[11:11] Games To Get To Know Me

Following the new trending Twitter posts of 10 Games To Get To Know Me, I’ve noticed many people’s answers usually contain games that are similar genres or styles. After thinking long and hard about my answers, I realised that my gaming tastes are so widespread that my list could’ve been mistaken for being drawn straight out of a hat.

This list is going to be a little different to others I’ve come across as I’ve picked my favourite game from a different genre for each answer. Also, with this being a Skylar-Mei list, of course it’s going to feature 11 games! Since I appear to have missed the last [11:11] post, I’ll feature this as this final one in the series – sorry it’s late!

11 Backlogged Games To Play During 2020

This time last year, I put together a ‘Most Anticipated Games of the Year’ list as there were so many games I was excited to be released in 2019. 2020 is going to be slightly different. Although there certainly are a strong handful of games set for release this year (I’m sure I’ll put a list together at some point), I’m actually more interested in getting around to my priority backlog list.

11 Best Games I Played During 2019

With 2019 coming to an end, it’s only right to make a list of the 11 games that I’ve enjoyed playing the most over the past 12 months. I’m pretty happy with the gaming progress I’ve made this year and I’m pleased with how this list turned out – I even surprised myself with a few of these entries.

11 Most Anticipated Games of 2019 [REVIEW] [11:11]

As December is reserved for my favourite games of the year list, I’ll be taking a look back at the Most Anticipated Games of 2019 post I created in January. All the games on this list have either already been released or are scheduled for 2020, so I feel like this review wouldn’t turn out any different whether I did it now or next month.

11 Characters I Would Like to Cosplay As For Hallowe’en [11:11]

Hello! October is here and I’m feeling spooky! This post is a little different from the others in the [11:11] series as I’ll be talking about games in a less direct way by featuring a list of characters here instead.

I’ve had a minor interest in cosplay for some time now, but I’ve never felt the urge to make a proper go of it. With this month being Hallowe’en, I’ve been thinking about which gaming characters I’d love to have a go dressing up as if I was to go to a party or event (which is highly unlikely for a shut-in like myself – but still). I came up with a few ideas so thought this would make an interesting topic for a post. Who knows, maybe by next year I might’ve actually tried a least one!

11 Games To Play During September [11:11]

I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited for September to come around! I’ve been working an awful lot recently and I’ve not had a proper break since January so I’m definitely ready for some time off. I’ll be spending 10 whole days with my boyfriend, so we’re planning on working our way through a load of games – mostly local co-op games – that have been sat in out collective backlog for quite some time (and also a few new releases).

Upcoming 2019 Games [11:11] – The Subseries

The next few months are looking phenomenal for new releases and there are so many new games I have on my wishlist right now. I don’t think there’s ever been a year I’ve had my eye on so many new releases before, but obviously I won’t have time to play them all at once.

100% Game Completions [11:11]

Until last summer, I was never really bothered about Trophy Hunting. I always thought it was a waste of time, but I felt a huge sense of achievement after finishing a few games last year by gaining all the achievements. My views have recently changed and I now feel like getting all the achievements in a game means I’ve done everything the developers wanted the player to experience as well as being able to get more enjoyment out of a game once the story is over. This year, I seem to have prioritised 100% completion for those games I’ve really enjoyed rather than finishing a single playthrough and leaving it alone.

Cleverly Used Soundtracks [11:11]

There are plenty of truly wonderful gaming soundtracks out there which can contribute immensely to our personal gaming experiences. I see so many posts on Twitter about great OSTs whether it be appreciation posts, discussions or favourites lists; this topic is certainly a common one – with good reason. However, whenever I see talk of soundtracks, it always seems to be about how well they are written or how suited they are to the game. This is [11:11] after all, so I thought I’d address the topic with a slightly different outlook. As I have a musical background myself, the way music is used in gaming is a topic I’m particularly fond of, so I racked my brains to think of 11 games that have a unique type of soundtrack and / or use of music – the kind that incorporates into the game itself, or those that really go the extra mile to fit into the game’s requirements.

Memorable Games From My Childhood [11:11]

Welcome back to another [11:11] post! So far I’ve talked about Games I Loved But Never Finished and JRPGs I Wish I Had Time To Play, so this time I thought I’d revisit the past and choose a selection of games I used to love when I was growing up.
