Voted for Voyage into Uknown because it makes all the other games look great.

Went for Valhalla. Was quite a clever game BITD even though I hadn't a clue what I was doing. I think the only thing I ever did of consequence was to enter a swear word and get the "Mary is not amused" response and get my character beat up.

Never properly played many of the others in the list although, from the reviews, I was always intrigued by Vera Cruz but never got around to it.

I did try and play Vectron a couple of times but that was just bewildering. Playing it reminded of that Jasper Carrott story about him visiting an amusement arcade.

I never expected Valhalla it would lead the poll!

I never played it. I think never it's too late to try it... :D

I think V has been the crappiest letter so far?

Tim Follin's tune grabs my vote for Vectron.

I almost voted for Valhalla but went for Valkyrie 17 in the end. I love a bit of espionage.

I'm surprised not to see Video Olimpic with its Cocaina ads :mrgreen:

I voted Victory* Road.

Even though the concept has more than a touch of Renegade 3 about it, the game itself is very solid; it even adds a few features that aren't in Ikari Warriors. So even though it's a bit of a lazy cash-in, it's possibly the most polished and enjoyable games to play in this list.

Having said that, I actually want Viking Raiders or Valhalla to win. They're original and have the Spiwit of the Spectrum.

*(And remember, you don't pronounce it "Vik-Tor-Ree", it's "Veek-turrr-ihhh")

I stuck to the game that I nominated, The Very Big Cave Adventure, although I did think about registering about 15 different accounts on here just so that I could vote for Voyage Into The Unknown every time. :D

I've never played Valhalla so, based on how many votes it has, I might just give it a go.

Am trying to remember if I've actually played Viking Raiders. Not sure I have.
