I'm relative new to INTV, so my game exp is not as broad as folks that had one in the 80's, but I have enjoyed and appec what I have been able to play (love the podcast!)

 

Chip Shot Super Pro Golf - By far the most played INTV game for me
Nightstalker (or Thunder Castle) - Thunder has better sound/graphics, but I keep playing Night more
Shark! Shark! - Can play for hours, it's like meditation.
Bump'n'Jump - Might be a little slow, but it's all there.
Lock'n'Chase - Pac-man can go home, give me Lupin any day of the week.
Burgertime - There is a reason they made this a pack-in. Might not be my fav arcade game, but this port does it all well.
Astrosmash - I'm more of an action game person, so this fits the bill. Similar to Shark!Shark! where I can play and enjoy for a long time.
Auto Racing or Motocross or Stadium Mud Buggies - These all seem close in appearance and game play, just depends on my mood when I want to race. I really love the perspective they have.
Tron Deadly Discs - I recently was introduced to Discs, so it's currently a fav of mine. 
Thin Ice - I can't not play this without remembering Robinson and his passion for INTV.

 

You didn't ask for runners-up, but here you are anyways:
Space Hawk - Almost like Time Pilot...just no ship.
Hover Force - Technical marvel! 
Beauty & the Beast - I blame the podcast for me giving this little addictive action game a go.

Absolutely, with ya there, I’ve loved that game ever since it came out. It’s short, but always such a blast. The new homebrew that came out this year, Battlestar Gallactica Space Battle, is a dream for any Space Battle fan. Check it out if you haven’t already.

Why not do something using survey monkey? Easier to tabulate, etc.

Mostly because the Reynolds research department is poorly run. Also, because none of us thought of that. Lol. We do like the commentary and hearing from the authors.
