~About Our Game
The Game Reviews here in The
Backwood Realm cover mostly the first 3 or 4 generations of video games
(Basically from the onset of the consoles in the mid 70s to about 1996,
or the tail end of the Super NES and Sega Genesis era.) This particular
approximately 20 year era in video gaming history is of the most
interest to me, as it was basically the birth era of the video game, and
it's most explosive period of growth and development.
Games that will be included
in the reviews archive will cover all systems, including the occasional
arcade game and PC/Computer game as well.
I generally only review
games as I come to them, since my interest in classic and near-classic
gaming is so extensive. I don't generally concentrate on one system for
too long...I may bounce from the SNES to the Genesis, to the Atari 2600,
then to the 7800...you get the picture. Also, I only have so much time
in my life, and a very small percentage is devoted to this website
(including "The Backwood Realm"), so I add them as I can.

~Our Rating System~
Being as our site is just
beginning, this rating system at the moment just covers the overall
quality of the game. I may add ratings for graphics, sound, etc. later
on in the site's growth, but for now each game will be rated on a
"5-star" system, not unlike many other review sites. So, if
you see ""
in the ratings area of a review, the game is rated with "3
stars". Well, I suppose they're Backwood Realm Systems logos, but
you get the idea.
