I noticed on a couple of blogs that I read, that bloggers were writing their responses for a gaming version of Have You Ever? and I thought it was such a cool idea, I thought I would give it a go! This version was created by Michelle, over at A Geek Girl’s Guide, so please gocheck out her responses. OK, let’s take a look atHave Your Ever? gaming edition!
Rage quit a game?
Yep, on a couple of occassions. The one that really stuck in my mind was Assassin’s Creed III. I bought this game on release day and was really excited to get stuck into the next installment of one of my favourite gaming franchises. Although the game was a little slow and buggy, Iwas doing fine… until I hit the sailing sections. These clunky and difficult missions not only had you fighting your enemies navy but your ship controls as well. After failing the same mission several times, I quit Assassin’s Creed III and didn’t return to it until 2018, when I
suffered played through it on PC.
Earned all achievements in a game?
Only four games and all have been on PC: Fran Bow, Her Story, Stories Untold and Telltale’s The Walking Dead Season 2. I’m not really an achievement hunter but if there is a game I enjoy, then I will try and get as many of the achievements as I can… until I get distracted by another game.
Pulled an all-nighter gaming?
Honestly, no. I’ve stayed up until 4am with games like Total War: Medieval II and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion but I’ve always been able to get a few hours sleep, so I guess they don’t count.
Livestreamed your gaming?
Only once, on Twitch, that was Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China. I had a week off work and thought it would be fun to give it a go. Unfortunately my Internet speed isn’t really up forstreaming, so it will be a while before I try again. Still, the experience gave me a greater appreciation for those people who do stream- its a lot harder than it looks!
Pre-ordered a game?
Yep, several times. The first time I pre-ordered a game was back in 2011, when I pre-ordered The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrimfor the Xbox 360, a purchase I did not regret. My most recent pre-order was Kingdom Hearts III, which was a purchase that… let’s just say did not live up to my expectations.
Bought a game and never played it?
What?! Bought a game and never played it? Never!…OK, yes this has happened to me and yes, its has happened recently. I have a backlog problem and I’m not ashamed to admit it.
Been jumpscared by a horror game?
OK, I have a problem with horror games. I love the genre, I just can’t play them. Mainly because of the jump scares. The last time I played a horror game was back in Ocotber last year, when Khinjarsi challenged me to play Outlast. I lasted a total of thirteen minutes, before a jump scare made me quit the game and uninstall it.
Had a set squad for a specific game?
Not really. I try and play around with team and squads each time I play a game. Although, I will always have Yuna in Final Fantasy X party and Eevee will always be in my party, regardless of what Pokemon game I’m playing.
Bought a game on multiple platforms?
….Yes. I currently own Final Fantasy X on Playstation 2, Playstation 4, Steam and Playstation Vita. And yes, I want to buy it for my Nintendo Switch as well.
Got a console for the games specifically?
I absolutely did not buy my Nintendo Switch because Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee! was jsut released and I could finally have Eevee as my starter Pokemon. Nope, that totally did not happen.
