632nd played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Next Level Games Publisher: Nintendo When I started playing this, I thought I’d already played Super Punch-Out, but I turned out to be wrong.

575th played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: PC/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Runic Games Publisher: Runic Games I’m not quite sure why I’ve taken so long to try Torchlight – other than there being so many other games to play for the list.

514th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up/Fighting Platform: PC/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: ACE Team Publisher: ACE Team/Atlus I’m not quite sure where to put Zeno Clash in the list of games for me.
