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 […]

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 […]

1003rd played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: PC Year of Release: 1995 Developer: LucasArts Publisher: LucasArts While I missed out playing some minor titles – Labyrinth and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade – I have played all the really known Lucasarts adventure games once I’ve played today’s game. I haven’t quite finished all of […]

1002nd played so far Genre: Pinball Platform: Various Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Farsight Studios Publisher: Crave Entertainment/Play It Unlike my edutainment games, I got my pinball games spread out quite well, with Pinball Dreams coming in fairly early and Flipnic fitting pretty neatly between that game and today. I’m pretty sure it’s also the […]

1001th played so far Genre: Interactive Fiction Platform: Various Year of Release: 1984 Developer: Infocom Publisher: Infocom So this is weird. If there had not been a second edition of the book, I would be done now – instead I’m going into overtime. I’m playing the final double digit game – it was the last […]

1000th played so far Genre: Maze Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Namco Bandai Games Publisher: Namco Bandai Games We’ve reached quadruple digits! We’re in a great group of landmarks for the list now, where this and the next one will feel monumental but we’ve got another twenty to go after that. To […]

999th played so far Genre: Action/Edutainment Platform: Arcade/Dreamcast/PC Year of Release: 1999 Developer: WOW Entertainment/Smilebit Publisher: Sega The Typing of the Dead was the first game I reserved as a final game without being able to go back on it. We played The Logical Journey of the Zoombinis really early on, then reserved Oregon Trail […]
