Does anyone here keep an accurate record of their completed games?
What about your backlog?
How do you track either list?
I do keep an accurate list of my completed games. It’s on backloggery.com
I also keep a record of my backlog on backloggery, but it’s not all encompassing. In my opinion, technically if you own a game, or start a game but don’t finish it, it should be part of your backlog. I don’t really follow that philosophy, however… It’s to much work.
In today’s gaming market, especially from a collector standpoint, there are just too many games that I play briefly then put down, to bother keeping a backlog accurate. I try to make sure that I add games that I spend a decent amount of times with, even if I don’t finish them.
If I finish a game, I always add it to the backlog (as completed), so I have an accurate record of all games I’ve finished.
I also have categories set up for my steam library by genre, and additionally I have completed games and in progress games.
If anyone else here is on backloggery, add me as a friend!
I try not to think about it since I buy more games then I beat a month. :c
I also use backloggery but only for physical games owned. I update it from time to time. Helps me keep track of what I buy and avoid purchasing stuff I already own!
I’ve considered using backloggery at some point, but their lack of database means I would have to spend an insane amount of time to enter my collection.
I kind of do, but not in an important way. The Gameye app has a completion slider which I try to keep updates, but it doesn’t really do anything but add extra info about each game in your collection. I just don’t want to have a separate collection app and backlog app.
I use howlongtobeat.com, and I also use collectorz.com to track games beaten.
I don’t really think of all games in terms of ‘beating’ them so much as ‘I’m done with them sufficiently to put them aside for now’ I guess? I need a multi-layer tool lol
- Completed to my satisfaction (not necessarily 100%) and will not return to any time soon
- Played enough to get as much fun as I’m going to get out of it for now. Not complete so could come back.
- Played a bunch, but want to play it more (more for ongoing games, eg Splatoon, Fighting games, score based games etc)
- Played enough to get an idea, but want to play more
- Have not played for more than a few minutes
3, 4, and 5 are all different levels of backlog, and things can move up the list.
Eg I finally beat Gradius recently (with a little bit of save state cheating) after it sat at 2 for 25 years lol.
Yeah I can say I have all those states of playing a game too, but I only really care for tracking what shown as #1 on your list.
