549th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Xbox/Playstation 2/PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Midway Games Publisher: Midway Games Psi-Ops: Mindgate Conspiracy isn’t the first game that combines an FPS with psychic powers – a few years ago we played Second Sight, which played with the same basic idea. It’s probably not a coincidence they […]

542nd played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Mythos Games Publisher: Microprose We played the first X-Com game a few years ago, and I remember it as being outdated – no in game tutorial or handholding, just putting you in there and wishing you good luck. The second game isn’t […]

527th played so far Genre: Life Simulation/Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Lionhead Studios Publisher: Electronic Arts Black & White isn’t a game we’re going into blindly. We’ve both played – I don’t think I ever finished it, but I always enjoyed playing the game a lot. Black & White is a god […]

518th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: PC/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Klei Entertainment For some reason I keep thinking of this game as something more actionny – maybe something more Angry Birds-like, or Tetris-style catch/move items that are falling. It isn’t though, and on some level I know that – the game […]

515th played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: PC/Saturn/PlayStation 1 Year of Release: 1995 Developer: Activision Publisher: Activision MechWarrior 2 is a game I’ve been eyeing up for quite some time – I owned it even though I didn’t necessarily get around to playing it. It’s not quite my typical game, but I remember the fun […]

514th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up/Fighting Platform: PC/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: ACE Team Publisher: ACE Team/Atlus I’m not quite sure where to put Zeno Clash in the list of games for me. The concept looks interesting, but at the same time a first person brawler isn’t normally my thing. The […]

513th played so far Genre: Interactive Fiction Platform: PC Year of Release: 2012 Developer: Blendo Games Described as a first-person adventure game, I didn’t really know what to expect from Thirty Flights of Loving before I started. It’s the story of a heist, but the main thing that stood out from what I’d seen is […]

510th played so far Genre: Action Platform: PC/Playstation 2/X-Box Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Rockstar North Publisher: Rockstar Games It’s always nice to reach a Grand Theft Auto game, as it has always had a good core gameplay while the 3D games have slowly been hammering out some control issues – Grand Theft Auto Vice […]

506th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Ensemble Studios Publisher: Microsoft Have we not played this game yet? (Almost, we played Age of Mythology a year ago.) Age of Empires is, and feels like, one of those important strategy series that everyone played for a while, although I believe […]

502nd played so far Genre: Management Simulation Platform: PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Frontier Developments Publisher: Atari We love our management simulations. There’s something simply enjoyable about games without violence or rapid action, just trying to keep things running, improving and expanding where you can. We also still enjoy our theme parks (when we […]
