Going by games I bought.  I only bought stuff that I came back to for more often enough to justify cash**, sort of like ShareWare, only not so moral?

And, since the question asked for my favourite of all time, I'll start with that, then in no order particular:

Hired Guns
Syndicate*
Super Skidmarks 2
The Settlers
WizKid
SWIV
Frontier: Elite II*
Sensible Soccer


I never managed to beat the high-score for Wizeroids to win the game.  I never got it working on my A1200, mind.  And did you see WizKid's birthday?

Sensible are my kind of wierd.

If I were able to spend money on games, I'd buy Payback, anything that might give Hyperion some cash and a whole heap of ClickBoom games I missed out on, including Napalm, which I was unable to back-order for some reason on their end, and never had the money again, and T-Zero.

*I tried to mention only Amiga originals (ie, released on Amiga at the same or better quality as any other platform it was released on, at the same release time or earlier) where possible.

**Other people have or may mention the other games I liked, but no cash, no claim.  :-P

Did anyone ever see Hired Guns 2 on the PC?  Did the story-line progress, or was the idea wrecked?

Hey what a good idea for a poll! :
What is your favourite Amiga game?

(judging by what's gone before, although not doing an accurate count, the options would be something like:
1. Settlers
2. Superfrog
3. Alien Breed (any flavour)
4. Speedball II
5. Turrican II
6. What's an Amiga?

I like Amigas

So far I'd have to say:

Awesome
Shadow of the Beast
Shufflepuck Cafe
Blood Money

I have a TON of Amiga games to work my way through before I decide if there's any I like better!  Project-X is awesome, but the difficulty is INSANE!

and me thought "core-wars" would have been the most popular ......
1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.
5. Start working on it while giving out hillarious progress-reports.
6. Deny that you have ever announced it
7. Blame someone else

My personal favorite Amiga game of all time is Sidewinder, the top-scrolling, action-packed shooter for the OCS Amigas.  My second favorite Amiga game of all time is Gods, the really cool platform game also for the OCS Amigas.  My favorite game of all time on any and all computers is Doom 2 for the PC (hence the name- DoomMaster).     :-D

Most of the Cinemaware classics...

Like Defender of the Crown, TV Sports, It came from the Desert and Antheads.

Turrican 1+2, Rainbow Islands, Superfrog, Alienbreed and NewZealand Story.

Marble Madness and Back to the Future 2.

Oh yeah... Sim City on the Amiga was devine too.

Hi,

My favorite game was arctic fox by electronic arts, but this soon faded away since commodore went to the operating system 1.2 and electronic farts game would no longer play on the updated os.  I will say it again copy protection killed the Amiga since some programs would not load with os upgrades and certianly copy protected programs could not be run on hard drives.

So to Electronic farts and every other software maker who used copy protection I now salute you with the fickle finger of faith and say I will never buy another one of your games especially if they are for a PC cloner.

I have no idea what your talking about, so here is a doggy with a small pancake on his head.

MorphOS is a MAC done a little better
