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.

950th played so far Genre: Survival Horror/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Xbox 360/Playstation 3/PC Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom As I’m preparing to play thisĀ  – probably the last ‘normal’ landmark game before they’re all significant milestones – it’s the last game on the list of the influential Resident Evil survival horror franchise.

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, […]

939th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Various Year of Release: 2003 Developer: IO Interactive Publisher: Electronic Arts Somehow I seem to have left all my IO Interactive games until the end – I played both Hitman 2: Silent Assassin and Hitman: Blood Money pretty recently.

934th played so far Genre: Driving/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Activision Publisher: Activision That’s right – it’s taking until the last 100 on the list to play the only driving/shoot ’em up game on the list.

931st played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Toaplan Publisher: Tecmo/Romstar/Toaplan While I admit I’ve never heard of them, it sounds like the main reason Out Zone is on this list is because it is one of the bigger games from its developer, Toaplan, who were apparently a […]

927th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Various Year of Release: 1995 Developer: Parallax Software Publisher: Interplay Productions Sorry, I guess there was another game waiting that I was familiar with – although I never ended up playing it myself, I had friends get into Descent before and watched it being played. I […]

926th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC/Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Volition Publisher: THQ I’ve really enjoyed the Saints Row series stylings, both the aggressive glee of the second games and the over the top feeling of its sequels even after it descends into hell, and weirdly Red Faction […]

922nd played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1987 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco/Atari Games We’ve had a lot of games in the Space Invaders mold already, including the original Galaga which updated the basic game by adding in swooping in, changing formations. They are some interesting games, and I believe […]

913th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 2002 Developer: Illusion Softworks Publisher: Gathering of Developers While Mafia was in development before Grand Theft Auto III was released, it’s hard to shake the impression that this came is building on that game from the first look.
