727th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1984 Developer: Technos Japan Publisher: Data East So I don’t really look forward to these early fighting games – the genre isn’t the best in general and it’s not until the likes of Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter that we see some of the […]

726th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Relic Entertainment Publisher: THQ When it comes to the universe, I’ve always been a fantasy player.

724th played so far Genre: Music Platform: Dreamcast Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: Sega The Dreamcast era really was one for weird peripherals. We saw this with Sega Bass Fishing (although I avoided it there by playing the PC version) and a few years later with the massive setup that came with […]

723rd played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Vanillaware Publisher: Marvellous Games/Ignition Entertainment/Rising Star Games For some games, the title is enough to get you excited.
