I guess I missed out on a lot then.
To date I have only ever played with an little 'ol A500 - my own.
I do remember playing around with an A1200 for a very short time at some Amiga show, but I can't remember which one it was. I'm sure it was running PGA European Tour Golf at that time.
That was the closest I would ever get to using an A1200.
Yup, back then, during the mid 90's at least, I was so desperate to get one of these babies. Just so I could play more games which relied on that type of machine.
What a shame then that my own family was a)
fucking tight, and b)
completely ignorant of how much I liked the Amiga and wanted to try other pieces of hardware. All we did was just buy games for the Amiga during the years of its popularity. That was it.
I actually remember having this almost-realistic dream once around that time where I actually had an A1200 in my possession, as a present, and I was playing what looked like..... Zak McKracken??!!!
And I seem to remember the background as being in a park, similarly drawn to the real locations in the game.
Well, looks like all of you on here had better luck. But then maybe you had more of a choice back then, and wasn't an 11-year old kid like me back then.
@stainy: there were two different CDTVs? Please explain.
