Games Of All Time List

This is a list of games I have played and how I feel about them.

Note: I'm still in the process of compiling this list! There are probably still a lot of games that I have played but haven't added yet!

Astronomical: The best games of all time are rated here. These are games that I have an unconditional love for. Games have to have a certain magic to them to be here.
Great: These are games that left a great impression on me.
Good: These are games that were simply good for me. There was nothing really wrong with these games but there was nothing special about these games either.
Mediocre: These are games I kind of regret playing. They tend to have slight flaws that tarnish what could of been a good experience.
Poor: These are games I fully regret playing. They tend to have fundamental flaws to them.
Abyssal: What was I thinking?!?!? These games are outright dead to me.
