Week of Games: Number 1

Saturday 30 September (2006)

Well, here we are. A historic week of sustained consecutive posts, and a fine list of games, which you can view below. There remains but one.

What could it be? Perhaps Worms Armageddon, a game I have clocked up scores of hours playing? Or maybe that game is too annoying. It could be The Longest Journey, a point-and-click adventure game that told a story that was far too deep for its own good – but then, that Abnaxus really did piss me off. Maybe it’s Grand Theft Auto 3, another game that perfectly 3D-ified itself? Hellfire was great, but now we’re getting desperate. I’ve just realised that Toejam and Earl should have been at number 10, but alas, it is too late.

On with the show.

Week of Games: 10 & 9

Monday 25 September (2006)

This week is devoted to games. ‘Boo,’ I hear you cry, ‘games suck.’ But wait! These aren’t just any games – these are the best games ever made! That’s right, I’ve played every single game ever made (twice) just so that I would be informed, and now I’ve aggregated the results, and I bring them to you. The only rule is: only one game from each game series (so there can’t be three Sonic the Hedgehog games in the list.) Every day I’ll reveal another two games on the list until the final two, which I’m giving a day each to so I can write more about them – because, I mean, they’re the best. So read on, if you want me to blow your mind with cool.
