594th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: NES Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Rare Publisher: Nintendo/Sega For some reason, I kept confusing this game with Marble Madness for a long time. It doesn’t make any sense, none of it really matches, but the isometric perspective is similar and I haven’t looked much beyond screenshots. I’ll […]

569th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Game Boy Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo Although we had been jumping around the Legend of Zelda canon early in the blog’s life, lately I’ve been trying to get through them in order.

550th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: DS Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo About a decade ago, on my first holiday to London, I met up with a large group of people from the Pokemon site I did/do work on.

533rd played so far Genre: Action/First-Person Shooter Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Retro Studios Publisher: Nintendo The Metroid Prime series is Metroid done as a first-person shooter, an interesting variation on the theme that was experimental at the time.

528th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Tokyo Shoseki Publisher: Nintendo It feels like there are a fair amount of tennis games on the list. I suppose it’s the standard approach – Pong started it, and even afterwards it’s a pretty simple formula to start with as a sports […]

520th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo Somehow, Super Mario Sunshine is the mian series Mario game I’ve seen least of so far. I have seen some of the designs and seen the rough plot outline, but I’m not sure I’ve even seen it in […]

489th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Intelligent Systems Publisher: Nintendo One of the nice things of DS games is that we can put them on while watching some TV in the background, not needing full attention. It feels like a blessing here – with Japanese strategy/RPGish games, it […]

485th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo Time for some more Zelda! It’s been over a hundred games (and over a year) since we played the original Legend of Zelda, at which point we were quite behind anyway. The NES game in the series sticks in […]
