I always hit a wall with backloggery, can’t remember exactly why so I won’t try to remember and say something wrong here. I remember aside for GUI groans it’s kind of superficial, like I didn’t like the box art they used for Mother 3 and it’s very english-speaker-centric. Like if I type in the JP title for a game it doesn’t show up and I have to use the localized name. IF I recall correctly.
What I need that sites like backloggery don’t provide:
Japanese release-centric catalog
list fully populated by default
just go through and check boxes for each game in the library
…. so probably too much to ask for since I’m basically describing the way I organize my own ROMs which is a very fuzzy logic.
Like I feel like I’d rather make my own spreadsheet if I were to do it?
In a sense, because of the way I organize my roms library for each console in folders according to year of release, the library itself becomes a kind of tracking system.
I spend hours and hours organizing ROMs. At least once I’ve done that I can play them. Making a list on backlogged is like doubling that work.
I also do have some handwritten backlogs for everyone console in my notebook to keep track of what I’m in the middle of / intend to play next.
Please don’t take any of this the wrong way, it’s just my personal experience and viewpoint. Uhh I’m open to suggestions.
Maybe it would be better to have my thoughts written in one place like backlogged instead of just posting here in the middle of a ten thousand post long thread.
