XCOM:The Battlescape Terror sites, Crash sites and Alien Bases were just (and still are)..amazing.Real feeling of fear and tension, espically in the early stages as your wildly outgunned by alien tech.Often imitated, never bettered.

Knight Lore.
That game just amazed me, I'd never seen anything like it before. Ant Attack had already impressed me, but the graphics of Knight Lore were something else. Just the way you could move tables around was brilliant - I was easily impressed in the 80's.
Still a superb game today, and one of the few Spectrum games I ever finished (without cheating).

That's a really difficult question. It's either UFO: Enemy Unknown, Breach II, or Head Over Heels.

Definitely Fairlight on the Speccy. I just couldn't get enough of that "3D" world, to me it was like being there. It was so atmospheric, and all the objects handled realistically. I still play it today, and get just as far as I always used to. But I still love it.

Sonic 3D on the Megadrive, Not the best Sonic game by far, but the visuals kept me playing.

Quazatron - Just a fun game if a little hard for crap gamer like myself.

2nd best - Great Escape brilliantly executed (Pun intended), you could almost be Steve McQueen for a day. Although playing it with a Baseball glove proved a little awkward.

Wizardry by The Edge on the C64, fiendishly difficult, massively atmospheric and each enemy had its own piece of music which made it terrifying when you entered certain rooms and you knew what you would be up against before you saw it then frantically trying to choose the right spell. Otherwise my vote goes to Panther, also on the C64, an incredible game considering it was a budget title with a classic soundtrack.
