This last month has been a very strange time for us all. I know a lot of people are finding the lockdown incredibly difficult, which is totally understandable, but I’m left feeling a little guilty for somewhat enjoying hiding myself away from the world. There’s no doubt I’m a complete shut in – I’ve only left the house on one occasion in the past 7 weeks and I’m not even beginning to feel stir crazy. Unfortunately, my boyfriend had to go back to work as an essential worker, so I’ve been hiding out in my family home for the past 4 weeks without seeing him (which has definitely been the worst part), however, we have been spending a lot more time gaming online together than usual.
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.
Tsumihoroboshi is the sixth chapter in the Higurashi, When They Cry Series, and the answer arc to Chapter 1: Onikakushi. The original visual novel was released by 07th Expansion in Japan in 2005, and was recently released in English for PC on 14th June 2018.
As Chapter 6 is the answer arc for Chapter 1: Onikakushi, it is important that you play Chapter 1 first. I also advise that you play all the chapters in order for the best possible experience. You can see my reviews for Onikakushi, Watanagashi, Tatarigoroshi, Himatsubushi and Meakashi here.
I can’t believe it’s the end of the month already! Between my busy work schedule and seeing my boyfriend every weekend (twice as much as usual), I’ve barely had any time to myself to jump into solo gaming. I’ve still managed to fit a few things in though including the rebranding of my blog, although there are a few changes that still need to be made!
