638th played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: PlayStation Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Square Publisher: Square Square was on a roll in the late 90s. We’ve seen their Final Fantasy output, still some of the golden age of the series, and we’ll discuss the flawed sequel, but better standalone Chrono Cross at some point too. […]

633rd played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: PC Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Gas Powered Games Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios I’ve been looking forward to playing Dungeon Siege for a while. I’ve tried the RPG before (having owned it for quite some time) but never got that far in – too many other good things […]

625th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1994 Developer: Square Publisher: Square This game was moved up in the queue because Peter wanted to play it for his Before I Kick blog. By the time this publishes, his write up hasn’t gone out yet – he’s a month or two ahead, […]

620th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: FromSoftware Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment/Atlus Software/Namco Bandai The Dark Souls series has its own particular reputation for difficulty and requiring learning by repetition. I’ll be honest, while I think I would enjoy parts of it, it also sounds like something I […]

605th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Game Boy Advance Year of Release: 2003 Developer: AlphaDream Publisher: Nintendo I’ve been holding off on covering the Mario & Luigi series for a hwile until we started running out of Mario series games a bit… I really love the Mario RPGs and these are the ones I […]

604th played so far Genre: Strategy/Role-Playing Platform: Neo Geo Pocket Color Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Sacnoth Publisher: SNK Faselei! is a game that I’ve spent a lot of time trying to find out more about, but one that’s quite tricky to do so. Released for the rather small Neo Geo Pocket Color, this strategy […]

588th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 3/Xbox 360/PC Year of Release: 2011 Developer: Bethesda Game Studios Publisher: Bethesda Softworks Looking back on the Elder Scrolls series, I think I preferred Morrowind over Oblivion. Sure, the latter is more modern, with better graphics, but it wasn’t quite as weird as Morrowind, while having to […]

583rd played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Level-5 Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment Although billed as an action RPG, the main thing that stands out about this game before really playing it is that it is supposed to have city building elements. Now, we recently got that in Fallout […]

575th played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: PC/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Runic Games Publisher: Runic Games I’m not quite sure why I’ve taken so long to try Torchlight – other than there being so many other games to play for the list. It’s a Diablo related game, heavily streamlined compared to the […]

572nd played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Square Publisher: Square It’s been a while since we covered the Final Fantasy series, isn’t it? Last time is a year and a half ago, for Final Fantasy X, a game I’ve finished since then, although before that it was back in […]
