Focusing On Games With Impending ClosuresPermalink
Found my old Windows 8.1 phone a couple of months ago, which made me realize the store was closed, and some games/achievements unobtainable. Long story short, I decided to buy a Windows 10 phone to grab all the achievements from the games I bought years ago, while I still can.

I had to unofficially upgrade my unsupported Win 8.1 phone to Win 10 to sync my unlocked achievements I got after Feb 14ish, even though I was online, and it was time stamped correctly. I got the info from this thread: Can't refresh (profile not updating) Thanks to UnfurledEmu75 for the info!

Ever since that experience, I've had a strong desire to try and complete games that are in danger of closing soon, since that's not a feeling or situation I want to have to go through again. Even if soon means 1-2 years from now. You never know when something will close down, or personal things popping up in your life.

This will be a personal list for myself mostly, but if you see a game that has multiplayer components, feel free to shoot me a DM. I'll get back to you quickly.

I may include Win 8 games at a later date. We'll see.

Bold has multiplayer components.
