Some of the games are using numerical keyboard (for example: F/18 Interceptor), and probably some other flight sims, and some other games.
Maybe even some apps.

From what I've read from you, it seems that Vampire is the best choice for you. Doom would fly there.
But buying an A500 to just play Doom, or 3D games in general... what's the point?

My friend had 386/dx/40Mhz, and only 2MB RAM.
The fact that he had only 2MB and not 4MB, prevent him to play 80-90% games for the 386 (that's his words).
For me, at that time, even Amiga 500...
