802nd played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: AlphaDream Publisher: Nintendo I’ve started playing Bowser’s Inside Story about ten years ago, shortly after its release, but didn’t get too far – too many other games and this list distracted me far enough.

799th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco Racing and driving games are interesting entries on the list.

797th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Treasure/Nintendo SPD Publisher: Nintendo It hasn’t been that long since I played Sin & Punishment, a rail shooter with quite a bit of movement that became quite chaotic and difficult to keep up with. It took nearly a decade for […]

796th played so far Genre: Survival Horror/Stealth Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Project Siren Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment Siren Blood Curse has been living on our PS3’s hard drive as quite a chunky download for some time now. Its episodic release means that there are a lot of individual parts that, together, […]
