Amiga vs. PC games comparison vid, whee :p

Here's the video I made where I show the Amiga and PC versions of a few games. Not very many, couldn't fit a lot into a 10 minute video since I wanted to to give a good impression of each version.

Good video, I might actually prefer the PC version of Stunt Car Racer if the colors weren't so retarted, it's much smoother.

Wow, you stuck this together already?

Nice work! I like it. Bet someone starts to take the comparisons out of context though and bashes the Amiga!

You tried the WHDLoad version, with a few extra parameters?

The turbo mode code removes two delays and speeds up the game on most systems. If you use the turbo mode in conjunction with the CACHE tooltype, you will be in for a very fast race! If you also add the NTSC tooltype on PAL machines, you will get an even faster game!

I made sure to include some decent ports so people can't complain I'm *too* biased..

Gods and Lotus 3 are decent ports anyway

Yeah, it just speeds up the whole game so it will be unplayable. The PC version keeps the gameplay intact and just has higher FPS.

It's exactly what laffer's video shows, this version looks indeed smoother. Will try it with DOSBox.

Laffer, your video is lame.
Why don't you show how Amiga games compare to non FUCKING CGA and EGA versions of PC games.
If you wanted to be fair, try some VGA comparisions. I'd think Retro Nerd's Amiga/Atari ST video is much better.

By the way I think Amiga gaming is the best ever. I am pointing out a wicked flaw in your video.

Early games didn't have VGA versions, so its a valid comparison. And for the record, there are some VGA games in the video.

It was heavily weighted to CGA-EGA.
If it was valid, it would have been named "Early Amiga games vs Early pre-VGA PC Games"
