Amiga games that started something?

What is, the Best Amiga Game, not because Graphics or Sounds, but because the whole Game(game play, story, graphics...)?

Ooh, that's a very subjective question. If you're looking for the best Amiga original game (whether ported later or not), I'd hazard a guess that both Lemmings and Worms might actually score really well.

They're not my personal favourites, but they both started massively successful franchises (with Worms being more successful in sequels and Lemmings being very successful straight away but doing worse in later decades) and thus started a true 'Amiga legacy' in gaming.

I'm sure this has been discussed numerous times before on EAB.

Too lazy to search for previous threads, like sandruzzo was... and can't be bothered answering again

roondar is correct; it's all very subjective anyway...

Well, your title says "Amiga Best Game?"...

If you meant something else then write it!!!

Ok, I've now changed the thread to be "Amiga games that started something?".

In my opinion Dune II, Maniac Mansion and Elite
really started something...

Played and loved them back then. I even reached status "deadly" in Elite on the C64 which takes a loooot of time

If I'm not wrong Dune II even started a genre (!)

As usual these games were released on many platforms back then. For example Elite first came out for the BBC Micro and following it's enourmous success it was quickly adapted to many systems.
