806th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: PC Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Stainless Games Publisher: Sales Curve Interactive/Interplay Entertainment Carmageddon is one of those games that felt like a transition to adulthood for me.

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, […]

735th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Tatsumi Publisher: Tatsumi There are a bunch of games that look like Buggy Boy, racers from a pre-3D era, running down a semi endless track that relies on sprite scaling to get the illusion of racing forward. Out Run is the canonical […]

671st played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Playstation 3/Xbox 360/PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Criterion Games Publisher: Electronic Arts I mostly remember Burnout 2 as a chaotic racer whose big selling point was a big crashing mode that felt especially exciting and plainly fun to play.

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. Nevertheless, I’ve probably played the game more that way than I ever would have otherwise. […]

523rd played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1988 Developer: Sega Publisher: Sega I’m not sure why we’re playing Power Drift today.
