1015th played so far Genre: Survival Horror Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Silicon Knights Publisher: Nintendo As I mentioned with Wing Commander IV a few days ago, I’ve kept a few games that I’ve been quite excited about until the end. Eternal Darkness has that sort of reputation – one that was a […]

1013th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo When looking at the remaining sports game, I ended up looking at the various minigame collections as they suited me most. With that, it made sense to me to finish on the Wii sequel, as it feels like […]

1011th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Hudson Soft/Blue Planet Software Publisher: Hudson Soft/Tetris Online Inc/Nintendo I don’t think it’s controversial to say that Tetris is one of the most successful games of all time. It’s the second-best selling video game franchise of all time – and that comes […]

1008th played so far Genre:¬†Platform Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2010 Developer: Nintendo EAD Tokyo Publisher: Nintendo There are, of course, a lot of platform games on the list. And while there are many big names in the genre, I think it’s indisputable that Mario is the king of the genre. While the original Super […]

1006th played so far Genre: Simulation Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo I’ve skipped really dealing with these sorts of ‘pet simulations’, with Eyepet being the other main item on the list (that isn’t a life simulation where you’re influencing humans). Where Eyepet was just as impressive because of […]

998th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Gamecube/Wii Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo As I’m starting to round up games, it’s time to say goodbye to another major franchise. I’ve always enjoyed the look of The Legend of Zelda series, my experience was always with the original 2D entries, with the […]

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 […]

#960 Rhythm Heaven

Tags: , , , , ,

970th played so far Genre: Music Platform: DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Nintendo SPD/TNX Music Recordings Publisher: Nintendo It feels like I’ve always mentally divided music games between instrument-based rhythm games and other rhythm games – possibly with a handful that don’t go either way, like how Singstar technically isn’t. That last instrument based […]

#611 Pikmin 2

967th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo While I enjoyed playing Pikmin, it was a flawed classic: The controls weren’t great and the time limit was one that made me quite nervous. I was hoping that a sequel would improve on that and although I […]

965th played so far Genre: Puzzle/Platform Platform: Game Boy Advance Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Nintendo Software Technology Publisher: Nintendo I couldn’t stay away from platform games forever. I’m running down various lists and this takes care of another double-genre game, while also getting me near the end of the Mario franchise. It’s slight throwback […]
