Last year I posted my first #AniMay post talking about the last 11 anime I watched. Since I enjoyed a break from writing about gaming, I thought I’d revisit the topic again this year. I haven’t watched as much anime over the past 12 months as I did the year before, and I’ve actually only just seen enough to feature in this post – but unfortunately, I don’t feel like this list is as strong as last year’s. This is mainly due to the fact that me and my boyfriend have had a preference to watch films instead, therefore limiting our anime time.
I was recently nominated by Megan, A Geeky Gal, to participate in another blogging tag – 5 Games That Have Had The Biggest Impact On My Life! In this post, I will talk about the games that have been the most significant in my life thus far. I wrote a post recently on the Twitter trend “Games To Get To Know Me” in which I picked up on this topic already, so this time around I’ll be talking more about how the game has impacted me personally rather than talking about the actual games themselves. You can take a look at my “Games To Get To Know Me” post here if you’d like to hear more about the games in question.
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!
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.
The Hakuoki Otome Visual Novel adventure continues with Edo Blossoms, the second and final section to the Hakuoki Shinkai: Fuukaden series released on PC by Idea Factory in March 2018. I played the first half, Kyoto Winds, back in May so I’ve been intrigued to finish the whole story… And now I have, 100% completed in fact.
I can’t believe it’s time to wrap up the 30 Day Anime Challenge already! This post contains the final group of questions created by A Geeky Gal. It has been an incredible blogging journey and I’m so glad I’ve taken part, what’s more is that I’ve actually stuck to the schedule this time and I’m so proud of myself!
Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds is a Visual Novel rereleased for PC and PlayStation Vita in 2017 by Idea Factory. The game is of the Otome genre with a rich story set in 1860s Japan.
There are many games in the Hakuoki series, the first being released for PS2 in 2008, but the series spreads over a variety of consoles including the PSP and Nintendo DS. Hakuoki Shinkai: Fuukaden was released for PS4 (Japan only) last year and is also coming to Nintendo Switch in September 2018. This version contains both Kyoto Winds and Edo Blossoms.
