Amiga Hall of Fame 1996 Nominations

Amiga Hall of Fame 1996 Nominations. I havenít donít a hall of fame post in almost a year, lots has happened to keep me busy but now I have time to start these up again. For those people who are new to EAB I have put together a list of previous winners;

Previous Winners:
85/86: Defender of the Crown
87: Arkanoid
88: IK+
89: Elite
1980ís Winner was: IK+ (just a bit of fun that poll)

90: Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe
91: Turrican II
92: Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge
93: Cannon Fodder
94: Sensible World of Soccer
95: Worms!

Again please be nice and keep you nominations to a MAXIMUM of 10 per person, although I donít think many people will find that many to nominate. You can do an advanced search on HOL for games released in 1996 if you need a list or use the link below.

HOL 1996

BEWARE, re-releases and aga/cd32 versions of older games do not count as new games for 1996 and are therefore not eligible for entry. Unless they have been both altered by a large amount and you can convince the rest of us to allow it in. Therefore SWOS 95/96 would not be considered a new game.

Iíll let this run about a week or until it looks like it done, then Iíll create the poll for the vote. So off you goÖ

Oh dear god, the Amiga really was dying in 1996!

Is the time difference in Canada one year? Or you been that lazy you fat f*ck!

Gotta be Slam Tilt, with honourable mention to

Breed 96 (Shareware)
Watchtower
XP8

I can see Slam Tilt running away with this to be honest

1996 only 150 entries on HOL :(

So here we are choosing a game that defines the amiga in 1996...

well there are several areas to consider so I have choosen a couple and I hope to explain my thoughts on this...

first up is

Shareware Freeware Honourables for 1996!

Aerial Racers
Battle Craft
Breed 96

out of these I felt that Battle craft really captured something in 96, what with blizzards warcraft and starcraft this seemed to have that same something.

Commercial releases

The Chaos Engine 2
Slam Tilt
SuperStreetFighter 2 Turbo

From here I reason out a game that pushes the limmits with gameplay / graphics and playability and in this one it has to be SlamTilt!

If only they had released it!

Evils Doom

Its one I would most certainly owned, bringing back the dungeon crawler with slick AGA graphics blended with real speach and cd atmospheric music... mmm if only....

Worst Game Contenders for 1996

Pinball Prelude


funny.... i couldn`t find another contender... well atleast pinball prelude one something by default....


so here it is...


for 1996 the game that defines the Amiga

Slam Tilt

Erm.......... Kick Off 96? Kang Fu? Pinball Hazard? I know Prelude's not everyone's cup of tea but I certainly wouldn't say it was the worst game of the year. Just my $0.02

Freaky lives in Canada, he moved there very recently And it's been a year since he posted his last poll so I figured it must be something to do with the time difference

And it's not my fault my site isn't 'fully operational' (stops emperor style voice), it's the server's fault. The files are there, it's just nobody can download more than 20mb of a pack because of shitty cgi timeouts.

As soon as it's fixed I'll click one button and BOOM!

no but as many of the games from 96 is datadisc (or updated version of older games) I guess the list will be very very short if we dont put them on the list
