680th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Ensemble Studios Publisher: Microsoft Age of Empires was an interesting one, one where I got stopped in what I normally feel is an annoying but necessary part of these games – the tutorial. Age of Mythology went better, but then, that’s newer. […]

677th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Xbox 360/Playstation 3/PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Rockstar North Publisher: Rockstar games The Grand Theft Auto series feels like it’s been a constant companion. There are ten of them on the list, we’ve been doing them every 100 nearish to the end and when it came up […]

676th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Westwood Studios Publisher: Virgin Interactive Entertainment While I originally focused on playing Command & Conquer, the Red Alert series never held quite as much of an appeal to me. Partially it’s because World War II settings don’t really interest me a lot […]

675th played so far Genre: Role-Playing/Puzzle Platform: PC Year of Release: 1995 Developer: Origin Systems Publisher: Electronic Arts I’m not sure quite where I stand with Bioforge. Graphically, and in vague theme, we have something that resembles an older version of System Shock, but it’s billed as an RPG/Puzzle/Adventure while the manual lists a bunch […]

671st played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Playstation 3/Xbox 360/PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Criterion Games Publisher: Electronic Arts I mostly remember Burnout 2 as a chaotic racer whose big selling point was a big crashing mode that felt especially exciting and plainly fun to play. The racing was supposed to be its focus […]

668th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Valve Corporation Publisher: Valve Corporation The Half-Life series is one of the big ones that revolutionised story telling in games and really pushed the FPS genre forward. We noticed this when playing the first game already and I know it’s been […]

667th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Massive Entertainment Publisher: Sierra Entertainment/Ubisoft See that number up there? Two thirds of the way through. Making progress y’all! It feels like a while since we last covered an RTS. We’ve had some games, like the amazing Star Control 3, that mixed […]

665th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Infinity Ward Publisher: Activision How have I not played Call of Duty yet? The series is now one of the biggest out there (although, with the likes of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, we couldn’t quite say that felt right) […]

656th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Playstation 2/Xbox/PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Supersonic Software Publisher: Empire Interactive Mashed is another racing game. Third person, at what looks like an over the shoulder perspective – something that seem rarer, most games that I can think of in the genre are either from inside the […]

654th played so far Genre: Strategy/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Legend Entertainment Publisher: Accolade There are a bunch of hybrid games, that combine two genres that don’t normally fit together, but manage it with their own spin. Prior to starting Star Control 3, I’d already seen parts of its predecessor […]
