1978

Here’s a list of all 1978 Videogames that I’ve now played.
Played – you played through an entire game
Completed – beat a game / achieved an “extended play” or some other in-game end-goal
100% – when there is “extra stuff” beyond just beating a game – or a perfect score when it isn’t necessary to win.
