Have I Played This Yet? | B

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 🌟

#Sidequest Challenge: 20 Games to Play Before 2020 | Sign-Up

#Sidequest Challenge: 20 Games to Play Before 2020 | Sign-Up

For those who don’t know, I’m part of the amazing team over at Sidequest. We’re a collection of writers of marginalized genders who embrace the strange and the unconventional in video games. If like us you love a good challenge, Sidequest is here with the ‘20 games to play before 2020‘ challenge to help you get through all of those games that you’ve been meaning to play. To make things a little bit more fun (and a little bit difficult) Sidequest have provided 20 prompts to diversify your 2019 gaming TBR.

As Soco points out, this isn’t a “spend all my money” challenge. Any games including mobile, tabletop and free-to-play games count and you can use one game for a combination of the prompts. I’m aiming to play one game for each prompt but the majority of mine will be backlist games that I want to get through before the end of the year!

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.

Top 10 Tuesday | Top 10 Video Games

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 😉
