791st played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Nintendo EAD Tokyo Publisher: Nintendo Donkey Konga gave the world a Donkey Kong-themed music game using a custom bongo controller. Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat took those same controllers, but turned it into a platformer. An actual platformer, not a rhythm game skinned […]

726th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Relic Entertainment Publisher: THQ When it comes to the universe, I’ve always been a fantasy player. There’s some interesting bits about the 40k universe, but nothing in it ever really tempted me. Sadly, until Total War: Warhammer, it hasn’t been greatly represented […]

714th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Gameboy Advance Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Capcom/Flagship Publisher: Nintendo In the past year or so, I’ve been playing a lot of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the Zelda game that combines the open world of an Assassins Creed game with the world of The […]

704th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Popcap Games Publisher: Popcap Games I’ve been getting invested in match three games for a bunch of reasons recently and, while I was looking through the list, realised that the grand daddy of them all, Bejeweled, had two of its sequels on […]

668th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Valve Corporation Publisher: Valve Corporation The Half-Life series is one of the big ones that revolutionised story telling in games and really pushed the FPS genre forward.

656th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Playstation 2/Xbox/PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Supersonic Software Publisher: Empire Interactive Mashed is another racing game. Third person, at what looks like an over the shoulder perspective – something that seem rarer, most games that I can think of in the genre are either from inside the […]

653rd played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Intelligent Systems Publisher: Nintendo Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door came up the week before I played it, but as I needed more time to it, I wanted to dedicate a day to it – something I did today (as I write this).

630th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: ABA Games I have ragged on Tempest derivatives before, as often they seem to add some slightly fancier graphics (with still a retro look) without really making the game feel that much better. Torus Trooper derives from that formula yet […]

Only some of them make it to the west, such […]
