541st played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Atlus Publisher: Atlus Persona 3 is an interesting game.

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.

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.

Here’s a game that’s started lingering in my conciousness for about a year now and it’s been intriguing. Sort of a Minecraft predecessor, it seems like a game that allows you to do… […]

456th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Big Huge Games Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios We loved Rise of Nations when we played it.
