912th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo Thanks to the Book of Mudora podcast, I’ve been steeped in Legend of Zelda lore recentlyย  – something that seems way deeper than the games justify, but it’s fun anyway. I’ve been waiting some of these out […]

911th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Light Weight Publisher: Square/Sony Computer Entertainment I’ve not heard of Bushido Blade before the blog, and I don’t think I will after – there was a sequel, but it does look like it didn’t go anywhere. It feels like it fits […]

910th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Bungie Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios It feels weirdly apt to cover an older Halo game now, as the anniversary edition has been recently released as I type this.

908th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Various Year of Release: 1988 Developer: Realtime Games Publisher: Rainbird I’ve been in control of planes and cars for this lists, very immersive mechs and various different spaceships.

907th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Konami Publisher: Konami I think The Legend of the Mystical Ninja is another game that I’ve only heard of because of the list.
