The Bard's Tale for pc in the old days was by far the most engrossing game i'd ever played, it was so much fun!

For the Atari 800 and 130 XE, I liked (going by company):

Lucasfilm Games (as it was known back then):
Ballblazer
Rescue on Fractalus (a game that gave many unsuspecting players heart attacks when the Jaggi popped in front of the cockpit)

Broderbund:
Choplifter
Gumball
Karateka

Infocom:
Just about anything they put out were pretty good, even if it was just text

Synapse:
Blue Max
Fort Apocalypse
Pharoah's Curse
Shamus
Shamus: Case II

Epyx:
Pitstop
Summer Games
World Karate Championship

Sierra On-Line:
Frogger (excellent translation of the arcade game)
Jawbreaker

Activision:
The Great American Cross-Country Road Race
Hacker
Pitfall II (it included an "adventurer's edition" that was exclusive to this system)

Datasoft:
Bruce Lee

First Star Software:
Boulderdash

Electronic Arts:
One on One
The Realm of Impossibility

Utopia Software
Montezuma's Revenge (the original prototype before Parker Bros. watered it down)

And too many others to list...

Gotta be CHAOS. THat game ruled. I just recently found a ROM and emulator and can now play on my PC at work.

CHAOS was a game where you where a Mage, and cast spells to kill up to 7 other mages. You could summon varius monsters, and kiiler spells.

Great game

4. Miner 2049er
5. Montezuma's Revenge

Amiga

Definitely Lotus Turbo Challenge I just loved the music on this game, and the split screen two player duals. I will PAY to get an Amiga and this game together. For those interested, if you type in TURPENTINE while the game loads, you can have unlimited time on all the stages to finish the race.
