Yeah, I know. But the principal still stands. To some, the Amiga is much more personal than a PC. Just like you grow an affection for old toys. Therefore, it's not possible to emulate it, because it feels like it has a soul that you've grown attached to.

It's also possible to compare it to the software you run on it. Some of the really old games still grabs the interest of young gamers, even today. Why is that? Is it because of a certain charm perhaps? Is it because games today are worse? I don't think that's it. The reason I keep my amiga is because I just hate emulation. I can't get the right feel from the emulators, so I'd rather use the original hardware. I know that Street Fighter 2 is much better on the SNES, but since I don't have an affection for the SNES and I only have a SNES emulator, I stick to the Amiga version 'cause it gives me the correct feel. Strange, but that's how it is.
