697th played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: Various Year of Release: 1984 Developer: First Star Software Publisher: Beyond Software/Tynesoft/Wicked Software/Kemco I remember playing Spy vs Spy with friends about… 20 years ago maybe? Probably a few more than that, but probably about a decade after its first release. I only remember bits of it, but […]

692nd played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 2012 Developer: Telltale Games Publisher: Telltale Games On other blog, I have written about reading the Walking Dead comic and watching the same TV series. The game is the third medium the series has done well in. Telltale Games first became known for their […]

687th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Various Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Codemasters Publisher: Codemasters I’ve been enjoying racing games in the past – while loads get frustrating and I always feel unlikely to pick them up myself, I enjoy playing them as long as they go okay. Colin McRae: Dirt was an example […]

686th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Various Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Ubi Soft Publisher: Ubi Soft Tom Clancy games have, in the past, left me with a bad taste in my mouth. Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter showed earlier that its politics feel quite objectionable. That’s probably because the past few years have left […]

678th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Ubisoft Publisher: Ubisoft Beyond Good & Evil often gets advertised with the two protagonists of the game – a young woman and a pig man. As in a pig’s head and such. That latter part always looked interesting and made me curious […]

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 […]

662nd played so far Genre: Action Platform: Various Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Electric Dreams Software Publisher: Electric Dreams Software/Activision Spindizzy looks interesting. It uses the isometric perspective that’s quite popular in these days, but doesn’t use the human characters moving around and mostly looks like a version of Marble Madness. It’s not exactly that […]

648th played so far Genre: Maze Platform: Various Year of Release: 1984 Developer: First Star Software Publisher: First Star Software It might be that I’ve been focusing on a few other 1001 more lately, but that cover really reminds me of comic magazines. It’s an interesting impression – not quite what I was expecting. So […]

644th played so far Genre: Strategy/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Various Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Ubisoft Paris/Red Storm Entertainment Publisher: Ubisoft The meaning of ‘strategy’ is, as so many genres, quite broad. While we’d normally think of an RTS like Command & Conquer or the Civilization series, for Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 it refers […]
