In case you haven’t read my 2020 Reading List, here’s the deal: A while ago I updated this sweet little site of mine with reading, watching and currently playing lists respectively. I did so quickly and I did so in an attempt to give this blog more shape and to get a better connection to everyone who may stumble upon it.
Well, I felt inspiration strike this morning and I want to do this a little differently, now: Instead of adding specific titles to the list I’m gonna go more by concept and ideas and general categorizations. This way I hope to expand my horizons a little bit.
The world of media is huge and plentiful and there may be books I’ve never heard of before. I may only find them by opening myself up to broader options. It may also help me get some recommendations by people who are more familiar with the things I have not yet discovered.
So: Here’s my new and improved reading list for 2020 and some rules you may or may not want to follow but that would make this more of a challenge.
So the deal with the 2020 Gaming List is basically the same: I try to collect movies I’d want to watch not by specific titles but by more conceptional categories.
This is going to be a very short list, since a lot of games take a long time to finish. I might add some in the future.
- If you feel like it, feel free to join in or create your own list. I remember these sort of monthly challenges from my time as a book blogger and I thought it would be a nice idea.
- I try and keep this list updated by what I’m currently playing, what I’ve played and the links to the posts regarding the pieces I’ve played. I may also add or remove entries as inspiration strikes.
- Entries shouldn’t double.
- There used to be scoring systems for these sorts of things to track your success and compete with others. This isn’t really set-up as a competition. You can however track your success however you want and I would love for you to share your games with me!
- Please leave recommendations for either of my picks, for new entries or for plain enjoyment. I’d love to see them.
- You obviously have to finish the whole game for it to be considered played. You don’t have to play your way through the entire series, though.
I know this is kind of hard to do with continous games, like Harvest Moon or Multiplayer titles. I’m not sure how to rearrange the rule, though.
I do think that you need to play a game for a certain time, to get a feeling for it but I cannot quite put a number on it. Feel free to make suggestions.
- Not sure about what I’m gonna do with things I quit – which happens quite often – but I may open a list of rejects below or make a new post at the end of the year with a total and some sort of resumee.
2020 Gaming List – Picks
- A game made by a single person
- A flash game
- Something off itch.io
- A dating sim
- A strategy game
- A linear game
- A point-and-click-adventure
- A multiplayer-game
- Something with a rare gameplay mechanic
- A game primarily made by women
So … these are my contenders for my 2020 gaming list. I know I’ve started this one a little late into the year but it felt like too good of an idea to put it off for 9 months.
Like many people in these trying times I am currently stuck at home so this might be a nice idea to keep my mental sanity up.
