770th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Xbox/PC/Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Double Fine Productions Publisher: Majesco Entertainment I’ve been creating a bit of my buffer for these write ups, which has the handy side effects that I can use Christmas to play some longer games, rather than using it to catch up […]

769th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Spike Publisher: Spike/Agetec/505 Games I don’t get wrestling. I’m not even talking about fakeness or performances, I don’t really get the appeal of watching people fight. I think I struggled with that in the previous WWE game we discussed. Fire Pro […]

756th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco/Electronic Arts I remember really getting into Katamari Damacy, with dodgy controls, but a decent concept that appealed enough to me. In fact, I keep looking out for news of rereleases for it as that might solve those problems. […]

754th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Xbox Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Team Ninja Publisher: Tecmo The video games list has a sad group of repeat entries, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes being the most quoted remake on the list. Ninja Gaiden Black is another – a remake of the original Ninja Gaiden […]

745th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Monolith Productions Publisher: Sierra Entertainment/Vivendi Universal Games/Warner Bros. Games Supernatural elements to the extent that F.E.A.R. seems to have, based on the reading I have done so far, are normally the domain of the survival horror. Resident Evil has some of […]

742nd played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: PC Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Facepunch Studios Publisher: Valve Corporation Garry’s Mod, taken on its own, isn’t strictly a game. It’s a physics sandbox to either mess around in (which you could call a game, but without goals) or to play the maps, game modes and props […]

731st played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Various Year of Release: 2005 Developer: EA Canada Publisher: Electronic Arts I’ve always distantly admired the Need for Speed series. I remember the original being released and playing it with friends and enjoying the naughty feeling of being chased by the police and the thrill to speed along […]

699th played so far Genre: Adventure/Platform Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Skip Ltd. Publisher: Nintendo So there are a few action/adventure-like games left that feature you playing as a robot – aside from this, we’ve yet to play Rocket: Robot on Wheels, and I believe Space Station Silicon Valley is another. It means […]

688th played so far Genre: Platform/Puzzle Platform: DS Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo From the different Mario spin offs, the Yoshi series feels like the most enduring, but also the one drawing most on Mario’s past, using enemies and really just being story prequels with a different protagonist. At the same time, […]

679th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: DS Year of Release: 2005 Developer: AlphaDream Publisher: Nintendo Out of the various Mario RPGs, it feels like this is the one I played most – it was released early in the DS’s life and it gave me a good early game to play. For that reason, I […]
