What Amiga-conversions did you miss the most?

I remember being so jealous on PC-owners of all the great games that appeared on their computers after 92-93, but never arrived on Amiga, not even on A1200. What old classic PC-titles did you miss the most on the Amiga and made you finally switch to PC and which of the mentioned games would have been possible to do an Amiga-conversion of if the really wanted?

DOTT for me too, but you can play it now with ScummVM. I wouldnt want to see any work done on porting them today. Most (All?) amiga owners have a PC today.

Wish there had been an Amiga (PPC) port of Curse Of Monkey Island

I'd say wacky wheels and micro machines II. But they are not listed.

I think Myst was the first PC game that gripped me. Not that it couldn't have been done on Amiga, but the beautiful (at the time!) rendered graphics would have looked a bit worse and loaded a lot slower. I always envied those guys at Cyan who did a perfectly playable game from "just" an idea and a pretty crappy picture-flipping interface. It shows what you can achieve with a solid game plan.
