some years later me and my parents moved away to,lost contact with the most of my game mates and "the golden years" was,i play all the games that i and my old gaming friends played,just to keep the memories alive(i never want to lose these memories),my new friends just shake their heads and say "but for the love of good,why dont you play the never games instead of playing those old ugly games",but they just dont get it how good and important these games are for me,they didnt grow up with an amiga so they will never get it i guess.

ah well,thats my "sad" story
Amiga time, ditto

I have the same feeling with all the old school arcade games as these were also a big part of my youth / growing up...
