I'd like to add...
11-a-Side Soccer by Code Masters
2088 by Zeppelin Games

Although I won't be voting for them. Clearly, the winner, if we're all sane, has to be Mastertronic's 180. That is gaming perfection for me, one of the greatest budget games ever made.

720° would be my second choice.

Big thanks to everyone who has taken over the running of this poll in my absence BTW.

British people and darts. A mystery.

I'm going for 1942 probably.

IIRC, the intro tune in 128k mode was cool. And a great game.

20 tons, a simple but addictive Boulderdash type game.

3D Seiddab Attack an obvious missing classic there?

I'd also add 3D Painter to the list. It wouldn't win in a million years, but it was one of the games I got with my 16K Speccy so I have a soft spot for it. :)

180 is the obvious standout for me here - best darts game ever!
