It really is so different these days as opposed to the old days.
Now it's all but the PC market and a handful of consoles to choose from.
Back then the market was flooded with all sorts of cool gear and the consumer had a wide choice for hardware
Games were more playable (some may disagree with that
) and the whole Amiga scene just felt 'special' to me.
When I buy a component for a PC now it just doesn't fill me with joy or anything. Same when I install a PC in a school. Yippee another PeeCee with IE7 on
:fires up Amiga before I hang myself
