545th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1982 Developer: Bally Midway Publisher: Bally Midway I was listening to a podcast yesterday that talked about movies made from video games, and movies made concerning video games (even if they’re not real) and somehow Tron didn’t come up. This is the videogame of […]

544th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2010 Developer: Rockstar San Diego Publisher: Rockstar Games Even before it appeared on this list, Peter had played this wild west Grand Theft Auto.

541st played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Atlus Publisher: Atlus Persona 3 is an interesting game. Part dungeon descending role playing game, part life sim role playing game. That’s not really a revelation – it’s sort of what the Shin Megami Tensei series is based on. The fourth […]

540th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: SCE San Diego Studio Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment I’ve been enjoying a number of action/adventures for the blog – the likes of Ratchet and Clank and Uncharted often being amusing (assuming combat is handled well).

539th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Playstation 3/Playstation Portable/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Rockstar San Diego/Rockstar London Publisher: Rockstar Games Rockstar made a racing game! You know, the group probably best known for the Grand Theft Auto series (once it goes third person). Racing games are always a mixed bag for me […]
