825th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Griptonite Games Publisher: THQ The obvious route when adapting a real time strategy game like the Age of Empires series to consoles and handhelds is to make it turn based. You often need precision mouse movement and a lot of different […]

821st played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: EA Dice Publisher: Electronic Arts After having played many Battlefield games, both Battlefield 1942 and 1943 made it clear to me how much of this is a multiplayer franchise and that the multiplayer FPS has no appeal for me. […]

796th played so far Genre: Survival Horror/Stealth Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Project Siren Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment Siren Blood Curse has been living on our PS3’s hard drive as quite a chunky download for some time now.

737th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Bizarre Creations Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios After playing the first Geometry Wars game, I felt we played a nice shoot ’em up that was nice in shorter bursts.

717th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: PC/Xbox 360/Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Grin Publisher: Capcom For some games on this list, we are playing the remake rather than the original.
