783rd played so far Genre: Action Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Amusement Vision Publisher: Sega Anyone who knows us is probably not surprised that as I write this, we’re going through a fairly major monkey phase.

699th played so far Genre: Adventure/Platform Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Skip Ltd.
