Community Goal 2017: Let's play games on as many platforms as we can!
- Simon Lundström(Zimeon)Sweden
TäbyCome, come, all children who love fairy tales.
We made it!!
Thanks all who helped out!
So this is one of the community goals of 2017: Let's see how many platforms we can collectively play on! Last year we managed to play on 35 platforms out of the 118 that were in the database; let's see if we can get that higher. Let's see if we can get up to 50 platforms as a collective!
"Playing" on a platform means playing a game, or several games, for at least 5 hours. For some of the early platforms, 5 hours is a lot of time. That's intended. Taste them. Experience them.
Emulations are counted as OK, but must be mentioned. This means that Wii U Virtual Console, and "Arcade Classics" will count as the original platform, not the platform you're playing on.
When you've played something on a platform (or seen someone else on the Geek claim that they've played on a platform), post on that platform entry! I'll try to keep track of them all! If it doesn't amount to 5 hours, post anyway. Those 5 hours don't have to be the same game.
I've listed the platforms in "about" chronological order, for fun. Hot top: if you click on "Titles only" below, you can find the platform you search for quicker.
How individual credits will work
Everyone who plays on a platform gets credit for it, even if someone has played on that platform before! I'll keep track of individual credits here in the header. However, you can only get 1 credit per platform you play on, even if you play many games on that platform. The idea of this list is to SPREAD YOUR GAMING.
However, platforms that have 10 or more entries on it, will get a "10+" mention, and no one will get credit at all. Why is that, you say? Well, very simply because I both want to avoid the immense work of updating the PC / PS4 / XboxOne entries, and also simply because again, the purpose of this list is to get variety and tempt people to play on less populated platforms! So no, you won't get any credit for the popular platforms!
