I agree Zetr0, I also found it a little tricky to only choose five

Here's six and sort of grouped as I couldn't cut it down anymore

... Cinemaware
... Delphine / U.S. Gold
... LucasArts / LucasFilm
... Gremlin / Magnetic Fields
... Psygnosis / DMA
... Team 17

Last I checked, Magnetic Fields & Shaun Southern developed Super Cars and Lotus, and Switchblade was developed by Core Design. Where are you getting your info?

Whoops! I didn't realize this was some sort of competition!

I'm pretty new to EAB. I recently started visiting more, due to the likes of Bioshock, making me want to go back to the good old days, when games were actually fun to play! That game bored me to tears!

Long live the Amiga! Hoorah!

You are late I guess

You can still give your vote to SensiSoft, Bitmaps or T17 in the final.

Guess I should close the thread to avoid confusion for now

If you still want it left open though SensibleFan just PM me and I'll adjust accordingly.
