984th played so far Genre: Action/First-Person Shooter Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Retro Studios/Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo I’ve felt a bit ambivalent about Metroid Prime. Not because of the series itself, but because its Wii controls are quite bad and I’m glad that after having a short go at it, I switched to Gamecube […]

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 – […]

973rd played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: Various Year of Release: 2011 Developer: Eidos Montreal Publisher: Square Enix I’ve always had Deus Ex on my list of beloved games, since seeing it for the first time. With¬†Invisible War making for a disappointing sequel, I didn’t expect to see the series again. Seeing a sequel […]

955th played so far Genre: Action/First-Person Shooter Platform: PC/Xbox/Gamecube Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Raven Software Publisher: LucasArts So I still had two Star Wars games left to play, and it felt like it has been a while since I played with force powers, rather than flying ships around.¬†We’ve played Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark […]

941st played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Irrational Games Publisher: Vivendi Universal Games In this day and age, it’s already quite uncomfortable to play as a member of the American police, doing SWAT operations, taking down criminals with a lot of violence and all that. I played the […]

930th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC/Xbox 360/Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Ubisoft Montreal Publisher: Ubisoft Another FPS, another Tom Clancy game. I’ve gone into my issues with the series before, like when we covered Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, and recent releases have not made that any better – in […]

919th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: GSC Game World Publisher: Deep Silver The last time I played a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game, we played it after we had just watched the movie of the same name this series was based on.

910th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Bungie Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios It feels weirdly apt to cover an older Halo game now, as the anniversary edition has been recently released as I type this. It’s the last in the series that’s on the list, although Halo […]

881st played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Crytek Publisher: Ubisoft I’ve really played this series out of order.

870th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: id Software Publisher: Activision Doom and Doom II were the two games that started the FPS genre – not the first to exist, but they defined a lot of how it worked. Being open sourced let to its life being lengthened, […]
