About Us – A Friendly Gaming Community

Hey everyone, and welcome to Blog of Games – a friendly gaming community. Video games have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember – ever since me and my brothers received the NES for Christmas one year, along with Zelda, Mario, Punch-Out!! and a whole host of other timeless classics.

Throughout the years, I’ve owned various different weird and wonderful video game consoles, and maintained an interest in all things related to gaming. Though, as normal life started to take over, gaming naturally took a back seat.

Yet, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that a love of video games is something that will probably stay with me for life, and it’s better to embrace that fact rather than hide it. What better way is there to maintain an interest in gaming than to write about it?

A Friendly Gaming Community

I know there are lots of people out there who have been in a similar situation to me, feeling like they maybe should move on from gaming. Yet, I also know that most gamers do not fit the stereotypical gamer profile – withering away in darkened rooms for entire days, eating nothing but junk food.

If that is you, you are still welcome. There is no judgment here. I only hope to remove the stigma that is often synonymized with gaming, by creating an amiable environment to chat about a hobby you love.

Blog of Games - A friendly gaming community

It is my hope to create a friendly gaming community of like-minded gamers, where we can keep informed on all the latest gaming news and share our opinions, agreements, and disagreements on a whole load of different games across different gaming platforms.

Gaming Genres

The website will focus on multiple gaming genres – cyberpunk games, open world games, rpg games, and horror games, and so on. Some genres may be sparsely covered, like sports, for example. That’s not to say I’m not a fan, I mean, I’m definitely partial to a bit of FIFA now and then – but, there’s no story to banging in a few goals here and there, it’s purely fun. There’s no immersion.

This site focuses on the games that provide that immersion, that take you on a journey, games that make you feel like you’ve just jumped into the screen and become a real-life protagonist – whether it be a highly-strung, trailer-dwelling psychopath; a charming, medieval monster hunter; or a cheery, sword-wielding blitzball player (shout out to the greatest game ever).

Profile: I created this site initially as a passion project. I’ve always loved gaming, but was finding that I didn’t have as much time as I used to sink my teeth into all the games that I’d like to.

Blog of Games was a way that I could combine two things that I love – writing and gaming – whilst focussing on the genres that I really know, and generating some friendly discussion in the process.

If I had to choose my favorite game of all time (it’s a tough one), but I think I’d have to go with Final Fantasy X. That game brings all the warm nostalgic feelings and I’m sure it has the same effect on a lot of other gamers.

Everyone is welcome here, and if you’d like to get in touch about writing an article on a game that you love, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

  1. Hello!

    We’re Obscure Tales, an indie game developers. We haved launched a Kickstarter campaing for Lamentum, a pixel art survival horror game.

    We have been developing Lamentum for more than a year with a lot of coffee and sleepless nights. We love the classic survival horror games like SIlent Hill, Alone in the Dark, Resident Evil… We know that Lamentum is a niche game, but we love this genre! . With this campaign we want to grow our community and make our project possible.
