From the main page [quote=The Backloggery]Play a lot of video games? If so, there's a good chance you've accumulated a backlog over the years. Sure, you've been meaning to go back and play them but it seems like there's always something getting in the way. Work? School? Family? Even those pesky new games that keep coming out before you've finished the last one. How are you supposed to keep up? Nevermind trying to get through the old ones in your backlog! What you need is a little motivation. What gamer doesn't like to look over their stats and celebrate the milestones as they progress toward a goal? That's where we come in. We'll keep track of everything for you so you'll know what you've done and what still needs your attention. Inputting your games is quick and easy. No slow, endless lists to search through. Just type it in and go! You just might discover a lot of great games that were swept aside long ago. And best of all, you already own them! [/quote] [url]http://www.backloggery.com/[/url] The Backloggery is a neat website that helps you manage the ammount of games you play/buy/download. You add an ammount of games you have and organize them by various variables, the main point is to organize your Completed:Uncompleted game ratio. I myself have a lot of games, and a lot of games I haven't beaten, I tend to download more games even when I don't beat prior games. This gives you some good motivation to complete those games and feel a little more accomplished about your gaming! Add me: [url]http://www.backloggery.com/main.php?user=the_batman[/url]
I thought by "ADDHD" you ment if you rage at video games. I am dissapoint. Also, another easy way of keeping track of this is memory. :v: I'll check it out nonetheless.
My explanation does not do it justice, it's really convenient.
Oh, this is awesome, I do have something like 150 PC games so this is really useful.

My problem isn't beating games, with some it's coming back to them and forgetting what's going on in the story.

You're a horrible person.

Holy Christ. You skip the story?! Wow. I anything but respect you.
I don't understand people like that. "I enjoy fun but I want the minimal amount of fun out of my games."
[QUOTE=Oecleus;15960455]You listen to the story? I NEVER know what's going on in games, I just follow the compass and skip through all the dialogue.[/QUOTE] I'm going to guess you're also one of those people who will buy a 360, play it to get all of the achievements and then return it.
LoLollol check out mai gamerpoints i am gud at exbox.
I rarely finish any singleplayer games I have, unless the story actually is appealing enough to go through the same repeatative tasks to progress
You shouldn't play repetitive games then. Unless you find doing something dynamic but can be done repetitively, repetitive. In that case video games is not your hobby
[QUOTE=Oecleus;15960455]You listen to the story? I NEVER know what's going on in games, I just follow the compass and skip through all the dialogue.[/QUOTE] Which is why we have games such as halo and call of duty and counter strike.

Stalker has a good story and it's not really repetitive if you don't want it. wooo freeroam! Also monolith solders are totally overpowered.
:crying: no one is paying attention to the op! :crying:

I have an easier way being a PC gamer. Keep the shortcut icons of the games you haven't finished yet on your desktop. Them sitting there will eat away at you until you beat them and can delete the shortcut or install the game.
I'd just delete them. Even if I knew the purpose.
I need this terribly. I have so many unfinished games hiding in folders.
This site doesn't help me, since I nearly only play online games.
Okay?
Made an account. I'd tell you it but I'm embarressed of the games I haven't beaten yet :( [editline]11:52AM[/editline] [QUOTE=Oecleus;15960455]You listen to the story? I NEVER know what's going on in games, I just follow the compass and skip through all the dialogue.[/QUOTE] I remember I skipped ONE cutscene in Tales of Symphonia. Now I have no idea what's going on and still can't find where to go after like 3+ years [editline]11:54AM[/editline] Also I'm really liking how this site is organized.
[QUOTE=Shoopiwoop;15961572]Kotor 1 & 2 Deus ex Mass effect Stalker[/QUOTE] Deus Ex, KOTOR 2 and Mass Effect I played through, got fed up with the bugs in Stalker and never played KOTOR 1 And those kind of games aren't made anymore, it's all dumbed down so tards can get their stiffies from shiny graphics and dull storylines.
Yes it is very organized. I'd like a different theme though [editline]04:59PM[/editline] [QUOTE=Deruu;15963250]Deus Ex, KOTOR 2 and Mass Effect I played through, got fed up with the bugs in Stalker and never played KOTOR 1 And those kind of games aren't made anymore, it's all dumbed down so tards can get their stiffies from shiny graphics and dull storylines.[/QUOTE] Yeah as I said, gaming shouldn't be your hobby if you can't find anything good. There are plenty of good things, new and old.
I can't be bothered entering in all the games, you should be able to link it to your Steam account and it would just get all the stuff from your games list. You'd still have to enter some stuff of course but it'd be cool.
I've noticed I don't really get sucked into games anymore. Mass Effect sucked me in because that game is just amazing. Too bad the sound hasn't been working forever so I can't continue it :argh: But other games, like Bioshock for instance, I don't really have any will to play. It just gets bland and repetitive.
