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.

677th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Xbox 360/Playstation 3/PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Rockstar North Publisher: Rockstar games The Grand Theft Auto series feels like it’s been a constant companion.

671st played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Playstation 3/Xbox 360/PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Criterion Games Publisher: Electronic Arts I mostly remember Burnout 2 as a chaotic racer whose big selling point was a big crashing mode that felt especially exciting and plainly fun to play. The racing was supposed to be its focus […]

615th played so far Genre: Puzzle/Platform Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Blue Tongue Entertainment Publisher: THQ I’ve been keeping an eye on De Blob since, I believe, just before the start of this blog, as an interesting game that seemed so different from everything else. Not to mention that the original version of […]
