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.

391st played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Rebellion Publisher: Fox Interactive Alien is an amazing and suspenseful movies.
