For old demos like RSI Megademo that hit the drive hard it's the only way to roll. The WHDload versions miss all that part of the fun.

That's actually been my experience. They appear to work great for a while then fail quite randomly. Some after a few hours, others months. I find DD floppies on the whole more reliable with the Amiga.

Front Mission 3 on the PSX is fantastic. My favourite turn based game ever.

@OP. Check out Xenonauts. An update of the original Xcom. It goes very cheap on the indie game sites.

The NES version had larger graphics (filled the screen better), music, decent sound effects. Plenty of charm and character in general. The C64 port had none of those things.

It stays fairly smooth if you run the game on an A500/600 configuration from floppy. On A1200 with WHDload it runs really poorly.
