666th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Various Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Neversoft Publisher: Activision We’ve played a Tony Hawk game before, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2. That was fine, a skating game in preset arenas that felt mismatched – not that natural and, even though you’d always want to create a setting with […]

658th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade/Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Sega AM2 Publisher: Sega The Virtua Fighter series, as we saw with the first game, is a series that, for me, still feels like it introduced 3D fighting and created far more open arenas. Quite some time on, we’re now […]

649th played so far Genre: Platform/Fighting Platform: PSP Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Tose Publisher: Capcom I’ve not done the best at Ghosts ‘n Goblins or Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, two arcade platformers that, by virtue of being arcade games, are pretty difficult. By 2006, however, arcades are no longer the primary way of playing games […]

589th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Human Head Studios Publisher: 2K Games Ignore the category above – this is an FPS that just wasn’t categorised by the book as one, while we didn’t pick up on it earlier. Now the stats drive us forward, and […]

584th played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: PC/XBox Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Funcom Publisher: Aspyr/Empire Interactive After starting The Longest Journey for the blog a few years ago, I kept playing it on and off to truely get through the game. One of the big reasons for it was that I enjoyed the game […]

556th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Playstation 2/Playstation Portable Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Ignition Banbury Publisher: SCEI/Ignition Entertainment/Atari Mercury Meltdown and its sequel Mercury Meltdown Revolution are games that have intrigued me from the first time I saw them on the list. Moving blobs of mercury around a field sounds like an odd […]

#714 Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3

541st played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Atlus Publisher: Atlus Persona 3 is an interesting game. Part dungeon descending role playing game, part life sim role playing game. That’s not really a revelation – it’s sort of what the Shin Megami Tensei series is based on. The fourth […]

#692 Yakuza 2

534th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Sega Publisher: Sega Going into this, I have seen Yakuza 2 listed as an open world action game – an eastern Grand Theft Auto, like Sleeping Dogs. Perhaps with less of an open world, but a similar mission structure and world […]

#695 Eets: Hunger. It’s Emotional

Tags: , , , ,

518th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: PC/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Klei Entertainment For some reason I keep thinking of this game as something more actionny – maybe something more Angry Birds-like, or Tetris-style catch/move items that are falling. It isn’t though, and on some level I know that – the game […]

488th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Introversion Software Publisher: Introversion Software We’ve played a few of Introversion’s games before – Darwinia was fun if a bit strange, while Uplink was an early fun discovery for us while doing the blog. The last of the three games on the […]
