310th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: Sega Wow. Back to Sonic already. Despite its status as big mascot, rivaling Mario at one time, only three games are listed, in contrast with Mario’s… well, lots. Not surprising considering the massive fall from grace the Sonic […]

309th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: XBox/PS2/Gamecube Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Free Radical Design Publisher: EA Games It has been a while since we previously covered TimeSplitters 2, a shame considering it’s one of Peter’s favourite FPS series.

305th played so far Genre: Survival Horror Platform: Various Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom The Resident Evil series is one that keeps haunting us.
