654th played so far Genre: Strategy/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Legend Entertainment Publisher: Accolade There are a bunch of hybrid games, that combine two genres that don’t normally fit together, but manage it with their own spin. Prior to starting Star Control 3, I’d already seen parts of its predecessor […]

653rd played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Intelligent Systems Publisher: Nintendo Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door came up the week before I played it, but as I needed more time to it, I wanted to dedicate a day to it – something I did today (as I write this). […]

652nd played so far Genre: Flight Simulator/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 2001 Developer: 1C:Maddox Games Publisher: 1C/Ubisoft So we’ve had another random game, and this one worked quite well – I needed another flight sim and, with two games in the series, IL-2 Sturmovik was a good one.

651st played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Amiga Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Bullfrog Productions Publisher: Electronic Arts Selecting the order of games for the list can be tricky and mostly comes down to what I fancy at the time – for genre reasons or because I just really want to play something from a […]

650th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Dreamcast/Xbox Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Sega AM2 Publisher: Sega/Microsoft Game Studios 650 in! It’s a pretty minor milestone, with the two thirds check that’s coming up being more significant, but I’m always excited with a new 50 and the way I get to update my stats and […]

649th played so far Genre: Platform/Fighting Platform: PSP Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Tose Publisher: Capcom I’ve not done the best at Ghosts ‘n Goblins or Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, two arcade platformers that, by virtue of being arcade games, are pretty difficult. By 2006, however, arcades are no longer the primary way of playing games […]

648th played so far Genre: Maze Platform: Various Year of Release: 1984 Developer: First Star Software Publisher: First Star Software It might be that I’ve been focusing on a few other 1001 more lately, but that cover really reminds me of comic magazines. It’s an interesting impression – not quite what I was expecting. So […]

647th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Xbox Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Oddworld Inhabitants Publisher: Electronic Arts We played Oddworld games before, as a story based platformer that was about these characters gaining freedom. Here, a few games later in the series, we get a 3D action adventure instead, quite a different challenge. I’m […]

646th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2007 Developer: GSC Game World Publisher: GSC Game World/THQ The S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series has been on my list for quite some time, as an open world post apocalyptic shooter is the sort of thing I’ve grown to enjoy – a Fallout 3 without RPG […]
