774th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Various Year of Release: 1985 Developer: Interplay Productions Publisher: Electronic Arts I only rarely play the old RPGs, even though I enjoy digging into that history sometimes. I’ve played Eye of the Beholder and Ultima VII fairly recently and Bard’s Tale fits the dungeon crawler mode of the […]

771st played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: PC Year of Release: 1992 Developer: Origin Systems Publisher: Origin Systems The Ultima series of games rather intimidates me. The first game in the series was still fairly primitive, while as an MMO Ultima Online is more of an outlier than you’d expect from the genre. However, that […]

764th played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Square Enix/Jupiter Publisher: Square Enix Square Enix always seems to try to create new RPGs, playing around with the set formulas to see what new things they can create. This happens both in the changes to the Final Fantasy series as […]

750th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Squaresoft Publisher: Square/Sony Computer Entertainment Happy new year! And happy 750th game landmark! It’s pure coincidence the two coincided, but I quite like that both happen at the same time. My search for a big game to play coincided with my quest […]

742nd played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: PC Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Facepunch Studios Publisher: Valve Corporation Garry’s Mod, taken on its own, isn’t strictly a game. It’s a physics sandbox to either mess around in (which you could call a game, but without goals) or to play the maps, game modes and props […]

723rd played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Vanillaware Publisher: Marvellous Games/Ignition Entertainment/Rising Star Games For some games, the title is enough to get you excited. Muramasa: The Demon Blade? Yeah, there should be something awesome in there, right? An action RPG that plays a bit like a platformer feels […]

719th played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: PC Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Blizzard North Publisher: Blizzard Entertainment Three years after Diablo, we decided to play its sequel – mostly to help Before I Kick (write up for this game coming a few months late there),but I guess having a gap similar to the original […]

709th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: PC Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Westwood Associates Publisher: Strategic Simulations Inc. I haven’t played too many D&D games for the list recently. Games like Baldur’s Gate defined my taste in games, but after we covered some of them, I’ve left Eye of the Beholder until later. I […]

707th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: NES Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Chunsoft Publisher: Enix/Nintendo The Dragon Quest series (known as Dragon Warrior in its early English installments, but we’ll go by the proper name here) has three entries on the list – none of which I have played so far. In fact, I […]

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 […]
