About the blog

polaroid, ohotograph, book, 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die

One day in February 2013, Kim came across a book that listed the top 1,001 video games released between 1970 and 2010 that everyone should play. And after a conversation with Ben in the pub over a pint, she thought: would it be great if we could do just that?

Then she realised how completely unrealistic it was.

A full-time job, busy family and adult responsibilities may have forced her to put her dreams of video-game-stardom to bed but somehow she still manages to fit in a few precious hours of gaming each week. Pete and Ethan, her other-half and stepson, each make a great player two.

You know what they say about XP coming with age. Achievement unlocked: made it to the later levels in life and still gaming.

For the full story on how Later Levels came to be, take a look at this post.

  1. I wish I could get my wife interested in playing some video games with me. I have always been a gamer played everyday when I was a kid but now I don’t seem to have enough free time to actually get into a game and enjoy it. (kind of depressing I know). I am enjoying reading your blog and will continue to. Loved the creative Christmas posts!


    • I’m pretty lucky in that my other-half and stepson play video games too – although that means it can be difficult getting on the PC or one of the consoles, because someone is always using them! If your wife likes watching movies, how about getting her to try something cinematic with a strong story? Never give up hope… πŸ˜‰


      • Yes you are lucky. I think she may be open to the idea of playing a game with me if it were something with a strong story line. Maybe I will try that. I’ll let you know how that turns out. Thanks for the advice!
