1. Batty
2. Formula 1
3. Match Day 2
4. Super Stuntman
5. Nigel Mansell’s Grand Prix

On a side note, I’m sure I remember in the Crash readers charts that Gauntlet seemed to number 1 forever, but I see here it hasn’t made anyone’s top 5!

Perhaps not the best games ever, but certainly the ones that I spent my childhood on. :)

Jetpac
Target Renegade

Two player:
Match day 2
Match point

I'm only allowed to pick 5? So unfair! :)

1. Underwurlde
2. Chaos
3. Skooldaze
4. Lords of Midnight
5. Gunship

But that leaves out Elite, Starquake, Match Point, etc, etc, etc...
