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! :D 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).
I have quite a collection of games and yet the fun fact is: I actually play them! (I might upload a bunch of pictures of my collection but I don’t feel like there is a need for that) I even have the ‘backlog cleared’ achievement now..!
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). Freemium games for mobile devices also fall under this category.
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.
I tend to split games/compilations down to individual games/DLCs, although there are a few exemptions to this rule. Likes that are listed below only get one entry:
1) Plug-and-play systems (eg. ZX Vega has 1000 games, that would inflate total number of games quite a bit, therefore all PnP systems are treated the same);
2) Bootleg multi-carts (I only have a few but still, listing 200+ bootleg DS games from one cart would be unfair);
3) Demo discs (splitting them down to individual demos probably wouldn't make much sense). If the demo disc contains a full game though - it's going to be a seperate entry;
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!
2014 goals: … I’ll think of something (will go for 'backlog beat' badge next year, I guess)
2015 goals: Get the 'backlog beat' badge and have 5 or less games in 'unfinished/unplayed'
2016 goals: Revisit and replay some of my favourite games:
[x] Resident Evil 3
[x] Silent Hill
[x] Silent Hill 3
[x] Silent Hill 4
[x] Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within
[x] Beyond: Two Souls
2017 goals: Beat every game I buy. Revisit few more Silent Hill and Resident Evil games.
2018 goals: Since I became a father this year (hooray!) my only goal is to beat every new game I buy, haha!
2019 goals: Only play games that are released in 2019. This might sound stupid but hear me out. I'm quite up to date with 19??-2018 games. If during 2019 I'll get into a new franchise I never played before I will not force myself to play through older games of the series. This should help me better enjoy the current state of video games.
