    The Pinball Fantasies games would make excellent PSN arcade games.

    The SixAxis would actually be useful with the should buttons used to control the paddles, the right analog stick used to pull back and release the ball, and the motion sensing of the controller used to "nudge" the table.

    I can't believe Sony have a bowling game, but no pinball games for the PS3.

    Was at a mates house this weekend, where he showed me his A1200 hooked up to a 46" Sony. He had a PCMCIA-card in the Amiga with around 150 games on it. Superfrog, Soccer Kid, Speedball 2, Skidmarks - t'was fucking awesome, and the graphics actually looked pretty good.

    My A1200 is looking like it might make a massive comeback very soon indeed.

    I'm getting a Commodore donated tommorow, think it is going to be a 64, hopefully though it will be an Amiga :)

    Question is though, other than eBay where am I going to get joysticks and the games from now!!!

    A little known or oft-ignored platformer is Yo! Joe! and it's a fabulous game. Switchblade II is also excellent.

    Ruff'n'Tumble is probably one of the best looking games on non-AGA Amigas, along with the incredible Lionheart.

    Ambermoon is a great turn-based RPG.

    Ruff n' Tumble is indeed a great looking game, I'd love to get my hands on some of its spritesheets!

    Was playing Dogs of War last night by elite. Still great by todays standards, much better than Ikari Warriors and Commando on the Amiga.

    Yeah, it's a fantastic solution. Although I only use my PCMCIA card for easy transfer between PC and Amiga, and I keep all my games on my Amiga harddrive (I have around 6 gb). I have a lot more games than your friend here on it, but I have a lot of crap too - I'm just somewhat of a completionist. But yes, a lot of classics too, like those you mentioned plus the LucasArts adventure games, Sierra adventures, Alien Breed, Lionheart etc etc.

    there is/was a Ruff n Tumble remake in the making.
    dont know cause the site is down...
    http://www.indiegames.com/blog/2007/03/ruffn_tumble_teaser.html

    anyways maybe this developer who is very experienced with sprites and amiga related things could help you out.

    here is his magic pocket remake (which is in develiopment but a demo is already available)

    moreover check out his other games and read his story here

    Can these old games be found anywhere? I'd love to get my hands on a copy of something like Lords of the Rising Sun.

    I still maintain it was this game, and not Gauntlet or SWIV, that truly hooked me on co-op gameplay.

    I would say most of Psygnosis's Games, but my favourites would be:

    Shadow of the Beast II
    Awesome
    Flashback
    Cruise for a Corpse
    Turrican
    Monkey Island 2 (11 Disks)
    Pinball Fantasies
    Leisure Suit Larry III
    Cannon Fodder


    There are so many.

    The Amiga is still my favourite machine of all time...

    WinUAE is Awesome

    Flashback was a great little game, incredibly tough If I remember rightly. Fade to Black was as well ?

    I spent my entire evening last night finally getting my head around WinUAE and then living a rose-tinted dream. Everything is still as awesome as I remember it too! \o/

    Super Cars 2 officially has the greatest game music ever, although it's closely rivalled by almost every other Amiga game ever. Ah the memories.

    As with most people, I've never been a fan of load times. However, they are more than bareable here due to the fact that WinUAE actually makes the same noises the old Amiga disc drives did :)

    Sod the next generation, this is where it's at.

    It does, but only the noises from a certain model. I was excited to try the disc noise feature when it was implemented, but sadly it sounds completely different to the A500s I had. I just leave it off and turn on disk acceleration - insta-load :D

    It is nice when you figure out WinUAE though. Takes some fiddling and fettling to get it right, but when you do, it's a truly wonderful program.

    I've found that with some of the games, turning acceleration on to load quicker can cause an ingame crash (maybe not loaded properly) or it wont go past an intro screen (not load properly again maybe)

    It does work with most of the games though so you are talking seconds to load up and ready to play.

    The beta of Lemonade (from LemonAmiga.com) makes WinUAE far easier to use and much nicer to look at. The database is also handy for finding those old gems you'd forgotten about.

    Yeah, Lemonade is a pretty good front end. I think they've discontinued development now but the beta works well enough.

    I had (still do actually) an A600 and these are off the top of my head.

    Alien Breed '92 Special Edition
    Alien Breed 2
    SWIV
    Crazy Cars 3
    Fire & Ice (quality platformer)
    Switchblade II (equally good platformer)
    Super Skidmarks (best with the memory expansion)
    Stunt Car Racer
    Sensible Soccer
    Pinball Dreams (godlike music and 100x better than Illusions)
    Project X (also amazing music)
    Brutal Sports Football
    Zool
    Dune
    Dune II (back when Westwood were hot, better on PC though)
    Worms
    Syndicate
    Dynablaster
    Settlers
    Overdrive (good old Team17)
    First Samurai (sensational game)
    Second Samurai (not quite as sensational but amazing)
    Desert Strike
    Fury of the Furries (great platformer)
    Lemmings (superb music)
    Battle Chess (animated chess, fantastic!)
    The Chaos Engine (ridiculously good)
    Elite (too many hours spent on this one)
    Frontier: Elite II (retail box contained amazing goodies)
    Base Jumpers
    Unsensible Soccer
    Knights of the Sky (WW1 fighter pilot action)
    Body Blows
    Battle Isle (immensely fantastic strategy gaming, godlike even)
    Heimdall

    I almost want to cry at the quality of some of those games, many of them stand up alongside todays big hitters completely unsurpassed in quality.

    Thinking about most of those games reminded me of the days when games had proper difficulty levels and you actually felt rewarded if you managed to finish them. Completing Alien Breed '92, Project X, The Chaos Engine, Fire & Ice and Switchblade II was so rewarding. I seem to remember most of these games taking me far longer than 10hours to finish as well.

    Some of these titles need SFIV style remakes (as in stick to the basics and keep the original gameplay with modern features and looks).

    You completed Project X?

    Consider me thoroughly impressed! :)

    To be honest I found it easier than some of the other sideways scrolling shooters around, there was something about having maximum Plasma and maxed Missile's that felt really really good.

    I didn't see Hired Guns from DMA Designs in this thread? Four player 1st person shooter on one Amiga?!? Seminal stuff.
    Also:
    Carrier Command
    Hunter
    Midwinter
    plus so many others, glory days indeed

    Does anyone remember a game called Valhalla?

    I remember being totally entranced by the game as a yoof. The voices and characters were seriously creepy aswell.

    You just don't get those logic puzzle games anymore :(

    What someone needs to do is make a list of the best games listed here, gather them up and get them all working with WinUAE (some games can be difficult without proper configuration and testing). After that they can then release the config files (not illegal) for all of us to then use and enjoy the games without getting the old Amiga out :p
