I feel like I've just read out a list of confessions in horrifying detail and now I'm being punished by having to play through every game I've ever neglected.

    Can I exclude Age of Empires? I beat it once before it was available on Steam.

    None of this is ill-gotten. You legally paid for this insanity.

    Yes, AoE may be excluded. You've already beaten it.

    Planescape isn't a steam game, but play it anyway!
  • trooster89trooster89 Are you from London? Icrontian
    You can do it!

    Prime made the title I had it titled Ilriyas's backlog of horror

    I might change it so far thinking Ilriyas's Institution of Intermittent Insanity.

    First update: Installed A Game of Dwarves today, I previously held 4 hours in it but something exists which is absolutely game breaking for me.

    Anytime you alt tab in and out the game suffers from atrocious framerate stuttering and the only fix is to save and reboot. While it's not too big an issue it's definitely killing any immersion I had prior.

    ... so don't alt-tab? Just play, that should help your immersion.

    I've been playing more A Game of Dwarves recently and I've got a number of problems with it so far.

    The lag problem I encountered does not originate from alt-tabbing but is apparently just an issue of poor optimization. From what I've been able to find just about everyone who's played the game encounters unbearable lag after a good 10 minutes of digging, gathering resources, or once they've hit 10 or more Dwarves.

    Unfortunately the game cannot be played properly with the starting Dwarves and it cannot be played at all once you get to the root of the game...digging.

    Yet another thing I noticed is that A Game of Dwarves has received zero support from Paradox Interactive since it's release on Steam, in fact it appears that it's been forgotten about altogether.

    If this continues as it is I may write a very negative review simply because of the lag issue (Though the game itself doesn't have much going for it when it IS working)

    I'm noticing a conspicuous lack of Katawa Shoju on your list. Your list shall not be complete till you have all paths and screencaps to prove it. So says the Reverend Heimerdinger.
