What playlist have you guys setup?

Recommended Posts


Here I talk about playlists on Launchbox and some Video Game memories from back in the day.

Do you use playlists with Launchbox and what genres have you guys come up with?

I'd really like to see the Launchbox community get together and collectively agree on default playlists that should be included with launchbox, specifically game series and best of console games.

i only use playlists for games that require different controllers then the standard currently...i have 3 currently set up. Guitar Hero, Rock band and taiko no tatsujin which all use some funky controller. i will add light-gun games aswell once and if the sinden light gun project ever gets made :(. If i didn't use Big box i would probably have more playlists to be honest, but to me its just another headache of creating/finding media if it doesn't already exist.

I use playlists as the 'series' and 'genres' function, as series isn't easy to move around menu's in bigbox.

Within the series, I generally link a big name series to related, smaller series/games from same company.

And just for fun, I put the games in (if available) a canon timeline order using the 'sort order' function.

For example, some playlists (series) I have:

Assassin's Creed and Ubisoft

Final Fantasy and Squaresoft

Tomb Raider and Eidos

etc...

Within the Genre playlists, I typically split up some genres to be more specific.

For example:

RPG split into RPG (General), RPG Tactics, and RPG Action

Racing split into Racing (general), Racing Kart, Racing FAST (f-zero types), and Racing Car Combat

etc

This is how my much smaller, but highly curated collection is laid out so far, with one example of how I lay out playlists in each platform too.

This collection that you see here loads fine, but my 8TB takes a min to load and can lag a bit when editing titles; much more so then this one pictured here.
