746th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Various Year of Release: 2009 Developer: EA Tiburon Publisher: Electronic Arts I’ve mentioned my general discomfort with sports games before, as a genre that I don’t get much out of. I can understand why they’re popular and why people would enjoy them, but I often find them awkward […]

745th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Monolith Productions Publisher: Sierra Entertainment/Vivendi Universal Games/Warner Bros. Games Supernatural elements to the extent that F.E.A.R. seems to have, based on the reading I have done so far, are normally the domain of the survival horror. Resident Evil has some of […]

743rd played so far Genre: Platform Platform: ZX Spectrum Year of Release: 1984 Developer: Software Projects Publisher: Software Projects/Tynesoft Some games are on this list because of their legacy and place in history, rather than being the best out there – if you grew up with it, you probably consider it great, but it’s not […]

741st played so far Genre: Action Platform: DS Year of Release: 2007 Developer: indieszero Publisher: Namco Bandai Games/Xseed Games I feel I’ve referenced Ultimate NES Remix before, the game that takes old NES games and has you do a Warioware style minigame on a smaller part of it – see how well you do at […]

739th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Nintendo EAD Tokyo Publisher: Nintendo One of the struggles going through this list is to pace playing certain franchises so we don’t play them too soon, and the Mario series is a clear example of that – we playing the important Super […]

738th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Q Entertainment Publisher: Microsoft Studios There are a bunch of games that take after Tetris and the Lumines series always seemed like a worthy one. While not music or rhythm based, the game’s pace influenced the music in a way that […]

737th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Bizarre Creations Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios After playing the first Geometry Wars game, I felt we played a nice shoot ’em up that was nice in shorter bursts.
