604th played so far Genre: Strategy/Role-Playing Platform: Neo Geo Pocket Color Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Sacnoth Publisher: SNK Faselei! is a game that I’ve spent a lot of time trying to find out more about, but one that’s quite tricky to do so. Released for the rather small Neo Geo Pocket Color, this strategy […]

603rd played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Saturn Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Sega The genre of fighting games is pretty broad as used here, and has a tendency to overlap with the action genre. Here it isn’t the one-on-one fighting you might get from, say, Street Fighter, but it’s closer to the […]

602nd played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 1985 Developer: Novagen I think I underestimated Mercenary slightly. All this time, I thought it was another shoot ’em up, which is frequent in this era, and certainly not the action/adventure we’re getting here. What it is, is a game that has you crash […]

601st played so far Genre: Platform/Puzzle Platform: Various Year of Release: 2010 Developer: Playdead Publisher: Playdead We begin the next hundred with another known indie game. Limbo is a platformer that gained a good reputation for its implicit storytelling and world it creates in a platformer setting. I never actually had a chacne to play […]

600th played so far Genre: Adventure/Fighting Platform: PC/Xbox 360/Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Rocksteady Studios Publisher: Eidos Interactive Although this was a big milestone game that I normally look forward to, it took me a while to actually get to it – the past few months (as of the time of writing) have […]

599th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1987 Developer: Technos Japan Publisher: Taito When I was younger, one of our NES games (that I played over and over) was Double Dragon III, a fun two player beat ’em up that we invested a lot of time in – even if I’m […]

598th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Sega AM 2 Publisher: Sega Some time ago we played Sega Rally Championship, as an arcade machine while we wer visiting Euro Disney. This game is two years younger, again as an arcade cabinet, and so we basically go back even further […]

597th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Rockstar Leeds Publisher: Rockstar Games As there are 10 GTA series games on the list of 1001, we tend to play one every 100 games – and as, per tradition, the first games in the series were played at the 100 […]

596th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Keen Games Publisher: Disney Interactive I’ve always wanted to play the Anno series. The basic ideas of village building and economy handling is one that appeals to me, as previously discussed for The Settlers, it scratches this vaguely simulationist itch. Out […]
