1008th played so far Genre:¬†Platform Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2010 Developer: Nintendo EAD Tokyo Publisher: Nintendo There are, of course, a lot of platform games on the list. And while there are many big names in the genre, I think it’s indisputable that Mario is the king of the genre. While the original Super […]

998th played so far Genre: Action/Adventure Platform: Gamecube/Wii Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo As I’m starting to round up games, it’s time to say goodbye to another major franchise. I’ve always enjoyed the look of The Legend of Zelda series, my experience was always with the original 2D entries, with the […]

984th played so far Genre: Action/First-Person Shooter Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Retro Studios/Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo I’ve felt a bit ambivalent about Metroid Prime. Not because of the series itself, but because its Wii controls are quite bad and I’m glad that after having a short go at it, I switched to Gamecube […]

972nd played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Ignition Banbury Publisher: Ignition Entertainment/Atari Remember Mercury Meltdown? We’re finally playing its Wii-based sequel! Our Thoughts The Mercury Meltdown series is an odd one. While there are several different entries in the series, they are all versions of the same game for […]

956th played so far Genre: Action/Fighting Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Sora Ltd. Publisher: Nintendo I believe Super Smash Bros Ultimate, the currently latest in the series, hadn’t been released the last time I played a Super Smash Bros. game. I sunk a fair amount of time into that – not as much […]

929th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Ronimo Games Publisher: Ronimo Games Did you know that the only physical release of Swords & Soldiers seems to have been the German version? It’s the only one I could find, at least, which worried me a bit at first. It was […]

874th played so far Genre: Survival Horror Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Tecmo Publisher: Nintendo It’s always a bit weird when both parts of a known horror franchise are on the list when I hadn’t heard of it before the list’s existence. We covered the Fatal Frame series, a survival horror game that […]

871st played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Mindware Corp Publisher: Nintendo With all the digital storefronts disappearing – in particular Nintendo’s offerings disappear early – it feels right to get these indie titles done earlier so I don’t have to worry about disappearing or breaking consoles. So far we’ve […]

861st played so far Genre: Adventure/Platform Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Frontier Developments Publisher: Frontier Developments There was something incredibly charming about LostWinds, an IOS platformer where you controlled the winds that blow a character around, rather than making him jump directly. It felt uniquely suited to touch controls, although I can see […]

822nd played so far Genre: Simulation Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Atlus Publisher: Atlus/Nintendo Going back to game series we first, and last, played a long time ago, the original Trauma Center was a fun surgery-based game that made good use of the touchscreen. It took me three quarters of the list – […]
