My name is Steve Bryce, I grew up for most of my life in Cheltenham in the UK. I always enjoyed video games and was lucky to have friends on the same estate who were also video gamers. Between us we had a variety of computers and consoles over the years and were always in each other's houses playing different games. My earliest console was the Atari 2600 and earliest computer was the ZX Spectrum 48K. Every so often I would sell my old machine and upgrade to something new - the +2 Spectrum, a BBC Micro, a SNES, an Amiga 500, then an Amiga 1200 (and a CD32!) and eventually a 486DX2/66 PC. In those days before access to the internet was common, multiplayer gaming consisted of back to back Amigas connected with a home-soldered null-modem cable playing Stunt Car Racer!

Family holidays were usually to seaside holiday camps such as Butlins at Minehead. The best thing about these holiday camps was that they had arcade games and I spent many 10p coins on classics such as Galaxian, Pac-Land and more.

I went to the University of Reading in 1995 to study Cybernetics and Control Engineering, and have stayed living in that area since. In my first year I was in one of only two halls of residence which had network connections in the rooms. This introduced me to two things - LAN gaming (multiplayer Doom sessions were fantastic!) and the Internet (at a time when Yahoo! was a list of websites each with an individual review!). From then on a network and an internet connection were vital in any house!

I left University in 1998 and joined a large defence company which I have been working for ever since. For what we build, see my Avatar!

My main interests in VGG are adding classic video games, primarily for the Spectrum and the Amiga. This gives me an excuse to break out the old machines (and emulators where necessary) to capture screenshots and reminisce.
