1009th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Various Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Dimps/Capcom Publisher: Capcom It feels right to finish the list of fighting games with a Street Fighter game. Not because I would say it’s my preferred series (in the end Smash Bros connects more with me) but because it really popularized the […]

1008th played so far Genre:¬†Platform Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2010 Developer: Nintendo EAD Tokyo Publisher: Nintendo There are, of course, a lot of platform games on the list.

1005th played so far Genre: Stealth/Action Platform: PSP Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Kojima Productions Publisher: Konami I don’t think there’s a better series to look at for stealth gaming than the Metal Gear Solid series.

1004th played so far Genre: Flight Simulator Platform: Various Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Gaijin Entertainment Publisher: 505 Games/Gaijin Entertainment Unlike other genres, there was no planning around the final flight simulator. IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey is a sequel to IL-2 Sturmovik, which I played ‘only’ four years ago, which helped contain it, but […]
