2019 was the year that I truly indulged myself in playing video games and didn’t even have to feel guilty about it because I can *technically* count it as doing ‘research’ now (and I’m pretty sure playing more video games was one of my 2020 goals)! I’ve been able to play so many games that have completely captivated me and reminded me of why I love video games so much, some of which I have been sharing with you all throughout the year in the form of more video game oriented blog posts. At the beginning of last year, I posted up a ‘Games I want to play in 2019‘ list which I thought would be cool to briefly revisit to see how many, if any, of those games I played before moving on to my best games of 2019.
Welcome to the B side of Have I Played This Yet? In case you missed the introductory post, HIPTYis 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.
As I hardly have any games beginning with C, here’s a double whammy of C & D games for today!
Thanks to January’s late-a-thon, 2019 is off to a pretty good start. Although I’ve been horrifically busy with my PhD application and starting a new job I was able to get a fair few overdue ARCs finished up as well as (finally) posting to a reasonably consistent level. Thank you to all of you who have been cheering me along my PhD application journey and leaving such ace comments on my posts this month 💚
I introduced my ‘What’s on the Box‘ feature back in April in the hopes that it would encourage me to watch more television. Whilst this might seem like a little bit of a weird one for all of you who fall into deep Netflix holes, I am almost the complete opposite. It is rare that I watch TV even once a week – even if it’s something I really want to watch! Sadly, my little trick doesn’t seem to have worked as I have only ever officially done precisely two WOTB features but I want to bring it back! As I’m still watching much TV I thought I would open it up to video games too, as that’s usually what I’m doing when I’m not reading and there are so many cool games I’d love to talk about with you all!
Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly book tag that was run by The Broke and the Bookish but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provides a different bookish theme those deep-seated desires to list! Anyone is welcome to join in on their blog, in the comments or any other way.
– Top 10 Video Games –
I’m back with Top 10 Tuesday! I haven’t done it for almost a month partly because I haven’t had much time recently and partly because I wasn’t feeling the past few topics. This week though is a freebie prompt which I’ve been really excited about, especially after seeing Mel‘s post about her top 10 video games. I posted up a poll on twitter asking what topic you’d like to see me do this week and video games won with 57% of the vote, so that’s what you’re all getting for this week 😉
