677th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Xbox 360/Playstation 3/PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Rockstar North Publisher: Rockstar games The Grand Theft Auto series feels like it’s been a constant companion. There are ten of them on the list, we’ve been doing them every 100 nearish to the end and when it came up […]

671st played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Playstation 3/Xbox 360/PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Criterion Games Publisher: Electronic Arts I mostly remember Burnout 2 as a chaotic racer whose big selling point was a big crashing mode that felt especially exciting and plainly fun to play. The racing was supposed to be its focus […]

658th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade/Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Sega AM2 Publisher: Sega The Virtua Fighter series, as we saw with the first game, is a series that, for me, still feels like it introduced 3D fighting and created far more open arenas. Quite some time on, we’re now […]

614th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Hidden Path Entertainment Publisher: Hidden Path Entertainment/Microsoft Studios Although there are plenty of tower defense games out there these days, we don’t see many on the list. We’ve had Pixeljunk Monsters and one of the first, Desktop Tower Defense, but they […]

613th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Xbox 360/PSP/DS Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Metanet Software/Slick Entertainment/Silverbirch Studios Publisher: Metanet Software/Atari Inc Did you know that N+ is utterly ungoogleable? I don’t think I need to explain why, but it’s frustrating when I want to write these small bits. N+ is a platformer, stylized, with […]

600th played so far Genre: Adventure/Fighting Platform: PC/Xbox 360/Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Rocksteady Studios Publisher: Eidos Interactive Although this was a big milestone game that I normally look forward to, it took me a while to actually get to it – the past few months (as of the time of writing) have […]

589th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Human Head Studios Publisher: 2K Games Ignore the category above – this is an FPS that just wasn’t categorised by the book as one, while we didn’t pick up on it earlier. Now the stats drive us forward, and […]

588th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 3/Xbox 360/PC Year of Release: 2011 Developer: Bethesda Game Studios Publisher: Bethesda Softworks Looking back on the Elder Scrolls series, I think I preferred Morrowind over Oblivion. Sure, the latter is more modern, with better graphics, but it wasn’t quite as weird as Morrowind, while having to […]

580th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Rare Publisher: Microsoft Moving around the canon of Banjo-Kazooie a bit, for various reasons, Nuts and Bolts feels like a late entry for a 3D platforming hero – the genre seemed to be forgotten about around this point. This game draws […]

575th played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: PC/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Runic Games Publisher: Runic Games I’m not quite sure why I’ve taken so long to try Torchlight – other than there being so many other games to play for the list. It’s a Diablo related game, heavily streamlined compared to the […]
