791st played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Nintendo EAD Tokyo Publisher: Nintendo Donkey Konga gave the world a Donkey Kong-themed music game using a custom bongo controller. Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat took those same controllers, but turned it into a platformer. An actual platformer, not a rhythm game skinned […]

785th played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Various Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Ubisoft Montreal Publisher: Ubisoft The original Prince of Persia was a stand out platformer, its animation standing out but the full game having a story and set up that was quite appealing. It’s a game where straight up sequels could never quite […]

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 […]

759th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Rare Publisher: Nintendo Rare Replay time! We got the collection some time ago and two final games in it had been laying dormant for a while, so now it’s time to get through it – ticking them both off around the […]

743rd played so far Genre: Platform Platform: ZX Spectrum Year of Release: 1984 Developer: Software Projects Publisher: Software Projects/Tynesoft Some games are on this list because of their legacy and place in history, rather than being the best out there – if you grew up with it, you probably consider it great, but it’s not […]

739th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Nintendo EAD Tokyo Publisher: Nintendo One of the struggles going through this list is to pace playing certain franchises so we don’t play them too soon, and the Mario series is a clear example of that – we playing the important Super […]

725th played so far Genre: Platform/Puzzle Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: WayForward Technologies Publisher: WayForward Technologies Happily, unlike other digital platforms, DSi games are still very accessible for all players. One of those that’s been waiting on my 3DS for years has been Mightly Flip Champs. It’s one of those games that […]

717th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: PC/Xbox 360/Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Grin Publisher: Capcom For some games on this list, we are playing the remake rather than the original. Bionic Commando seems to have been a rather beloved NES game with some impressive time attacks. I doubt the latter factored into […]

711th played so far Genre: Platform/Puzzle Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: WayForward Technologies Publisher: Majesco Entertainment I’ve seen A Boy and His Blob before, as a NES time attack video. I got the basic idea, feeding this blob jellybeans that made it transform, but the full gameplay always stayed vague. I knew I […]

699th played so far Genre: Adventure/Platform Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Skip Ltd. Publisher: Nintendo So there are a few action/adventure-like games left that feature you playing as a robot – aside from this, we’ve yet to play Rocket: Robot on Wheels, and I believe Space Station Silicon Valley is another. It means […]
