The great thing about the Lynx is that it has a very high ratio of quality games versus junk. I think the vast majority (maybe 80%) of the Lynx games are at least 'good', if not better.

My top 10 would look something like:
KLAX, Shanghai, Blue Lightning, Paperboy, Ms. Pacman, Crystal Mines, Chip's Challenge, BattleWheels, BattleZone 2000, and Zarlor Mercenary.... but you could easily pursuade me in favour of several other games.

Iīll update with that list, then :)

Chip's Challenge is still first, with Klax close to it. Slime World, Stun Runner and Shanghai are almost tied in third place, and there's only 17 points between the first and the fifth!

I only had 5 games back in 90's that were taking most of my lynx time:

lemmings, california games, rampage, zolan mercenary & slime world. But those were the best games lunix had. I wish I had more back then. Time to change that right now. Stocking up on old games and taking my mind back to secondary school times when many pupils were buzzing on gameboy only like it was a lottery win. No one in my whole borough even seen a lynx. Few chosen ones had gamegear. I always get the latest technology and the best things.

Thank you atari for broadening and coloring my mind far more than secondary school did!

Time for a new update. Todd's Adventures in Slime World regains first place. Also, things are really heating up, with the top four games separated only by a mere 5 points. Arek, you can post your #6-10 games if you desire so.

OK, let me see...

Main criterion: TIME I´ve spent with them (which of course is proportional to "fun")

1. Lynxopoly (It´s next to perfect for repeated short sessions in breaks.)
2. Rampage (great for diversion :) )
3. Xenophobe (same)
4. Yastuna 2 (The Space Incident) [Invaders&Domino=perfect for me]
5. Steel Talons (a pretty unique game for the Lynx, mission+3D heli flying)
6. Alpine Games (Biathlon rocks!)
7. Rygar (my favourite platformer)
8. Checkered Flag (favourite racing game)
9. Ms. Pac-Man (I like how you can select the mazes)
10.Battlezone 2000 (great for diversion, hidden game is enormous!)
11.Battlewheels (highest "action per seconds" game IMO :D )
12.Warbirds (well-executed, good steering)
13.Rampart (a genius game tho the GBC version is easier)
14.Joust (best port, reviewers are really correct in this case)
15.Yastuna 1 ("Attack", more specifically; spent hours with that one)
16.Paperboy (best conversion IMO & easy enough to play for anytime)
17.Blue Lightning (was my first; showcase)
18.Hard Drivin´ (like the baby brother of the 1990 PC game Stunt Car Racing)
19.Xybots (good maze shooter, good system of weapon updates)
20.Malibu Bikini Volleyball (funny, great music, bright colours)
21.Hockey (good conversion, mind-absorbing)
22.Gauntlet (takes time but is enjoyable IMO)
23.Awesome Golf (a very good portable golf title)
24.Shanghai (more difficult than GBC Shanghai, but beautiful layout)
25.Lexis (gets you thinking under stress, hard but very rewarding)

The way I store games, I can see which ones I´ve played most recently and also most often so this is quite accurate and kind of reflects my 2011 preferences :)

I´m expecting Cybervirus which I´ve long been waiting for but as of now and for the recent past I believe this list is pretty definite as far as I am concerned :)

EDIT Thought at least a few words of comment might be appropriate; noone likes to read just lists :D

Can't believe I forgot to update this. Biggest change is that now Rygar enters the Top 5, tied with Shanghai! Battlewheels also enters top 10. First homebrew game to enter Top 25 is Lynxopoly. Finally didn't count multiplayer games because there was only one list.
