958th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade/Dreamcast/Gamecube Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Treasure I think I’m going to end up getting this wrong and come across it, but if I’m right this is the last Treasure game on the list. From their early start with Gunstar Heroes to their last […]

954th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Pyro Studios Publisher: Eidos Interactive As I’ve mentioned a few times before, I’ve covered all the games for this blog that I’ve played in the past. That does, however, leave a game like today’s Commandos 2, where I played the original game […]

935th played so far Genre: Music Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Harmonix Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment I think I can safely say that I’ve explored Harmonix’ library in reverse – first the Rock Band franchise, then early Guitar Hero, recently¬†Amplitude and now it’s time for their very first game. I’ve seen how […]

867th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Dynamix Publisher: Sierra On-Line From the creators of The Incredible Machine comes… one of the early multiplayer online shooters. The mecha Starsiege games led to Tribes, which then had its large online component isolated for this sequel. I’ve heard of it […]

795th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Factor 5/LucasArts Publisher: LucasArts We’ve got a pretty rapid follow up to Star Wars: Rogue Squadron. It was a bit of a struggle that I didn’t really agree with as much. I preferred the older shooters – for various reasons […]

777th played so far Genre: Survival Horror Platform: PC/Xbox/Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo Publisher: Konami I was incredibly impressed by the first Silent Hill game. It had its control issues and its age showed, but the setting was good and tense and the puzzles worked quite well. We’ve also […]

749th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Bohemia Interactive Studio Publisher: Codemasters According to the book, this is the first soldier FPS – focused on the reality of participating in war rather than the shooter fantasies of, say, Quake (to use a not quite contemporary). More realistic […]

713th played so far Genre: Music Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Koei/iNis Publisher: Koei/THQ Gitaroo Man is a rhythm game that, from its cover, I always peg as a bit of a RPG game. What the cover doesn’t look like is how the game seems to be pegged – one where you […]

710th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Game Boy Advance Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Intelligent Systems Publisher: Nintendo The Mario Kart series is one that we have to cover a lot of entries for – and we covered them throughout, with Mario Kart 64 being an early game and Mario Kart DS making for […]

700th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo Another landmark! 700 already. I mean, this is 7 years in the making, but we’re getting closer all the time. At this point, there are some game series I really need to start – multiple entries where I […]
