From a newbie - although I haven't played any Amiga games for almost 10 years except for a 2 hour stint about three years ago, my memory of those great games is still there.

1) Cannon Fodder
2) Turrican
3) SWIV
4) Lotus Turbo Challenge II
5) Lemmings
6) Pushover
7) Shadow of the Beast
8) Uridium 2
9) Turrican 2
10) Wings

Worst game: Dragon's Lair

PS - hopefully not too far off subject - I have just discovered the Amiga emulator for the XBox 360 and wonder if any of you folks have any experience with it. Also, I probably have thousands (?) of Amiga games from way back when on 3 1/2" diskettes and am wondering how I could read them and recompress them to .adf files to use with the emulator IF I can't find the ROMs somewhere.

From what I understood from the first post, it must be a top 10 as of now.
So I had to exclude games that I loved a lot in the past/spent a lot of time on then when I now have access to "better" versions (games like The Lost Vikings (SNES), Syndicate (PC), Lemmings (DS homebrew port by MrD) etc...)

  1. Hired Guns
  2. Chaos Engine
  3. Apidya
  4. Super Stardust
  5. Speedball 2
  6. Turrican 3
  7. Turrican II
  8. Rick Dangerous II
  9. Moonstone
  10. Vroom Multi-Player

There's a much better way of playing them via emulation.

Get WinUAE
Get ClassicWB
Get a license key for WHDLoad
Download all the WHDLoad (from WHDownload) games you want.

No disks/no disk swapping, just gaming.

If you need any help create a new thread or have a search around EAB.

Nice choice of games btw.

I'm about to sign off for the night but before I do, a quick thanks to everybody who has voted, and to those who have helped plug this to get more people interested (especially Robert with his blog). And a big welcome to EAB to all the first-time posters - hope you all stick around.

There are still over six hours to go, so if you're reading this and haven't voted yet, what are you waiting for? It doesn't take long, and it would also be nice to see some more Worst Game entries too. Also, if you know people who would be interested in contributing please draw their attention to this thread while there is still time. One or two votes can dramatically shake up the standings as a lot of it is reasonably close still - especially the bottom end of the chart.

And that's that!

A bit disappointed to come home and find only one more vote has been posted but never mind - that's 69 in total.

Again thanks to everybody who took part. Now for the small matter of writing up the results It will be a while but I will, of course, let everyone know when it's ready.

Bump.

I know it's a mammoth task to make this list Graham, so no problem if this has been put on hold, but I'm certainly still interested to find out the top games, and the worst games
