I’ve reviewed a few visual novel/dating sim type games so far, and I’ve talked about The Sims here and there, but I’ve finally added an actual gaming category!
If you’re only here for the books, don’t worry, I’m still going to post mostly about books and reading. I would just also like to try posting a little bit more about games now that I’m interested in trying more of them.
That’s why I wanted to make a little announcement, to make sure no one gets confused and to talk about what sorts of things I’m planning to post, especially since these are the types of games I think my fellow readers might enjoy!
What Type of Games Will I Post About?
The types of games I’m planning to talk about are visual novels, dating sims, and other similar story/character/choice-based interactive games. I also enjoy The Sims franchise and may have the occasional post about those games.
What I’m NOT planning on talking about are fighting, shooting, action-packed, stressful, time-pressured types of games. I get very easily stressed out by games that require me to hit the right buttons at the right time, in the right direction, etc., so I don’t play those. I will probably also not be talking about tycoon or other similar simulation games.
Aside from The Sims, I plan to focus on sci-fi/fantasy/paranormal games, the same as I do with books.
I’ll only be talking about PC games and maybe the occasional app since I don’t own any video game consoles.
How Often Will I Post?
I’m planning to do posts about upcoming releases every two months. I’ll do reviews whenever I find something good. I also have a few Sims-related posts planned. So this will depend on how many games I’m able to find (and afford). Probably one or two posts a month for now.
If you follow me but you’re not at all into games, that’s fine! Don’t feel obligated to read any posts you’re not interested in!
If you happen to have stumbled upon this post and are ONLY interested in games, you should be able to follow that category exclusively by inputting https://blog.kristenburns.com/gaming/ into your feed reader.
And if you’re into both or have never tried a visual novel or dating sim type game but are curious, then great! I look forward to hearing your thoughts about books and games :-)
