I got my A1200 with HDD back around 1993 (which was a birthday present from my father) which I enjoyed a lot, and then Doom and Commodore's collapse made me dump it in favour of my first PC. My A1200...

I choose emulation because then I can, for example, run ANY Amiga...

This may be slightly OT, but I used CrossDOS for reading MS-DOS disks rather than ST ones. I was in a university computer course in the mid-1990s that, of course, focused on PCs for the coursework,...

For a long time I thought it was, I was pissed when I saw the game appear on other platforms. Mario and Sonic would NEVER let that happen to them!

That's not really fair to the Amiga, as many early Pentium PCs with insanely high VESA graphics modes ran just as slowly. Heck, my 486 DX2/66 ran Quake very much like this, a slideshow.
