Hello to all reading this,
I play games rather slowly because that is just my nature. I have a terrible combination of a fear of the unknown, extremely cautious and a full time job. So, if I don't update my 'Now Playing' for a few days, it is because I am currently grinding and not avoiding my games. That is just not possible.
For the past several years, I have been playing my more 'modern' consoles more frequently. I have expanded recently and those will be represented on my Now Playing. Also, I have come up with 'Retro Random Monday', where I use the Fortune Cookie feature to play a random game to make progress on it. And, I have come up with 'Chosen Retro Wednesday', where I play my longer older games. Finally, I have 'Friday Afternoon Beats' where I will replay my older games until they are finished.
Thank you and I hope you enjoy looking at my collection along with my gaming status.

Buying New Games
= Get Fire Badge. Buy 1 new game from the console with the least amount of
Games. If tied, choose console with least amount of games. Choose my favorite 'Next' game from my Wishlist. Start Over. If I ever get to 1
Game on a console with games still on my Wishlist, I'll go on a Game Buying Spree to boost the numbers back up to most console.
Random Retro Monday
Every Monday, I will use the Fortune Cookie to decide which game I play that day.
Chosen Retro Wednesday
I will play a
game from my older systems until I am finished. I will then choose a game from the most
console and start playing that next Wednesday. If there is a tie, I will choose the console that is the longest since I finished a game.
