629th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Amiga/Atari ST Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Paul Holmes Publisher: Activision There’s a lot of randomness in game selection. In the case of Hunter, it’s because it always makes me think it’s some early 3Dish shooter, while in reality it seems to be something quite different – similar […]

572nd played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Square Publisher: Square It’s been a while since we covered the Final Fantasy series, isn’t it?

543rd played so far Genre: Sports Platform: NES Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Tecmo Publisher: Tecmo Time for another sports game I don’t know much about! I’ll be watching the Superbowl at some point, but until then most of my knowledge of American football comes from the theory of how it’s meant to work, bits […]

528th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Tokyo Shoseki Publisher: Nintendo It feels like there are a fair amount of tennis games on the list. I suppose it’s the standard approach – Pong started it, and even afterwards it’s a pretty simple formula to start with as a sports […]

512th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Park Place Productions Publisher: EA Sports Time for another sports game – hockey again.

485th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo Time for some more Zelda! It’s been over a hundred games (and over a year) since we played the original Legend of Zelda, at which point we were quite behind anyway. The NES game in the series sticks in […]

463rd played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Various Year of Release: 1991 Developer: DMA Design Publisher: Psygnosis Lemmings… DMA Design’s biggest success story until they created Grand Theft Auto, one of the biggest gaming franchises – the biggest western and non-Nintendo one based on numbers sold. But yes, before that (and before the wonderfully weird […]

443rd played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 1991 Developer: LucasArts Publisher: LucasArts It’s honestly surprising to me that it’s been nearly a year since we played The Secret of Monkey Island – we really enjoyed it and breezed through it, helped with me remembering half the puzzles. I have also played […]

431st played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: PC Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Interplay Publisher: Interplay The Star Trek TV series is a surprising resilient science fiction series – between tv series, movies and recent revivals it has been around for 49 years now (at the time of writing).

426th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo This game feels like one of those games everyone has heard of – as a SNES launch title, nearly everyone probably played it and has good memories of it. The sequel to Super Mario Bros. 3 – I understand […]
