536th played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 1993 Developer: LucasArts Publisher: LucasArts I’ll admit, playing Day of the Tentacle today was self-indulgence.

415th played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 1992 Developer: LucasArts Publisher: LucasArts It has become clear, by now, that we enjoy Lucasarts’ adventures, from the gratuitously violent Sam and Max Hit the Road to the wonderful stories of Loom.

392nd played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Lucasfilm Games Publisher: Lucasfilm Games Loom has been on my radar for quite a while.

171st played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Xbox/PC Year of Release: 2003 Developer: BioWare Publisher: LucasArts It’s interesting to see how many Star Wars game have ended up in the list. As much of a bad reputation licensed games have – a result of many of them having been generic platformers with updated graphics and, […]
