Marble Madness & Lemmings in 1991. I already knew Marble Madness from the arcades and the conversion just amazed me.
I bought an amiga 2 months later and flunked the exams this same year

Pretty sure it was Test Drive, followed soon after by Firepower and Faery Tale.

Gunship (original) by MicroProse, after having the C64 version the Miggy version was so much better it got me addicted to Miggy flight-sims!

BTW Big-Byte, your avatar is freakin' AWESOME!

I cant really remember properly as this was 1988 or 89 but the first games that I remember playing at my cousins place where POW (which made me dream of an amiga for myself!) Defender of the Crown, Ports of Call (ah yeah) BattleSquadron, Speedball, Marble Madness (which looked amazing)...

but what really really caught me was the scene, those demos and those cool tools... my cousin came from the C64 scene and was quite active so he knew all about it... he was the one who introduced me to the real thang! And in Germany the scene was so amazing at that time that I really wish I could timetravel...

I'm pretty sure the first game I saw was SOTB2... the intro was simply stunning since all I had seen before then was the Commodore 16 and the Acorn Electron. I also saw DPaint and was impressed. It was due to the power of DPaint we bought an Amiga since my sister was an art student and wanted a computer to do her work on. I remember that I even did homework on it whilst I was at school - I used to use Imagine to render funky graphics to go into my essays!

For me it was Blood Money. The intro totally blew me away, and just like Defender of the Crown made me buy an ST, this game pushed me into purchasing an Amiga.

Merv the Merciless, with its neighbours theme, aslo had a strong influence on my decision as well...............not.

I think the 1st game I played was "CarvUP" the one where your that red car looking like lighting mcqueen, and jumped girders etc.

The others were Lotus and Persian gulf inferno

Lotus Turbo Challenge II. Then Lemmings, Killing Gameshow and Beast. in parallel Startrekker v1.2... needless to say why I still love Amiga, I think.

It was Dragons Lair and Sword or Sodan for me. We bought them both with the Amiga 500 and I was totally blown away by dragons lair even though there wasnt much gameplay!

nooooooooooo. The Amiga and the MSX are both masterpieces in their own right. If you have either you should be damned happy. The MSX has some amazing games that Commodore systems have never seen.
