My favourite non-Atari, non-Activision, non-Imagic game for the 2600 was without a doubt Empire Strikes Back:

Mightn't have pushed it much technically but it was damned fun.

Yeah that was a Great game!

 

One of those I borrowed from a friend, then played a lot BITD,  then later bought myself a boxed copy on eBay before prices went through the roof.

starpath, definitely starpath when killer satellites, which is still a solid c+ game, is by far the companies worst game they're doing something  right.  Plus party mix and the unreleased sweat are 2 of the best looking games on the console.

Parker Bros would be my first pick.

 

Empire Strikes Back and Super Cobra are 2 games that spring to mind - spent a lot of time with those  - even with the headache inducing scrolling on Super Cobra!!!!  :)

 

The other minor 3rd party game I played a lot was Cosmic Creeps by Telesys,

Dragonstomper, a RPG on VCS, like it. Also, Rabbit Transit, and Frogger

Eh, joking or not, I'd be willing to give you that one.  Eggomania and Commando Raid were good games, and I even got some enjoyment out of Space Jockey.  It's not enough to make me call U.S. Games the (third-)best third party ever, but I wouldn't bebrudge anyone for picking it based on their better titles.

 

Now if you had said Mythicon or Froggo...

I played a ton of Commando Raid and Entombed back in the day, more than some of the more popular games that I owned at the time.
