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.

826th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo Sometimes, going into a game, you know it’s not going to be great.

808th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Various Year of Release: 1987 Developer: Epyx Publisher: Epyx Out of all these replay games, California Games is the one I’ve probably known longest – even in the full list there are a few (like Donkey Kong and Pac-Man) that could match it. I played it, in part, […]

761st played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1985 Developer: Tehkan Publisher: Tecmo It’s amazing how many football games are in the list and in particular how far they are spread throughout the years – other sports may have had their recent game stay on while FIFA 10 was booted off, but […]

746th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Various Year of Release: 2009 Developer: EA Tiburon Publisher: Electronic Arts I’ve mentioned my general discomfort with sports games before, as a genre that I don’t get much out of.

669th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Various Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Visual Concepts Publisher: 2K Sports I’ll be honest, I feel like a lot of these sports games are ones I have to cover – the yearly entry of the time was put on the list as the best representative of football, hockey, […]

666th played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Various Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Neversoft Publisher: Activision We’ve played a Tony Hawk game before, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2. That was fine, a skating game in preset arenas that felt mismatched – not that natural and, even though you’d always want to create a setting with […]
