I agree they should redo Dragon Ninja. The arcade version plays so well and the Amiga version has that weird control method.

I want to see Ghouls N Ghosts done properly

I don't think R-Type and Rainbow Islands run at 50fps. I didn't think Silkworm did either but maybe I am wrong about that. R-Type and RI are both excellent conversions though. Toki is a great example...

I have always agreed it is possible on Amiga but like I said I don't agree it's commonplace. Even that list is a very small subset of the total number of games available for the Amiga. Games like...

I said the A1200 was comparable to a Megadrive in power and by that I meant 2D power and I still stand by that. In terms of 3D games, I'm sure it would outshine the MD. But the problem is maybe the...

You're acting like I am attacking the Amiga. I'm not. I loved my Amiga. But for anyone who owned a 60Hz SNES or MD at the same time as an Amiga, the differences were obvious. Why not compare A1200...

I agree with this apart from you missed Qwak and also Battle Squadron sucks. I spend ages playing Battle Squadron to figure out why people liked it so much and I never could work out why.

Megadrive maybe the best 16 bit console for me. Like Shatterhand I love Gaires where you can steal weapons and Wings Of Wor. The sound often sound a bit too FM on a lot of MD schmups though.
