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 […]

690th played so far Genre: Action Platform:Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Irem Publisher: Irem/Agetec As I’m writing this, it’s actually the first weekend of the new year and we watched the Disaster Artist yesterday – making for two names I keep mixing up – and put the Christmas decorations away.

656th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Playstation 2/Xbox/PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Supersonic Software Publisher: Empire Interactive Mashed is another racing game. Third person, at what looks like an over the shoulder perspective – something that seem rarer, most games that I can think of in the genre are either from inside the […]

642nd played so far Genre: Pinball Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Sony Computer Entertainment Publisher: Ubisoft There are three pinball games on the list. We played the first chronologically – Pinball Dreams – five years ago and as we approach two thirds of the entire list, we are playing the second nearly […]

612th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC/Xbox/Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Gray Matter Interactive Publisher: Activision Wolfenstein 3D is certainly a notable game. It was amazing to see 3D done at the time, as a first person shooter. Horribly dated now, of course, but the technology was amazing at the time. […]

597th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Rockstar Leeds Publisher: Rockstar Games As there are 10 GTA series games on the list of 1001, we tend to play one every 100 games – and as, per tradition, the first games in the series were played at the 100 […]
