515th played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: PC/Saturn/PlayStation 1 Year of Release: 1995 Developer: Activision Publisher: Activision MechWarrior 2 is a game I’ve been eyeing up for quite some time – I owned it even though I didn’t necessarily get around to playing it. It’s not quite my typical game, but I remember the fun […]

514th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up/Fighting Platform: PC/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: ACE Team Publisher: ACE Team/Atlus I’m not quite sure where to put Zeno Clash in the list of games for me. The concept looks interesting, but at the same time a first person brawler isn’t normally my thing. The […]

513th played so far Genre: Interactive Fiction Platform: PC Year of Release: 2012 Developer: Blendo Games Described as a first-person adventure game, I didn’t really know what to expect from Thirty Flights of Loving before I started. It’s the story of a heist, but the main thing that stood out from what I’d seen is […]

512th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Park Place Productions Publisher: EA Sports Time for another sports game – hockey again. NHL Hockey, unlike its more recent brother NHL 10, has stayed on the list of games – as you’d expect from an older game, really. I can’t […]

511th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Various Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Activision Publisher: Activision With there being 1021 games on the revised list, here we are – the actual, true halfway point of the list. And I’ll admit that Alter Ego wasn’t our planned halfway point (that game will follow at some point), […]

510th played so far Genre: Action Platform: PC/Playstation 2/X-Box Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Rockstar North Publisher: Rockstar Games It’s always nice to reach a Grand Theft Auto game, as it has always had a good core gameplay while the 3D games have slowly been hammering out some control issues – Grand Theft Auto Vice […]

509th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Various Year of Release: 1984 Developer: Lucasfilm Games Publisher: Atari I’m not quite sure what to say of Ballblazer, as in my mind it’s just on the list, without any notable qualities. An early sports game that sounds somewhat soccer-like, with a sci fi veneer but also limited […]

508th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Bizarre Creations Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios Some games seem to start small and grow big almost by standing out from where it came from. Geometry Wars wasn’t released on its own, it was a minigame in Project Gotham Racing […]
