697th played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: Various Year of Release: 1984 Developer: First Star Software Publisher: Beyond Software/Tynesoft/Wicked Software/Kemco I remember playing Spy vs Spy with friends about… 20 years ago maybe? Probably a few more than that, but probably about a decade after its first release. I only remember bits of it, but […]

50 Game Round Up: 551-600 (Jeroen)

Posted: 9th May 2017 by Jeroen in Uncategorized

After a rather exciting fifty that featured us making it halfway through the list, these fifty were a lot more basic. At this point, we’re happily coasting along, trying to smooth out any genre outliers (I like having a nice mix) and doing some catching up. There have been some pretty exciting games as well […]

50 Game Round Up: 501-550 (Jeroen)

Posted: 20th October 2016 by Jeroen in Uncategorized

Another fifty gone – the one where we crossed the halfway point and started moving down the hill – it makes the project seem more attainable now. We also did the one game that felt impossible for a long time – another milestone met. Just another five years to go! Best Game I Had Not […]

Short Break

Posted: 10th October 2015 by Jeroen in Uncategorized

Thank you all for reading! Because of a bunch of good news happy things, we’ll not be near any laptops or other blog updating machines for a good part of the month and we’ll be focusing on other matters. As you are reading this, for example, we might well be cutting a cake. To minimize […]

352nd played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1980 Developer: Atari Publisher: Atari Oldie time! The very plain and boring reason we’re playing this today is that we were going through the book, updating our checks on games we’ve covered, and we accidentally went one too far and checked Missile […]

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 […]

Beware The New List

Posted: 22nd June 2012 by Mulholland in Uncategorized

Like the swords of Damocles there is a grim spectre hanging over this blog called the revised edition of 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die. If you keep a finger on the pulse of gaming (or just read a lot of gaming websites and magazines) then it is easy to see which […]

In the interest of full disclosure…

Posted: 26th February 2012 by Jeroen in Uncategorized

For the few regular readers that keep track of this and feel this would influence them: I have recently started a job in the videogame industry. Mostly backend work at the moment, and not for a company currently in the list, but a job in the industry all the same. I’m not planning on having […]

2011: List Predictions

Posted: 3rd January 2012 by Mulholland in Uncategorized

Whenever we pick up a gaming magazine and have a flick through the reviews and previews there is a consistent thought that “if the list was redrafted would this make it?” It has been over a year since we started this blog and many gamers appear to agree that 2011 may have been one of, […]

MMORPGs and where we go next

Posted: 22nd August 2011 by Jeroen in Uncategorized

As you may have noticed, we’ve added polls to the blog and we’ve put the first one up. And this poll is the reason we added it. We had a slight realisation. While with most games, we’re capable of simply playing it, no matter what happens to the company, the MMORPGs have their own oddities. […]
