It started with me trying to fill in the games I owned that did not yet have an entry in the database. I got in the regular habit of filling in any missing entries I came across, although my entrance into the Hall of Fame came when character entries were added to the count as well.

Being part of the VGG Beta, one of my goals might just have been to get the Herculean uploader badge before the site even went publicly live. Not because I'm competitive, of course... Since then, I haven't at all been keeping an eye on the other top contributors to see what our relative standings are...

Sometimes I wonder whether I was made an admin simply to stop be contributing so much. :D

With regards contributions, I make an above-average percentage of my contribution score from characters and series. It seems lots of series of games get submitted to VGG, but not the actual Series entry itself. Strange as it's such easy pickings. Ah well - all the more for me!

P.S. I'm watching you, Ziilch!

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

I would not be here without all the assistance I have gotten from the admins who generously donate their time to the site, help keep it running and keep wayward contributors inline. Ncik, _Kael_, zorazen, ziilch, stargate, speedracer513, darlok, _kael_ and andrewhodkinson. Without them Video Game Geek would not be what it is today.

This all started out as a way to get GG for the G4GG lotteries. I submitted some games, and got some GG, then realized “hey, I could submit more games”. It morphed into a race to see if I could be the second person after Nick to get the Herculean badge (I was 3rd). Then I got that and became an admin, and it became a game to catch Nick. Now it's a game to stay AHEAD of Nick. Well, that and improve the database, of course.

I'm embarrassed to be on this list because I do so much less than the others! Like Ziilch, I started submitting entries to VGG because of my long-standing participation in the G4GG lotteries. The early days of VGG submissions were almost too easy: just think of any game, and chances were good that it hadn't been submitted yet. I began with one of my first video game obsessions, text adventures, leading to the submission of almost the entire Infocom, Magnetic Scrolls, and Level 9 catalogs, as well as every modern classic that I could think of: Photopia, Spider and Web, etc. (I still hope to enter all of the IFComp games some day.) Then my wife bought me an iPad and I started obsessing over iOS games. More recently I got a PS3, and I can already sense my tastes shifting....

What keeps me going with VGG submissions nowadays is not so much the material rewards (such as they are), but the unexpectedly warm community that has sprung up among the few of us silly enough to pursue a few microbadges and a post or two of acclaim. And as VGG expands in content and users, I'm sure all of us feel a sense of parental pride at seeing "our" kid grow.

When I first started added games to VGG I was on a big Wii Virtual Console kick. I started this Geeklist, Definitive Wii Virtual Console List, because I thought it would a good resource and also thought it would be cool to see all the Wii VC games rank in one list. What I didn't realize when I started was that over half the game were not in the database. I started adding them and adding them and adding them. It took me over 2.5 years to reach the Ultimate Uploader list. I have no idea how those guys above me can be so fast! In the end I am just happy to give back to a site that has given so much to me.

The history of video games is amazing and adding games to the database is like following strands of that history. I concentrated on inputting Koei and Tecmo (from the Koei side), as well as PS2 and PS3 games, especially from the Japanese side. Presently I'm going through ZX Spectrum games and the wild 1980s for British developers. If you are reading this and need help getting started on inputting games into VGG, or are planning to finally do a documentary on the history of video games, drop me a geekmail and I will encourage you.

1000 points!
Though many of my entries are not games that are or were dear to me, cataloguing games has been a fascinating journey through the history of video games.
Basically, if I encounter a game, I check if we've got it. Usually the encountered game leads me to a company or series, so I add that to my list of things to add. The list gets exponentially longer by the day, it seems!
See if you can rate any of them! I'd appreciate that. (Lots of DOS games, then a lot of random stuff.)
With work and planning on school, I have had to slow down quite a bit. Even so, a game here and a game there remains my goal.

Having received the Herculian badge almost 2 years ago, on October 31, 2011, I did not expect any more badge awards. If I remember correctly, I was the fifth to receive it after Ncik, Ziilch, Celiborn and Infinity. Next thing I know, the Ultimate badge became available. Free time is short for me, however, so I greatly slowed down, uploading a bunch of stuff only during short periods of recess from work and other activities. I am happy to be here and I will definitely keep uploading - hopefully at a faster pace.

I would like to kindly thank all the Admins for their help, hard work and for making all this possible. Namely, Ncik, for approving my very first Video game upload on September 25, 2010, with admin comments for a great submission and 5 Geekgold! as well as for tons of ensuing approvals and for his patience during my faulty uploads... Also, Zorazen and Ziilch for pretty much the same reasons! Also, Darlok, Stargate, _Kael_ and Jester. Sorry if I have forgotten anyone!...

What a great honor to be included in this group of obsessive contributors! :) For my part, I love old school arcades and since I spent SO many quarters in them, I can get a little return in the form of Geek Gold. I entered pretty much every arcade game from 1970-1980 and then large portions of Konami, Taito, Tecmo and other classic arcade creators. Oh yes, and lots and lots of Pong.

My thanks to the admins, contributors and Arcadians for making the VGG great!

I blame my 8 bit computers fetish for ending up here. I'm especially interested in the Amstrad family of computers and the early French videogame industry (which was extremely productive during the 80s/90s), I should probably write a book about it at some time (though I may be the only interested reader, ah ah).

Joking aside, VGG is a nice place to be around online and I'm happy to be doing my part to make the db a bit more complete.

The contribution score is worked out as:

[Video Games] + [Franchises] + [Series] + (0.25 x [Releases]) + (0.25 x [Characters]) + (0.10 x [Character Versions])

The rightmost column of the table is currently manually maintained by _Kael_ and updated periodically. Poke him if you think it needs updating.
