The Games I Played in 2022.

However, I am now back and ready to share my geeky hobbies with you.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at the games I finished this year!

5 Horror Games I Want To Play.

Long time readers of this blog know that I’m a bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to horror games and that is incredibly frustrating. I love the horror genre in other entertainment mediums. Horror novel? Love them. TV show? I’ll binge it. Video game? I’ll be lucky if I last five minute minutes. I’m not sure what it is about horror video games but they seem to affect me more than a Stephen King novel ever could and I’ve read Pet Sematary. The worst part is, I actually really want to play horror games and enjoy the experience. So today, whilst I’m trying to gather my courage, I thought I would share with you five horror games that I would love to play.

Replaying My Childhood: Sonic the Hedgehog.

Recently, I’ve decided to revisit the games I played during my childhood, as I’ve been wanting to indulge in some nostalgic feelings. The games I want to play will range from games that I had played on the Sega Megadrive to a few of the earlier games released on the Xbox 360. I will be honest, there will be times I won’t be able to play some of the games on the original console I played them on but I will try and get the closest experience possible. So, let’s take a trip down memory lane as I replay the first game I ever played, Sonic the Hedgehog.

First Impressions – Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Long time readers of this log will know I am not always playing the most hyped games, at the point of their releases. In fact, it can take me a couple of years to pick these well received games up and Animal Crossing: New Horizon is no exception. I’ll be honest, I was meaning to pick it up shortly after its release but unfortunately it was sold out everywhere and sp I completely forgot about it. Thanks to a work colleague, I was reminded in April of its existence and so I finally picked it up. It quickly became clear that New Horizons is going to be a bit of a time sink, so today I thought I would share my initial thoughts on it.
