891st played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Taito Publisher: Taito For a lot of these shooters, it feels like it’s a bit more of the same – I swear that a lot of them go by different ways of handling weapons. Raiden, for example, always keeping you […]

876th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Seibu Kaihatsu Publisher: Tecmo Thanks to one bundle or another, I found out that this game has had at least four direct sequels, as well as, it seems, a couple of spin offs. The plot of the fifth game goes […]

855th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1987 Developer: Tecmo Publisher: Tecmo We have covered well over 100 shooters right now. From the outside, this looks like one of many sidescrollers that time hasn’t been kind too – probably with its own unique features, but nothing is jumping out […]

854th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Sega AM 2 Publisher: Sega For today’s shoot ’em up, we get a flight simulator-like plane dog fighting game. Rather than the focus on accuracy of the former, getting the shooting in is more important – it looks like a […]

838th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Arcade/Dreamcast Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Sega AM 2 Publisher: Sega I think today’s game has one of the longest titles on the list, as well as one that has some of the more random words thrown together – I don’t expect tangrams to feature at all in […]

833rd played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Konami Publisher:Konami In my last write up about Fuel, I wrote about games that would have been good when the book was published, but wasn’t as notable now. On the other hand, GTI Club Rally Cote d’Azur feels like it fits in […]

810th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco Do I need to say it? There are some games that I know are on the list for their impact or because they stand out in the genre, but where I know it doesn’t appeal. Rolling Thunder […]

805th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Atari Games Publisher: Atari Games While I’ve played Gauntlet before, as I said then, I’ve played its sequel before. In fact, as a family we played it as far as we could – not just me, but my sister and mother as […]

799th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco Racing and driving games are interesting entries on the list. They are quite well suited to the arcade when provided with time limits, but removing that would make them work for a console as well. They’re usually non violent, […]

782nd played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade/Playstation 1/Dreamcast Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom I’ve played a bunch of Street Fighter games before and, well, I think they’ve been looking better over time. Now while this might seem like another variation of the third game, based on the title, it’s actually part […]
