Although they are not all necessarily the best games the system has to offer; they are indeed my favourite titles based primarily on nostalgia

1) Head Over Heels
2) Fist 2
3) Cybernoid
4) Cobra
5) Garfield Winters Tale

The only game in that list I didn't play as a kid was Cybernoid but it is up there as one of the best the system has to offer, I think it was an RG article that made me check the game out actually...

Good picks. I don't usually get past the title music on Chronos, mind you.

I should also say I carefully avoid the 128K version - the in-game music is terrible and repetitive, and the alternative - the sound effects - are worse than on the 48K version.
