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, […]

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 […]

933rd played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Various Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: Sega Oh man, here we’ve got another version of the block dropping puzzle genre. Not to say that they’re bad – the popularity of Tetris is obvious and I’ve enjoyed many other games in the area. It’s just that […]

932th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Overworks Publisher: Sega We’ve covered a lot of games that made the jump from 2D to 3D – Super Mario 64 is the obvious example, while Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time did so around the same time of today’s […]

916th played so far Genre: Driving Platform: Xbox/PC Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Hitmaker Publisher: Sega I’m not sure how Crazy Taxi 3 was already on my radar, but I remember the idle game using the franchise a few years ago grabbing my attention for a little while. Beyond that, the idea game reminded me […]

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 […]
