I gotta tell ya...

The Amiga games are a blast! I'm using the Amiga Forever software and I just noticed that my C64 games are in the list.

No... Wait! You mean?

Yep, I can play my C64 games too. Damn, I love Commodore.

Both the C64 and the Amiga have their own games so I gotta play both.

I've never owned a C64 or an Amiga before somewhat recently, and I've just made a big (600) list of games to try out on the C64 (There's loads of doubles though, but I want to see what the difference was between a tape and a disk game, just for kicks!)

I'm having a hard time making the same sort of list for the Amiga because there's so many models! Some games only work for the CD32, some for the A1200, and some on the A500/+/600. And then, there were multiple versions of the same game, for A500, then maybe A1200, and then again for the CD32!

So, I have no choice, but to play them all

But then, that's the fun, isn't it??

Do you have a PC too, BullyDog?

No I have telepathy. That's how I'm talking to you.

Of course I have a PC. I built my own since the 386. I have an i5 system.

I have a lot of nostalgia for C64 and Amiga games; however, when going back to play those games today, they just feel a lot slower and graphically worse than I remember them.

I feel I'm spoiled by today's games and fast load times. I don't even know how I was able to manage the disk load times back in the day.

Learning how to manipulate 10-15 buttons and levers on a controller is not my idea of fun.

I like to keep it simple.

Sooooo with ya

Retro is where it's at i.e. Arcade / Amiga / SNES / blah, blah, blah...

Games these days, although graphically are absolutely amazing; they're just too complex and I loose interest fast.
