They were never really my thing, but these are the ones I played & enjoyed:

Horace goes skiiing*
Daley Thompson's decathlon
Frank Bruno's boxing
Chequered flag

I loved the characters in the Daley and Frank games. Was never sure why Bluto managed to become a pro boxer.


*predictive text changed this to Horace goes Skiving!

My numer one would be Ping-Pong from Imagine. Incredibly playable with some great beeper tune and cool effect of cheering crowd.

I also like Geoff Capes Strong Man. Probably many people would say that it's nothing special but it's very unique somehow I found clicking on different muscles very entertaining ;)

Winter Games is also very good, with pretty graphics, especially backgrounds.

I read somewhere that F. David Thorpe (author of many great loading screens) was the author of both the loading screen and those backgrounds, not very common these days.

Me too! Back in the day I have no idea about that boring american game. Playing it I could learn most rules of it.

Great game, but for me it's always been bloody difficult to control the player.

Yep, I think I learned the rules of baseball from playing WSB.

JBS is a bit jerky & sluggish compared to say, Match Point, which is why it doesn't make my top 5, but I quite enjoyed it anyway
