no message, Officer Prinny, just a harmless joke on your gigantic backyard of unfinished games.
the same for me.
many dozens of unfinished games. sometimes short before the end. i don’t like to “finish” a much loved game.
i left Zelda Windwaker when i had reached the final tower/castle.
then Ole snatched my save file (had asked me for allowance) and finished the game.
but it really hurt that the save file was overwritten and gone then
i’m totally with you when it comes down to mobile gaming (esp iOS!).
no serious gaming platform (any longer).
i have lost so many games, “stolen” from my “purchased” archives.
on iOS we don’t “own” nothing. it’s all about leasing.
drives me mad.
i have returned to consoles and handhelds, just like you.
when there is a choice, i prefer console.
Steamworld Heist, the X-Com games, Battle World: Kronos, Armello etc
only exception is FTP stuff and are digital boardgames.
but some losses too: Alien Frontiers, Hacienda, Samurai (still in purchased, but pulled from appstore),
Qin (pulled), Stone Age (MP crippled), Assassin’s Creed CG, Solforge and more.
unsupported and no longer functioning on new iOS build, publisher out of business, pulled from appstore or vanished from my purchase archives or essential MP crippled by abandoned GC.
Playstation slogan is “this is for the Gamers!”
for iOS this would sound like pure cynicysm.
