675th played so far Genre: Role-Playing/Puzzle Platform: PC Year of Release: 1995 Developer: Origin Systems Publisher: Electronic Arts I’m not sure quite where I stand with Bioforge. Graphically, and in vague theme, we have something that resembles an older version of System Shock, but it’s billed as an RPG/Puzzle/Adventure while the manual lists a bunch […]

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. The racing was supposed to be its focus […]

651st played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Amiga Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Bullfrog Productions Publisher: Electronic Arts Selecting the order of games for the list can be tricky and mostly comes down to what I fancy at the time – for genre reasons or because I just really want to play something from a […]

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 […]

637th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: EA Canada Publisher: Electronic Arts So following the Legend of Zelda games I played earlier this week, it felt time to do something more active. In this case, as I really should play both a Wii game and a sports game, some […]

611th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Irrational Games/Looking Glass Studios Publisher: Electronic Arts System Shock is an influential shooter, in part because it further develops the open world setup that we will in the future encounter in the Ultima Underworld series, but also because it leads into […]

574th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Digital Illusions Publisher: Electronic Arts There are four games on this list that are from the Battlefield franchise, with this one being the oldest. It’s another franchise of military shooters – the Call of Duty series coming from the same lineage. […]

527th played so far Genre: Life Simulation/Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Lionhead Studios Publisher: Electronic Arts Black & White isn’t a game we’re going into blindly. We’ve both played – I don’t think I ever finished it, but I always enjoyed playing the game a lot. Black & White is a god […]

504th played so far Genre: Survival Horror/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Visceral Games Publisher: Electronic Arts I remember enjoying Dead Space. It’s not a favourite, the genres the game consists of made sure of that, but it managed to strike the right balance of scares, tension and proper action. With […]

487th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Various Year of Release: 1983 Developer: Ozark Softscape Publisher: Electronic Arts After going on about how Exile (and other games) unnecessarily apply arcade-level coin gobbling difficulty to home games, it’s nice to shift gears to a game that won’t. While the arcade route is probably the biggest for […]
