Amiga's most physical games

I have just been playing an old favorite of mine Prime Mover, I know it's not everybodys cup of tea but after 8 races in a row I feel physically exhausted and somewhat exhilarated. Games these days don't usually leave your hands shaking with fatigue after a couple of hours of play and have your adrenaline pumping, apart from some Wii games perhaps. Of course I just be getting too old for some of these games.

I'm interested in what other people consider a physical gaming experience on the Amiga. My top three are:

1. Sensible Soccer
2. Speedball 2
3. Prime Mover

My experience of Sensible Soccer was pretty intense when playing tournaments with friends, many joysticks broken, many ego's shattered, blood sweat and tears.

You played in Turbo Mode? That's pretty hardcore, the bonus stages must have been insane

Hehe, I certainly hope that the CIA team will make a longplay video of this game (and of Combat School and other such games).

I wonder where and when the idea to make joystick waggling emerged. And why some people thought it would be a good idea to do more such games....


The German accent of the narrator made me imagine the scene with Scharwzenegger playing the game, which made it even more fun.

In 2007, I had surgery on my right wrist for tendonitis that was mostly caused by ridiculous hours of Kick Off 2. I'm not sure if the game is so physically tiring or if it has to do with the way I play and the amount of hours I dedicate to it, but I thought I'd mention it.

I remember that with Amiga games it's easy to cheat if you connect mouse to joystick port. You will win all waggling games and your joystick will not be in pieces.

Wow that's pretty hardcore! The worst I ever sufferd was "Speedball Wrist".
