Obviously each chipset got better and if you asked me in this day and age I'd say AGA and the A1200.

However, back then when the machines were released there wasn't WHDload, hard drives were expensive and lack of games compatibility made me want my good old OCS Amiga back (after upgrading to an A500+, then A1200).

So I'll vote OCS, as that's the revolutionary chipset from where most my Amiga nostalgia days stemmed from.

It just has to be AGA. If only it arrived earlier than it did; Commodore stuck with OCS/ECS for far too long.

That would have been awesome, would that even be possible though?
They prob. would have had to release it on some kind of accelerator though.

I agree Unkown K. When the Amiga came out in 1985, nothing could compare to the OCS chip it had. The AGA machines were great and I loved mine, but by 1992 VGA had taken over the gaming world. If only Commodore had released the AAA chip....
