Read Play Blog: September

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 & Read Me Away.

This month’s question:
What is your preferred gaming platform?

I’ve actually barely played games on consoles. Growing up I had a Gameboy Colour, and until we got a PC that was the only medium I ever played games on. I think my preferred gaming platform now is definitely the PC, mainly because it’s just so easy. Moving a camera with the mouse feels way more natural to me than having to control it with a stick on a controller. There are also so much more games released on PC, and Steam is my very best buddy. I also still love to play my old Pokémon and Harry Potter games on my Gameboy Advance or Nintendo DS.

Currently playing:

Since school started again I’ve barely had time to play games (although I somehow did find enough time to read like crazy). I’ve mainly been playing Hearthstone because it’s such a casual and fun game to play between studying. The best thing about Hearthstone is that it’s free – even though you can pay for the collectible cards, I personally find it way more satisfying to play for them.
