I started playing games with a Nintendo 64 I got on my 5th Christmas. Goldeneye, Super Mario 64, Pokemon Stadium, Mario Party, and Diddy Kong Racing were my collection for a few years. A GameCube shortly after in 2002 with Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Mario Sunshine, and a Game Boy Advance SP in 2003 with Pokemon Crystal comprise much of my childhood leisure time.
My teenage gaming was engrossed in a PS2 with Resident Evil 4 and Kingdom Hearts 2, and a Nintendo DS with the Pokemon essentials. End of my high school career, you'd find me playing emulators on a modded PSP to pick off the classics I'd been too young for, or one of Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Rock Band 2 at my local library.
College found me seeking community in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Pokemon once more, this time as a knowing competitor. For a few years, I'd travel and compete, never to much acclaim but always for a great time. I wouldn't trade these experiences for the world. Much of my general purpose gaming transferred from consoles to PC at this time, while I worked a security job that "allowed" me to game on a laptop on the clock.
After I graduated, I was less involved in gaming, no longer being surrounded by friends sharing the interest. Once I'd settled into my career and got an apartment to myself, the urge to game returned. My partner returned from studying abroad, and much of our game time was spent on playing Stardew Valley, Monster Hunter: World, and Final Fantasy XIV together. Old School RuneScape became a mainstay once its mobile version released and I found friends similarly interested, and I spent several months deeply into Red Dead Redemption 2.
Covid found me jobless for a year, and I spent most of that time exploring old favorites like Final Fantasy XII and Dark Souls II once again. Jackbox, Fortnite, Among Us, and a rotation of other popular online games were my social bridge.
These days, I use Backloggery less to keep track of games to play, and more to keep record of what I've already played.
