Tomb Raider Anniversary, as it is the only one I've played. I quite enjoyed it though, except for the ending which I could'nt beat. There were a series of jumps I couldn't accomplish.

This is kinda inspiring me to make a numbers list of my own.
I have the following headers:
Game Name
Rating [Dropdown menu for each entry: Crap, Bad, Okay, Good, Awesome, Windows, Won't Play]
Source [Steam, GOG, MGS, Mac App Store, ...]
Bit [Dropdown menu for each entry: 32 bits, 64 bits)
Comments & Notes (For any serials, Borderlands golden keys, things I need to remember, personal highscore in case I delete the preference files, etc.)

And then at the bottom I have another list with wishes... Although I almost never update it, since I just add things to my MGS/Steam wishlist mostly (Convenient for sales emails), so it is practically only for games I should play at some point in my life on platforms I don't have, such as Playstation or Xbox.
And at the very bottom, yet another list, with login/usernames specifically for gaming platforms and game sale platforms (Blizzard.com, Mac App Store, Humblebundle.com, MGS, Steam, Uplay, Origin, specific game sites, etc.).

It took some time to create, but in many cases it was just a matter of going to the few websites where most of my games where (MGS, Steam, Mac App Store), copy the list of games, paste it into a spreadsheet, filter out the crap, make the headers, and then go from there. Its been SO convenient for me! :) The main thing is now to always remember to add things to the list whenever I buy something, but at this point it is just something I do automatically as soon as I buy anything. And the long list of unplayed games have spured me to really lower my shopping I must say...

She hates you for it since she found your past girlfriends list. :P
Or perhaps because her rating on the list was lower than the average! :P

I keep track of all my games in a Numbers sheet, and that has really helped giving me an overview, and not double-buying stuff. And actively lowered the numbers of games I've bought. I have 399 owned games on the list (Missing ~12 Wii games I still need to add), and of those, 252 are still unplayed. I don't think I need to buy more, unless some really nice offers come out. And my 2011 iMac is getting a bit long in the tooth when it comes to modern releases, so no need to buy recent games anyway. And with a second child on the way, I don't even know how I will find the time to do a review of Civilization VI, as I promised MGS after winning their Civ VI competition a few weeks ago... Hopefully this weekend. :D

Edit: The Feral thread discussion actually got me wondering if I should spend some time finding out which games are staying 32 bit, and prioritize playing those, before the GPU in my 2011 iMac dies again and I have to upgrade to a 64 bit only OS... I think I will do that, and add it to my Numbers list (I love making lists! My girlfriend hates me for it... Everything has to go into a list. Lists are awesome!) to the 64 bit compatibility thread.

In Topic: Warcraft 3 remaster, sorry 'reforged'

I certainly do like that kind of thing. Warcraft 3 + Expansion pack was freaking amazing.
