916th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Xbox/PC Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Hitmaker Publisher: Sega I’m not sure how Crazy Taxi 3 was already on my radar, but I remember the idle game using the franchise a few years ago grabbing my attention for a little while.

886th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco The Ridge Racer series naming convention really gets confusing – aside from there being a second Ridge Racer with the same name on the list, this seems like the fourth one – although I keep forgetting it’s part […]

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.

806th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: PC Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Stainless Games Publisher: Sales Curve Interactive/Interplay Entertainment Carmageddon is one of those games that felt like a transition to adulthood for me.

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.

Out Run is the canonical […]

710th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Game Boy Advance Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Intelligent Systems Publisher: Nintendo The Mario Kart series is one that we have to cover a lot of entries for – and we covered them throughout, with Mario Kart 64 being an early game and Mario Kart DS making for […]
