647th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Xbox Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Oddworld Inhabitants Publisher: Electronic Arts We played Oddworld games before, as a story based platformer that was about these characters gaining freedom. Here, a few games later in the series, we get a 3D action adventure instead, quite a different challenge. I’m […]

636th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Game Boy Color Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Capcom/Flagship Publisher: Nintendo These games have a bit of a special place in my heart. I got these games when I got my Gameboy Advance – the first Gameboy I owned – and it was special. Like the Pokemon games […]

629th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Amiga/Atari ST Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Paul Holmes Publisher: Activision There’s a lot of randomness in game selection. In the case of Hunter, it’s because it always makes me think it’s some early 3Dish shooter, while in reality it seems to be something quite different – similar […]

624th played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Activision Publisher: Infocom Zork is, as we’ve discussed before, one of the most important and best known text adventures. Return to Zork is a point and click instead, from a first person perspective, and with some live actors like we’ve seen in […]

621th played so far Genre: Strategy/Adventure Platform: ZX Spectrum Year of Release: 1984 Developer: Mike Singleton Publisher: Beyond Software I sort of remember Lords of Midnight. I was a lot younger, but cousins had it on an old computer system and we (sort of) used to try it. I’m not sure I ever understood quite […]

602nd played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 1985 Developer: Novagen I think I underestimated Mercenary slightly. All this time, I thought it was another shoot ’em up, which is frequent in this era, and certainly not the action/adventure we’re getting here. What it is, is a game that has you crash […]

600th played so far Genre: Adventure/Fighting Platform: PC/Xbox 360/Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Rocksteady Studios Publisher: Eidos Interactive Although this was a big milestone game that I normally look forward to, it took me a while to actually get to it – the past few months (as of the time of writing) have […]

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 […]

569th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Game Boy Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo Although we had been jumping around the Legend of Zelda canon early in the blog’s life, lately I’ve been trying to get through them in order. Today is the first handheld outing, with one of the stranger stories […]
