You cant beat the Amiga for Pinball games - get Pinball Illusions and Slam Tilt... both superb games.

speedball 2 - I love it...

once you get WHDload installed on your hard drive get hold of Deluxe Galaga AGA - it is an old style arcade space shooter and it is brilliant.

Chaos Engine, Flashback, Cannon fodder - all good stock favourites!

Paradroid 90 and Uridium 2 are must haves. I have been enjoying Jet Strike and Super Cars 2 today also. Wings is a must. Syndicate is great too and I really enjoy the Alien Breed games for a late night blast with the lights down and headphones on loud

I feel compelled to say that Speedball 1 shouldn't be ignored for only Speedball 2. I much prefer it to the overly complex sequel, though I do admit never giving it much chance. After playing the first so much, when I tried the sequel I was pretty much instantly put off.

As I'm being lazy, I think I'll just link to my post from the Games I cannot miss! thread. Much easier than retyping
