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.

869th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1995 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Sega Throughout this list, the run and gun shooters continue to put me off – Alien Soldier was the most recent at the bottom of the list (like┬áReturn Fire) and I keep not really seeing why I’d […]

818th played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1996 Developer: BlueSky Software Publisher: SEGA There really was a trend in the mid-nineties, before the advent of 3D-capable consoles, where using pre-rendered 3D graphics was the best way to make your game seem modern. We’ve seen it on the SNES with Donkey […]

734th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1994 Developer: Zyrinx Publisher: Scavenger While we’ve played some in cave, sometimes land your ship shoot em ups before – Lunar Lander being the obvious one – I have conincidentally picked this and Pixeljunk Shooter to be played closely together. Both […]

546th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1989 Developer: Westone Publisher: Sega The late 80s and early 90s were filled with platformers, which is probably the reason why it still seems like main mode of gaming. Even early 3D consoles focused on it, combining it with 3D graphics to create […]

512th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Park Place Productions Publisher: EA Sports Time for another sports game – hockey again. NHL Hockey, unlike its more recent brother NHL 10, has stayed on the list of games – as you’d expect from an older game, really. I can’t […]

505th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1992 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: SEGA We’ve covered a few Sonic games before, including the original Sonic the Hedgehog.

343rd played so far Genre: Driving/Racing Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1994 Developer: Supersonic Software Publisher: Codemasters It’s been a while since we played the first Micro Machines. We enjoyed it – a colourful racer that allowed and encouraged you to go off-track, furnished with loads of household items to serve as obstacles and […]

310th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: Sega Wow. Back to Sonic already. Despite its status as big mascot, rivaling Mario at one time, only three games are listed, in contrast with Mario’s… well, lots. Not surprising considering the massive fall from grace the Sonic […]
