141st played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Game Boy Advance Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Intelligent Systems Publisher: Nintendo Whilst we have been playing some handheld games recently (like Edge and LocoRoco 2) this is a group of platforms that we tend to neclect in favour of the PC or home consoles. This was noticed […]

140th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Sega Some of the games we play are ones that we’re playing because they’re on the list, not for any affinity or initial interest. I’ll be honest – Gunstar Heroes started off as one of those. It’s […]

137th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: iPhone Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Mobigame Publisher: Mobigame The games featured on this list are not without some element of controversy. Reviewers of the actual list are not too happy that 10% of the list are dedicated to 2009-2010 and there is always the question of what […]

136th played so far Genre: Stealth/Action Platform: PlayStation 3 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Kojima Productions Publisher: Konami The Metal Gear Solid series has never been a favourite of ours, whether it’s the first, second or third game, or a rather disappointing remake. There’s been a few that were better than others, with an increase […]

135th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Various Year of Release: 1985 Developer: Epyx Inc. Publisher: Epyx Inc. Epyx’s Games series – aside from this game, at some point in the future we’ll also cover World Games and California Games – is not the first collection of minigames (even in our book Tron comes first), […]
