    Toughy! Probably between Monkey Island 2, Sensible World of Soccer 97 (Amiga with a Megadrive Pad) and Baldurs Gate II.

    Favourite Game of all time

    Tomb Raider 1, Baldur's Gate 1 and 2, Morrowind

    IM MEEN, anyone ever heard of that one? Was my first PC game and got me hooked. I borrowed it from the library (it was supposed to be educational - you had to correct spelling and grammar to progress through the game). My young daughter corrected the paragraphs and I did the scary bits - killing the baddies! Still have fond memories of that!

    +rep, an incredible game.

    For the uninitiated:

    Hour One: the horror of one man's miserable 80s bachelor pad. Pet rats and poor cursor recognition form the basis of the puzzles.
    Hour Two: the journey of terror moves into his drab office workspace. Flirtation is performed. Emails are checked.
    The last three. Shizzle gets real. Body horror ensues and terrible acting gets...more terrible.

    I bet it wasn't the fourth Megaman. It was good but not nearly as good as the second and third ones :)

    Nothing has captured my imagination like S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Soc...I even read "A roadside picnic" after playing it - I don't usually read books for fun!

    Final Fantasy ...the first one released in the US on the Nintendo.

    This was the grandaddy of the series and pretty much all other RPGs that came to be.

    Although my original NES died about 7 yrs ago, I still play the ROM from time to time.

    Planscape Torment - probably the best RPG ever.

    Far too many favorites from Speccy/C64 days although I still play through Last Ninja on C64.

    I think some people are getting carried away and naming every game they own...

    There a quite a few, especially from different genres but the game I remember most fondly and had the most fun with is:

    Neverwinter Nights.

    But there are lots of Amiga/C64 games I could have listed here.
