Gaming Writer’s Saturday: Skyrim vs. The Witcher 3

Gaming Writer’s Saturday: Skyrim vs. The Witcher 3

Apparently I’m one of the few people who didn’t enjoy the Witcher 3 much. The critically acclaimed and multi-awarded game didn’t manage to hold my attention for very long. I played it for several weeks (so about 60-70 hours of gameplay), and then promptly returned to Skyrim which at that time I had already replayed at least half a dozen of times. Every now and then, when I voice that unpopular opinion, I collect an interesting array of reactions: from…

Gaming Writer’s Saturday: Fallout 76

Gaming Writer’s Saturday: Fallout 76

I’ve been a fan of Fallout series since almost the very beginning of the series, back in 1998 when Black Isle Studios made the first two installments of the game. The post-apocalyptic world, so unlike the contemporary lousy YA renditions, mesmerized with the mix of great storytelling, complete freedom, and that pinch of an absurd humor that fitted right in with the world changed by the nuclear bombs. Then, Bethesda Studios know of its Elder Scrolls series, took over Fallout…

Gaming Writer’s Saturday – Divinity: Original Sin 2

Gaming Writer’s Saturday – Divinity: Original Sin 2

A year ago, I was writing about Divinity Original Sin, and how the game surprised me with its rich storyline and great writing. I was already waiting for the second installment of the game, having backed it on Kickstarter in 2015, and even though the game came out later than I expected, it was definitely worth the wait. Being a backer meant that I had access to the in-development version of the game, but even though I couldn’t wait for…

Gaming Writer’s Saturday: Banished

Gaming Writer’s Saturday: Banished

I haven’t been playing many new games lately, and the one I seem to be coming back a lot is Banished. The game was recommended to me by my ex-coworker, and even though I got it a long time ago, it took me some time to get into this entertaining and demanding sandbox-type game.

Gaming Writer’s Saturday: The Flame in the Flood

Gaming Writer’s Saturday: The Flame in the Flood

The Flame in the Flood was one of the games I found through GOG.com. The graphics looked interesting, and so did the game play featured in the trailer: sail your raft, craft all the necessary items, and survive the wilderness. How could I resist this game for long?

Gaming Writer’s Saturday: Stardew Valley

Gaming Writer’s Saturday: Stardew Valley

Even though my favorite video games are the ones offering rich stories and immersive worlds, I also like to play managerial games from time to time as they provide unique challenges, encourage planning and problem-solving. So every once a while a managerial game sucks me in for long hours, and this time it was Stardew Valley’s turn.

Gaming Writer’s Saturday: Sunless Sea

Gaming Writer’s Saturday: Sunless Sea

I would have never come across Sunless Sea if not for GOG’s Summer Sale. The game popped up on the list and its cover graphic looked intriguing, so I had to learn about the game more. The trailer was climatic, the graphics beautiful and creating a dark but enchanting atmosphere, and the fellow gamers’ reviews offered a fresh approach to a rogue-like genre.

5 Ways Video Games Can Help Your Writing

5 Ways Video Games Can Help Your Writing

If you follow my Gaming Writer’s Saturday posts, you already know I love video games and share my time between writing and gaming (and few other things), but those two hobbies are not as separated from each other as one would think. I play video games whenever I feel uninspired or when I need to fuel my creativity, and in a way, video games are a part of my writing process. They might come before I even write the first…
