926th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC/Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Volition Publisher: THQ I’ve really enjoyed the Saints Row series stylings, both the aggressive glee of the second games and the over the top feeling of its sequels even after it descends into hell, and weirdly Red Faction […]

922nd played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1987 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco/Atari Games We’ve had a lot of games in the Space Invaders mold already, including the original Galaga which updated the basic game by adding in swooping in, changing formations.

921st played so far Genre: Stealth Platform: Various Year of Release: 2006 Developer: IO Interactive Publisher: Eidos Interactive I have had a difficult time with Hitman 2: Silent Assassin.

918th played so far Genre: Simulation Platform: PC Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Ubisoft Bucharest Publisher: Ubisoft One of the weirder games we had for our old, 2 5.25″ floppy drive only PCs was called GATO. It was a real time submarine simulator that took me years to figure out – helped by having to […]

917th played so far Genre: Life Simulation/Role-Playing Platform: Game Boy Advance Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Marvelous Interactive Publisher: Marvelous Interactive/Natsume I’ll be honest, the main reason Harvest Moon appears to be known now is that it’s the game Stardew Valley is based on – a decent enough recommendation, but not necessarily noteworthy enough to […]
