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.

566th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Atari Games Publisher: Atari Games After a break, back to the Midway collection.

562nd played so far Genre: Action Platform: Arcade Year of Release:  1987 Developer: Atari Games Publisher: Atari Games Early 3D games are weirdly fascinating to me.

442nd played so far Genre: Strategy/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Bohemia Interactive Publisher: 505 Games/Atari Games There are a lot of army-based shooters out there – Call of Duty has, depending on your perspective, either a lot to answer for or set a good example.
