2020 Gaming List

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 …

Some Actual Video Games For Women (And men, and anybody who’d want to play them, really)

This morning I was oh so innocently scrolling through twitter, as I found somebody tweeting about an article about “Video Games for Women”. The article in question was coming from a German Lifestyle-Blog mainly gearde towards, well, women and it could not have been more disappointing .My first instinct was to write about this article, drag it, talk about how toxic it actually was and how it was playing into so many stereotypes. But I won’t.Yes, the listicle mainly lists mobile games (Cake Shop 2, for example … Because women cook and bake you guys! So feminist!) and Sudoku (yes … not even a game here). Yes, it’s poorly written. And yes, the research is incredibly poorly done … But again I won’t. Here’s why: The article is from November. No reason to flog a dead horse. Since then they’ve added a disclaimer to the article. It’s as poorly written as the piece itself but to me it shows that the creators didn’t actually have any ill will in publishing it. I’d like to believe …

3 Multiplayer Games for Single Players

I’m not a huge multiplayer. I prefer Single Player Games. There’s several reasons for that: Fisrt of all, I enjoy a good story, something that usually gets lost in multiplayer games. They’re usually more about gameplay and that’s totally fine! We as gamers are such a diverse community, not just in race, gender and sexuality but also in tastes and priorities.Multiplayer games are also more about competition, something that isn’t quite my thing. I usually want to explore a game on my own, at my own time and so on. And lastly there’s something very deterring about having complete strangers on voice chat. I am so sorry but I do not wish to be screamed at by 12-year olds. For a long time I’ve avoided anything tagged „multiplayer“ with a passion and accuracy and could never bring to anything of real importance. But I’m trying to change that: I’d like to be more social in my anti-social endevours. So here are a few games I’ve kinda grown to love even though there not usually up …
