622nd played so far Genre: Music Platform: Playstation Year of Release: 1999 Developer: NanaOn-Sha Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment A line moves in tune to the music. A bunny, sort of made from that line as well, moves alongside. Rhythm game controls let you do so. It looks stylish, if simple, if that makes sense, and […]

604th played so far Genre: Strategy/Role-Playing Platform: Neo Geo Pocket Color Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Sacnoth Publisher: SNK Faselei! is a game that I’ve spent a lot of time trying to find out more about, but one that’s quite tricky to do so.

593rd played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 1999 Developer: id Software Publisher: Activision A bit of a jump in genre here.

440th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Arcade/Dreamcast/PC Year of Release: 1999 Developer: AM1/Sims Publisher: Sega Up until now, my knowledge of fishing has been theoretical.

422nd played so far Genre: Survival Horror Platform: Playstation Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Konami Publisher: Konami The days are getting longer again and that means that there’s enough light to play more survival horror games – something that would probably fit in the dark, but not when you’re feeling jumpy.
