816th played so far Genre: Music Platform: Various Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Neversoft Publisher: Activision To be honest, at this point I feel like I need to get out the plastic instruments about once a year to cover all of the Guitar Hero and Rock Band game. The first Rock Band game, the most […]

802nd played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: AlphaDream Publisher: Nintendo I’ve started playing Bowser’s Inside Story about ten years ago, shortly after its release, but didn’t get too far – too many other games and this list distracted me far enough. I’ve enjoyed the formula though – as […]

797th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Treasure/Nintendo SPD Publisher: Nintendo It hasn’t been that long since I played Sin & Punishment, a rail shooter with quite a bit of movement that became quite chaotic and difficult to keep up with. It took nearly a decade for […]

788th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Chair Entertainment/Epic Games Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios At the point when this game was released, it felt like the Metroidvania (Metroid and Castlevania, referring to their large worlds with backtracking to find all the secrets as you unlock more powers). They’ve […]

787th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up/Strategy Platform: PC/Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Codemasters Publisher: Codemasters I’m starting to feel more apathetic towards these military shooters. They’re big and popular, but while some Call of Duty games can sort of manage to draw me in, the first iteration of Operation Flashpoint […]

786th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Ensemble Studios Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios I’ve played some console strategy games before, they lean more towards the tactical – something like Final Fantasy Tactics or Valkyria Chronicles, where you have a predefined set of units that you control individually. Larger […]

779th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: EA Dice Publisher: Electronic Arts Time to get back to the Battlefield series, since I still have two to go and won’t enjoy them much more this time. Especially since, from what I have been able to determine, Battlefield […]

778th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Amblin Entertainment/EA Los Angeles Publisher:Electronic Arts The Wii is, or was, a popular platform for puzzle games. In part, the controllers allow for a different experience that can tie into the genre well, but the system is also a big hit with […]

768th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: PC/Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Rockstar North Publisher: Rockstar Games I’m playing this set of one hundred’s GTA game nice and early. The final few don’t have quite as much staying power – The Lost and Damned, today’s entry, is an expansion pack sequel for […]

758th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up/Strategy Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Lobotomy Software/Snowblind Studios I remember playing a turn based tank shooter called Scorched Earth when I was younger, a game where you move tanks across a plan and shoot them with different weapons – the latter offering some strategy […]
