And some hints for the unguessed ones:

50. Play along with tons of songs in Fantasy worlds.

49. You're really starting to show your age.

47. Involves some 2D sidescrolling across beautiful feudal landscapes as it was painted before you.

46. You and crew are absolute animals and do all you can to save the galaxy (including barrel rolls).

50. Sounds like Theatrhythm Final Fantasy

49. I'm now convinced this is Metal Gear Solid 4

46. This must be a Star Fox game, I'll say Star Fox 64

All of the above are correct!

Another hint, though with this it should be a give-away. Don’t forget the first hint;

#27: Finally, building two roads next to each other doesn't just create one big mess of junctions.
Hint 2: I don’t know why things are numbered in the thousands, though I guess the devs realised this themselves as well with the fourth game.

OK, after the first hint I thought already Simcity but was too unsure. But Simcity 2000 was a thing and matches your second hint, so this must be Simcity 4.

Pure, raw platforming bliss. Great controls, great mechanics, great level design, great soundtrack. This game is simple and it is fun.

It is also hard.

This is one of those games that work solely through their concept. Portal was crazy innovative, and blowing our minds was pretty much all it had to do, hence why about half of the game is basically a tutorial - because it really doesn't feel like one the first time. Nowadays, it's kinda hard to get the same enjoyment out of this one, because when you know exactly how everything works, there's only a handful of challenging levels and most of the game just feels like... elementary school, really. The experience as a whole is quite impactful, what with all the memorable GLaDOS dialogue going on, and the rather awesome ending, but in a world where Portal 2 is a thing, this one is more of a novelty.
