Obliterator: As this was one of the first game I saw on the Amiga and being used to C64 graphics,the look of the game blew me away.Surely the game looks now terrible outdated, but i remember drooling all over the screenshots. Good old times... :(

Leander on the Atari ST - as for once it was a genuinely classy conversion with as much care and technical trickery as they normally only gave to their Amiga titles. And a cracking action/platform game to boot. And it had hidden Lemmings!

Shadow Of The Beast. Sure, I'd fire it up, get beaten to a pulp within seconds but I dunno, it's just the atmosphere in that game.. there's nothing quite like it.

There are so many great Psygnosis games but my best has to be Bill's Tomato Game on the Amiga. It was such a simple idea but it is such a fantastic game with great graphics and very addictive.

After much deliberation, it's simply got to be street fighter 2.

Alundra on PS1 was a really good Zelda-type RPG...they published that didn't they!?

Oh, and I'm a huge fan of the original Destruction Derby on PS1.....spent hours playing that! The sequels were alright too, but I liked the straightforwardness of the first one! :)

Destruction derby - hours and hours of fun in the bowl . and looking at their releases bar a couple it was all downhill from there.

Stryx. The intro is so cool and with a bit of practise, the game ain't too bad to play either.

Destruction Derby Raw for the PS1. They didn't develop it but their name and logo is on the cover so there!
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I played Wipeout quite a bit, but it can really be a pain to get to grips with tbh, so i'd have to choose Agony on the Amiga, not into shmups all that much, but it wowed the hell out of me when i first played it on the A1200 in 2007.

Destruction Derby, Alundra & Formula 1 '97 were 3 of my favourite games on the PS1
But I'd have to say Wipeout 2097.

Brilliant at the time but even better now playing on a 50" screen with the sound turned up. Awesome!

Bit of a strange one to go for but I'll always have a soft spot for Rosco McQueen, there is just something about it that I used to like.
