771st played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: PC Year of Release: 1992 Developer: Origin Systems Publisher: Origin Systems The Ultima series of games rather intimidates me.

567th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Various Year of Release: 1992 Developer: Midway Games Publisher: Midway Games What a glorious game for Boxing day, right?
