My apologies for the lack of posts. I have been busy with songwriting lately. However, I managed to complete Root Letter, a game which I grew fond of and I enjoyed the genre a lot (visual novel games). For one, I enjoy books and good stories. Visual novel games have it all for me at the moment: light gameplay and not too mentally strenuous. Because after a long day, the last thing I want to do is play a difficult game. I must say I am very happy with my time management for games. I learned that opting for casual games actually balanced my stress level. But I must confess, I do get the urge to play more difficult games from time to time.
Due to a decrease in gaming time, I became somewhat of a game collector. Still looking for those hidden gems but probably will not enjoy it to its max. So, I’ll share a list of games that I have been looking at:
- Zero Escape: The Nonary Games
2. Exist Archive : The Other Side of the Sky
3. Assault Suit Leynos
I know most of them are Playstation games. I am not at all bias towards a particular gaming platform, I just can’t afford to own every system at the moment and have time to appreciate it. And my gaming passion is not about collecting games, I am actually collecting ideas. We are living in the Information Age and I just happened to grow up in a video game culture just like many of you folks. New ideas are not dead–they are just delivered in the form of video games.
My final thought for the post, I’m almost done with Nier Automata. My brother and friend are bugging me about the game because I am taking forever to complete it. I have a lot of things to say about it, but it takes time to gather my thoughts. I am a bit overwhelmed with the game because it’s so philosophical. Big concepts require time to digest. I am finding myself more and more taking frequent breaks to pause and reflect on what I am playing (I do this with books as well). I will not 100 percent the game because I just don’t have time. But my next post will surely be about Nier Automata.
Until next time, thanks for reading!
