1007th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Various Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Slightly Mad Studios Publisher: Electronic Arts The Need for Speed series is one that has been around for a long time now, with (from memory) its 1994 release with its 3D cards impressing us back in the day. It’s been a mainstay […]

1004th played so far Genre: Flight Simulator Platform: Various Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Gaijin Entertainment Publisher: 505 Games/Gaijin Entertainment Unlike other genres, there was no planning around the final flight simulator. IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey is a sequel to IL-2 Sturmovik, which I played ‘only’ four years ago, which helped contain it, but […]

1002nd played so far Genre: Pinball Platform: Various Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Farsight Studios Publisher: Crave Entertainment/Play It Unlike my edutainment games, I got my pinball games spread out quite well, with Pinball Dreams coming in fairly early and Flipnic fitting pretty neatly between that game and today. I’m pretty sure it’s also the […]

1001th played so far Genre: Interactive Fiction Platform: Various Year of Release: 1984 Developer: Infocom Publisher: Infocom So this is weird. If there had not been a second edition of the book, I would be done now – instead I’m going into overtime. I’m playing the final double digit game – it was the last […]

974th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Crystal Dynamics Publisher: Eidos Interactive It’s hard not to feel that the Tomb Raider franchise has been overtaken. They are still decently well regarded, but after the most recent entries it seems like the series has lost it a bit. It doesn’t […]

973rd played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: Various Year of Release: 2011 Developer: Eidos Montreal Publisher: Square Enix I’ve always had Deus Ex on my list of beloved games, since seeing it for the first time. With Invisible War making for a disappointing sequel, I didn’t expect to see the series again. Seeing a sequel […]

962nd played so far Genre: Sports Platform: Various Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Sega AM3/Sumo Digital Publisher: Sega It feels like it’s only been weeks since I played Mario Power Tennis, the previous tennis (or tennis-inspired) game, even if it’s been over half a year. But as I approach the end of the entire list, […]

945th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 1989 Developer: Oliver Twins Publisher: Codemasters Both because of my interest in older games and to prep playing older games, I regularly read the Retro Gamer magazine for a while. I haven’t taken the time to do so in a while, but one of […]

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 […]

936th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Various Year of Release: 1987 Developer: MicroProse Publisher: MicroProse Sid Meier is of course most known for the Civilization series that bears his name, although even from Civilization II he has not been the lead designer on the game, seemingly spending as much time exploring other game ideas […]
