About the blog


floppy disk, Later Levels, the blog

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, they thought: wouldn’t it be great if we could do just that?

Then they realised how completely unrealistic it was.

Full-time jobs, busy families, numerous pets and adult responsibilities may have forced them to put their dreams of streaming-stardom to bed but somehow they still manage to fit in a few precious hours for video games each week. Achievement unlocked: made it to the later levels in life and still gaming.

You know what they say about becoming older and wiser? XP comes with age.

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!

  2. I like your site! So much stuff that I’m jealous πŸ˜€ I always wanted more subjects and things to write, but unfortunately I’m only team of one. Did you really try to play all the 1001 games? πŸ™‚

    • Yeah… which was a ridiculous idea when I think about it now, because there was no way we had enough time to make it through so many games ha ha! But if we hadn’t had that conversation then this blog wouldn’t have started, so I guess there’s a silver lining.

      With regard to subjects, write about whatever inspires you when the mood takes you. Most of my stuff is about gaming but occasionally there are posts about family, work or good causes if I feel I’ve got something to say. It seems as though you’re doing well though: I wish I could write more reviews like you do! πŸ™‚
