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 […]

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 […]

964th played so far Genre: Platform/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Insomniac Games Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment We’ve got a nice minor landmark here. While I’ve been avoiding finishing genres, the Ratchet & Clank series is one of the later entries in the “character and sidekick” series of 3D platformers […]

887th played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Naughty Dog Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment For some reason, we played some Daxter before I covered either this game or the first Jak & Daxter game.

873rd played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Master System Year of Release: 1986 Developer: Sega Publisher: Sega Rather than discussing yet another platformer, can I say how much I enjoy this style of box art? You see the blue lined graph paper on a couple of boxes and the fun art on top of something […]

862nd played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Sucker Punch Productions Publisher: Ubi Soft My first encounter with Rocket: Robot on Wheels was actually through the video of a tool-assisted speedrun, which showed an action platformer that clearly drew on the Super Mario 64 set up of worlds with […]

861st played so far Genre: Adventure/Platform Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Frontier Developments Publisher: Frontier Developments There was something incredibly charming about LostWinds, an IOS platformer where you controlled the winds that blow a character around, rather than making him jump directly. It felt uniquely suited to touch controls, although I can see […]

848th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1999 Developer: SCE Japan Studio Publisher: Sony Computer More monkeys? Super Monkey Ball wasn’t enough, so I’m going to go for Ape Escape, which feature more cute looking primates. We’re chasing them rather than freeing them, but the theme continues. Our Thoughts Ape […]

841st played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Sucker Punch Productions Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment The Sly series is another one where we have a big gap between the two games of the series. We played Sly Cooper about nine years ago, as part of a collection of games […]

828th played so far Genre: Action/Platform Platform: Nintendo 64/Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1998 Developer: DMA Design Publisher: Take Two Interactive It feels like the Nintendo 64 era was the high point of the 3D action platformers – your Super Mario 64s and Banjo Kazooies. Sure, later platforms had them too, but they were so […]
