Welcome to the Carbon-izer Games Review Section, which is inspired off similar lists like |tsr's nes archive or Hardcoregaming101.net. This list currently only includes things I've played. If you have something to contribute, I'd love to see it here (just email me or contact me somehow).

This idea has been in the works for years, and reflecting that is a focus more on Nintendo games and old computer games, with less on PlayStation/Sega/AAA titles (hence, lots of Zelda games, for instance). This is more on reviews and less on tips in general (though some do have tips and other resources), and you'll see what I liked (SimCity 2000 or Portal) and what I didn't like (Eric the Unready or Façade). I want to try to get titles a bit more obscure in here but don't mind mainstream titles. Some of the games are in series, so look out for that too. There may be more than one game mentioned there, so it's a package deal (see the review for Pokémon Trading Card Game), in case I loved one game but not so much its sequels. I intend to do that for the main Pokémon series when I get to it.

In many ways, this isn't about reviewing games, because they're not true reviews, they're also histories of me, and many of the reviews here talk about when I played them. Some of the games I've played I'm not ready to put on here yet because I haven't yet come to terms of accepting that time in my life. Of course, they are reviews otherwise, and many times it boils down to if I liked it or not. Recently, I've switched to a new format that more closely mimics the front page. Thumbnails are now clickable. The others have not been done yet and will be done. If you have a problem with seeing a derivative work of your screenshot, please contact me. There are a few games left on here that are marked with *, that means it's from an older-format HTML template I used to use.
