Backloggd's Top 250

To be eligible for this list, a game must:
-Have 1,000+ plays.
-Not be DLC, an expansion, a collection, or a chapter.
-Be the most played version of the game it's representing. In the case where an alternate version* of a game has more plays than the original version, the original version is listed as a note.
*I use Glitchwave to determine what should be considered an alternate version of a preexisting game, since to my knowledge it has the most comprehensive version combining out of any game database.

Will you add both Umineko halves to this?

1 year ago

I initially hadn't added them since there was some discrepancy in their categorization on here and on Glitchwave which I couldn't make heads or tails of since I know nothing about VNs. It seems like that's been cleared up since then so I'll put them on here this Thursday, thanks for reminding me.

1 year ago

Also don't forget to add Endwalker as "all of FFXIV"

1 year ago

Like with any expansion, I think it's fair to assume Endwalker's ratings are for the content in Endwalker alone, not "all of FFXIV."
