I'm going to be cheeky and plug mine.

Wasn't intended for games only but so far it is all I have done.

As for ones I read by other people my favourite is the Extra Punctuation on the escapist.

I thought we had a separate post for simply advertising your personal blogs but I can't find one besides this.

Oh well!

I do most all of the news/blog items at http://retrowaretv.com
I also just started a more personal geeky blog as a secondary blog on my personal website (mostly about my music) here http://kevinwillingham.com/geek-blog/

I must shamelessly plug myself.
http://nothingnovel.wordpress.com/
It's a blog about free games and webcomics that I think are actually worth people looking at. I just started posting in it.
These are my finest threads. Please, enjoy:

Nintendork666 wrote:A favorite of mine that hasn't been mentioned yet is Super Adventures in Gaming. It's a really fun read with great screens and often humorous insight; hell, the tagline is - 'Playing everything, finishing nothing, posting screenshots.' :lol:

http://superadventuresingaming.blogspot.com/

The Rules
1. I don't play games that I remember playing before. Unless I want to. For nostalgia or whatever.

2. I don't use cheats, save states, trainers, etc. to progress through the games. With a lot of these games, reaching game over is a blessing.

3. I don't read the manual first, I don't play fan translated games. Because it's more amusing if I don't know what I'm doing.

4. I'm not trying to win the games, or make full 'Let's Play' playthroughs. I'm just going sight seeing through retro games and taking pictures.

5. I do post screenshots from cutscenes, so there may be spoilers.

There's a similar one I'm following for Computer RPGs: http://crpgaddict.blogspot.com/

His rules:

1. I am following a list of CRPGs in chronological order derived from several sources--primarily Wikipedia (both regular CRPGs and roguelikes) and MobyGames. The intent of the list is to be as inclusive as possible, although I reserve the right to skip over games that do not have at least two of these three core criteria: 1) non-puzzle-based inventories; 2) character leveling and development; 3) combats based at least partly on attribute-derived statistics.

2. Only games released for DOS or Windows.

3. I cannot use cheats.

4. I cannot look at FAQs or walkthroughs until I have finished playing.

5. I don't have to win every game, but I must play for at least six hours.

6. I can only reload a game if my entire party is wiped out or the game otherwise forces me to reload. I cannot reload simply to try to get a better outcome. If a character dies, I must heal or replace that character. (Exceptions made for unique situations like trying to kill Lord British.)

Necro-compliment, but I'm enjoying this one a fair bit. Kudos, and thanks.

Had been talking about it for a while and it looks nice. :wink:
