Honestly, for your use, you didn't even need an accelerator. I hate it when people tell you you MUST have one in your Amiga. It all depends on use, and buying upgrades soon turns into a slippery slope where you plonk a lot of funds onto peripherals you may probably never use to their fullest.

For a lot of game activity and especially retro nostalgia, a stock system is JUST FINE. If you want to play games off HD you only need some Fast RAM, but if you get a Gotek, you don't even need the HD (and you get a larger library of games available). Also if you load from HD, again, you miss the "feeling" of days past.
In days gone past, both my A1200 and A4000/040 had hard disks, which even back then, had a few games on them (Civ, Syndicate, Frontier to name a few off the top of my head from memory), and obviously both were quicker than a stock A600 will be, hahaha.

Also, I can see myself using it, particularly when it has a faster CPU - I really miss using an Amiga, and we all know despite how good WinUAE is, it's just not the same.
