854th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Sega AM 2 Publisher: Sega For today’s shoot ’em up, we get a flight simulator-like plane dog fighting game. Rather than the focus on accuracy of the former, getting the shooting in is more important – it looks like a […]

845th played so far Genre: Life Simulation Platform: Dreamcast Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Vivarium/Jellyvision Publisher: Sega It’s quite difficult to play Seaman these days. It was only released for the Dreamcast and needed a specific microphone that could plug into your controller and play. These are difficult to find, so you need to use […]

838th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Arcade/Dreamcast Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Sega AM 2 Publisher: Sega I think today’s game has one of the longest titles on the list, as well as one that has some of the more random words thrown together – I don’t expect tangrams to feature at all in […]

820th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Creative Assembly Publisher: Sega It’s been about 400 games – and so four years – since I last played a Total War game, in Rome: Total War, and about seven years since I played Medieval: Total War, the first game in this […]

818th played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1996 Developer: BlueSky Software Publisher: SEGA There really was a trend in the mid-nineties, before the advent of 3D-capable consoles, where using pre-rendered 3D graphics was the best way to make your game seem modern. We’ve seen it on the SNES with Donkey […]

815th played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: Dreamcast Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: Sega Following the disappearance of City of Heroes (even if it was found to have fan servers online this year), we set off to play as many of the online games as possible, especially MMORPGs that rely on it […]

783rd played so far Genre: Action Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Amusement Vision Publisher: Sega Anyone who knows us is probably not surprised that as I write this, we’re going through a fairly major monkey phase. There’s a monkey pillow, some small decorations and quite a few in joke references that I won’t […]

724th played so far Genre: Music Platform: Dreamcast Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: Sega The Dreamcast era really was one for weird peripherals. We saw this with Sega Bass Fishing (although I avoided it there by playing the PC version) and a few years later with the massive setup that came with […]

720th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Headstrong Games Publisher: Sega I’m jumping between installments of The House of the Dead to cover different options. For this one, I obtained a copy in an office move some time ago and in my quest of getting rid of oddly […]

#148 Shinobi

Tags: , , ,

691st played so far Genre: Action Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1987 Developer: Sega Publisher: Sega I really should have played Shinobi earlier for the most mundane reason: There are two games on the list with the exact same name, just separated by a decade or so. This isn’t uncommon in franchises, as the recent […]
