731st played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Various Year of Release: 2005 Developer: EA Canada Publisher: Electronic Arts I’ve always distantly admired the Need for Speed series.

730th played so far Genre: Management Simulation Platform: Various Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Maxis Publisher: Maxis I’ve been playing a fair amount of Cities: Skylines recently, the spiritual successor to the, by now semi-defunct, SimCity series. It’s one of those series I love playing and I’ve been holding off on playing them so I […]

715th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Various Year of Release: 2002 Developer: IO Interactive Publisher: Eidos I guess I’m trying to start the franchises that have multiple items on the list, where I haven’t started them yet. It’s not been something I’ve been actively seeking out, but when I am reminded of one, I […]

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?

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.

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 […]
