So I decided to break down and actually do my best and catalog my game collection. Being a Mac user I had some great cataloging programs to choose from and at the end of the day, I decided to settle back down to Gamepedia since I actually purchased a license on the program, two computers ago.
I was tempted between Delicious Library 2 and Gamepedia. While the interface of the Delicious Library 2 was tempting, the ability of Gamepedia to search several databases like Mody Games, Wikipedia and most importantly Amazon, made this the simplest choice, for a guy with a lot of imported games.
The UPC scanner is a neat feature with this program. All you have to do is have your isight take a photo for the UPC code and the program will search the data base for your title. The data that pops up is usually correct, but then I will spend the time to add new photos reflecting if I own the box or not and fix any incorrect information as needed. This is pretty convenient for titles that have UPC codes but the ones without, you can just do a search on the game’s title.
All in all I’m trekking along with home-brews and imports being the only road bump towards my ultimate goal of gaming organization. Gamepedia is a great piece of cataloging software that should be a must buy for Mac users. This is something I should have follow through years ago.
Remember, it’s never too late to catalog your junk.
