858th played so far Genre: Racing/Puzzle Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Firebrand Games/Atlus Publisher: Focus Home Interactive/Atlus I had an amazingly good time a while ago with Trackmania: United Forever for the PC.

857th played so far Genre: Strategy/Role-Playing Platform: PC Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Relic Entertainment Publisher: THQ The first Dawn of War game hit a strategy spot, focusing on smaller squads that are easier to follow and keep track of. The world was as engaging as I’d expect and while base building was a thing, […]
