787th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up/Strategy Platform: PC/Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Codemasters Publisher: Codemasters I’m starting to feel more apathetic towards these military shooters. They’re big and popular, but while some Call of Duty games can sort of manage to draw me in, the first iteration of Operation Flashpoint […]

786th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Ensemble Studios Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios I’ve played some console strategy games before, they lean more towards the tactical – something like Final Fantasy Tactics or Valkyria Chronicles, where you have a predefined set of units that you control individually. Larger […]

785th played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Various Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Ubisoft Montreal Publisher: Ubisoft The original Prince of Persia was a stand out platformer, its animation standing out but the full game having a story and set up that was quite appealing. It’s a game where straight up sequels could never quite […]

783rd played so far Genre: Action Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Amusement Vision Publisher: Sega Anyone who knows us is probably not surprised that as I write this, we’re going through a fairly major monkey phase. There’s a monkey pillow, some small decorations and quite a few in joke references that I won’t […]

782nd played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade/Playstation 1/Dreamcast Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom I’ve played a bunch of Street Fighter games before and, well, I think they’ve been looking better over time. Now while this might seem like another variation of the third game, based on the title, it’s actually part […]

781st played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Evolution Studios Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment I feel like I’ve played Motorstorm, the first game in the series, fairly recently (about a year and a half ago), but as I am approaching the end of the list these two entry series […]

780th played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: PC Year of Release: 1995 Developer: LucasArts Publisher: LucasArts I’m still excited to see all these LucasArts games. I’ve played a bunch of them once, but never got Full Throttle. When I was younger, I think the theming put me off a bit, but it’s been cited as […]
