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. While I’ve been avoiding finishing genres, the Ratchet & Clank series is one of the later entries in the “character and sidekick” series of 3D platformers […]

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. In my head, I’m expecting another action platformer, something Jak and Daxter in gameplay, with more of an aesthetic of Rocket: Robot on […]

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. I mean, on an 11 year schedule […]

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. Where other games have been okay to let you shoot while driving sometimes – […]

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 […]
