Read Play Blog is a meme about video games and books, posted every 16th of the month. Bloggers are encouraged to answer a discussion question, and recommend a video game that is similar to a book they liked. Hosted by Happy Indulgence Books & Read Me Away.
Read Play Blog is back for another month of gaming! This month’s question is:
Show Us Your Gaming Setup!
I mainly game on my PC and my 3DS which is pictured below, I had to clean up my desk beforehand haha. My computer here is actually due for an upgrade, it’s the first computer I built myself (or with the help of the boyfriend) back in 2011. It struggles with all of the latest games but I still love it dearly!
Recommendation: The Stanley Parable (PC)
This game is so much fun, it really breaks the conventions of what a game is about. You’re an office worker who does a repetitive job day in and day out, and all of your fellow workers have disappeared. As you venture out into the world, you can choose to obey or disobey the narrator at certain points and explore the hilarious narrative and multiple endings that will ensue. You’ll start and restart this game many times as you choose different pathways. Quite a creative game, the narrator reminds me of the berating GlaDoS from Portal.
Get it on Steam here.
Currently Playing: None
I’m not actually playing any games at the moment which is surprising. I think I got bored of Animal Crossing New Leaf, and I check it every once in a while, but otherwise most of my time these days is consumed with reading, blogging and catching up on shows. I can’t wait for the next Game of Thrones episode to be released though, then I’ll be playing that for a while.
Next month’s question: Which video game would you want to live in or be the main character of?– post your answer, recommendation & currently playing on the 16th or anytime during the month and link up!
