Whole heartedly agree there, the amiga era gave me some of the best gaming experiences I have ever had. In many ways I miss the Amiga, it was a sad day when I turned my Amiga A1200 off for the last time and turned my Pentium 1 PC for the first time.

Knowing what I know now it was inevitable that the Amiga was never destined to last forever, it would never have kept up with the PC interms of power or user base. It was a wild ride whilst it lasted and I consider myself lucky to have been there to experience it. I miss the Blitter, Fat Agnus, Paula, Denise and of course H.A.M (Hold and Modify).
