Star Wars: Empire at War
I'm a good chunk through the Rebellion campaign, and I think it's the Star Wars setting more than the actual gameplay that's keeping me playing.

Parascientific Escape: Cruise in the Distant Seas
Enjoying this more than expected. It's unabashedly a 999 knockoff, but it manages to forge its own identity.

I'm liking this so far. The learning curve is just right, the gameplay is flexible, I'm a big fan of this style of graphics, and it feels Trek-worthy.

man, back when I played EaW a LOT was before I had Steam at all... and honestly, I didn't even actually own it... at the time I was mostly pirating PC games... I do not do that anymore though. my pirating days are (mostly) done.

JWE is fun... sometime a bit difficult but very rewarding... takes a lot of work for some things but it ends up satisfying. can't say the same for JWE2. that game is a mess and far too hard.

I did so enjoy EaW back in the day... I wouldn't mind revisiting it someday for sure.

I also definitely added more than I finished... but I think I liked everything I played to completion.

Yeah, well... at least you finished Phantasy Star II. That felt great, right?

What an absolutely atrocious year for my Backloggery, and gaming in general for me.

I tried, gave up on, and removed more than half the games I actually finished. Most of what I finished was average at best. And between Pinball FX3, Capcom Arcade Stadium, and one last round of purchases before the closure of the Wii U and 3DS eShops, I added more than twice the number of games that I finished.

That said, I've been spending more time making games than playing them, trying to wrap up my responsibilities on Make a Good Mega Man Level 3. I also joined Letterboxd at the beginning of the year; in the process of cataloguing the movies I've seen, I was reminded just how much I love movies, so an unusually disproportionate amount of my relaxation time went toward watching instead of playing.

I'm hoping 2024 will be a little more balanced, though. I think I'm past the point of pushing myself to try games outside my interests and comfort zone, especially if it's because they're popular or on sale. I can watch playthroughs on YouTube if I want to get up to speed on what other people like. Gaming has always been a way for me to lose myself in a fictional world and blow off steam, and somewhere along the way it became a cultural literacy project. I need to get back to playing games I *want* to play, not games I feel like I *should* play.

Right back at you I just wanted to expand my multitap and I thought your backloggery to be very interesting. Have a good one.
