Games that defined the Amiga? Please join in ...
« on: March 27, 2008, 12:25:46 AM »
Righty, thanks for all your suggestions for my other thread Hidden Gems of the Amiga

I'm thinking of writing another article entitled 'Games That Defined the Amiga' and I'd like to hear your suggestions.

When you think of 'Amiga game' what's the first thing that pops in your head?

For me:
Shadow of the beast, Sensible Soccer, Lemmings and Pinball Dreams/Illusion/Fantasies.

How about you?

Cool! Some more good ones there. Completely forgot about Secret of Monkey Island.  :idea:

I suppose the only rule is the game had to be released on the Amiga first. So any more for any more?

Actually pretty much anything by Team17, The Bitmap Brothers or Bullfrog should really be on your list.

[EDIT]
Oh and Psygnosis, EA and Renegade, plus a couple by Ocean :-) There are so many!

Oh, and in Denmark and Germany:

Hugo the TV Troll.

When the game came out in Denmark, the sales of memory expansions for the A500 exploded, because it wouldn't run without it.

All of the above, plus "Another World" and "Flashback" of course.  :-)

Oh, and "Stunt Track Racer" of course...  

Can't forget the "Body Blows" series....

"Fighter Duel" (P51 Mustang vs. Zero) great linked fun!

"Wings" by Cinemaware...

Yeah, there's a lot.  And I'm sure I'm forgetting other obvious ones...  :-)
