Hello! My name is Nikki and I am attempting to rip through my backlog. I love Backloggery but my one issue with it is that I seem to get in a mindset of playing games to finish them and I forget to get immersed and have fun. I am going to try to prevent this feeling as best I can by playing through some games I have already played with my girlfriend so she can see them too.
If you are curious, these are my qualifications for ratings.
Seen the ending credits or finished main story of a game. There are very, very few exceptions to that, however a couple I mark as beaten are called as such even if I haven't finished them because they were either too terrible, broken, or I completely lost interest in them. If this is the case, I will make a note of it by the letters NGF (standing for Not Gonna Finish). Games that I find extremely hard might get this designation as well. These games might be revisited if I decide to try them again. If I beat them at that point, I will remove their NGF status. This is actually really hard for me because I hate calling something beat when it isn't but I have decided that life is too short to play shitty games just to see the end. That is what YouTube is for.
Gotten every collectable, trophy, and achieved 100% completion. Everything to see and do in the game is done.
Completed plus speed runs or no death runs, etc.
Games with no real ending such as arcade games or things like the Sims.
