What's everyone's go-to for deciding what to categorize the game you beat as? Do you just follow the list down, starting with the years? Do you pick whatever you think has the least chance of coming up again (beating an RPG when you don't play many RPGs)? Or do you just pick the first thing that comes to mind?

I beat a game
I take into account what other games I'm currently playing or games I'm planning to play
I put the game into the section that's the least likely to come up for me soon

I just throw the game I've beaten into whatever category it fits in, and if I have to change it later to accommodate another game, so be it

41. Beat a game with a Metascore below 70

Knack. Score probably shouldn't be as low as it is, it's a neat game to play casually

Similar. I just go with either country of origin or style of gameplay to determine for myself. Epic Battle Fantasy 5, though clearly made in the west with western humor, is undoubtedly a jRPG in combat, menus, progression, and gameplay. I pretty much go with:

Do you create your own character from scratch? Are there multiple origin options? Do you have a lot of freedom to explore where you want with choices that affect the storyline? Is the D&D style progression? Is combat more real-time than turn-based, often without going onto a separate battle screen?
If two or more of these apply, it's probably a WRPG, IMO.

46. Beat a game that features historical events or people

Glass Masquerade


What It Is: An art deco stained glass repair simulator.

- Short but sweet. Thanks, @KCF0107 for the key! It was a lot of fun. The stained glass windows looked really cool and the shapes were difficult to put together sometimes. I finished all the non-DLC puzzles in under 15 minutes so there wasn't a full like 500-piece puzzle challenge... which would be pretty crazy with this, but fun.

As well, I felt playing this like I was putting together one of those Survivor puzzles with all the crazy shapes. It helped that everything automatically locked into place when I got it on the right spot, and that the pieces were turned correctly for me, but man, I felt like I was racing for Immunity sometimes and I don't think I've ever had that feeling in a video game ever. Thanks again!

Under Historical because there are a few people, ancient races, and events depicted.
