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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

963rd played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Kuju Entertainment Publisher: Nintendo For some reason I thought Battalion Wars was a prequel to Advance Wars: the big game version of it before it was adapted for the handheld. I was wrong – not only did this come later, it changed […]

#876 Super Smash Bros. Brawl

956th played so far Genre: Action/Fighting Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Sora Ltd. Publisher: Nintendo I believe Super Smash Bros Ultimate, the currently latest in the series, hadn’t been released the last time I played a Super Smash Bros. game. I sunk a fair amount of time into that – not as much […]

943rd played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Q-Games Publisher: Nintendo Looking at the list of other Q-games titles we’ve played and that they published, such as the Pixeljunk series, Starship Patrol and Reflect Missile, it’s clear that they were one of the known indie developers for Sony and […]
