Amiga Games that were most fun

Which Amiga games were the most fun to play ?
Let's make a Top 20 list.
For me it must be Arkanoid; I'm an Arkanoid junkie

I like these threads too

Kick Off 2
Speedball- bit obvious but it's super fun

F18- the best for just flying around and stunt flying. I also love landing in various ways ie emergency landings is great fun

Stunt Car Racer- still the best

NSP- great sense of speed and fun of course

Virus- better on mouse

Purple Saturn day(Circuit board level) so much fun

I'm pretty sure everyone's top 20 is so vastly different you cannot really distill a "most common" list from it.

But what the heck. Turrican 2, Monkey Island, Dungeon Master, Captive, Chaos Engine, Utopia, Switchblade 2 and Dune 2 were among some of the games I replayed many times. Trying new strategies, finding more secrets or just getting to that next base.

Dune 2 deserves special notice; because of the excessive disk swapping it also rates among one of my most hated games (on the Amiga) But the game was so cool I just didn't care about it. Alas, I didn't have the joy of an internal harddrive until I got a PC, at which point I played Dune 2 a million times more.

I imagine for some people, Dune 2 remains at the top of even the best of strategy games they have played- i'm not saying it is and i wouldn't know personally having played only a few games of this type. Dune 2 is bloody good though

Gravity power - 2p Vs racing
IK+ - 2p Vs Roundhouse kick
Stunt car racer - nullmodem cable goodness
Bomberman - (NTSC) 4p Vs adapter suuper goodness
Scored earth - 2p vs Angry birds 25 years ago
Supercars 2 - Homing missile.. shame about the limited scrolling area.
Pinball Dreams - Almost like going to the arcade at home

Fun for single player
Pinball dreams
Lemmings (2p was too easy to just sabotage)
F29 Retaliator
Gods
Eye of the beholder
