996th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Volition Publisher: Interplay Entertainment I covered Descent a little while ago as an odd blast from the past. That game got a couple of sequels until we got Descent: Freespace, which started to take place in an open space rather […]

985th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Illusion Softworks Publisher: Gathering of Developers On my quest to slowly round up the duplicate genres that are left, I’m rounding off one of the shoot ’em up list – we’ve still got a bunch of them left and this […]

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 […]

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.

958th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade/Dreamcast/Gamecube Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Treasure I think I’m going to end up getting this wrong and come across it, but if I’m right this is the last Treasure game on the list. From their early start with Gunstar Heroes to their last […]

951th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Gamecube/Playstation 2/Xbox Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Swingin’ Ape Studio Publisher: Vivendi Universal Games I don’t quite know where this game will go.

946th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1988 Developer: Williams Electronics Publisher: WMS Industries It appears that Narc was another controversial game back when it was released because of the amount of violence in the game. That, I suspect, will be a quaint complaint knowing where we are now, […]
