The Official EAB Top 100 Amiga Games 2012 - Vote

Yeah, I know, Top 100 lists and the like aren't exactly original. But then I thought (during a particularly uneventful long coach trip last Sunday) "hey, EAB doesn't have a list like this, why don't we compile one? I'll write up the results into a proper article, Amiga Power Top 100-style, only voted for by the members here rather than argued over in arbitrary fashion by the staff of a magazine?"

And besides, we all know that people's tastes can change over time. Your favourite games now might not be the ones you'd go for 15-20 years ago. Maybe those you loved when you were younger have aged badly, or perhaps you've discovered a hidden gem you didn't know about for many years.

So I thought it would be fun and potentially quite entertaining to do just that. But of course I need your help here. You know how all this voting nonsense works by now but just to cover all the bases:

Vote for your own personal top ten games ONLY and in order from 1 to 10. 1st place gets 10 points, 10th gets just the one.

No editing your votes please otherwise it will become a nightmare to keep track of it.

Any Amiga game counts, whether it's commerical, public domain or whatever.

As a bonus, you can optionally also vote for your worst game ever, too. Only one vote per member please and again I'll count these up separately.


Voting starts now and will close 23:59 UK time on October 31. No votes after this date will be counted.

After this I will compile the results, and write up a nice big article hopefully in time for Christmas to show just what EAB regards as its favourite Amiga games in 2012.

So get voting and have fun

3. Dynablaster
4. Slam Tilt
5. Speedball 2
6. Syndicate

Remember that there is a Top 100 games on the front page of Amiga Lore at http://www.abime.net:

Also, you can create your own top 100 games using the drag and drop interface: http://www.abime.net/lists/edit/list

8. James Pond 2 - Robocod

Honourable mentions: 11. Syndicate, 12.Vroom, 13. Alien Fish Finger.

Worst Game: Outrun

note: I took a look at Carver as this is supposed to be the worst game ever. Well at least that game is playable. Certainly more playable than Belial, Beverly Hills Cop, or Days of Thunder - but I'll stick with Outrun as that game was only good for the first 10 seconds while the intro music played.

'Playable' might be stressing it a bit, but I get your point I took into account the horrible audio-visual presentation, but I'd say it's best just to have everybody vote their games and not discuss it.

By the end of the month this thread will be MASSIVE! Good luck working out all those votes Graham.

I'd also be interested in WORST GAMES EVER - so remember folks you can post your top worst game too!

Don't worry, it's all in hand

We're a little over 24 hours into this and 15 votes have already come in, with 77 different games being voted for. Lots of diverse titles being voted for too which is encouraging. My biggest concern was not getting enough games and not a wide enough spread of genres but those worries look unfounded. Looking forward to doing a nice write-up of this
