Here we go... (In no certain order)

- The Chaos Engine

-Alien Breed

-Lemmings (got it)

-Shadow of the beast (got it)

-Lazer Squad (not inovative but great for beer night vs. with friends)

-Cannon Fodder (A new one for me, I just got it off some web page, what a great game).

-Chuck Rock

Honorable mention:
-Dr.Plummet's House of Flux
-Blood Money (I own it) and almost any (*) game by Pygnosis

(*) I recall a couple of stinkers, but I'll think I'll drink one tonight for those guys. :-)

I rather liked Datastorm, could play that bugger for hours.... used to get so many enemies on  screen it would slow down......

Tes drive II was kinda fun to play as was cannon fodder.

There are too many great games that were on the Amiga to even name a top 10, let alone best ever.  Turrican II, SOTB, are great possibilities, but jeez...  How many other classics did Amiga have?  
You guys all missed :
WORMS
Indianapolis 500 (best racing sim, and catapulted Papyrus out of obscurity)
Microprose F1GP (which still has leagues today!)
Populus
Settlers (die Siedler for Germans)
Another World
Flashback
.... and the list can go on and on....

How about the ones I wasted the most time on:

Populous  (absolutly without a doubt the most addictive for me)
Altered Beast (played day after day until beaten; great 2 player action)
Barbarian
Amegas (break out clone, very well done)
Rick Dangerous (jumped outta my chair nearly everytime I got killed, and actually broke a joystick over this one!) Waaaaahhhhhhhh!  LOL!

OMG...there were so many....I cannot even remember them all!

Best multiplayer game: Dynablaster.

Make use of the 2-joystick serial port thingy and you can have 5 players (one on keyboard - usually me by choice.)

Now that is a lot of fun.   :-D

A lot of other great games have been mentioned.  Thanks for reminding me how much I used to love playing games on my Amiga.

Well that should be quite a few. Hm let me think. I should say Alien Breed series,
Chaos Engine
Legends ( sure loved that one)
Flashback
well when I think about it it would be easier to name the games I didn't like. But if I have to say one and only, I say
Hired Guns .

1. Wings
I really hope ClickBOOM gets the rights for making the Digitally Remastered version of Wings for AmigaOS 4.x, I think that would be the only game I would buy :-o
See the screenshots here: http://www.cinemaware.com/wingsremaster_main.asp?sel=screen

2. Secret of Monkey Island

3. Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge

4. Flashback: The Quest For Identity
Best regards,
Henning Nielsen Lund [Denmark]...
