Papers, Please
The premise is awesome and I've been intending to play this for some time... But the interface is terrible.

A guy comes without documents and you must interrogate him. You click his face, nothing; you click the rules book, nothing... Turns out you must a) open the rules book, b) click the "no documents" rule, c) click the EMPTY TABLE and finally d) click the suddenly available "interrogate" button. How much for a functional context dialogue box?
Now it seems I got the grips of it... Trying the small tables first. Achievements: 6 / 12 (50%)

☆☆★★★ Nice idea overall but some of the pieces are tougher than others to put to good use (especially the straight one), and luck weights in depending of how many of those are at disposal. Also, the inability to mess with pieces once they click hinders any possibility of "working setup" optimization.

Quite interesting, and reminds me of my beloved Yggdra Union in a way. Love the portraits art style--animation and hit detection are a bit stiff though. Also, strong women. Some quality of life issues hinder the game's flow, like menus not showing more info at the same time and (unbelievably since the very first FF) attacks not always auto targeting after an enemy dies... Some BS in battles as well: poison damage is heavier than direct attacks, char levels mean more than pure stats...

Quite interesting but cryptic as fuck. The soundtrack rocks though--in an unpredictable way.

★★★★★ Playing it right after FireRed is refreshing due to having May and Wally instead of an annoying rival alone.
Same jazz of all the others: looong levels with no checkpoints and dragging sections to allow the player to recover from the tough sections.

★★★★★ The most important thing you should know: don't research Alien Origins before being completely ready! o.o
Super dragging. Exploration.

It's very... Japanese. I mean it. Liking it much more than Awakening.

★★★★★ I've been urging to play it again for some time now... fantastic game.

Master of Unlocking: Majority of games are completed

Sounds like you've got a good plan as well! I hope you get to experience some cool games! Sega might be primarily known for their work on Sonic the Hedgehog, but they gave us plenty of other classics that truly deserve more love.

In regards to the games you don't enjoy, I can definitely understand your mindset there. Just be sure to drop the ones that are causing you genuine frustration or anger. Even if the game is widely considered a great one by others, if you yourself aren't enjoying it, it's not worth sticking with it. As Reggie Fils-Amie once said, "If it's not fun, why bother?"

Good luck to you as well! You can do it!

Thank you! My plans mostly revolve around taking care of as many Steam games as possible. They take up the majority of my unfinished games, so making that number go down would definitely be nice! What about you?
