I really hope you enjoyed FFIX! That is my favorite PS1 Final Fantasy games and in the top tier of favorites for the series. It has so many callbacks to previous generations and I think it refines what made Final Fantasy great. I was glad to watch you go through the game so quickly!

True, if it's not worth playing or you won't enjoy it then you don't really need to know about it, but some of the best games I've played have been pretty niche. Gotta wonder what you're missing sometimes, y'know?

Well, I know what I don't like - any sort of racing, sim, puzzle, or fighting games - so...pretty much anything outside of those that I've not experienced yet, really! I've actually picked up a lot of titles outside of my typical interests that I want to try (the Uncharted trilogy, Horizon: Zero Dawn, etc) but just haven't gotten around to yet. I picked up Metro in the PSN sales too...I haven't played a traditional FPS since the original Medal of Honor on PS1. Was thinking about Titanfall 2, too. I think it's mostly Western games and indie titles that I'm focusing on, although I got bored with Child of Light. There's so much out there!

Congratulations on beating Super Metroid! I got my SNES rather late and that is one of the first games I really ever beat for the system. I really enjoyed the atmosphere, controls and the overall feel of the game. It is a fantastic game!

I am also glad that I inspired you when it comes to your Steam games. I won't take credit for discovering the idea as Drumble mentioned it as a New Year's Resolution. But, I will take credit for it destroying my Backlog. For the years I have used it, it has been fantastic. It helps me beat games and makes purchasing a new game that more exciting. I believe in you. You can fight the Bak'laag!

Crash Bandicoot has been....interesting. I am less than 10% into the game, but I was a little hesitant about the game. The save system is like utterly broken, but the gameplay has been fairly enjoyable. I had low expectations going into the game, but it is slowly surprising me. Maybe it's not so bad? Maybe?

--Personal Note--

Congratulations to Super Metroid, my 425th beaten game!

Part of me wanted MGSV to score this milestone, but taking over a month and a half and over 100 hours playtime, it was for the best that I didn't sandbag it any longer. Still, it casually made its way to a spot in my all-time top 5 games. I'm glad (and slightly surprised) games can still impress me like that! The MGS series already has a place among my milestones, given to MGS2HD last year (another game in my top 5 favs), so it's more appropriate to let a different series take the honour.

Super Metroid: one of the most celebrated speedrun games, and part of what is arguably the SNES first-party trifecta with Super Mario World and A Link to the Past. I had beaten the other two games years ago, so it's nice to finally this one. I didn't quite like it as much as the other two, but it's still a great game with tight sound design and exciting boss battles.

What got me to this milestone so quickly were the many short Steam titles I've added from the Humble Freedom Bundle so far, but there's still plenty of them left including more substantial games I've left off. Those will take a back-seat until I straighten out my current backlog a bit more. My next Steam addition will begin to address the early Hitman series in my hidden backlog. After that, I will borrow a Markies-style progression where I beat 3 Steam games before adding the next new title. My count won't drop otherwise!

Once I beat Hitman, since I can't resist testing my limits, I plan on adding more Virtual Console titles before going deep into RPG territory in a few weeks.

Well, the original PS3 titles are totally worth experiencing still! Different publishers means you get different characters, and the dialogue is...toned down, a bit, for the Re;Birth titles. Blanc isn't quite as foul-mouthed, anyway.

Thanks! A find myself in the minority when it comes to disliking a lot of titles...I'm both very easy and very difficult to please, aha. I've been playing JRPGs almost exclusively for years, and I've only recently started branching out a little to try things on Steam etc. You've played a lot of stuff I've never even heard of!

Yeah, Fire Man is very mean. When I had Drumble & Try4ce do the Mega Man Marathon, both of them never figured out Fire Man as well. From what I think, the best idea is just equip Ice Man and hit him as much as possible. There is no real strategy, just !

I have found very few conflicts here on the Backloggery. Granted, I haven't been here since Day One and I'm not the most prolific member of the community, but I have seen very little arguing. Every once in a while in the chat, I see some strong personalities clash, but it doesn't last that long. Here and at other places, I have realized to become a more casual observer. All of us have opinions on games and some of them can be very strong and diametric opposed from one another, but in the end, it's just video games. We all have differing opinions. I like the games I like and you like the games you like. If that gels together, fantastic. If not, then oh well, no big loss.

By the way, I highly approve of your Qualifications for Arcade Games. I don't think I have any games like that, but that is a method I approve of. If not, you would be playing those games forever! Also, congratulations on beating Tales of Symphonia. I have Tales of Destiny on the PS1, so I am very excited to be getting into that series for the first time!
