Ok, I will take...

1. Sensible Soccer Int.Ed (Life without Football of some sort wouldn't be worth it)

2. Cannon fodder (The thought of never playing it again would drive me mad)

3. Chaos Engine (I Still havent finished it)

4. Flashback (I can admire the backdrops in the game when the natural beauty of the Island becomes a bore)

5. Pinball Illusions (I like this more than Slamtilt and Slamtilt is one of my favourite games..!?)

6. Speedball II (I need to practice this before I leave for the Island as I am still Sh*t at it - but I love it.)

7. Super Skidmarks (Split Screen Wheelchair racing - PS3 my ar*e)

8. Syndicate (Something for the Evenings)

Of course, if I ever find "Scavenge" again - the long lost PD game, I would have to take that, however that is a two player game only so perhaps one of the native women of the Island would be able to help out...

I better take my Tower project as well which seems to be taking me ages...
Hard Drives over 4 GIG are a Bast**d to set up...

Mine would be as follows:-

1. Sensible world of soccer
2. Centurion
3. Might and Magic 2
4. Civilisation
5. Wings
6. Moria or perhaps Hybris (undecided on this one!)
7. IK+
8. Stunt Car Racer


Though I'd like to think I could take alot more! It would be too hard to choose.

I would bring
SWOS 96/97
Sensible Giolf
Settlers

Well, if I'm sent to a desert island, with nothing more with me than an Amiga, I don't care what games I can bring, as I would not have time for playing around. I need to build a shelter first, find food..... and besides, a desert island usually have no stuff like sockets, electicity to power the Amiga.

Just my 2 cents.

Syndicate - getting back into it and it's one that holds more memories than most for me.
Sim City - yes, the very original one.
Champ Manager 93/94 - so I could keep on trying to get Port Vale to the Premiership/league

I'd love to take Goal!, but not really a 1 player game. ATR the same, it's 2 player only imo. So unless I've got a friend, it's got to be decent 1 player games.

Overall I'd probably rather swap a game for Octamed and a sampler
