650th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Dreamcast/Xbox Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Sega AM2 Publisher: Sega/Microsoft Game Studios 650 in!

633rd played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: PC Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Gas Powered Games Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios I’ve been looking forward to playing Dungeon Siege for a while.

563rd played so far Genre: Action/Role Playing Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Lionhead Studios Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios By the time you read this, Fable Fortune will have had its Kickstarter campaign, and so I can’t spoil much by saying I’ve worked a little bit on it.

538th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: Xb0x Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Bungie Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios And here we finally return to the Halo series.

508th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Bizarre Creations Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios Some games seem to start small and grow big almost by standing out from where it came from. Geometry Wars wasn’t released on its own, it was a minigame in Project Gotham Racing […]

482nd played so far Genre: Flight Simulator/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Zipper Interactive Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios For my birthday I got a proper, fully featured joystick, one of those gaming implements I still needed.

477th played so far Genre: Driving/Racing Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Turn 10 Studios Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios Forza Motorsport 2 is listed as a more serious racing game, with some additions to help the casual player – the brake line is mentioned in particular. It’s got a big enough reputation, but […]

456th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Big Huge Games Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios We loved Rise of Nations when we played it. It was a good mix of strategy gaming and civ-style simulation. Sure, Age of Empires has it similar, but the work and experience put in by […]

425th played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: PC/Xbox Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Big Blue Box/Lionhead Studios Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios How have we not covered the Fable series yet?

362nd played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Ensemble Studios Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios This is a game played out of order – Age of Empires is the parent series under which Age of Mythology falls – but we’ve played other games out of sequence before, so who cares, right?
