Best game ever for the amiga 500/500+/600/1200 etc home computer, as per usual i will tot up the totals and edit the first post with the current standings every couple of days or few posts.

Feel free to vote for up to 10 games, these will be awarded points from 1-10 based on the position you enter them in, so to avoid moaning later this will apply from top to bottom, depending on the number of games listed i may include a nicer looking separate result thread later.

Obviously we will probably end up with one of these for the other consoles/computers too, argh you have been warned!! :D

Never had an Amiga but my best mate did. From what I can remember we spent endless days during school holidays playing on it. Particularly as all I had was a crappy Speccy 48k!

Can remember three of us sat round a tiny screen. 2 with a joystick and one with the keyboard. Those were the days!

My faves were:
Pinball Fantasies
Super Bomberman
Speedball 2
Monkey Island 2
Battle chess


Can't remember anymore, but will edit this post with more if other people's posts jog my memory.

5) Pinball Fantasies/Dreams
These are two separate games so i have took the liberty of awarding 3 points each instead of 6 points for either.

Super Bomberman
This wasn't released on the amiga, the only official version was called dynablaster i think and so i have entered that name instead. There were loads of pd versions released though, i loved masterblaster myself so if it was one of those please post it and i'll amend the list.

With the votes for amiga pinball games and especially the digital illusion classics dominating the table, i thought i'd include the youtube links, so people who maybe never owned an amiga can see what all the fuss was about, still the best group of video pinball games ever made imo with probably some of the best intro music ever to go along with it.

From top left Pinball dreams, pinball fantasies, pinball illusions and slamtilt.

YouTube - Amiga Longplay [480] Pinball Dreams YouTube - Amiga Longplay [481] Pinball Fantasies

Can I ask what game 3D Stunt Car is? I'm guessing that it's Stunt Car Racer, but it has a separate entry on the board. My apologies if there is a game of this name, but I can't think of it and a quick Google search doesn't really bring up anything suitable.

I suspect you may be right, as lemon amiga does not list it either, however they only list retail releases and it could have been a public domain game, unless of course bonzobanana can confirm the name may be incorrect in which case i'll alter the leaderboard.

I played hundreds of amiga titles and hundreds more little known amiga public domain games and had a huge collection but it doesn't ring a bell there either, i suppose it could be a pd title that i missed though.

It should be stuntcar racer, my memory isn't great for some of these game names. I'm doing my lists from memory rather than reminding myself by researching on the web.
