☆☆☆★★ Well polished, and surprisingly different from Trozei. Full impressions: http://backloggerythevault.com/2015/03/06/impressions-journal-11-pokemon-shuffle-3ds-download/
Faerie Solitaire Remastered
Now the build is stable enough for a serious tackle. Love it as a palate cleanser--and to study music. :) Achievements: 16 / 30 (53%)

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...
Ecco the Dolphin PAL
The Lagoon. (VOQNEEIC). Starting to... Like it, I guess?

Quite interesting but cryptic as fuck. The soundtrack rocks though--in an unpredictable way.
Revenge of the Titans
4th level of Saturn. So far so good... Achievements: 36 / 77 (47%)

★★★★★ 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.

Managed to reach the 2nd level. :P Maybe I can beat it if I figure out how to use the inssurance/inheritance thing... Achievements: 4 / 17 (24%)

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

Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright
Chapter 15. I'm glad Camilla didn't die... :P

It's very... Japanese. I mean it. Liking it much more than Awakening.
Back after ages! Water chip delivered back, now to hunt the mutant lab. :)

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

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?
