Thats what cut and paste are for, but yeah it still took a while to do that. After much thinking I voted for Sim City, again I voted based on how much time I spent on it.

Rainbow Islands - the best platformer ever written.

What a great year 1989 was. Time to get that Stone Roses album out again...

Huge list and great job, FWW!
As usual, when there are so many titles it would be very difficult...

Barbarian 2 -> A great sequel, much better than the first
Battle Squadron -> On of the best SEU
Beast -> Big piece of history, even if overrated
Bubble Bobble -> Best game ever, but Amiga version isn't so good (IMHO)
Future Wars -> Delphine's first hit
Maniac Mansion -> Classic of the classics
Kick Off -> Bugged but I spend on it soooo many hours with my friends!!!
New Zealand Story -> Nice conversion
Ninja Warriors -> Very nice conversion and music
Rainbow Island -> This rocks
R-Type -> Always loved this game
Xenon 2 -> Stunning but overrrated

This time is really too difficult... I'll think on it and I'll vote next week!

TwinWorld because it deserves a vote at least. I am going to be the only one to cast it, but whatever! It was a nice platform game with a great atmosphere.

this was a tough one, but after careful consideration I casted my vote on Indy.

I just have to say that "twin world" is very underrated and it absolutely deserves to be mentioned, I loved that game!

Now this was one tricky fucking vote. I really struggled to commit myself to one vote. But alas it had to be done for the sake of Mr Freaky.

I had 3 in my head, New Zealand Story, Rainbow Islands and R-Type. After much umming and arring I opted for R-Type. Rainbow Islands was an extremely close call though.

After this vote freaky you can move on to the "Best Game of The 80's"

close one for me, half way inbetween It Came from the Desert, and North and South... but then I remembered them cool little bonus train robbery stages, that nabbed first.... Both VERY original games, but the list was mighty fine - also thought about Indy Jones and Maniac Mansion, but... nah :-)
2player games are phun!

It came down to 3: It came down .... ok no It came from the Desert, Kick Off and Blood Money. Kick off - fantastic - right Wolf, too buggy, out. Blood Money, perfection, 2-player, memorable soundtrack, but vote goes to It Came From The Desert for sheer amiga-game originality, atmosphere, haunting soundtrack and sexy nurse. Great list, amazing year, thanx Freakyweakywoo.

Even though I voted for Elite, I am really happy to see Battle Squadron leading the poll...
