694th played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Nintendo Wario is a bit of an odd one, isn’t he? Starting off as a villain, he took over platforming duties on the handhelds in his Wario Land series (until that went back to Mario again) when he moved to […]

693rd played so far Genre: Role-Playing/Life Simulation Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Atlus Publisher: Atlus/Square Enix I really enjoyed Persona 3 when I played it some time ago, more than I thought I would, with the life simulation aspects really appealing to me.

691st played so far Genre: Action Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1987 Developer: Sega Publisher: Sega I really should have played Shinobi earlier for the most mundane reason: There are two games on the list with the exact same name, just separated by a decade or so.

688th played so far Genre: Platform/Puzzle Platform: DS Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo From the different Mario spin offs, the Yoshi series feels like the most enduring, but also the one drawing most on Mario’s past, using enemies and really just being story prequels with a different protagonist. At the same time, […]

687th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Various Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Codemasters Publisher: Codemasters I’ve been enjoying racing games in the past – while loads get frustrating and I always feel unlikely to pick them up myself, I enjoy playing them as long as they go okay. Colin McRae: Dirt was an example […]
