746th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Various Year of Release: 2009 Developer: EA Tiburon Publisher: Electronic Arts I’ve mentioned my general discomfort with sports games before, as a genre that I don’t get much out of. I can understand why they’re popular and why people would enjoy them, but I often find them awkward […]

716th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1984 Developer: Konami Publisher: Konami We’ve been playing a bunch of games based on sports games before, mostly from these earlier eras – Summer Games II comes to mind – but the collection of minigames with a sports theme lasts in the modern day […]

669th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Various Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Visual Concepts Publisher: 2K Sports I’ll be honest, I feel like a lot of these sports games are ones I have to cover – the yearly entry of the time was put on the list as the best representative of football, hockey, […]

666th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Various Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Neversoft Publisher: Activision We’ve played a Tony Hawk game before, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2. That was fine, a skating game in preset arenas that felt mismatched – not that natural and, even though you’d always want to create a setting with […]

641st played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Playstation Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Konami Publisher: Konami I’ve played Track & Field some time ago – a minigame collection based on various athletics challenges, set up for arcade play and the inspiration for Olympics games, Mario and Sonic or otherwise, for a long time to come.

637th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: EA Canada Publisher: Electronic Arts So following the Legend of Zelda games I played earlier this week, it felt time to do something more active. In this case, as I really should play both a Wii game and a sports game, some […]

582nd played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Various Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Midway Publisher: Midway My knowledge of basketball is probably summed up best by saying that the podcast Pistol Shrimps Radio actually teaches me things about the game, and that the most exposure I’ve had to it was through the Michael Jordan classic […]

552th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Playstation Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Konami Publisher: Konami ISS Pro Evolution is another football game. See FIFA 10 or Pro Evolution Soccer or Sensible World of Soccer – in fact, this is a predecessor of the second in that list. Being from 1999, it feels like it’ll […]

543rd played so far Genre: Sports Platform: NES Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Tecmo Publisher: Tecmo Time for another sports game I don’t know much about! I’ll be watching the Superbowl at some point, but until then most of my knowledge of American football comes from the theory of how it’s meant to work, bits […]

528th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Tokyo Shoseki Publisher: Nintendo It feels like there are a fair amount of tennis games on the list. I suppose it’s the standard approach – Pong started it, and even afterwards it’s a pretty simple formula to start with as a sports […]
