I found Stunt Car Racer more faster & playable than the Amiga when I was playing at Play Blackpool last weekend!

Most 3D games are better on the ST due to the faster CPU and the way the screen is set-up.

What's a bit depressing is the ST can do the same parallax layering tricks as the Amiga (although in fewer colours) again because the screen layout is in bitplanes, but hardly anyone ever did, except in demos.

1. The Secret Of Monkey Island
2. Grav
3. IK+
4. Archer McCleans Pool/Jimmy Whites Snooker (I just can't choose between these, is it cheating if I include them as one entry?)
5. Nitro
6. Vroom
7. Turrican 2
8. Llamatron
9. No Second Prize
10. Panzer Kick Boxing

Man, that was tough to do... There are so many games that I love that I've had to leave out and a some of my favourite games were just a bit better on other systems which has resulted in a couple of (arguably unfair) omissions.
