674th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1984 Developer: Tehkan Publisher: Tehkan Here’s a simple one – again one of the oldest games on the list. The screenshots look a bit like Pang, but clearly you’re moving around what feels like a superhero rip off – Astro Boy with a Bat […]

670th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1989 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom Final Fight is not a one-on-one fighter (as I thought for some time) – instead it’s another beat ’em up like Double Dragon.

658th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade/Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Sega AM2 Publisher: Sega The Virtua Fighter series, as we saw with the first game, is a series that, for me, still feels like it introduced 3D fighting and created far more open arenas. Quite some time on, we’re now […]

634th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1987 Developer: Irem Publisher: Irem As we go back to the eighties, we get to one more of the many, many side scrolling shooters. I don’t mind them too much – they are fun enough, often having something good to look at […]

623th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1992 Developer: Sega Publisher: Sega We see a lot of experiments with 3D in the early nineties and I vaguely remember the Virtua series being at the forefront of it.

610th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Atari Games Publisher: Atari Games While earlier we played Portal 2 for its appearance in Lego Dimensions, Super Sprint instead appears in the game as a not-really-cameo.
