How do you play retro games?

Protagonist: Robot

Group Description

This group includes games in which the main protagonist is a mechanical being that is powered by electricity and computer instructions, as opposed to an organic life-form, which is created and eventually dies. This includes androids (robots that resemble a humanoid with a head, two arms and legs).

Limitations:
  • Games in which robots are secondary characters (e.g. companions or members of a player-controlled party) should not be included in the group.
  • Mechanical robots which are operated by a human (mechs, mechas and remote-controlled ones) are not allowed.
  • Likewise excluded are cyborgs, which are biological beings implanted with artificial (electronic, mechanical or robotic) parts.
