927th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Various Year of Release: 1995 Developer: Parallax Software Publisher: Interplay Productions Sorry, I guess there was another game waiting that I was familiar with – although I never ended up playing it myself, I had friends get into Descent before and watched it being played. I […]

869th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1995 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Sega Throughout this list, the run and gun shooters continue to put me off – Alien Soldier was the most recent at the bottom of the list (like┬áReturn Fire) and I keep not really seeing why I’d […]

780th played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: PC Year of Release: 1995 Developer: LucasArts Publisher: LucasArts I’m still excited to see all these LucasArts games.

675th played so far Genre: Role-Playing/Puzzle Platform: PC Year of Release: 1995 Developer: Origin Systems Publisher: Electronic Arts I’m not sure quite where I stand with Bioforge. Graphically, and in vague theme, we have something that resembles an older version of System Shock, but it’s billed as an RPG/Puzzle/Adventure while the manual lists a bunch […]

515th played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: PC/Saturn/PlayStation 1 Year of Release: 1995 Developer: Activision Publisher: Activision MechWarrior 2 is a game I’ve been eyeing up for quite some time – I owned it even though I didn’t necessarily get around to playing it. It’s not quite my typical game, but I remember the fun […]

398th played so farGenre: Racing Platform: Playstation/PC Year of Release: 1995 Developer: Psygnosis Publisher: Psygnosis Wipeout was one of the Playstation’s launch titles (the PC doesn’t ever matter in these discussions), a fast and slick racer that found its place through its association with the dance and house music culture that was big in the […]

Taking the gameplay found in Dune II, which turned out to be fun, Westwood continued to create another game like it, but now not using a licensed property. One of […]

388th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1995 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo We’ve been playing the Mario games out of order for a while, starting from Super Mario 64, but in terms of Mario chronology (as much as that exists) this is (pretty much without argument) the first. Rather than the […]
