    Sooooo good. Loved that computer. Many fun hours and the graphics still look great! Still can't beat your first love though which in my case is the ZX Spectrum.

    Definitely one of gamings finest hours. The cbm Amiga 500 in 1991/2 had so many quality games that had originality in spades. One of the best years of gaming for me along with the legendary 1987,1983 and 1980.

    Grew up with the A500 and still play some of the games today (Wings, IT came from the Desert, Walker, Shadow of the Beast trilogy), simple a phenomenal machine. Also found it crazy to watch that trailer and say i played/owned 90% of the games shown in it :nerd:

    Most of my childhood was with an A500, then I saved up for the 600 and some CD and HDD addons, even managed to get online with the A600 on bulletin boards lol

    I started off with the Commodore 64, had hundreds of games for that :D

    Then got the A500, then from that i got the Amiga 1200, had the 6830 accelerator for it, and the CD drive eventually, had one of those CD32 consoles as well, the memories! :D

    Gonna have to watch that! I used to run a nice A1200 system back in the day, upgraded with a huge 500mb HD, a Blizzard 1220/4 expansion board with 4mb fast ram, a VGA monitor and a 33.6k dial up modem!

    I went to dig it out the loft a couple of years back only to discover that the damn internal battery had leaked all over the place and killed the board :( sad times.

    cant wait until this is released. The Amiga still is the the best computer i have owned for the simple fact that as a computer it was so far ahead of its time.
    Had an A500, and still have my A1200 with 68030 card and 8Meg ram and ~100Meg harddrive, just need a modulator for it as its busted and i threw out my old 14" multisync monitor as it was a big big lol

    Yep very good sound onboard and great video processing power too. Heck just look at some video's of games that were on PC and Amiga at the time, the PC versions are god dam awful in comparison.

    Amiga 500 was certainly a nice upgrade after C64. Originally we planned to get a C128 as the upgrade, but a shopkeeper fortunately told us that would be sheer madness and Amiga was the way to go. Those were good times.

    They could have covered this in the first documentary, it never went straight from 8bit to consoles as it seems to portray!

    I still have my Amiga 1000. It was a great machine for its time and it is too bad Commodore abandoned it to concentrate on an already congested PC compatible market. The fools.

    I kept my 48KB Sinclair ZX Spectrum and ZX printer, too.

    But honestly, gaming has never been better than it is today, especially now that one can bring to life one's own creation. BWAAHAHAHA...
