I might as well use this part of the page to tell a little bit about myself.
I was born in 1989 and thanks to my father got into gaming a few years later. I’m not exactly sure when gaming became my hobby (or a passion, really) but it never left me since.
I enjoy playing games, reading about them, listening to video game related podcasts and watching videos. I am also an avid fan of eSports (StarCraft and CS: GO in particular) and books based on video games (favourite being Resident Evil books by S. D. Perry). I really, REALLY like the culture of video games.
My all time favourite game series are Resident Evil (hence the Hunk avatar and page picture) and Silent Hill. Anything survival-horror is great, though! I’m also a big fan of FPS games. I was probably 5 years old when I’ve played through DOOM the first time (yeah, I did used iddqd and idkfa, but I was a kid).
is for games that don't have one clear goal (rogue-likes, sports games, multiplayer-only titles, MMORPGs) or are just too broad and expansive (civ-likes, 4x games).
games are seen through to the end, I have an opinion about them and I can partake in a conversations that mention them.
means that I've seen the credits and
that I've done pretty much everything there is to do. Usually, if I get all the achievements for a game - it's
One more thing to note! If I have a game on multiple platforms and I've
it on one platform I'll mark it as such on all the other platforms as well (examples in my collection would be Theme Hospital, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, etc). I think it is a fair thing to do when the games are nearly identical.
How I catalogue my game:
1) Compilations of games are split into single entries only if they are represented this way in Steam, GOG or other platform's library. Also if each of the games have their own trophy/achievement list;
2) If compilation is on physical media it's only split into different entries if each of the games have their own physical representation (meaning each game has it's CD/DVD/etc);
3) DLCs are added as DLCs on Steam, XBox 360/One, PlayStation 3/Vita/4 only when they are treated this way by:
1) Plug-and-play systems only get one entry (eg. ZX Vega has 1000 games, that would inflate total number of games quite a bit);
2) Bootleg multi-carts only get one entry (I only have a few but still, listing 200+ bootleg DS games from one cart would be unfair);
3) Demo discs only get one entry. If the demo disc contains a full game though - it's going to be a seperate entry;
4) Mobile games are only added if I bought them and/or spent any money in game;
5) If the compilation has only one entry in achievement/trophy list - it's one entry (eg. Metal Slug Anthology), otherwise it's split up into multiple entries (eg. Spyro Trilogy, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy);
6) Episodic games (The Walking Dead, etc) get one backlog entry to reduce bloat;
It only contains released games or games that has a set release date. There are a lot more upcoming games that I want but I don't add them until they get a release date.
So there it is, if you've read through all of this you might as well leave a comment and tell me how you are doing!
