812th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: PC Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Looking Glass Technologies Publisher: Origin Systems/Electronic Arts There are a few games that I vividly remember being introduced to through the library.

779th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: EA Dice Publisher: Electronic Arts Time to get back to the Battlefield series, since I still have two to go and won’t enjoy them much more this time. Especially since, from what I have been able to determine, Battlefield […]

778th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Amblin Entertainment/EA Los Angeles Publisher:Electronic Arts The Wii is, or was, a popular platform for puzzle games.

774th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Various Year of Release: 1985 Developer: Interplay Productions Publisher: Electronic Arts I only rarely play the old RPGs, even though I enjoy digging into that history sometimes.

773rd played so far Genre: Life Simulation/Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Maxis Publisher: Electronic Arts It sounds like a Molyneux-like pitch, a game where you start off as a bacteria-like organism, evolve and grow a civilization until you reach space. It was, however, proposed by the other sim genre great, Will Wright […]

746th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Various Year of Release: 2009 Developer: EA Tiburon Publisher: Electronic Arts I’ve mentioned my general discomfort with sports games before, as a genre that I don’t get much out of.

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.
