A like.....or better: Brainstorming for Amiga Fans

Hi guys,

i just posted this one in the German Amiga Emulation Board but maybe some of you could be interested in this topic....

Okay...you should take the whole alphabet and write it down.
Then take letter after letter and think about games with the first letter in the name. The first game you remember should go directly to your paper / notepad.

Okay here are my results:

A Alien Breed
B Body Blows
C Cannonfodder
D Defender of the Crown
E Elvira 2
F F-19 Stealth Fighter
G Goal
H History Line
I International Karate +
J Jumping Jack'Son
K Knights of the Sky
L Leander
M Monkey Island
N North´b South
O Operation Stealth
P Pirates
Q Quest for the Time Bird
R Railroad Tycoon
S Sensible Soccer
T Turrican
U Unreal
V Vampires Empire
W Wings of Fury
X Xenon 2
Y Yuppies Revenge
Z Zak McKracken

Great Idea! Although it means leaving alot of great games out so I've bracketed them where I really did think of more than one. And S is impossible to choose! I'm not sure where I should put games like The Secret of Monkey Island or The Settlers, so I may have listed them more than once.

A - Alien Breed
B - Battle Isle
C - Cannon Fodder (Chaos Engine a close second)
D - Dizzy (Diggers and Desert Strike spring to mind too)
E - Extreme Violence
F - Flashback
G - Galaga Deluxe
H - Hillsea Lido (Could easily be Historyline)
I - (Can't think of any I like, so can't think of any)
J - James Pond (Jungle Strike)
K - Knights
L - Liberation (Lemmings, Legend of Lothian)
M - Magic Pockets (Would be Monkey Island but technically its T for The or S for Secret)
N - Nicky Boom
O - Opperation Thunderbolt
P - Pirates/Gold! (Pang and Paperboy were also considered)
Q - Qwak
R - Ruff n Tumble (Very tempted to be Road Rash too)
S - Sh*tloads! Secret of Monkey Island, Sensible Soccer/SWOS, Settlers, Soccer Kid, Speedball 2, Superfrog, Syndicate, SWIV. I cannot single a game out for S, I end up torn between Sensi Soccer Settlers and Superfrog
T - Theme Park (Transplant is ace, and maybe I could stick The Settlers in)
U - UFO: Enemy Unknown (I've never played Ultima but I also thought of it)
V - Virocop
W - Worms
X - Xenon/2
Y - Yo Joe!
Z - Zool

You aren't supposed to list your favourite games, just the first one that comes into your mind, whether it's good or not!

@Cody
I know. The first and sometimes only games I think of are my favourites though, and when I think of some letters more than one game comes to my mind, so I decide which one to put in by which I like better. I feared I might have spoiled the point but once I'd spent time thinking about this I didn't want it to be wasted.
