1003rd played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: PC Year of Release: 1995 Developer: LucasArts Publisher: LucasArts While I missed out playing some minor titles – Labyrinth and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade – I have played all the really known Lucasarts adventure games once I’ve played today’s game. I haven’t quite finished all of […]

1002nd played so far Genre: Pinball Platform: Various Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Farsight Studios Publisher: Crave Entertainment/Play It Unlike my edutainment games, I got my pinball games spread out quite well, with Pinball Dreams coming in fairly early and Flipnic fitting pretty neatly between that game and today. I’m pretty sure it’s also the […]

1001th played so far Genre: Interactive Fiction Platform: Various Year of Release: 1984 Developer: Infocom Publisher: Infocom So this is weird. If there had not been a second edition of the book, I would be done now – instead I’m going into overtime. I’m playing the final double digit game – it was the last […]

48 Game Round Up: 951-998 (Jeroen)

Posted: 16th September 2021 by Jeroen in Round-Up

As discussed yesterday, we’re not quite biting off another 50, but this close to the end I wanted to get my round up in a bit early so we have a clean run to the end. I’ll have to admit that writing this post feels more difficult than normal. Being in the final rush to […]

It’s time for a brief intermission before we get ready for the end game. While game 998 might not sound like an odd point to do so, there is some meaning behind it – by our definition of genres, there are 25 genres left. We finished two of those a long time ago – Wii […]

998th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Gamecube/Wii Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo As I’m starting to round up games, it’s time to say goodbye to another major franchise. I’ve always enjoyed the look of The Legend of Zelda series, my experience was always with the original 2D entries, with the […]

It was incredibly difficult, but […]

996th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Volition Publisher: Interplay Entertainment I covered Descent a little while ago as an odd blast from the past. That game got a couple of sequels until we got Descent: Freespace, which started to take place in an open space rather […]
