In my case, and I can imagine it goes for a lot of people, I just was completely gaming addict wanting to play the awesomest games of the moment. I was very young and the Doom effect also caught me so I traded my 500 and 1200 in for a 486. I couldn't affort buying a pc while keeping my amiga which I would've loved. So yeah, I 'ditched' my amiga to play those awesome looking pc games. A while ago I bought a complete A500 set up which i'll never sell again ever as I'm not a poor dude anymore

I can imagine it went like this for other people as well, in my vicinity it did although my best friend just kept his amiga and got a pc from his parents, the lucky bastard as we used to call him.
