Most annoying things non Amigians say

Every Amigian must have experinced someting like this at some time in life..

Me: Lemmings, you must have heard of that game surely?

Non Amiga Person: Yeah wasn't that a PS2 game?

Me: So this is what the Amiga looks like.

Non Amiga Person: Wow, is that the keyboard? Wheres the Computer?

Me: When are they going to make another Elite game, I loved Frontier, it's amazing to think games like this could be made in machines with 1MB of memory.

Non Amiga Person: Whats Elite?

I spoke about Elite the other day and a room full of 20 year olds thought I was talking about Call of Duty Elite game service

My friend is 16, he know some older games like Warcraft, Zelda, Final Fantasy but he never saw Lemmings
Most annoying thing from non Amigian - "I have better games in my phone, turn it off" when he saw Jaguar XJ220.

Yes, there seems to be a misconception that crackers are people who hack websites. Whereas we all know that the term actually refers to people who break copy protection.

When they say that the Amiga always suffered from a low amount of Ram ...and they are right.

Or when a drop in FPS is called "lag". Or when DirectX is called a "platform", etc. etc. We're in a world now where people do the tech-babble while they are still tech-ignorant. Its a hard thing to live with

I really hate it when people try dropping words in and have no idea what they are talking about.

"But Putty Squad came out on the SNES, why make so much fuss about the Amiga version....?"
