Welcome to the Carbon-izer Games Review Section, which is inspired off similar lists like |tsr's nes archive or Hardcoregaming101.net. When I wrote this I had more or less tossed around this idea for years, and reflecting that was a focus more on Nintendo games and old computer games, with less on PlayStation/Sega/AAA titles (hence, lots of Zelda games, for instance). In many ways, it wasn't about reviewing games, because they're not true reviews, they were also histories of me, and many of the reviews here talk about when I played them. Unfortunately, there were a number of problems when trying to write it, mainly diminishing returns, games that weren't memorable enough to write a review on, and games that had too much personal attachment that a review would never be good enough. A few of the posts have supplementary material but most of that can be acquired elsewhere.
