801st played so far Genre: Interactive Fiction Platform: Various Year of Release: 1985 Developer: Infocom Publisher: Infocom To kick off the next fifty and hundred, we go to an Infocom adventure.

800th played so far Genre: Adventure/Puzzle Platform: Various Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Cyan Publisher: Broderbund Game 800!

798th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Various Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Tecmo Publisher: Tecmo We have been getting two things out of our Switch Online subscription. One is that we’ve gained quite an addiction to Tetris-99, at which Peter has become a master, and the other is that we’ve gotten access to the […]

785th played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Various Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Ubisoft Montreal Publisher: Ubisoft The original Prince of Persia was a stand out platformer, its animation standing out but the full game having a story and set up that was quite appealing. It’s a game where straight up sequels could never quite […]

774th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Various Year of Release: 1985 Developer: Interplay Productions Publisher: Electronic Arts I only rarely play the old RPGs, even though I enjoy digging into that history sometimes.

767th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Various Year of Release: 2012 Developer: Firaxis Games Publisher: 2K Games I’ve played the original X-Com series for the blog, including the city focused sequel, and while I still loved the basic formula, I struggled with the interface and difficulty of the original. A few years into this […]

765th played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 1985 Developer: ICOM Simulations Inc Publisher: Mindscape/Kemco As time went on, the adventure has continued to evolve – and while interactive fiction was the medium of story telling, it’s just not as attractive as graphics bring in. For that reason, games started introducing some […]

763rd played so far Genre: Music Platform: Various Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Harmonix Publisher: MTV Games Every once in a while I have to bring out the plastic instruments and play one of these music games. I want to spread them out (if only to keep my notes and write up clear) but there’s […]

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 […]

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.
