Well here's my opinions:

Best scrolling: Kid Chaos/Zool 1
Best pre-rendered graphics: Super Stardust/XP8
Best FMV: Microcosm/Alien Breed:Tower Assault
Best lighting: Genetic Species/OnEscapee

Best platform game graphics: Oscar/Superfrog
Best RTS graphics: Napalm/Exodus
Best FPS graphics: Quake 1/Alien Breed 3D2:TKG
Best fighting game graphics: Shadow Fighter/Body Blows:Galactic

Best 3D graphics: Heretic II/WipeOut 2097
Best 2D graphics: Myst/Monkey Island

Best explosions: Payback/Napalm
Best flight-sim graphics: TFX/Lambda

*Thinks a bit*

T-Zero, no question has superlative graphics.
Super Stardust had mouthwateringly good tunnels (better than Microcosm, too).
Darkseed had decent graphics too, but they were in hi-res so ironically made your head hurt, exactly like the game character.

I suppose I have to mention Alien Breed 3D II somewhere here, as well. Nemac iV had excellet explosions, but I didn't like the game at all. Same for Skeleton Krew.

Harlequin had evocative enemy sprites...

Ruff 'n Tumble just looks totally slick. Everything about that game just oozes fun.

Dizzy had eye-catching cartoon ones, too.

For overall beauty, I would choose between Ruff n' Tumble and T-Zero, particularly when there's a lot going on. If you want to check on which games had good graphics (if not the minor issue of any gameplay), look to Amiga Action and see the games which scored more than 90%. 92% for Rise of the Robots? Get outta here...

I never tried T-Zero, that was a ClickBOOM 2D shoot 'em up right?

They were an excellent company I don't know what they are doing now.
Imagine how courageous you have to be to convert WipEout 2097 to
Amiga, haha... can you imagine the conversation to Psygnosis?

ClickBOOM: "Hello, yes, I would like to convert your multi-million
selling Playstation hovercraft racer to the Amiga"

Pysgnosis: "The Amiga? Ahaha"

ClickBOOM: "We just ported Quake and we've done a Command & Conquer
killer"

Psygnosis: "Err, alright, give us your money... oh and you don't get
the Firestarter music!"

ClickBOOM: "Mmmmalright"

;-) ;-) ;-)

As for Nemac IV I seem to remember it being very interesting to start
with, big guns and robots. Wasn't there some special thing in it, like
mines or something?

I'm going to have to try this Ruff 'N Tumble game. The main character
I seem to remember had a square chin, like a small kid?

More people seem to mention Ruff 'N Tumble than my favourite: Kid
Chaos...

Also, Genetic Species is sadly overlooked - don't you remember the FMV
intro on that? Amazing! And the weapons and lighting... woo!

A lot of Point 'N Click adventures had beautiful graphics because they
were mostly static bitmaps. The real test comes when you move your
beautiful graphics around the place.

Remember Settlers (/2) the intro cartoon with a knight on a
horse and his eyes were peeping out through the helmet? Those were
wonderful graphics, if just an intro.

:-D

Er..clickboom didn't port Wipeout. That was Digitalsomething. Digital Dreams? Digital Creations? IIRC they were gonna do SpaceStation3000 after that.

Well I think ClickBOOM was the publisher or they had something to do
with it.

I wonder whoever it was though - where'd they get the money to do
that? I know it came to PC and Saturn, and then to N64 but was Amiga
the next choice?

It would be interesting to see the sales figures for WipEout 2097 on
Amiga. Quake at least supported AGA and 68k Amigas. WipEout 2097
needed a PPC and BVision minimum!

:-o

Best intro ever: the Killing Game Show.
And the intro for Birds of Prey was quite good too.
But overall, for sound and graphics, Slamtilt was the daddy.

I think Battle Squadron for SEU, it looked better than most arcade SEUs of the time.

Shadow of the Beast 1 for platformers will always spring to mind, it was seeing that on a friends Amiga in 1989 that made me buy my first Amiga. Not to mention the sound, which compared to my Atari ST of the time, seemed light years ahead of anything I'd heard before it. Beast 2 & 3 IMHO were ugly looking.
Psygnosis games always looked good, but usually played terribly. I liked Gods better than SOTB, and it looked pretty good too.

I never played a decent looking beat 'em up (IK+ was probably my favourite to play). I got Capital Punishment, but this would neither work with my expanded A1200, or WinUAE (yes, I did try using a harfile, and after entering the security code, and it being accepted, the screen would fade, the hard drive would access briefly, and that would be as far as I ever got, both in UAE and on my O40 accelerated A1200)

Driving games, probably the Lotus series, because at least back in 1989, I thought they looked cool.

It was impressive to see Quake running on my Amiga, although in reality, 2 years after having played it on my PC, it was nowhere close the performance of my PC when I first got it, and by the time I had it on the Amiga, my Quake PC was GLquake, and I'd had Quake 2 for 9 months or so. The Genetic Species demo looked good, even in AGA mode (actually, I thought it looked better on my 1084S in AGA than on my Illyama 502 via The Cybervision at 640x480 as it looked to me to be identical to 320x250, only with the clarity and size of the monitor, and lack of scanlines, didn't help the game any)

The killing game show and just about all other pshygnosis games then.   why in the hell did they get a sponsor from jelly belly?   weird marketing idea there.  maybe they were from the same family or somthing.
I used to program games for Amiga computers using AMOS pro and AREXX. amal etc..   I was about to get an article in amiga world mag for one of my games at the age of 13 or 14 when commodore went under.  Since then I put full effort into music.

I'm amazed no one mentioned Leander yet, that game has seriously nice GFX, great style and all.

I also loved Simon the Sorcerer, the backgrounds where very nice.

And Superfrog was one of the better looking platformers I've ever seen!

And ofcourse:

(Super) Stardust,
Turrican II,
Elfmania,
Aladdin
& more :lol:

Some examples of graphics that are simple, but just right:

RType I, Rodland (seriously!) IK+ and Batman the caped crusader.

Oh, and Disposable Hero of course.
