783rd played so far Genre: Action Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Amusement Vision Publisher: Sega Anyone who knows us is probably not surprised that as I write this, we’re going through a fairly major monkey phase. There’s a monkey pillow, some small decorations and quite a few in joke references that I won’t […]

782nd played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade/Playstation 1/Dreamcast Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom I’ve played a bunch of Street Fighter games before and, well, I think they’ve been looking better over time. Now while this might seem like another variation of the third game, based on the title, it’s actually part […]

781st played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Evolution Studios Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment I feel like I’ve played Motorstorm, the first game in the series, fairly recently (about a year and a half ago), but as I am approaching the end of the list these two entry series […]

780th played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: PC Year of Release: 1995 Developer: LucasArts Publisher: LucasArts I’m still excited to see all these LucasArts games. I’ve played a bunch of them once, but never got Full Throttle. When I was younger, I think the theming put me off a bit, but it’s been cited as […]

779th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: EA Dice Publisher: Electronic Arts Time to get back to the Battlefield series, since I still have two to go and won’t enjoy them much more this time. Especially since, from what I have been able to determine, Battlefield […]

778th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Amblin Entertainment/EA Los Angeles Publisher:Electronic Arts The Wii is, or was, a popular platform for puzzle games. In part, the controllers allow for a different experience that can tie into the genre well, but the system is also a big hit with […]

777th played so far Genre: Survival Horror Platform: PC/Xbox/Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo Publisher: Konami I was incredibly impressed by the first Silent Hill game. It had its control issues and its age showed, but the setting was good and tense and the puzzles worked quite well. We’ve also […]

774th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Various Year of Release: 1985 Developer: Interplay Productions Publisher: Electronic Arts I only rarely play the old RPGs, even though I enjoy digging into that history sometimes. I’ve played Eye of the Beholder and Ultima VII fairly recently and Bard’s Tale fits the dungeon crawler mode of the […]
