I'm not sure about "must play" but my all time favorites that I always keep going back to are Super Cars I & II, Twin World, P.P. Hammer, Pirates (Original Floppy Version) as well as just about every Sierra and Lucasfilm/Lucasarts game. It all pretty much depends on what genres you're into etc. I'm sure you can find threads with polls and stuff if you do some searching on the board

EDIT: How could I forget Sensible Soccer and Cannon Fodder? :O

Hi ,
I wasn't sure where to post this , so my apologese if this is the wrong area.
I am playing another world, a copy, how do I put the password code in, instead of playing all the way up to where I have acheived? I'm sure
this sounds nuts and the answer is probably straight forward.

If you like RPG style games, DungeonMaster, Amberstar & Ambermoon.

If you are die hard RPG fan (like me) perhaps Eye of the Beholder 1-3, Captive, Liberation, Bloodwych.

Some of my faves

Typhoon Thompson
Datastorm
The Sentinel
Super Gridrunner
Wicked
Hybris and its sequel Battle Squadron
Interphase
Nebulus
Stunt Car Racer
Turrican I & II
Firepower (was one of the first games for the Amiga - play it with a friend!)

The Amiga had some impressive arcade ports as well (like Rainbow Islands, New Zealand Story, Marble Madness, Silkworm and Arkanoid I & II) but since you can play those in MAME now, what's the point. Unless you have a real Amiga of course.

SWOS! This game could take over your life.

Also any pinball game published by 21st Century (except the dreadful Pinball Mania).
