Put a list in the op. Remember this rule.
Each member can only name 1 game at a time, if you put more than one game in a post then none of those games get listed.
Because it's important. People can post again but only one game at a time, this is so everyone gets to name a game they think should go on there.
People who posted 2 games in one post, go back and edit your posts.

Micro Machines Turbo Tournament 96 (MD)

I'd previously played the MS version of the original to death, and thought I was over the concept until I picked this up. Just pure fun.

This was left out of the list for some reason. Should be at number 9 between Castle of Illusion and Another World.

I feared the list would be too nintendo heavy, so I nipped it in the bud :lol:

Or basically missed it when I flicked through.

The gameplay here is good most of the time, but the game really deserves to be on the list because I don't think anybody thought the humble Megadrive could pull off graphics like that!

Following this post, I have edited my first post and removed TI Invaders in favour of the excellent Parsec.

We should mention the great 'Rainbow Islands'. The ST and Amiga versions were superbly done.

I would also add 'Cannon Fodder' from Sensible Software. Remember that 'war has never been so much fun!'.

Given that some people on here actually quite like Pit Fighter perhaps some sort of trading system needs introducing. For instance, for every game someone likes that you don't approve of we should remove 'crap' games that you do approve of.

Great call. More so the superior Atari ST version.
