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.

799th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco Racing and driving games are interesting entries on the list. They are quite well suited to the arcade when provided with time limits, but removing that would make them work for a console as well. They’re usually non violent, […]

782nd played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade/Playstation 1/Dreamcast Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom I’ve played a bunch of Street Fighter games before and, well, I think they’ve been looking better over time.

761st played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1985 Developer: Tehkan Publisher: Tecmo It’s amazing how many football games are in the list and in particular how far they are spread throughout the years – other sports may have had their recent game stay on while FIFA 10 was booted off, but […]

727th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1984 Developer: Technos Japan Publisher: Data East So I don’t really look forward to these early fighting games – the genre isn’t the best in general and it’s not until the likes of Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter that we see some of the […]
