If you do play Evil's Doom be sure to either use an emulator or some for of flicker fixing as it runs in interlace mode and I still remember the headache I got from it back in the day...

Do like that game a lot though, it's so atmospheric. Which is why I persisted even with the headache. I should look back into it. Would probably work really well in WinUAE.

or, leaving Amiga territory, one could opt for its follow up X-Com - Terror from the Deep, which can also be played on the PS1...
Not so hard to get into if you get the hang of it... Here is a link for what seems to be a legit strategy guide for both games.

I would say Civilization. That game is infinitely replayable imho.

Zelda Breath of the wild if you have a WiiU/Switch or a powerful PC to emulate WiiU. Plus if you really have that much free time, some of us have kids that don't leave us much spare time.

For PC: Chains of Satinav & Memoria - they belong together.
I was quite surprised by the depth of the storytelling.

Both original X-Com and TFTD are much better played using OpenXcom.

Been Plating F17 Challange today for a few hours, never played it in the past and found myself quite enjoying it. Been spending the last couple of days setting up a 32gb cf card for my 1200 so been adding things and testing then, got shapeshifter running and played price of persia 2, and also got networking up and running but havent really found a use for it yet as its quicker to stick stuff on a cf card and copy it acorss.

I started to play "Head over Heels" on Amiga. It's a port from Spectrum with improved graphics, also available on C64. There is also a PC port available, with more up to date graphics, but in my opinion, I prefer the older versions, because they have more charm. The PC looks IMO to "modern" for my taste.

For me it's basically the same as ever. I've been working a lot of homeoffice the last years, so it's not much different then before.

On the Amiga, if you generally like RPGs, especially " classical" ones, Ultima VI is worth a look.
I' d like to recommend Bloodnet ( preferably Aga version), if the somewhat dark and dystopian atmosphere of the game isn' t too much for you right now.
Even if the control system/ interface isn' t perfect, neither is the music; this game is quite huge and graphically good, with very intense and interesting world to discover. There is a huge amount of characters you' ll meet and the storyline is very addictive and complicated ( in a good way, imho) with many clever little things and references.
Even the manual character creation at the start of the game is quite fun.
The downsides of Bloodnet ( aga): The control system could be better. The "Cyberspace" part of the game could have been made better / more varied. Possible problems with actual game data/ files, if the WHDload version doesn t work for you ( does not on my A4000; smells like it is optimized for A1200 ..?!); you may need original version of the game/ files.
And your English must be quite good; a good dictionary recommended..

Tried so many games and couldn’t get into any of these deep games. I think it’s becuase I have a short attention span. I have always been into sports games and arcade games, something that I can pick up and play for 15 mins. So it was always going to be hard for me to enjoy the kind of games I could never get into before, even if I do have the time now. But I have found one game I am loving that I have just rediscovered...Pro Tennis Tour 2.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions.
