899th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Sega Saturn Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Entertainment Software Publishing/Sega I feel like I’ve been running into a lot of Treasure’s games lately. Silhouette Mirage was a recent action platformer, but with Radiant Silvergun we follow the trend of Sin and Punishment and Gradius […]

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. I played the previous one just over two years ago, but here we’ve got […]

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 […]

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 […]

854th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Sega AM 2 Publisher: Sega For today’s shoot ’em up, we get a flight simulator-like plane dog fighting game. Rather than the focus on accuracy of the former, getting the shooting in is more important – it looks like a […]

845th played so far Genre: Life Simulation Platform: Dreamcast Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Vivarium/Jellyvision Publisher: Sega It’s quite difficult to play Seaman these days. It was only released for the Dreamcast and needed a specific microphone that could plug into your controller and play. These are difficult to find, so you need to use […]

838th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Arcade/Dreamcast Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Sega AM 2 Publisher: Sega I think today’s game has one of the longest titles on the list, as well as one that has some of the more random words thrown together – I don’t expect tangrams to feature at all in […]

820th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Creative Assembly Publisher: Sega It’s been about 400 games – and so four years – since I last played a Total War game, in Rome: Total War, and about seven years since I played Medieval: Total War, the first game in this […]

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 […]
