50 Game Round Up: 651-700 (Jeroen)

Posted: 13th June 2018 by Jeroen in Round-Up

These most recent fifty have been interesting. Picking mostly random games, I had some big surprises (and some good games I threw back because I really had done too many of that genre). At times I’m unprepared, often I’m surprised, and at least I got to plan far enough ahead that I knew what sort […]

50 Game Round Up: 601-650 (Jeroen)

Posted: 25th November 2017 by Jeroen in Round-Up

Another fifty done, and the work continues – I wouldn’t call it a grind, but we’re not in the most interesting stretch right now, more just business as usual. It’s time to try and draw some games from the list that stood out in this set of games. Best Game I Had Not Previously Played […]

50 Game Round Up: 451-500 (Jeroen)

Posted: 3rd April 2016 by Jeroen in Round-Up

I’m not sure I would have expected to write this five years ago. Five hundred games in, we’re nearly halfway there, and the list becomes a lot more manageable – as much behind me as there is ahead. I don’t think I could answer all of these questions for a full 500 – I’ve been […]

50 Game Round Up: 401-450 (Jeroen)

Posted: 25th August 2015 by Jeroen in Round-Up

450! It’s weird – on one hand we’re already starting to plan the halfway point, while on the other hand it still seems far away – probably about six months at our current rate. Still, it’s all coming up, exciting times for the blog are ahead! For now, however, we look back. How were the […]

50 Game Round Up: 351-400 (Peter)

Posted: 7th February 2015 by Jeroen in Round-Up

In this lot of 50 I finally feel like we have been able to catch up on a lot of the years, genres and platforms that had been left behind previously. Our statistics now take on a more long-term view of what we play in the 50. I know that this sounds a little bit […]

50 Game Round Up: 351-400 (Jeroen)

Posted: 6th February 2015 by Jeroen in Round-Up

It has been an interesting 50 – between finishing the now-removed games and Peter’s blog guiding our decisions, we’ve been a bit more structured than before, while trying to keep our stats in check as well (we’ll have a Wii game in the next 50, I promise). At the same time, now that we’re here […]

50 Game Round Up: 301-350 (Peter)

Posted: 26th July 2014 by Jeroen in Round-Up, Uncategorized

If I am being honest my heart has not exactly been in this blog for the last 50. I have had such a turbulent time of it that there are a number of games where I just watched them being played rather than playing them myself since I had so much work to do in […]

50 Game Round Up: 301-350 (Jeroen)

Posted: 25th July 2014 by Jeroen in Round-Up

Woo! 350! Another batch of games done! And it’s been eventful – during this fifty we found out a new edition of the book had been released and we have to scramble to see how we can deal with this. Still, adding twenty games to the total project (with only 12 more obsoleted games to […]

50 Game Round Up: 251-300 (Peter)

Posted: 16th January 2014 by Mulholland in Round-Up

Never EVER again. You hear me? So many games were off-limits in this 100 that this blog became a huge chore at times. Whole series such as Mario and  Zelda became off-limits for a year whilst other games that we wanted to play or revisit have been neglected. In many ways it allowed us to […]

50 Game Round Up: 251-300 (Jeroen)

Posted: 15th January 2014 by Mulholland in Round-Up

So here we are, another fifty done. Fifty games I had not played before, which was an interesting introduction. It’s also made us decide not to go for these themes again, not for this long – it took too long to get through and blocked too many other games. Still, we made it, and the […]
