Honestly mate, if you can concede my argument with T2 and Gods, then its obvious that you know precious little about Amiga gaming and also the time lines for which these games fall into. There is no point mentioning games like T2 or Gods when you are not even 100% accurate in your assumptions, because thats what it seems to be .. an assumption based on what you see, but not when you saw it.

I am sure there are many other examples i could point out with the other games you have mentioned, and when i find time i will respond properly. If i am going to see that you are right, then do your homework before posting, and maybe then you will be. but going on 2 games i already knew VERY well for that year and those following, it might be wise to post when you are sure.

As NLS said, many systems paled in comparison to the Amiga up until about 1994-95. Sure the SNES had some nice little hardware tricks, and the Megadrive featured more hardware sprites..etc.. but the Amiga with the right programmers could pull off almost every trick in the book. Musically and Sonically too, you will find that Amiga was king 90% of the time between 1985 - 1995, and in my honest opinion, music and sound makes a MASSIVE difference to the whole experience.

And i don't just mean, 8 bit sound or 16 bit sound, i mean well constructed and properly composed music with quality sampling, because in my opinion, most games on the SNES & Megadrive sounded like ( to give an example or comparison ) Top 40 manufactured crap with no originality or passion put into making it great, whereas the Amiga had like the underground alternative musicians that pushed the sound chip and themselves to produce something that was uniquely composed using quality equipment and samples. Graphics are only HALF the experience. The PC had some nice music in games, but that took a LONG TIME to happen!.

And yes, of course, the Amiga OS was so beautiful up against Windows 3.1 & Windows 95, and i can still remember to this day, sitting at home watching the sheep flock and lining up to get Windows 95, whilst i was sat at home on my A1200 using something that was so much further ahead at the time. And i worked with Windows 95 because i was a PC tech back then, and nothing came close the Workbench. Now of course in 2008 its a different story.

When did you first start using an Amiga anyway ?
