999th played so far Genre: Action/Edutainment Platform: Arcade/Dreamcast/PC Year of Release: 1999 Developer: WOW Entertainment/Smilebit Publisher: Sega The Typing of the Dead was the first game I reserved as a final game without being able to go back on it. We played The Logical Journey of the Zoombinis really early on, then reserved Oregon Trail […]

997th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Saturn Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Team Andromeda Publisher: Sega Once upon a time, years ago by now, we covered Panzer Dragoon Orta, an enjoyable 3D shooter focused around flying around your enemies and shooting from all sides while you’re on a dragon. It was incredibly difficult, but […]

992nd played so far Genre: Action Platform: Dreamcast Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Smilebit Publisher: Sega Back when we played Jet Set Radio Future it really felt like we found an odd piece.  While we obviously have plenty of other skateboarding games, with Tony Hawk‘s games being great, this game’s graffiti focus in a dystopian […]

989th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Wow Entertainment Publisher: Sega We’ve had a couple of light gun games left and The House of the Dead 2 is the last one left. We’ve played House of the Dead: Overkill somewhat recently, where we saw that the Wii […]

979th played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: Saturn Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Camelot Software Planning Publisher: Sega It feels like I’ve been needing to get through a number of Saturn-only titles that never gained a port, so require quite a bit more effort on my part. I played Burning Rangers last week and I’m […]

977th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Saturn Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: Sega Less than fifty games left and the list still brings up some pretty unique concepts. I don’t think I’ve played another game here where you are a firefighter. Sure, SOS The Final Escape/Disaster Report had you deal with […]

969th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1995 Developer: Sega AM 2 Publisher: Sega What can I say? I need to get through these light gun games. The CRTs that allow you to play these barely exist anymore, so in this case at least I’m going to play the […]

962nd played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Various Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Sega AM3/Sumo Digital Publisher: Sega It feels like it’s only been weeks since I played Mario Power Tennis, the previous tennis (or tennis-inspired) game, even if it’s been over half a year. But as I approach the end of the entire list, […]

Tags: , , , ,

957th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Saturn Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: Sega I think I only know Nights into Dreams from ancillary materials, based on the main character of Nights appearing in other games and places. I’ve heard some of it described on a podcast once – although mostly the […]

942nd played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1989 Developer: Technosoft Publisher: Technosoft/Sega Strategy games that predate Dune II and others that created the RTS genre are always odd. When you get something turn based you can easily go back to the likes of Archon, while something like Power Monger has […]
