Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - The platformer.  It came with the A500 set that I bought.  It wasn't the best game I ever played on the Amiga but it showed off some nice graphics and sound.  It blew me away after the diet of C64 and Atari 2600 that I had been fed on until then! :-P

I think mine was Millenium 2.2 (spelling incorrect on the game, not by me) and the next was a tank game, 2 player, wait, it is coming to me . . . . Fire Power, that was it. Another that my son liked to play was Rampage, but I did not play it much.  Millenium 2.2, any of the SSI D&D games and then much later UFO Enemy Unknown absorbed vast quantities of time that should have been devoted to sleep.  I have often wanted to start coding a clone of Millenium 2.2 that would allow some random changes so the game would be different each time you played it, but have not made the time to start it yet.  This was in 1987 when I first got a used A1000.  The next few years were great learning about computing on my Amiga, expanding it and then lusting after an A2000 with lots of expansions and software.

Now I think the count is near 20 Amigas and I am working on a couple of them today.

A1000 x2 (1 w/Spirit 1.5mb RAM expansion & internal HD)
A500 x2 (1 w/GVP A530, 1 w/Supra HD)
A2000 x2 (1 w/68060 & NewTek Video Toaster/Flyer & 2mb Chip)
A3000D x3 (2 w/68040 Warp Engine and VLAB-Motion)
A4000D x3 (2 in tower conversions w/VT/Flyer & CSPPC)
A4000T x1 (w/NewTek VT/Flyer w/GVP 68060)
CDTV x2
CD32 x2 (1 w/SX-1 expansion) (1 new in box, mint)
A1200 x2 (1 w/68060 & SCSI & USB)
A600 x1

Yep, that's 20.  I would like to trade one or two for an A3000T just to round out my collection.

Hundreds of boxed software titles and I don't know how many back-up floppies.  Just kept buying (on eBay mostly) year after year and have tons of accessories to go with this massive collection.  One of my next goals is to network 4 to 7 of the faster Amigas together and experiment with NewTek's Screamer Net for rendering LightWave scenes.  I think I have about 5 or 6 68060s and a couple 68040's and 2 68030s.

Blah, Blah, Blah.  Sorry for the running on at the keyboard.  I am sort of out of it at the moment (vicodin & soma for back pain, but the good news is that surgery is finally happening on December 11 after waiting and fighting insurance for 16 years. Wish me luck!)

It was either Outrun, Hybris, or Road Raider, on an A500 on Christmas day, 1988.  Amazing times :)

I bought an A500 pack that included AMC+After the war+Budokan

The first one I tried was After the war. Not exactly a good game but as I was used to c64 the graphics were impressive.

Later I tried AMC (Astro Marine Corps), it had great music.

Budokan was the last one. Learning all the special movements was entertaining.

Battle Chess at a mate's house sometime in 1988. Ah, the fun of losing on purpose just to see the animations (after swapping the disk endlessly).

First Amiga game I owned was probably Xenon.

After my A2000 was delivered, I found a local shop that stocked Amiga games and bought Defender of the Crown and Marble Madness.  I can't remember which one I played first.   :-D
A2000, A3000, 2 x A1200T, A1200, A4000Tower & Mediator, CD32, VIC-20, C64, C128, C128D, PET 8032, Minimig & ARM, C-One, FPGA Arcade... and AmigaOne X1000.

Is that the same as a 'render farm' in that each machine passes completed frames down the serial port?

How would this work, is there some sort of special cable or hub?

Well done for owning a CD32 too...

:-D

The first game I played was Oscar - the speech samples, music and graphics were so crystal clear and vibrant.

Next games I played were Dennis and the demos of XP8 and Syndicate (from an Amiga Format cover disk).

I still remember that first shot with the gauss gun... quite graphic!

EDIT:
Thinking about it I played North & South, Zool and saw First Samurai years previously. But I didn't own them!

The first game I played on my own Amiga was Wingcommander and I played it on a bare A600. I even bought the game before I had the A600, as it was reduced in price from 60 DM to 30 DM. I actually finished Wingcommander on this A600 but with a ChipRAM expansion and a secondary floppy drive. I was years later on an A1200 with a Blizzard1230 that I found out how this game should feel and it was a whole new experiance.
Not really interesting, but it`s there.

Going back twenty years...

I think the first amiga game I played was either Dark Castle or Arkanoid on my friend's stepdad's A500.

When I bought my own A500, Dark Castle was the first game I bought :-D

Mine was Firepower! at a friend's house - I thought it was the coolest knowing that he was playing against someone over the modem across town. We must have played that game until dawn.

I think it was 1988-89, I played AF Coverdisk 1 (New Zealand Story Demo) and AF Coverdisk 3 (Xenon 2 Demo).  I'm sure I played others, but these stand out clearly in my memory.

Like many others, Indiana Jones, Kick Off and Interceptor were the first games owner (and thus played to death).  Indiana had lots of loading problems (didn't always work).

Made the mistake of lending Kick Off to a friend (almost never got it back).
