979th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Saturn Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Camelot Software Planning Publisher: Sega It feels like I’ve been needing to get through a number of Saturn-only titles that never gained a port, so require quite a bit more effort on my part. I played Burning Rangers last week and I’m […]

977th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Saturn Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: Sega Less than fifty games left and the list still brings up some pretty unique concepts. I don’t think I’ve played another game here where you are a firefighter. Sure, SOS The Final Escape/Disaster Report had you deal with […]

947th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: PC Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Papyrus Design Group Publisher: Sierra Sports The focus on Grand Prix Legends feels different just reading the description. While other racing games tend to have you drive modern cars with focusing on that polished experience – Forza Motorsport feels like one of the […]

899th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Sega Saturn Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Entertainment Software Publishing/Sega I feel like I’ve been running into a lot of Treasure’s games lately. Silhouette Mirage was a recent action platformer, but with Radiant Silvergun we follow the trend of Sin and Punishment and Gradius […]

886th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco The Ridge Racer series naming convention really gets confusing – aside from there being a second Ridge Racer with the same name on the list, this seems like the fourth one – although I keep forgetting it’s part […]

838th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Arcade/Dreamcast Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Sega AM 2 Publisher: Sega I think today’s game has one of the longest titles on the list, as well as one that has some of the more random words thrown together – I don’t expect tangrams to feature at all in […]

828th played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Nintendo 64/Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1998 Developer: DMA Design Publisher: Take Two Interactive It feels like the Nintendo 64 era was the high point of the 3D action platformers – your Super Mario 64s and Banjo Kazooies. Sure, later platforms had them too, but they were so […]

827th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Zed Two Publisher: Ocean/Infogrames Time for our next Nintendo 64 title of the batch. Wetrix has always been an interesting entry on the list – as much a tech demo for water physics as it’s a puzzle game using them. It’s […]

#367 1080 Degrees Snowboarding

826th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo Sometimes, going into a game, you know it’s not going to be great. After SSX Tricky was an early highlight, an earlier snowboarding game on the older Nintendo 64 will never quite live up – with nostalgia […]

806th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: PC Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Stainless Games Publisher: Sales Curve Interactive/Interplay Entertainment Carmageddon is one of those games that felt like a transition to adulthood for me. While we weren’t allowed to play – the violence and indulge in dark humour were too much for our parents […]
