787th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up/Strategy Platform: PC/Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Codemasters Publisher: Codemasters I’m starting to feel more apathetic towards these military shooters. They’re big and popular, but while some Call of Duty games can sort of manage to draw me in, the first iteration of Operation Flashpoint […]

780th played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: PC Year of Release: 1995 Developer: LucasArts Publisher: LucasArts I’m still excited to see all these LucasArts games. I’ve played a bunch of them once, but never got Full Throttle. When I was younger, I think the theming put me off a bit, but it’s been cited as […]

777th played so far Genre: Survival Horror Platform: PC/Xbox/Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo Publisher: Konami I was incredibly impressed by the first Silent Hill game. It had its control issues and its age showed, but the setting was good and tense and the puzzles worked quite well. We’ve also […]

773rd played so far Genre: Life Simulation/Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Maxis Publisher: Electronic Arts It sounds like a Molyneux-like pitch, a game where you start off as a bacteria-like organism, evolve and grow a civilization until you reach space. It was, however, proposed by the other sim genre great, Will Wright […]

771st played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: PC Year of Release: 1992 Developer: Origin Systems Publisher: Origin Systems The Ultima series of games rather intimidates me. The first game in the series was still fairly primitive, while as an MMO Ultima Online is more of an outlier than you’d expect from the genre. However, that […]

770th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Xbox/PC/Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Double Fine Productions Publisher: Majesco Entertainment I’ve been creating a bit of my buffer for these write ups, which has the handy side effects that I can use Christmas to play some longer games, rather than using it to catch up […]

768th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: PC/Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Rockstar North Publisher: Rockstar Games I’m playing this set of one hundred’s GTA game nice and early. The final few don’t have quite as much staying power – The Lost and Damned, today’s entry, is an expansion pack sequel for […]

753rd played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC/XBox Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Starbreeze Studios/Tigon Studios Publisher: Vivendi Universal Games Although tie in games are usually seen as bad, we have seen some good ones – Goldeneye is the one that everyone loves, while Star Wars arguably has some games that are better than […]

752nd played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Factor 5/LucasArts Publisher: LucasArts I had yet to kick off two Star Wars game series. Star Wars: TIE Fighter was still in the previous fifty and it focused on space combat, becoming incredibly accessible compared to other games in the […]

749th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Bohemia Interactive Studio Publisher: Codemasters According to the book, this is the first soldier FPS – focused on the reality of participating in war rather than the shooter fantasies of, say, Quake (to use a not quite contemporary). More realistic […]
