You may have noticed, but I have been on hiatus over the past several months, for which I apologize profusely. I wanted to thank those who continue to stop by and catch up on my posts. I started this blog back in spring of 2019 and I was writing so much, so frequently, that eventually I hit burnout about two months after my PAX West trip last year.
In addition, my hobby interests have turned away from gaming and writing to other things for a time, namely Tarot (the happy fault of Sayonara Wild Hearts), drawing, and online community building. I tend to go through periods of “hobby rotation” where I’m really into one thing or another for a half year or so and then move to something else, eventually circling back to an intense focus on gaming. I do plan on writing more in the future when the burnout wears off.

I’ll have Part Two up in the first half of next week, then Part Three the week after, and a final full post of everything together shortly after that with any requested edits. Plus there’s a special addition to this project that may be in the works – details to come!
Without further ado, let’s take a look at the first 5 games chosen by the gaming blogger community as literary classics…
