Play That Game

1340+ lists combined to create the TSPDT of video games.


Right, I was going to share this a few days ago but figured that I would wait until Kasparius finished his list. It's been interesting to see how his list compared to the one I ended up making.

So yes, this website has been 2 years in the making and I finally got to sticking this online 2 weeks ago.

I would love to know your thoughts and maybe stir a gaming discussion.

So yes, go to playthatgame.co.uk to see this list in action!!!

If ICM allowed video-games on the site, we could make this list official. ;)

Because I was a kid :P I've tried playing on emulator a few years ago but the controls are so awkward I can't get back into that mindset which is really irritating.

It was made around the N64 controller. It still plays fantastic on a Nintendo 64, or if you manage to config a good controller properly. I tried it recently on an emulator with my Wii U controller Pro and it worked great.

How can you "finish" World of Warcraft"?

It kind of pisses me off that World of Warcraft is number 6, I wanted to be able to complete the top 100...

Thanks :)

It's a good thing that I could glean a lot of that from another site and not have to do all that data entry myself. Isn't perfect... so it's a still a work in progress.

Can a person beat Tetris? Is there a kill screen? I've only been able to get to around level 15.

Going through the list...there was about 200 games I knew about...sure most of them were sports titles but so many 80's computer games that look interesting that I never played.

Dune II is perhaps the most important RTS because of what it started. Almost every RTS since has taken influence from it.

When it comes to winding down after a hard day's work, I honestly go for the easier difficulty or if I'm really stressed just using cheats.

In a sick way, it was very relaxing to just make tons and tons of armies in Rome: Total War with cheats and just destroy everyone.

On my custom made PC with a 32 inch LED monitor obviously.

I just wanted to say the typical response that people would say when they get called a noob.

I used that Lag thing once, for Monster Hunter 4, because it actually happened. I had no idea it was a bad excuse.

I played it on PS2. But then again I was a teen then so I might feel different about the game now. However what I did play more recently was Wind Waker and I had the same escortist complaints so my opinion probably isn't gonna change.

I was into Call of Duty 4 as a teen and trust me, you would hear that so fucking often. There's a reason why it turned into a joke.
