly my whole life enjoying and being passionate about gaming. What’s this all about, then? One woman’s musings, journey, leisure, curiosity, and enjoyment along the way.
