805th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Atari Games Publisher: Atari Games While I’ve played Gauntlet before, as I said then, I’ve played its sequel before.

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.

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 […]

785th played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Various Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Ubisoft Montreal Publisher: Ubisoft The original Prince of Persia was a stand out platformer, its animation standing out but the full game having a story and set up that was quite appealing. It’s a game where straight up sequels could never quite […]

783rd played so far Genre: Action Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Amusement Vision Publisher: Sega Anyone who knows us is probably not surprised that as I write this, we’re going through a fairly major monkey phase.
