784th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Playstation 2/Gamecube/Xbox Year of Release: 2003 Developer: EA Canada Publisher: EA Sports BIG I’ve not only played the main NBA series before, but NBA Jam introduced me to something closer to the street basketball we are going to get into here and I swear it’s come up as […]

777th played so far Genre: Survival Horror Platform: PC/Xbox/Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo Publisher: Konami I was incredibly impressed by the first Silent Hill game. It had its control issues and its age showed, but the setting was good and tense and the puzzles worked quite well. We’ve also […]

770th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Xbox/PC/Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Double Fine Productions Publisher: Majesco Entertainment I’ve been creating a bit of my buffer for these write ups, which has the handy side effects that I can use Christmas to play some longer games, rather than using it to catch up […]

754th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Xbox Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Team Ninja Publisher: Tecmo The video games list has a sad group of repeat entries, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes being the most quoted remake on the list.

698th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Playstation 2/Xbox/PC Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Rockstar North Publisher: Rockstar Games With Manhunt, we play one of the more controversial games out there – at least at its time of release.

656th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Playstation 2/Xbox/PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Supersonic Software Publisher: Empire Interactive Mashed is another racing game.

It’s a pretty minor milestone, with the two thirds check that’s coming up being more significant, but I’m always excited with a new 50 and the way I get to update my stats and […]

647th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Xbox Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Oddworld Inhabitants Publisher: Electronic Arts We played Oddworld games before, as a story based platformer that was about these characters gaining freedom. Here, a few games later in the series, we get a 3D action adventure instead, quite a different challenge. I’m […]

612th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC/Xbox/Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Gray Matter Interactive Publisher: Activision Wolfenstein 3D is certainly a notable game. It was amazing to see 3D done at the time, as a first person shooter. Horribly dated now, of course, but the technology was amazing at the time. […]
