I beg to differ. They all falled short of Sonic, but there were pretty excellent efforts.
I'll name a few:
Ruff n Tumble
James Pond 3
...to name but a few. Truth is, in the consoles, the only two majorly excellent platform games were the Sonic and Mario sagas. The rest were all feeble wannabes, and falled short just as much as their Amiga counterparts.
"Best Amiga games ever" lists are shit that will vary depending to each other, but you WILL see Turrican II in many of them.
