1013th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo When looking at the remaining sports game, I ended up looking at the various minigame collections as they suited me most. With that, it made sense to me to finish on the Wii sequel, as it feels like […]

1012th played so far Genre: Management Simulation Platform: PC Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Maxis Publisher: EA Games I have held off on playing SimCity 4 for this moment. As discussed in SimCity and SimCity 2000, I enjoy the genre even if the series has been overtaken by Cities Skylines in the genre of making […]

1011th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Hudson Soft/Blue Planet Software Publisher: Hudson Soft/Tetris Online Inc/Nintendo I don’t think it’s controversial to say that Tetris is one of the most successful games of all time. It’s the second-best selling video game franchise of all time – and that comes […]

1010th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Playstation 1/PC Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Reflections Interactive Publisher: GT Interactive Software Sometimes I picked these final games based on them being a well known series or being important in another right. Sometimes, though, it’s just the game that’s left over, and in this case one where […]

#875 Street Fighter IV

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. And while there are many big names in the genre, I think it’s indisputable that Mario is the king of the genre. While the original Super […]

1007th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Various Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Slightly Mad Studios Publisher: Electronic Arts The Need for Speed series is one that has been around for a long time now, with (from memory) its 1994 release with its 3D cards impressing us back in the day. It’s been a mainstay […]

1006th played so far Genre: Simulation Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo I’ve skipped really dealing with these sorts of ‘pet simulations’, with Eyepet being the other main item on the list (that isn’t a life simulation where you’re influencing humans). Where Eyepet was just as impressive because of […]

#716 Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops

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. Obviously Metal Gear Solid V wasn’t out when the list was made. It seems to have been, in part, […]

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 […]
