As a memory refresher... http://www.mobygames.com/browse/games/a ... ist-games/

That's 749 games. :lol:

Personally I'd go for H.E.R.O. Still play this on and off. So damn addictive!

This is a REALLY difficult question for me, they made so many great games. But on this occasion I think I am going to go with the game I have been playing the most just lately - Beamrider.

I'll have to go with Pitfall! It's an obvious choice, but it was the game that really put them on the map.

How long do you reckon it'll be until someone chimes in with a CoD game? :wink:

Oh certainly Boxing. Although I still can't be sure if that protrusion is a nose or not, some decades on.

Hunter. Awesome GTA clone before GTA even existed. Besides, did any of those games let you "drive" a windsurf board?

How could that game fit on one disk is a mystery.

Right now it's a toss up between Little Computer People and Hacker. I had so much fun playing these innovative games! I'll go for Hacker. I return to that game more frequently and because I've still never completed it! Is it even possible to complete it??

Man, they were the masters of the VCS! River Raid would have to be it for me personally, nods to so many honourable mentions, especially the often overlooked Enduro- not a bad game but forgotten because of the massive library of Activision brilliance :)
