962nd played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Various Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Sega AM3/Sumo Digital Publisher: Sega It feels like it’s only been weeks since I played Mario Power Tennis, the previous tennis (or tennis-inspired) game, even if it’s been over half a year. But as I approach the end of the entire list, […]

961st played so far Genre: Adventure/Fighting Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Team Ninja Publisher: Microsoft One of the stranger and more frustrating features of the list are the near-duplicate games. I feel I have only played a single Ninja Gaiden game, but did it twice because of the Ninja Gaiden Black upgrade […]

960th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Xbox 360/PC Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Bugbear Entertainment Publisher: Empire Interactive Racer 38. The only one of Bugbear Entertainment’s on the list, although we’ve seen Empire Interactive publish a couple of games so far in quite different genres. Beyond that, it’s a racing game, that’s about all […]

959th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Square Product Development Division 3 Publisher: Square Chrono Trigger was one of the biggest RPGs of the 16-bit era and probably rivals only Final Fantasy VI in its focus on JRPG character building and story telling, even outshining it as it […]

958th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade/Dreamcast/Gamecube Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Treasure I think I’m going to end up getting this wrong and come across it, but if I’m right this is the last Treasure game on the list. From their early start with Gunstar Heroes to their last […]

957th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Saturn Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: Sega I think I only know Nights into Dreams from ancillary materials, based on the main character of Nights appearing in other games and places. I’ve heard some of it described on a podcast once – although mostly the […]

956th played so far Genre: Action/Fighting Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Sora Ltd. Publisher: Nintendo I believe Super Smash Bros Ultimate, the currently latest in the series, hadn’t been released the last time I played a Super Smash Bros. game. I sunk a fair amount of time into that – not as much […]

955th played so far Genre: Action/First-Person Shooter Platform: PC/Xbox/Gamecube Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Raven Software Publisher: LucasArts So I still had two Star Wars games left to play, and it felt like it has been a while since I played with force powers, rather than flying ships around.¬†We’ve played Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark […]

954th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Pyro Studios Publisher: Eidos Interactive As I’ve mentioned a few times before, I’ve covered all the games for this blog that I’ve played in the past. That does, however, leave a game like today’s Commandos 2, where I played the original game […]

953th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Gamecube/Playstation 2/PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Awesome Developments Publisher: Ignition Entertainment I don’t really know much about pool. I’ve seen some snooker years ago in late night watches and possibly a sports program of sorts at the gym and it looked interesting, but I never really got […]
