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.

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 […]
