Amiga Games Go Large!

Ok, I want to start a friendly competition. Not sure if there will be a great deal of interest but its worth a try...

For those of you with super-huge TVs like this 71" Full HD Plasma monster... :O

http://uk.lge.com/prodmodeldetail.do...&model=NOTHING

... it's time to show your gear. I'm afraid my plasma TV is a long way from being purchased so I can't enter this little compo. Wish I had that nice LG plasma.

So, as I am unable to play Amiga games on such a massive screen I'd like to see what I'm missing out on. Do you play real or emulated Amiga games on a huge screen? Is it a totally new Amiga gaming experience?? Who can present a photo of the largest 'Amiga' game display??

Let the competition begin!

Winner recieves plenty of Kudos and a large plasma TV*.


*TV to be donated by Bill Gates. Winner must collect from Microsoft headquaters. Just ask for Bill at the main entrance. Bill is subject to availability. Competition closes April 15th 2050.

...but really I'm not that concerned. My reason for being on EAB is not to increase / see how many posts I've made
