Well, I made it a poll, but had to post the message before I could add a poll to it... it wouldn't let me add a poll before I posted the message .

when making a poll it's not a good idea to put your own feelings in the picture.
Then it easy could turn into a poll Do you like Ironclaw or not

DamienD: sort it out mate. Why not just tape a blind to your face so that everything in life appears in scanlines?

Well, as said above it makes the games look more like how I remember them on my A500.

...and as for the same reasons Retro specified in the other thread:

But REAL TV scanlines are the best, thats for sure. Or play it on a old 14/15" Amiga or PC Multiscan monitor.

I can only suggest you guys to connect a real amiga to a TV or old amiga monitor. It seems, a lot of you forget about the real look of the amiga machine.
