Gaming Interests

Barrel is a known superfan of SRPGs and JRPGs. He has mentioned that Final Fantasy Tactics is his favorite game of all time, even playing it once a year for a long time.[1] He is also is a big fan of game developer Yasumi Matsuno and looks forward to playing any game he has a hand in developing, regardless of how passive his role is in the development.[2]
