1019th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Creative Assembly Publisher: Sega Even without the blog, I’ve been getting invested in the Total War franchise. I’ve played the Warhammer variants quite a bit and relatively recently got into Total War: Three Kingdoms, set (I believe) in the Suikoden era of […]

1018th played so far Genre: Life Simulation Platform: Various Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Maxis Publisher: Electronic Arts I don’t think I need to explain why The Sims 3 is my final life simulation game. As I mentioned with SimCity 4, this is the main game that has taken Maxis’ attention and while The Sims […]

1013th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo When looking at the remaining sports game, I ended up looking at the various minigame collections as they suited me most. With that, it made sense to me to finish on the Wii sequel, as it feels like […]

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 […]

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 […]

993rd played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: PC Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Petri Purho There’s this fun little genre of puzzle games that consists of small Rube Goldberg setups, where you add some bits and pieces to a level to reach your goal – often bringing one thing to another. The Incredible Machine and […]

981st played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC/Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Starbreeze Studios Publisher: Atari I think I’ve discussed enough of this game series’ history in my review of Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay (the series certainly loves its long titles). This, somehow, feels even more remarkable – […]

980th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Nintendo DS/PSP/iPhone Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Rockstar Leeds/Rockstar North Publisher: Rockstar Games For the final Grand Theft Auto series we go to something atypical for the modern series – a handheld entry in the series that I’m sure will be compromise. The game has an overhead perspective […]

#960 Rhythm Heaven

970th played so far Genre: Music Platform: DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Nintendo SPD/TNX Music Recordings Publisher: Nintendo It feels like I’ve always mentally divided music games between instrument-based rhythm games and other rhythm games – possibly with a handful that don’t go either way, like how Singstar technically isn’t. That last instrument based […]

950th played so far Genre: Survival Horror/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Xbox 360/Playstation 3/PC Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom As I’m preparing to play this  – probably the last ‘normal’ landmark game before they’re all significant milestones – it’s the last game on the list of the influential Resident Evil survival horror franchise.
