When I had my spectrum then c64 I must have had boxes of original games. I must have had about 2 or 3 blank tapes with a few pirated games on them. When it came to the amiga nearly all my games were copies, I couldn't afford them at all.
At the time I think I got £3 spending money a week so it was almost impossible for me to buy a original game at £25 each. I had to sell my c64, disc drive and about 2 boxes of original games and 2 boxes full of discs to be able to afford the £250 second hand for an amiga 500 plus.
