This is MobyGames. Live it. Give to it. It’s a big video games database, extraordinarily well-organized, beautifully presented, and under constant improvement. It holds a special place in my heart because I had long ago dreamed of creating an ambitious web-based game database (and I’ll have you know I got a reasonable start on a web database that specialized in just 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System games). I like MobyGames because it is just as I envisioned my ideal web video game database, only better. And I like contributing to MobyGames.
What does MobyGames have to do with this wacky play-a-game-a-day idea? I have been collecting piles of video games for years now, games that I never, ever have occasion to play. Why buy? Mostly, I study the technical aspects on another pseudo-blog called Multimedia Exploration Journal. However, I have a ton of games and other data waiting to go into MobyGames. I suddenly came up with this idea to try to play a game each day in an effort to finally dump all of this data into the MobyGames database.
Wish me luck.
