    ✓ As a record of the game

    I've played so many games in my life. I remember so many of them, but memories inevitably begin to fade sooner or later, and so do a lot of details and the feelings I experienced back then. Not just about the game, but life in general, the time when you played the game.

    It is a nice thing that you can revisit a certain game and a certain point of that game by just checking it out on Youtube. But that's not the personal experience you've had back then. Screenshots folders are photo albums, nothing else. It's nice to check them out on a lazy Sunday every now and then.

    My main reason for making screenshots is simply to have some visuals for my mods.

    I make screens for various reasons. But in the end (I don't know how), they always end up in competitions. Means that to enter competitions

    I went for "to report bugs" - but that's mainly as "a note to self" to record problems in a mod that I need to fix...

    Seconded! If I do find a cool angle or so to put in the competitions I don't shy away from it, but it is mainly for reminiscence
