I have a rather decent collection of games on my shelves, for all sorts of platforms, in all sorts of genres. I've never been one to avoid games based on genre alone; usually I'll enjoy anything if it's done pretty well.
Something I noticed, however, is that there seems to be a gap in the coverage of games. A lot of the friends I talk to either like the really old stuff (pre 1995) or the quite modern stuff (post 2005), but don't care as much for the games in that decade between, and there's a lot of games in this time period in my collection that I feel deserve to be mentioned. I don't plan to stick to this era strictly, and I'll probably focus on stuff that is now rather obscure, because everybody has heard enough about those mega popular beasts like Diablo 2 and Half-Life, but hopefully some of these games may be of interest to somebody else out there!
I'll also try to make sure I keep the genres fairly well shuffled, so you don't get bored reading about the 20th city building sim in a row. Rather than doing contemporary reviews with scores, I merely wish to give a simple impression of the games I play. A lot of these I've never played before, and am only just playing for the first time as I write about them, so I've probably not played them all the way through. Hopefully it still provides a decent bit of insight!
Thanks for checking out Semi-Nostalgic, and I hope you'll enjoy the ride as I play my way through forgotten games that I always wanted to play as a teenager but never could afford to. I've got quite a few games I'd like to cover, and my collection is always growing, so stick around to see what I come up with next.
