773rd played so far Genre: Life Simulation/Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Maxis Publisher: Electronic Arts It sounds like a Molyneux-like pitch, a game where you start off as a bacteria-like organism, evolve and grow a civilization until you reach space. It was, however, proposed by the other sim genre great, Will Wright […]

740th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Mossmouth, LLC Publisher: Mossmouth, LLC When listening to recent gaming podcasts, people whose taste I generally agree with or at least respect mention Spelunky as a game they really enjoy, its daily challenges especially being something they love to engage in as […]

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. Bionic Commando seems to have been a rather beloved NES game with some impressive time attacks. I doubt the latter factored into […]

696th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Insomniac Games Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment Some of the games I’ve picked randomly on this list were very much “Yeah, that’s a game I should just check off”. Reistance 2 feels like an FPS, hailed for its large number of […]

693rd played so far Genre: Role-Playing/Life Simulation Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Atlus Publisher: Atlus/Square Enix I really enjoyed Persona 3 when I played it some time ago, more than I thought I would, with the life simulation aspects really appealing to me. I’d been holding off for a bit, but the […]

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. There are ten of them on the list, we’ve been doing them every 100 nearish to the end and when it came up […]

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 […]
