Gameplay feature: Journal

Group Description

Games featuring a journal, which is automatically updated with plot advances and clues. Useful to recall your adventures when you get back to your old saved games. Usually found in role-playing games (RPGs). Often written in first person.

Limitations
  • A mere quest list/tracker doesn't qualify, a journal should be more verbose and chronological by default.
  • Interactive fiction is text flow by definition, so it doesn't count.
  • Watching unlocked cutscenes again in sequence doesn't count as a journal.
