784th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Playstation 2/Gamecube/Xbox Year of Release: 2003 Developer: EA Canada Publisher: EA Sports BIG I’ve not only played the main NBA series before, but NBA Jam introduced me to something closer to the street basketball we are going to get into here and I swear it’s come up 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 […]

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 […]

769th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Spike Publisher: Spike/Agetec/505 Games I don’t get wrestling. I’m not even talking about fakeness or performances, I don’t really get the appeal of watching people fight. I think I struggled with that in the previous WWE game we discussed. Fire Pro […]

756th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco/Electronic Arts I remember really getting into Katamari Damacy, with dodgy controls, but a decent concept that appealed enough to me. In fact, I keep looking out for news of rereleases for it as that might solve those problems. […]

713th played so far Genre: Music Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Koei/iNis Publisher: Koei/THQ Gitaroo Man is a rhythm game that, from its cover, I always peg as a bit of a RPG game. What the cover doesn’t look like is how the game seems to be pegged – one where you […]

702nd played so far Genre: Music Platform: Playstation 2/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Harmonix Publisher: Activision Man, it’s been a while since we got our plastic instruments out – possibly as far back as the original Guitar Hero as game 184 – and while we’ve had other peripherals for individual games, the setup […]

698th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Playstation 2/Xbox/PC Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Rockstar North Publisher: Rockstar Games With Manhunt, we play one of the more controversial games out there – at least at its time of release. It’s a protagonist playing in a big game of murder and death, something you do in […]

693rd played so far Genre: Role-Playing/Life Simulation Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Atlus Publisher: Atlus/Square Enix I really enjoyed Persona 3 when I played it some time ago, more than I thought I would, with the life simulation aspects really appealing to me. I’d been holding off for a bit, but the […]
