    Do you eat your vegetables?

    I am far from a picky eater so I can actually eat most vegetables, as well as enjoy them. The problem for me though as a student is preparing and cooking them. I will gladly eat them and I do enjoy them, but, I hate doing it for myself. It is time-consuming and exhausting. Ever since I started...

    What's the weather like?

    Today the weather is very grey and miserable, because of the prominent display of clouds. There has been a slight amount of rain but not enough to stop people from going outside. It has been like this for most of the week and it is actually quite depressing not seeing the sun or a lovely blue...

    What are your favorite RPG Games?

    You would class Runescape as a role-playing game correct? If so then that is my favourite. I do not know this genre of games all that well but this was one of the first games I played as a child, and I have loved it ever since. It was my brother who introduced me to the game and although I do...

    Have you ever cried playing a game?

    I think is a very interesting question actually and not at all unusual. We seem to focus on the anger that games can provide us with but I believe crying is also closely related with this more common emotion. For me, I have cried on special occasions, usually in the final of FIFA tournament as...

    What game are you playing right now?

    The game I am playing right now is Football Manager 2020 as it allows me to control my team and guide them to great heights. I finally bought it a few weeks ago at a discounted price, as the game has been out for a while. I have taken control of Shrewsbury Team and my aim is to guide them into...

    Does anyone play browser games?

    I have always loved browsers games ever since I grew up with Miniclip and Mousebreaker, the latter one being the better for having 'Jumpers for Goalposts' of course. This was one of my favourite games and actually a few weeks ago I spent a good hour or so playing it, and can feel myself...

    Do you play games while charging your phone?

    I do not play games while my phone is charging, but I also rarely use my phone at all whilst it is charging. I don't like to damage the wire by constantly moving or stretching it. I also prefer to lie in bed comfortably with just my phone in my hands and the freedom to play the game. It is about...

    Are you able to control your anger and frustration while gaming?

    Gaming can be a very enjoyable experience but also very stressful and annoying at the same time. I used to get so angry playing FIFA that I had to play some relaxing music to calm me down, as it was so unhealthy shouting and getting angry all the time. I am quite a relaxed person nowadays but I...

    With the release of the PS5 later this year that potentially costs fans around £450, it is possibly the most expensive console a lot of gamers will have bought. So what is the most expensive you have ever bought? How did it make you feel? Can you get similar feelings from a cheaper or used...

    What are your favourite mobile games?

    I love gaming on my phone as it is portable and I always have it with me, so I do not have to think about carrying another device. I can also play a range of different games without the need of carrying the games too. What I don't like though is the small screen which makes some games difficult...

    Have your gaming skills proven useful in your career?

    I am not sure I have been able to utilize any skills from gaming in the real world as I prefer to game as a route for escapism. In fact, I think gaming for me has been counter-productive to my career if I was to take it literally. This is because in my job I need to be calm and patient... I used...

    Japanese grandma breaks gaming record

    This is incredibly impressive for her age. I think we as a society are guilty of assuming that the older generation is not engaged in gaming culture as they did not grow up with it, or at least in the same way as we did with increased opportunities. When I read the title of this article I...

    Do you game in the night or day?

    I prefer to play my games in the evening after I have enjoyed a pleasant day out in the sunshine and had my dinner. Doing so makes me feel like I have achieved more in the real world but also leave me with enough time to switch off and enjoy myself in the virtual world. However, in these...

    What are you doing during lockdown?

    I've had a lot more spare time so I have been playing various games but also watching plenty of things on Netflix, of course. But I also think it is important to be outside when possible and if it is safe to do, e.g. walking to the park alone whilst social distancing.

    Can you believe Runescape is still going?

    I definitely think offering Old School RS to the public has helped bring back old faces and revenue. I always liked the old game even before RS3 was a thing. I logged in recently to check it out and was overwhelmed by it and did not see the appeal. It reminded me too much of World of Warcraft...

    NHS consultant dies after testing positive for coronavirus

    I feel that the importance and the value of the NHS is constantly overlooked, in terms of receiving respect and funding. It is an invaluable service that does an excellent job all year round. To show respect it should be of upmost importance to test those working there for coronavirus...

    UK has the highest number of the outbreak with 563 recorded cases of COVID-19 related deaths

    The number of cases in my home country (England) is truly frightening. It is getting worse by the day despite the lockdown. We can only wonder how many of these innocent lives would have been saved, had these more serious measures been enforced earlier.
