406th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade/Neo Geo Year of Release: 1994 Developer: SNK Publisher: SNK See that up there? Although we played a different port, this is our first Neo Geo game we’re playing. One for the stats, really, but it was about time. Three out of the four of them on the […]

405th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1980 Developer: Atari Publisher: Atari There are some games, such as today’s game┬áCentipede, that always stayed a bit nebulous to me. I had seen in come by on floppy disks a long time ago, but don’t recall ever playing it. I’m not […]

404th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Playstation 2/Xbox Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Rockstar San Diego Publisher: Rockstar Games Prior to the expansion of the list, Peter played through Red Dead Redemption, a great game that is probably best described as Grand Theft Auto III (or later) as a western. As the new edition […]

403rd played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1981 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo Perhaps inevitably, gaming would start riffing on movie stories. While not the first, Donkey Kong‘s inspiration is obvious form the name – King Kong is already referenced in the name, and the central image of an ape climbing a […]

402nd played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: The Creative Assembly Publisher: Activision Wow, has it already been 250 games since we played Medieval: Total War? I suppose it’s what you’d expect, considering that there are still two more coming up (Medieval: Total War II and Empire: Total War), but […]

401st played so farGenre: Advenure/Puzzle Platform: iPhone Year of Release: 2013 Developer: Simogo Publisher: Simogo Some games are ones we want to play purely because of the image, which looked weird – some goat-like thing standing in a river. By the way, this game, being the before-last game, will have the highest numbered game we’ll […]

50 Game Round Up: 351-400 (Peter)

Posted: 7th February 2015 by Jeroen in Round-Up

In this lot of 50 I finally feel like we have been able to catch up on a lot of the years, genres and platforms that had been left behind previously. Our statistics now take on a more long-term view of what we play in the 50. I know that this sounds a little bit […]

50 Game Round Up: 351-400 (Jeroen)

Posted: 6th February 2015 by Jeroen in Round-Up

It has been an interesting 50 – between finishing the now-removed games and Peter’s blog guiding our decisions, we’ve been a bit more structured than before, while trying to keep our stats in check as well (we’ll have a Wii game in the next 50, I promise). At the same time, now that we’re here […]

400th played so far Genre: Management Simulation Platform: Various Year of Release: 1994 Developer: Bullfrog Productions Publisher: Electronic Arts Oh Theme Park, how we’ve been looking forward to playing this. I remember playing this at a cousin’s place and being so impressed with it I wanted to see more. Because I had no other real […]
