1009th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Various Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Dimps/Capcom Publisher: Capcom It feels right to finish the list of fighting games with a Street Fighter game. Not because I would say it’s my preferred series (in the end Smash Bros connects more with me) but because it really popularized the […]

986th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: PC?Internet/Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2008 Developer: PopCap Games Publisher: PopCap Games A decade later, it’s hard not to feel that Bejeweled lost out after Candy Crush Saga created a large list of match three games to fight for everyone’s attention on phones. There have been a lot […]

978th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: iPhone/Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Capybara Games Publisher: Disney Interactive Studios/Starwave At this point, a lot of block puzzles revolve as much around how you theme it as it does about the gameplay itself. While we’ve seen a bunch of variations on the theme, premium versions […]

974th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Crystal Dynamics Publisher: Eidos Interactive It’s hard not to feel that the Tomb Raider franchise has been overtaken. They are still decently well regarded, but after the most recent entries it seems like the series has lost it a bit. It doesn’t […]

966th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Project Soul Publisher: Namco Bandai Game I had a bit of a discussion on what fighting game to leave until last, and between SoulCalibur and Street Fighter, the latter seemed more appropriate – even more when you consider our first […]

961st played so far Genre: Adventure/Fighting Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Team Ninja Publisher: Microsoft One of the stranger and more frustrating features of the list are the near-duplicate games.

956th played so far Genre: Action/Fighting Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Sora Ltd. Publisher: Nintendo I believe Super Smash Bros Ultimate, the currently latest in the series, hadn’t been released the last time I played a Super Smash Bros. game. I sunk a fair amount of time into that – not as much […]

This time, if the timings were reversed, I’d say it looks like a knock […]

930th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC/Xbox 360/Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Ubisoft Montreal Publisher: Ubisoft Another FPS, another Tom Clancy game. I’ve gone into my issues with the series before, like when we covered Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, and recent releases have not made that any better – in […]

919th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: GSC Game World Publisher: Deep Silver The last time I played a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game, we played it after we had just watched the movie of the same name this series was based on.
