E3 2019 | Highlights & Final Thoughts

E3 2019 | Highlights & Final Thoughts

I had been intending to do a write-up for each of the E3 conferences this year. However, in the end, I didn’t feel that there was enough content to do a write-up for each conference individually and also it was a lot of work for each post! This year’s E3 was incredibly disappointing and a lot of the games that were featured were ones that had already been premiered last year or even the year before. Whilst it was good to get updates on the games in development and some 2019/2020 release dates for those games, it meant that there was little to get excited about in terms of new games.

This year I watched the presentations/live-streams for EA Play, Microsoft, Bethesda, Ubisoft, the PC Gaming Show, and Nintendo. I did a presentation write-up for EA Play and Microsoft, but the other presentations (with the exception of Nintendo) didn’t leave me with much to talk about. So, instead, I’ll be sharing with you all my game highlights of E3 2019 in this post featuring the games that I’m most looking forward to playing in 2019/2020.

Welcome to the B side of Have I Played This Yet? In case you missed the introductory postHIPTY is a series started by Tecsie where she goes through her games alphabetically and talks about whether she’s played them or not. It’s a great way to hold myself accountable for all of the games I own that I haven’t yet played as well as inspire me to get playing them.

Welcome to the B side of Have I Played This Yet? In case you missed the introductory post, HIPTY is a series started by Tecsie where she goes through her games alphabetically and talks about whether she’s played them or not. It’s a great way to hold myself accountable for all of the games I own that I haven’t yet played as well as inspire me to get playing them.

Let’s kick off the B games!

When Tecsie posted her first instalment of ‘Have I Played This Yet?’ last month, I knew it was something I needed to get it on. You might have noticed in some of my previous posts, but I have been focusing a lot more on gaming since the new year – partly because of my research area for my PhD, partly because of being a writer for Sidequest, and partly because I just have so many games to catch up with that all got put aside for books!

Tecsie has kindly allowed me to join in with her HIPTY series and I’ll be following the same layout as her, sorting through my games alphabetically and discussing them in turn. As I play video games across a number of different platforms (PC/PS4/Switch), I’ll be expanding my list out to include all of the video games I currently own.

Let’s get started with my A games 🌟

Games I Want to Play in 2019

Games I Want to Play in 2019

As I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, I’m a gamer as well as a reader! However, my gaming often gets put aside for reading so one of my goals for this year was not only to play more video games but also blog more about video games. Although I already write articles for Sidequest, a great website which focuses on the unconventional in gaming and centers marginalized voices, I want to share more about gaming here on my blog as well. Video games have always been such a huge part of my life, so much so that I am (hopefully) doing a PhD about them, and so I’m aiming to make a lot more time for them in 2019.

Inspired by Becca and Destiny‘s posts, I thought it would be cool to kick off my video game blogging and the year with a little list of the backlist and new release games I’m looking forward to playing in 2019. Obviously this isn’t the entire list because I don’t want to keep you here all day, so if you’re curious ask in the comments.
