I think I may have made a mistake, as I stumbled onto the achievements feature in RetroArch. I've now spent more time grinding through old games over the past week than I have putting that time where I should in newer releases. This past weekend I resolved to play through a few of these classics since Outriders is having issues with deleting your stash.

For the most part the authors creating these achievements are doing a good job. The site keeps ones that require glitches or other achievements requiring techniques outside of normal gameplay out of the main lists. Some of the games have rather extensive lists, as well. Super Mario 64 has 132 along with leaderboards. I've been playing through Resident Evil: Director's Cut and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Speaking of, I saw that black label copies of SotN are going for crazy amounts of money these days. So glad I bought it as an impulse from Gamestop 15 years ago for $20.

I've been going through the Metroid games getting those achievements, and Fusion is really doing a number on my thumb. Trying to grind all the damageless bosses and I've lost a lot of feeling in it. Maybe I should take a break... I was trying to complete Super and the input lag on PC is killing me trying to do the final escape with at least 2 minutes remaining.
