Blog Report Card II: Heading Towards 2019

With the year ending soon, I often reflect whether I want to keep going forth with this blog. Keeping a blog requires extra mental energy on my part. I wish I could just focus on creating content for this blog and quit my actual job, but then my boss would panic. Well, I can’t complain.  My bills get paid.

So, what’s coming up next year? Well, a gamer will always be a gamer. There is no other hobby I enjoy more than gaming. So, I continue to play games and continue to write about games in the following three categories:

  • Rambling about games
  • My gaming adventures
  • Reviews (even though they are more like essays or short summaries)

My objective for this blog is really simple–to break down that introvert walls. If you are like me, it’s hard to make friends, genuine friends, especially if you come across as shy.  I am happy if anyone enjoy reading my gaming adventures. I know that people rarely care about my experience with games but to me, it gives me so much happiness and joy to write them. So thank you to those who take the time to read.  It means a lot to me. Writing about games not only helps me articulate my thoughts, but it also helps me become a better writer (English is a hard language to master). I like to do things that are beneficial. Overall, I hope I can offer a different insight into gaming.   I know that my writing tends to be a bit more philosophical. I hope this doesn’t offend too many people. I’m not here to start war, but a dialogue.  Everyone has an opinion, including the quiet gal like myself.

Next year for this blog, I intend on covering the following games:

Shenmue II

The Silver Case

Final Fantasy VIII

Siren

Undertale

Root Letter

Pandora’s Tower

Drakengard (I have to complete Drakengard so I can discuss the game with him. He’s always trying to open his big mouth and spoil the story for me. I get so angry because I want to experience the story for myself!)

There are plenty of older games that I have yet to explore and play.  Playing older games is more worthwhile. I think older games have more heart and soul put into them, particularly single-player games. I don’t care much for multi-player games for many reasons: 1) I am actually extremely shy to play with other people which is why I don’t have many gaming friends. 2) Playing single-player games is relaxing to me. As I mentioned several times, I take my time and I am really slow and completing games. 3) I like to be immersed in a video game. If I am talking to people on the mic, I can’t hear the sound effects and music in the game.  Music is very important to me.

And lastly, yes write more poems. I like writing poems. Next blogging year, I will be more active. Now I go back to spending time with my new-found love. I am always thinking about Shenmue lately.

Until next time,  Happy early New Year!  Next year will be a great year! I am pumped!
