971st played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1994 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom In the list of RPGs, the Breath of Fire series feels like an also-ran – a decently successful series that never quite got the traction Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest did. It had six entries – one of which […]

948th played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Beam Software Publisher: Data East I’ve always been curious about the Shadowrun universe. Not enough to play a paper and pencil RPG with it, but there’s something about the cyberpunk universe that’s interesting, with a dystopia that seemed prescient. Yeah, I backed […]

907th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1991 Developer: Konami Publisher: Konami I think The Legend of the Mystical Ninja is another game that I’ve only heard of because of the list. Sure, it’s had some sequels, but even now this list is the only association I’ve had with it. With […]

903rd played so far Genre: Action/Role-Playing Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1993 Developer: Square Publisher: Square Thanks to a lovely Christmas present, I got the Switch port of the Mana trilogy (Collection of Mana), including the most liked Secret of Mana that ended up on the list. It took me about five months more to […]

866th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1994 Developer: Nintendo R&D3/Locomotive Corporation Publisher: Nintendo When I played the Wii version of Punch-Out, it was more or less a remake of the original NES game – or at least inspired enough by it. The SNES sequel of the original NES game, on […]

814th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1992 Developer: NCS Corp Publisher: Konami As I don’t have much of an interest in shooters, I have a bunch of series that I clearly messed out on. Assault Suits, which this is a part of (Cybernator being the international title) is […]

#322 Donkey Kong Country 3

813th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Rare Publisher: Nintendo It feels like Donkey Kong always took some weird turns in his gaming appearances. Originally, the ape was Mario’s big enemy, and vice versa. Skipping ahead a couple of years (and, conveniently, this game) he appeared in the Mario […]

803rd played so far Genre: Role-Playing Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1992 Developer: Chunsoft Publisher: Enix For those of you following along on this: Yes, this is a game release in 1992 with a number that goes far higher than this. When putting the first edition of the 1001 list together, the editors seem to […]

748th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1992 Developer: Konami Publisher: Konami I’m making my way through the franchises I haven’t started yet, I am coming across some that I haven’t started because I haven’t really cared enough. The Contra series is another run and gun series – very […]

712th played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Quintet Publisher: Enix I played Actraiser a long time ago, probably by getting through some random SNES games when I had a chance to – I don’t really know what attracted me to it, but I connected with it. It’s a game […]
