Curmudgeon Gamer
Curmudgeoning all games equally.

AFK, and the Curmudgeon Gamer Library
I'm going to be on the road for a few days, so it's possible I won't make any new posts for a week. If history is any guide, though, I'll find a way to post something anyway. Maybe the others will take advantage of my relative silence and post up a storm.

Anyway, I've been taking an interest in MobyGames for a couple of weeks now and they've got a pretty decent Have List/Want List web interface. What makes it nice is that when you're adding games, you can type part of the name of a game and a dropdown list appears with games in the MobyGames database that match that string. By far, the most efficient such interface I've seen for this kind of collection tracking. (I'm sure better exists...)

The upshot is that you can now use the internets to browse the Curmudgeon Gamer Memorial Library (a.k.a. all the stuff I keep in my basement). At only 265 games (as of this moment), the list is less than half complete. When I get it up over 500 and nearing 600, it will be filled out completely. For the first time in a while, I'll be listing Commodore and Windows/DOS games, and I'll put up my two MacOS games too.

One surprising thing about the MobyGames database has been that I own several things that aren't listed. The list so far:
  • Prince of Persia (PSP)
  • Bookworm (GBA)
  • IK+ (GBA, North America)
  • International Karate Advanced (GBA, EU)
  • Frogger (GB/GBC)
  • Joust/Defender (GB/GBC)
  • Action Bass (PSOne)
  • Gekioh: Shooting King (PSOne)
  • Jet Moto 3 (PSOne)
  • Konami Arcade Classics (PSOne)
  • Nanotek Warrior (PSOne)
  • Nectaris: Military Madness (PSOne)
  • The Three Stooges (PSOne)
  • QIX Neo (PSOne)
Yeah, some of these are obscure, but Jet Moto 3 for the PSOne? How do you get all those monkeys typing and miss that one?

Fortunately, we've got a million monkeys plus one: I've submitted it as a new entry, and it's pending review.
