I found StrategyWiki in May 2012 while searching for a Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic wiki, and have contributed to it rather than alternatives like Wikia because I (much) prefer the way it's organized: each game has its own guide (not a single project for multiple games in the same series) and each guide has a table of contents on every page which links to all other pages (aside from ease of navigation, it encourages keeping it streamlined).

I was granted administrative rights on 23 April 2018.

Listed below are all 63 titles (including 14 expansions) I can remember acquiring or completing, 36 (~57%) of which have been played to completion (at least to my own satisfaction). All but four of those completed were released before 2000 (I started playing computer games in 1990): in more recent years, contributing to wikis like this has (significantly) reduced completion rate.

I have also played, or watched my brother play, various Sierra games in the King's Quest, Leisure Suit Larry, Police Quest and SWAT, Quest for Glory and Space Quest series, but these aren't included since they weren't mine and at this point I'm uncertain which ones I played (or to what extent). My library also contains a substantial number of free titles, but I don't feel any compulsion to play them, let alone contribute to their guides, so these also won't be included unless I do contribute (Torchlight), or I complete them (Blackthorne).

Games I don't currently possess are highlighted like this. Games I've completed are highlighted like this.

Comprehensive guides[edit]

These are comprehensive guides to which I've made any contribution, however minor (or even singular, in this case).

I've already played this to 100% completion, so I'm unlikely to make any further contribution (I simply reorganized its Table of Contents).

I'm most likely to write comprehensive guides of my own for games I haven't already completed, that I play(ed) through multiple times and for which I found existing resources lacking (or simply too spread out). However, this will take a while as I've yet to complete numerous RPGs to whose guides I've contributed, and I prefer to personally verify as much information as possible (which often involves use of editors and other utilities to get it straight from the source).

Contributions[edit]

These are other guides to which I've made any contribution, however minor (or even singular). I'm focusing on the first two games in the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic series, and I'll continue to do so until I judge them to be comprehensive. Ideally I'll do likewise for every other guide to which I've made any contribution, although that's overly ambitious (since I haven't completed a single guide yet).

More realistically, I plan to make anything to which I contribute at least a stage 2 guide, with enough of the walkthrough completed to show others how they could proceed (with notes on talk pages concerning presentation, templates, images and gathering and verifying information: if nothing else, I may need it myself if I return to complete a guide at a (much) later date).

Completion stage isn't necessarily a good measure of progress: while it should be relatively quick and easy to get any guide to stage 2, it may remain at stage 2 (or 3) even after a significant amount of work has been done on it.

Pending games[edit]

These are games I haven't played to completion (at least to my own satisfaction) and to whose guides I'm most likely to contribute in the future, particularly if I'm unable to find existing resources which cover everything I needed or wanted to know while playing. However, I'm less likely to create a guide which doesn't already exist, or to contribute to one if a game isn't currently in my possession or I cannot otherwise run it.

I'm maintaining a moratorium on buying and playing new games until I've eliminated or at least reduced the number pending, but in the past I wasn't able to pass up a bargain: buying a Star Wars Saber Bundle in May 2015 was a serious lapse, doubling the number of Star Wars titles in my library from 9 (including 4 expansions) to 18 (I'm not nearly a big enough fan for them to account for just over 1/4 (!) of all games I've ever bought or completed).

Completed games[edit]

These are games I have played to completion (at least to my own satisfaction) and to whose guides I'm least likely to contribute in the future, particularly if one hasn't already been created. My grounds for completion are completing the game at the highest (sensible) difficulty level without cheating, and not feeling any need to replay the game in order to explore anything missed on any previous play-through.

Doom and Doom II: Hell on Earth were only completed on Ultra violence and not Nightmare! (enemies re-spawn) but I'll only revisit those games in the highly unlikely event that I complete or abandon all current and pending games, and get the urge to play them again (the release of Doom (2016) had made me a little nostalgic, but so far that's not been enough).

Wii Sports[edit]

I shouldn't consider Wii Sports completed until I've been awarded all platinum medals for Training with both hands, and I only have 8/15 with my left and 7/15 with my right. However, it's been years since I've made any effort to improve on that.
