News & RPGFan Music Editor

Steven Mattern

Steven Mattern is a News Writer and Music Reviewer for RPGFan. Relatively new to RPGs in the grand scheme of the genre, he often resonates with soundtracks of titles more than the game itself. Music is one of the most vital parts of any game to him; so even if the gameplay or story doesn't age well or hold up, the soundtrack can leave a positive impression. Games aside, he loves science fiction and fantasy films and has a knack for podcasts. Steven also lives with (maybe) never enough cats.
