757th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: ZX Spectrum Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Julian Gollop Publisher: Firebird Software I’ve been staring at the Rebelstar series for a while. The list has a sequel in name only, in that it’s a tactical game with the same name, but not necessarily many other links between them. […]

756th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco/Electronic Arts I remember really getting into Katamari Damacy, with dodgy controls, but a decent concept that appealed enough to me. In fact, I keep looking out for news of rereleases for it as that might solve those problems. […]

754th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Xbox Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Team Ninja Publisher: Tecmo The video games list has a sad group of repeat entries, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes being the most quoted remake on the list. Ninja Gaiden Black is another – a remake of the original Ninja Gaiden […]

753rd played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC/XBox Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Starbreeze Studios/Tigon Studios Publisher: Vivendi Universal Games Although tie in games are usually seen as bad, we have seen some good ones – Goldeneye is the one that everyone loves, while Star Wars arguably has some games that are better than […]

752nd played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Factor 5/LucasArts Publisher: LucasArts I had yet to kick off two Star Wars game series.

751st played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Gameboy Advance/Wii Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Skip Ltd. Publisher: Nintendo At this point, two different tasks I’m doing cross. The game after each landmark is informally reserved for a more indie game, while there are two games in the Art Style series, so it’s time I start […]

50 Game Round Up: 701-750 (Jeroen)

Posted: 3rd January 2019 by Jeroen in Round-Up

Here we go: Three quarters of the way through the list, it’s really starting to feel like the grind continues. There are a bunch of good games coming up – yeah, we’ve saved enough of them – and there’s a lot of what’s filler to me, the shoot ’em ups and such that I’ve never […]

750th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Squaresoft Publisher: Square/Sony Computer Entertainment Happy new year! And happy 750th game landmark! It’s pure coincidence the two coincided, but I quite like that both happen at the same time. My search for a big game to play coincided with my quest […]
