623th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1992 Developer: Sega Publisher: Sega We see a lot of experiments with 3D in the early nineties and I vaguely remember the Virtua series being at the forefront of it. Aside from the Virtua Racing series, there were the Virtua Fighter games we discussed […]

603rd played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Saturn Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Sega The genre of fighting games is pretty broad as used here, and has a tendency to overlap with the action genre. Here it isn’t the one-on-one fighting you might get from, say, Street Fighter, but it’s closer to the […]

598th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Sega AM 2 Publisher: Sega Some time ago we played Sega Rally Championship, as an arcade machine while we wer visiting Euro Disney. This game is two years younger, again as an arcade cabinet, and so we basically go back even further […]

594th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: NES Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Rare Publisher: Nintendo/Sega For some reason, I kept confusing this game with Marble Madness for a long time. It doesn’t make any sense, none of it really matches, but the isometric perspective is similar and I haven’t looked much beyond screenshots. I’ll […]

592nd played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Sega AM 2 Publisher: Sega Next, we have an older driving game. Out Run sets you off on a trip around a summery city area. You go on a drive and go fast. Why does that sound familiar? Maybe thanks to OutRun […]

585th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Sega Publisher: Sega I’ll be honest, based on the cover and title I figured this would be another RPG. It’s not – this is a strategy game in the style of Fire Emblem and the like, but set in a fictional […]

546th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1989 Developer: Westone Publisher: Sega The late 80s and early 90s were filled with platformers, which is probably the reason why it still seems like main mode of gaming. Even early 3D consoles focused on it, combining it with 3D graphics to create […]

534th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Sega Publisher: Sega Going into this, I have seen Yakuza 2 listed as an open world action game – an eastern Grand Theft Auto, like Sleeping Dogs. Perhaps with less of an open world, but a similar mission structure and world […]

523rd played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1988 Developer: Sega Publisher: Sega I’m not sure why we’re playing Power Drift today. It was time we played another driving game and this looked fun enough. Sometimes that’s all we’ve got – got to get to it at some point. Our Thoughts Power […]

505th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1992 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: SEGA We’ve covered a few Sonic games before, including the original Sonic the Hedgehog. This is the first time, however, that we’re doing so on the Mega Drive, or even the original console for those games (thanks to […]
