Letterboxd users have the opportunity to collect the films they have seen, write reviews, create lists and discuss them with other film enthusiasts. Backloggd also follows this approach. There are now over 615,000 games in the database, almost half of which have been given a rating. There are also over 20,000 reviews that have been published for the individual games.
