Yeah, Buggy Boy was ace. The tunnel bit was especially impressive.

Though I stand by Last Ninja 2 being the best game on the C64, Emlyn Hughes International Soccer was also brilliant in its own way, and probably stole even more of my time. It had so much - full and editable squads, leagues and cups to be played, a huge (for the time) array of techniques...and it looked like the players gave the crowd 'the rods' as they celebrated a goal.

RoboCop 2 because it's the only one I've ever played.

Ah the C64! So many games I grew fond of when I was a young boy! The matter is a bit unfair: it's like asking to choose which is your favourite child...
So, which one? Zoids, Forbidden Forest, impossible Mission? G.I.Joe (awesome vs a friend), the Sacred Armour of Antiriad, or perhaps Donald Duck's Playground (yes, indeed)?
Ok, let's call the whole thing off and go for Shadowfire: awesome music, cool characters and 80's scifi plot - not mentioning it was an (and probably the first?) excellent icon driven tactic game.

Just one? Sophie's Choice indeed. I'm referring to the little-known C64 game-of-the-movie. It was a bit like Dragon's Lair, but with the player forced into making life or death decisions about family members at the end of every scene.

Microprose Soccer. In what other game can you play as Oman and beat Brazil using your banana power?

That's really difficult. I loved THE LAST NINJA, but was never that good at it. I was good at RALLY SPEEDWAY, though, the great-grandfather of MICRO MACHINES. I played WINTER GAMES, BUNDESLIGA MANAGER and UP'N DOWN to death and enjoyed the awesomeness of TURRICAN, WASTELAND, ULTIMA V, ARCHON and BUBBLE BOBBLE. The game of all games for me was BRUCE LEE. Simply mind-blowing!

Just a thought... since issue 89 has been published, there might not be much point in answering a thread whose purpose is to get your message into the magazine...

Indeed, I've noticed on the 360 forum they lock such threads after a certain period.
