This has a lot of pages so I haven’t checked them all.

Hopefully Slay the Spire and Dead Cells have already been suggested and put on the list

I imagine these have been suggested already but just in case: Outlast & Outlast II please! I’d love to hear the gang chat about these games.

All of Sid Meier's games are already on the list.

Pretty sure those are all on the list except Clayfighters, which I really can't see any of us wanting to play... But I will add it nonetheless.

Did you really think the Metal Slug series wouldn't be on the list!?

Haha not really, I thought it seemed fairly likely!

Yoku's is already on there, Gears Tactics wasn't for some reason (oversight), but it is now.

It's been on the list since launch (as are the original Elite and its sequels), however none of us has really played Elite Dangerous that much.

Amiga Classics (feel free not to to add them to the list if they're non-starters, but I would take the points if awarded):

Flood
Kid Gloves
Leander
Wizball
Apidya

How many do I get out of five?

:D

It's one that requires some serious play to get a real sense of it's essence and given its MMOish leanings so to speak, it's probably one that will require several sessions of dipping in an out over an extended period.

Would love to hear a Frontier: Elite II show at some point though.

Wizball is on there for certain. The others I'm not certain about, but I will add them.

Apidya I played a lot and managed to complete legitimately back at the time.

The rest I played but didn't finish.

Cheers. I never finished any without the pirate copy cheat modes! I would love to replay Apidya. Really enjoyed it at the time (along with some similar Gradius-derivative Team 17 shmup, Project X?) and would be keen to see how it stands up now I'm actually into the genre.

Apidya is a nice curio and this is coming from someone with a phobia of wasps. Be interesting to see it on the show. Great soundtrack too!

I'd also dispute that Peter Johnson's Amiga conversion of Wizball is a classic. The C64 original though, that's another story.

Covering Sensible Software games may be problematic however as I have seen troubling antisemitic conspiracy quotes attributed to Jon Hare.

With all the recent news about Driver becoming Watchdogs. I would love to hear episodes on Driver 1, 2, 3 and Parrallel Lines. Particularly Driv3r as I think there would be a lot to discuss on that game, not just in terms of the game itself but also the controversies surrounding the games release.
