584th played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: PC/XBox Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Funcom Publisher: Aspyr/Empire Interactive After starting The Longest Journey for the blog a few years ago, I kept playing it on and off to truely get through the game. One of the big reasons for it was that I enjoyed the game […]

581st played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: SCE Santa Monica Studio Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment The last time we visited Kratos, in God of War 2, Peter probably played more of it than I did. It’s down to experience and familiarity with the controller, as well as general […]

544th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2010 Developer: Rockstar San Diego Publisher: Rockstar Games Even before it appeared on this list, Peter had played this wild west Grand Theft Auto.

Perhaps with less of an open world, but a similar mission structure and world […]

517th played so far Genre: Adventure/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Naughty Dog Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment I don’t know why I haven’t played Uncharted before. While it isn’t my genre, it’s a big enough game that it feels like I would have given it a go – especially with […]
