573nd played so far Genre: Survival Horror/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Valve Corporation Publisher: Valve Corporation We’ve played Left 4 Dead a few years ago.

570th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1983 Developer: Dave Theurer Publisher: Atari Isaac Asimov is an amazing speculative fiction writer (I know that sounds pretentious, but it works best to describe his work).

555th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Williams Publisher: Williams Smash TV is a shoot ’em up descended from the likes of Robotron 2084.

530th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Amiga Year of Release: 1994 Developer: Bits Productions To be honest, Gravity Power seems to be a Lunar Lander ‘inspired’ game. Not too inspiring to be honest, although we’ll see. Oddly enough, this was an upgraded version of an earlier released game, initially released with a […]

517th played so far Genre: Adventure/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Naughty Dog Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment I don’t know why I haven’t played Uncharted before.
