945th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 1989 Developer: Oliver Twins Publisher: Codemasters Both because of my interest in older games and to prep playing older games, I regularly read the Retro Gamer magazine for a while. I haven’t taken the time to do so in a while, but one of […]

936th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 1987 Developer: MicroProse Publisher: MicroProse Sid Meier is of course most known for the Civilization series that bears his name, although even from Civilization II he has not been the lead designer on the game, seemingly spending as much time exploring other game ideas […]

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.

897th played so far Genre: Adventure Platform: Game Boy Year of Release: 1994 Developer: Rare Publisher: Titus France I guess I always forget how long the original Game Boy stuck around for. These isometric games in the vein of Knight Lore and Fairlight belong, in my mind, in the eighties, but Monster Max shows the […]

888th played so far Genre: Adventure/Fighting Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Ninja Theory Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment Time to be reductive: Heavenly Sword looks like a hack and slasher not unlike God of War or Ninja Gaiden, fighting your way through enemies with maybe some exploration. It’s no wonder that this studio […]

879th played so far Genre: Adventure/Fighting Platform: Playstation Portable Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Ready at Dawn Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment There’s still something amazing in my mind about some of the God of War fights – big and impressive at its best, although possibly not always as good in tying them together, from what […]

861st played so far Genre: Adventure/Platform Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Frontier Developments Publisher: Frontier Developments There was something incredibly charming about LostWinds, an IOS platformer where you controlled the winds that blow a character around, rather than making him jump directly. It felt uniquely suited to touch controls, although I can see […]
