Thumbs up This was like Sophie’s Choice but here’s my final decision*

1) Turrican II, (I liked the first too)
2) Shadow of the Beast 2
3) Heimidall 2 (I loved the others too)
4) Speedball series (2 my favourite but I liked the first one too)
5) James Pond series (first one is my fav, bit like Bubble Bobble which is really an 8 bit game so I haven’t put it on the list)
6) The Adventures of Robin Hood (just great fun to play, written with a great sense of humour)
7) The Killing Game Show (I can still hear the music)
8) Hunter (early runner for GTA 3, freedom to go and do what you like)
9) New Zealand Story (My first game to play on my Amiga, so many happy memories)
10) Menace


Sooooo many close runners I’ve mentioned them below as they may inspire others

=11) Supercars 2, Sensible Soccer (Free demo where the ball was an grenade was the best version) Bubble Bobble series (Bubble Bobble is better than RI as it's 2 player), Xenon 2, Moonstone (with the gore on!!), Wings of Fury, Elf, Prince of Persia, Lemmings, AlienBreed Series, Lotus series (fav is 1 as it was the forerunner, but 2 was actually better). Robocop 3 Rick Dangerous 2, Nitro (3 players!!). Wings, Flash Back, Cannon Fodder, Batman the Movie (mainly for the driving game), Pinball Fantasies etc, SWIV, Dyna Blaster (5 Player mode!!!), Escape from Colditz, Bar Games, Project X, Z out, Kick off 2, Gods, Monkey Island series (2 my favourite but I liked the others), John McLean's Pool, Mega Lo Mania, IK+, First Samurai, Stunt Car racer, California Games, The Chaos Engine


This is my top ten games if I was playing individually (selfish list), may be we should have a vote for the best 2 + player games too?

Worst

The Simpsons; Bart vs the space mutants, I tried so hard to like that game!!


Keep up the good nostalgia guys …………..


*By final I mean I’ll change my mind 2 seconds after posting it

Welcome to EAB Rob!

You can't, strictly speaking, vote for entire series of games but as you specified a favourite I'll let you off

As for a separate multi-player game list, maybe one day - I think I'll need at least a year to recover from this one first

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
Depending on how obscenely long the list gets could we have a list of ALL the games and votes not just the first 100... Its a good resource sometimes to just see games that people thought were great that maybe you never played?

Maybe, the list is already over 200 games long though. Whatever happens I'll only do a proper write up of the first 100, whether I'll put all the games into just a straight list I don't know.

Thanks Graham, you're doing a great job on here.

I think a top 100 multi player games list would be very interesting to see (never seen one before). There were some great multi player games on the Amiga which were absolute rubbish if you played them individually.

The Top 100 mulitplayer game request, why? (I think I can guess why you don't like it )

Here's my list. Ask me in 5 minutes and it'll no doubt change...

1 - IK+
2 - James Pond
3 - Shadow of The Beast
4 - Turrican 2
5 - Battle Squadron
6 - Titus The Fox
7 - Beach Volley
8 - Flood
9 - Harlequin
10 - Twintris

Some of the games (Shadow of The Beast and Beach Volley) I realise aren't that playable. It's just that they hold a lot of good memories for me.

Worst Game for me has to be Exolon. The game was amazing on the Spectrum but simply terrible on the Amiga.

Would be cool for the top 100 to get HOL links for each but still nice to know ALL that were nominated

Yes, the music, the story, the dialogue... great memories. A pity about Bill Williams's fate... Check out the new Cinemaware Time FB tribute page, he will soon post some new, interesting interviews and articles.

A few days left to vote so it'd be nice to see a whole load of votes flood in now we're nearing the end of this stage
