546th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1989 Developer: Westone Publisher: Sega The late 80s and early 90s were filled with platformers, which is probably the reason why it still seems like main mode of gaming. Even early 3D consoles focused on it, combining it with 3D graphics to create […]

512th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Park Place Productions Publisher: EA Sports Time for another sports game – hockey again.

310th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: Sega Wow. Back to Sonic already.

140th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Sega Some of the games we play are ones that we’re playing because they’re on the list, not for any affinity or initial interest. I’ll be honest – Gunstar Heroes started off as one of those. It’s […]

61st game played so far Genre: Platform/Shoot ’em Up Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1994 Developer: Shiny Entertainment Publisher: Playmates Interactive Entertainment/Virgin Interactive Despite how big it must have been in some points, Earthworm Jim seems to have only slightly hit my life, bypassing me most of the time.  There was a cartoon series […]
