856th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Dreamcast/Playstation 2/PC Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Game Arts Publisher: Game Arts/Enix/Ubisoft Every once in a while, I end up with a chance to sink a decent amount of time in a bigger game, and I’d been saving Grandia II for one of those games.

852nd played so far Genre: Simulation Platform: PC Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Egosoft Publisher: Deep Silver/Enlight While the Elite games define a genre, others take after them too.
