914th played so far Genre: Action Platform: PC Year of Release: 2012 Developer: Dennaton Games Publisher: Devolver Digital It feels like Hotline Miami is one of those indie darlings that started off the indie explosion that mostly happened after the list, where smaller games had a bigger scope. I’ve heard people say good things about […]

912th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo Thanks to the Book of Mudora podcast, I’ve been steeped in Legend of Zelda lore recently¬† – something that seems way deeper than the games justify, but it’s fun anyway.

907th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Konami Publisher: Konami I think The Legend of the Mystical Ninja is another game that I’ve only heard of because of the list.

893rd played so far Genre: Action Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1989 Developer: Sega Publisher: Sega I’m sure I’ve mentioned wanting to make sure I spread out entries in a series, but I haven’t done a great job with Shinobi.

890th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Various Year of Release: 1988 Developer: Novotrade Publisher: Epyx Impossible Mission II is, in fact, not related to the Mission Impossible franchise, despite using the same words in the title.

889th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Playstation Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Entertainment Software Publishing/Working Designs I feel like we’ve been covering a bunch of games by Treasure recently, with action shooters being one of their clear fortes that we’ve covered with Alien Soldier and the Gunstar Heroes series.

887th played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Naughty Dog Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment For some reason, we played some Daxter before I covered either this game or the first Jak & Daxter game.
