If you have been following my blog for a while you may know that next to my passion for writing, I am an avid gamer. I have been playing video games for as long as I can remember and they have also been part of what spurs my imagination.
Video games come in all shapes and sizes and I think there is something for everyone out there. I am not tied to one particular genre. I love anything that can leave me lost in another world for a while, or a game that is simply relaxing and can take my mind off of stresses for a some time.
Video games have got a bad rep over the years; I do not know if this is still the case. I do recall being judged on spending my time playing games, which I do not understand. One could argue that watching a TV show or movie is just as much a “waste of time”. Do what you love I say and I love being able to delve into the mind of a creator in the form of a well constructed game.
My heart always has and always will be with point and click adventure games. I love to solve puzzles and progress, uncovering secrets along the way. Being taken on a journey with my favourite characters has always been a cherished past time for me.
The point of my post is that I have started a streaming channel on Twitch. There are a couple of reasons I have done this. Firstly, it is to share my love of gaming with others who love it too. Secondly, I am a very introverted person and I am hoping by putting myself out there it will help get me out of my shell and encourage me to be less shy. I really want to learn to be more open in as many ways as possible and so I thought I would give it a try. It might be something that I decide to take on as a hobby, but for now I am just trying it out to see if it is for me. Either way it will not prevent me from blogging. That is always my priority.
The games I tend to gravitate towards to are ones with immersive story lines, games that require a bit of brain power to progress in and also games that I can play without much thought so I can relax and enjoy. There will be a sprinkle of more fun and mindless games too. I try and stay away from scary content as I am not the bravest of hearts, but I want to try a bit of everything because there is so much out there. One of the first games I will be streaming is the newly released Detroit: Become Human, which I am really looking forward to playing.
I invite you to join me on my streaming journey. I would appreciate it immensely if you would follow me. I think it would be awesome to be able to interact with you live and show off a side of my personality that I might not be able to get across through my writing. I know video games are not for everyone, so I am not asking anybody to go out of their way. Any support would be appreciated in any form.
If gaming is not something you are interested, do not fear, I shall be back to my usual writings following this post.
Once again, thank you for being here with me on this journey and thank you for letting me try out new things. If you do give me a follow, let me know so I can be sure to thank you.
Until next time, Game On!
