I think the following Lucas games would have been great on the A1200/A4000:

Maniac Mansion 2: Day of the Tentacle
The Dig
Full Throttle
Sam & Max Hit the Road

Ports of these games would have been more than possible on the A1200/A4000.

Very good call on PoP2!

I can't think of any other games I would've liked on the Amiga. The Amiga didn't need Commander Keen or Jazz Jackrabbit as there were loads of far superior platformers for it available. We didn't need Raptor either as it's also inferior to Battle Squadron and SWIV.
It figures only PC shareware-games come to my mind. It was a mistake to abandon my Amiga 500 for a lousy 386DX40 back in the day.

Wait...Psycho Pinball would've been a nice addition. And the Vikings-table of Pinball Illusions...

edit: and "Super Cars International"...

Would be nice to see how Al-Qadim: The Genie's Curse would look and play on the Amiga

Odyssey by D.I.D and Bullfrogs Magic Carpet

Although Odyssey with an accelerated Amiga may have been possible, i doubt whether Magic Carpet could have been done, but it would have been nice back then.

I forgot about Pinball 4000 and Pinball Wizard 2000 http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/pinball-wizard-2000 They're good and very Amiga-like, so why not?

I agree with Sam & Max, but I'm not sure if it would be 'more than possible' to port Full Throttle and The Dig. At least you would need a CD-Rom, some (4 MB+) Fast Ram and an accelerator.

A very similar thread here though it relates to any platform and not just the PC; Games that you wish were released on the Amiga.

Should probably merge threads, I'll have a think about it...

It will be a lot of disk swapping.
