MIDWINTER 1 AND 2 - My favorite games on Atari for action/adventure/strategy.
ISHAR 1 and 2 - Great roleplaying games.
Marko Latvanen is a fan of...
SUPER SPRINT - I think I used to spend more money on the arcade-version than a small
country would use in their military-budget.

TIME BANDIT - This is a great game. My dad and I used to stay up for hours and play this on the ST. One of my all time fave's.
Mr. George's favourites are:
PLAYER MANAGER (and all the KICK OFF series) - Still today I prefer playing it on Steem than play Fifa 2001 !!!
RVF HONDA - Great motorbike game.
CHAMBERS OF SHAOLIN - Thalion rules.... (Music, graphics, gameplay...)
SPEEDBALL 1 - In my opinion better than the 2nd (more addictive).
Carlo Altieri recommends...
LE MANOIR DE MONTEVEILLE, RAINBOW ISLANDS, BUGGY BOY, TERRAMEX, WEIRD DREAMS.
ELITE 2 - living-in-space game.
Simon Yardley writes....
One of the best games is Martin Brownlow's Public Domain version of CHAOS, a classic from the Spectrum 48k era. This topnotch game boasts samples from Blackadder, Monty Python, Red Dwarf and others. Very amusing and addictive. To find Chaos do a Yahoo! search for "Chaos Brownlow". Another 2 games worth a mention are POWER MONGER and JIMMY WHITE'S WHIRLWIND SNOOKER.
For sheer playability you cant go wrong with VOLFIED which was brilliantly converted from the Taito coin op to the ST by Empire. This great puzzle game was the most popular disk in my ST's drive before it sadly passed away many years ago. If you prefer all out action go for TURRICAN 2 to put your trigger finger through its paces.

CHAOS STRIKES BACK - data disk for Dungeon Master, even better than the original!
TURRICAN 1 + 2 - the ultimate platform game!
INTERNATIONAL KARATE + - best fighting game ever!

GODS - Bitmap Brothers classic...."into...duh duh duh...the wonderful" Indeed!
LLAMATRON - Jeff Minter classic....shoot toilets...coke cans...and collect sheep....a classic format that spawned a million copies on every available platform (well might be stretching the point a bit....but it WAS brilliant!)
CADAVER - The Bitmap Brothers did it again in a very underrated and extremely fun graphic adventure.
SUPERCARS 2 - Just great for thirty minutes of cheap fun!
Bognese Mongoose recommends...
