Feel free to leave a message or Multitap add, I'm always open, though unlikely to add back without some
kind of communication.
Forgive my tardiness with replies, you're not forgotten.
The Backloggery Listens playlist:
Platform list is in order of release.
Emulation is not counted*, nor are ROM hacks (too many and too disorganized to list), and all titles listed are on original hardware.
*Exceptions where noted (very few), and all arcade games are emulated.
Reproduction, translation, modification, and homebrew carts do
Duplicates (multi-platform titles that are not remakes or otherwise alternate versions) are marked as Null, pointing to one primary platform.
All difficulties are not required for "completion". For example, beating Doom on Nightmare, or FTL on Hard, would be considered "mastery". Decided case-by-case.
Achievements are not factored into completion, but can
be factored into mastery, as achievements themselves are often outside a game's usual scope.
+ 100% =
Titles that can't
be finished for one reason or another*, or that I have zero interest in touching** (yet still keep for whatever reason) will be marked as Null.
*Untranslated JRPGs for example.
**Very few. Typically sports.
Formerly owned titles will be marked as such, and will not be removed. If it was never played, it will also be marked as Null.
My requirement for a ★★★★★ rating is simple: If I can't think of a noteworthy criticism other than "too easy" (unless it's too easy to the point of not being engaging at all). You can always make your own challenge.

Perhaps I'll try to play the original System Shock soon before the remake, at least until I can purchase it myself. I've played the original before, but it's overwhelming with how much the interface has going on lol. Still, it's such a cool atmospheric game.
