814th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1992 Developer: NCS Corp Publisher: Konami As I don’t have much of an interest in shooters, I have a bunch of series that I clearly messed out on. Assault Suits, which this is a part of (Cybernator being the international title) is […]

810th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco Do I need to say it? There are some games that I know are on the list for their impact or because they stand out in the genre, but where I know it doesn’t appeal. Rolling Thunder […]

807th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Shiny Entertainment Publisher: Shiny Entertainment/Playmates Interactive I’ve sort of played MDK before – it wasn’t loads, and mostly dropping into other people’s games rather than playing a full campaign on my own. The sequel stands out as being an early […]

797th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Treasure/Nintendo SPD Publisher: Nintendo It hasn’t been that long since I played Sin & Punishment, a rail shooter with quite a bit of movement that became quite chaotic and difficult to keep up with. It took nearly a decade for […]

795th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Factor 5/LucasArts Publisher: LucasArts We’ve got a pretty rapid follow up to Star Wars: Rogue Squadron.

794th played so far Genre: Action/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Q Entertainment Publisher: Q Entertainment Man, the name of this game is incredibly annoying. Here in the UK, E4 comes out as a TV channel that I don’t pay too much attention too, and the expanded name – for […]

787th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up/Strategy Platform: PC/Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Codemasters Publisher: Codemasters I’m starting to feel more apathetic towards these military shooters. They’re big and popular, but while some Call of Duty games can sort of manage to draw me in, the first iteration of Operation Flashpoint […]

772nd played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1987 Developer: Taito Publisher: Taito Sometimes, you realise you just have to play these light gun games, and at that point you realise you’ve got to compromise. I’m about to tackle Operation Wolf, which is one of those, and so I’ll be […]

758th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up/Strategy Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Lobotomy Software/Snowblind Studios I remember playing a turn based tank shooter called Scorched Earth when I was younger, a game where you move tanks across a plan and shoot them with different weapons – the latter offering some strategy […]

752nd played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Factor 5/LucasArts Publisher: LucasArts I had yet to kick off two Star Wars game series. Star Wars: TIE Fighter was still in the previous fifty and it focused on space combat, becoming incredibly accessible compared to other games in the […]
