777th played so far Genre: Survival Horror Platform: PC/Xbox/Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo Publisher: Konami I was incredibly impressed by the first Silent Hill game. It had its control issues and its age showed, but the setting was good and tense and the puzzles worked quite well. We’ve also […]

749th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Bohemia Interactive Studio Publisher: Codemasters According to the book, this is the first soldier FPS – focused on the reality of participating in war rather than the shooter fantasies of, say, Quake (to use a not quite contemporary). More realistic […]

713th played so far Genre: Music Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Koei/iNis Publisher: Koei/THQ Gitaroo Man is a rhythm game that, from its cover, I always peg as a bit of a RPG game. What the cover doesn’t look like is how the game seems to be pegged – one where you […]

710th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Game Boy Advance Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Intelligent Systems Publisher: Nintendo The Mario Kart series is one that we have to cover a lot of entries for – and we covered them throughout, with Mario Kart 64 being an early game and Mario Kart DS making for […]

700th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo Another landmark! 700 already.

652nd played so far Genre: Flight Simulator/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 2001 Developer: 1C:Maddox Games Publisher: 1C/Ubisoft So we’ve had another random game, and this one worked quite well – I needed another flight sim and, with two games in the series, IL-2 Sturmovik was a good one. Not that I know […]

650th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Dreamcast/Xbox Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Sega AM2 Publisher: Sega/Microsoft Game Studios 650 in! It’s a pretty minor milestone, with the two thirds check that’s coming up being more significant, but I’m always excited with a new 50 and the way I get to update my stats and […]

636th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Game Boy Color Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Capcom/Flagship Publisher: Nintendo These games have a bit of a special place in my heart. I got these games when I got my Gameboy Advance – the first Gameboy I owned – and it was special. Like the Pokemon games […]

612th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC/Xbox/Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Gray Matter Interactive Publisher: Activision Wolfenstein 3D is certainly a notable game. It was amazing to see 3D done at the time, as a first person shooter. Horribly dated now, of course, but the technology was amazing at the time. […]

527th played so far Genre: Life Simulation/Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Lionhead Studios Publisher: Electronic Arts Black & White isn’t a game we’re going into blindly. We’ve both played – I don’t think I ever finished it, but I always enjoyed playing the game a lot. Black & White is a god […]
