    Who created the best Amiga games?

    Which of these developers/producers created the best Amiga games?

    If you think another which I haven't listed is the best then please say.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Bloody Hell, I see Firebird didn't get a mention, they only released Ian Braben's Elite, THE landmark computer game, how did you miss that one???

    Oops sorry about that.

    Firebird did release some really good titles early in the Amiga's life, such as Bubble Bobble, Elite, Rick Dangerous, The Sentinel and Virus. All firm favourites of mine for sure. Does anyone know what happened to Firebird after 1989? As that seems to be the last year they released any Amiga titles.

    I remember the Firebird logo well on a lot of 8-bit titles too, especially the BBC Micro, and the main reason they published the Amiga version of Elite, as they has a direct hand in ported it from the original BBC version with the help of Mr. Micro.

    There are a lot of Amiga developers and publishers during the history of the Amiga. I was bound to miss out some of the great names in the poll. I just tried to include the ones who are most remembered and who created and released most of the great Amiga titles. Just thinking about some of them brings back great memories.

    From what I recall, Firebird were owned by BT (British Telecom) who decided to sell it off and consolidate to their core assets. I think Microprose bought them (along with the other *bird brands) and phased the names out.

    I could never forget Ian Braben and Elite. I've probably played Elite and Frontier more than any other game so far in my lifetime. Frontier especially. While at school I was hooked on that game and would play it for many hours every night when I got home. So much so that I never studied for any of my GCSE's! I did still pass them all though!

    This poll should have been multi-choice. Favourites of mine that are listed there are Bitmap Brothers, Cinemaware, Team 17 and Psygnosis. But all of those mentioned had some great titles. I can't pick a single favourite out of those, that's just impossible.

    But that is the point of the poll. You have to decide on which one is better than the rest!

    It is hard I know. I voted for Psygnosis myself because just seeing that name brings back a lot of great titles and memories, as well as their cool logo.
