Hi everyone.

Mostly looking for new or not so new games to play. Despite my Nintendo roots, a few C64 and DOS gems stood out back in the day. I guess that's it.

Hello. There are lots of games to play. What are you planning to play on? emulation or a real Amiga?

And what kind of games do you enjoy the most?

Definitely emulation, the era is long gone for me.
I can be picky about quality but have diverse taste. Japanese platformers and RPGs are at the top, certain pro wrestling games too. If it's football it must be gridiron.

Have you played "The Immortal" or "Sword of Twilight"? (RPGs) I like those if it matters.
I think The Immortal was available on NES - Not sure.

EDIT: Both need a read through in the manual before playing.

I generally hate RPGs, specially JRPGs. That said, I really loved Heimdall 2 and Hired Guns.

Amiga has some pro wrestling games too, but I believe all of them suck badly

Hello and welcome.

A good start would be to check out our games competition in my signature. This would help you to discover different games and to join in a fun competitive environment too (although obviously RPGs and adventures don't tend to get a look in due to the nature of them).

Thanks for the help, a better idea what's around. Lemmings and Bubble Bobble will be just a handful of the fun ideas to see how they compare.
