651st played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Amiga Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Bullfrog Productions Publisher: Electronic Arts Selecting the order of games for the list can be tricky and mostly comes down to what I fancy at the time – for genre reasons or because I just really want to play something from a […]

50 Game Round Up: 601-650 (Jeroen)

Posted: 25th November 2017 by Jeroen in Round-Up

Another fifty done, and the work continues – I wouldn’t call it a grind, but we’re not in the most interesting stretch right now, more just business as usual. It’s time to try and draw some games from the list that stood out in this set of games. Best Game I Had Not Previously Played […]

650th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Dreamcast/Xbox Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Sega AM2 Publisher: Sega/Microsoft Game Studios 650 in! It’s a pretty minor milestone, with the two thirds check that’s coming up being more significant, but I’m always excited with a new 50 and the way I get to update my stats and […]

649th played so far Genre: Platform/Fighting Platform: PSP Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Tose Publisher: Capcom I’ve not done the best at Ghosts ‘n Goblins or Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, two arcade platformers that, by virtue of being arcade games, are pretty difficult. By 2006, however, arcades are no longer the primary way of playing games […]

648th played so far Genre: Maze Platform: Various Year of Release: 1984 Developer: First Star Software Publisher: First Star Software It might be that I’ve been focusing on a few other 1001 more lately, but that cover really reminds me of comic magazines. It’s an interesting impression – not quite what I was expecting. So […]

647th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Xbox Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Oddworld Inhabitants Publisher: Electronic Arts We played Oddworld games before, as a story based platformer that was about these characters gaining freedom. Here, a few games later in the series, we get a 3D action adventure instead, quite a different challenge. I’m […]

646th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2007 Developer: GSC Game World Publisher: GSC Game World/THQ The S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series has been on my list for quite some time, as an open world post apocalyptic shooter is the sort of thing I’ve grown to enjoy – a Fallout 3 without RPG […]

645th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Left Field Productions Publisher: Nintendo The original Excitebike game isn’t on the list. I’ve been exposed to it many times, most recently thanks to the excellent NES Remix, and it’s part of the classics that you associate with the NES – […]
