645th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Left Field Productions Publisher: Nintendo The original Excitebike game isn’t on the list.

482nd played so far Genre: Flight Simulator/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Zipper Interactive Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios For my birthday I got a proper, fully featured joystick, one of those gaming implements I still needed.

468th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Intelligent Systems Publisher: Nintendo Here’s a bit of a landmark. Thanks to Peter’s friend Kat’s help, we played quite a few Nintendo 64 games early on. And none since then as we simply didn’t need them. That means that this is […]

466th played so far Genre: Strategy/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Planet Moon Studios Publisher: Interplay Entertainment A game combining strategy and shoot ’em up strategies sounds like it could be pretty fun – although it might not be high up on my list now, Magic Carpet 2 was pretty enjoyable.

416th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Dreamcast Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom Some time ago (scary enough, two and a half years ago now) we got a Dreamcast and played a bunch of games from it in what we called Dreamfest.

200th played so far Genre: Life Simulation Platform: PC Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Maxis Publisher: Electronic Arts Guess what? We’ve reached the stage where we can now say that we have reached the point of having covered one game in every five! Also known as 20% this is such a landmark where it now […]

So yeah, as you can see we’re doing three games in one post – three arcade shoot ’em ups, in fact. Please allow me to explain. Today (as I’m writing this, that is), we were out in London for a private celebration and, having some time to spare, Peter suggested we’d visit the London Trocadero. […]
