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).

742nd played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: PC Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Facepunch Studios Publisher: Valve Corporation Garry’s Mod, taken on its own, isn’t strictly a game.
