990th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: SNES/Saturn/Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1995 Developer: Quest Publisher: Quest/Riverhillsoft/Atlus As I’m going through I’m reaching all of these minor milestones. It’s been a while since I played my last western RPG – arguably Shadowrun or Dungeon Master if you’re looking at something more traditional. They are the […]

976th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC/Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Bullfrog Productions Publisher: Electronic Arts For my final Bullfrog game – I’d forgotten I had one left – we return to the cyberpunk setting of Syndicate with Syndicate Wars, a sequel that leaps ahead to an even more corporate focused era. […]

959th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Square Product Development Division 3 Publisher: Square Chrono Trigger was one of the biggest RPGs of the 16-bit era and probably rivals only Final Fantasy VI in its focus on JRPG character building and story telling, even outshining it as it […]

911th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Light Weight Publisher: Square/Sony Computer Entertainment I’ve not heard of Bushido Blade before the blog, and I don’t think I will after – there was a sequel, but it does look like it didn’t go anywhere. It feels like it fits […]

895th played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1997 Developer: G-Artists Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment Intelligent Qube feels like it fits in with a number of these puzzle games with simpler graphics, using the system’s 3D capabilities but using the abstraction to not need complicated graphics. Devil Dice comes to mind […]

886th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco The Ridge Racer series naming convention really gets confusing – aside from there being a second Ridge Racer with the same name on the list, this seems like the fourth one – although I keep forgetting it’s part […]

877th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Square Product Development Division 6 Publisher: Square I’ve been looking forward to playing Front Mission 3 – at its core a tactics game like Final Fantasy Tactics, but with mechs and all that. It also seems appropriately story dense and in […]

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 […]

782nd played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade/Playstation 1/Dreamcast Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom I’ve played a bunch of Street Fighter games before and, well, I think they’ve been looking better over time. Now while this might seem like another variation of the third game, based on the title, it’s actually part […]

661st played so far Genre: Shoot-Em Up Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Irem Publisher: Irem/Agetec/Sony Today we go back to the world of R-Type, a side-scrolling shooter that is more or less just that. It was decent, incredibly difficult but with really good bosses… assuming you reached them. We’ve now reached the […]
