Player, Collector or Both

Are you an Amiga Player, Collector or Both. I am both. Thought it would be cool if a programmer could create a little program on this thread that display's a bar chart between option's a, b and c. Thanks

a) Player
b) Collector
c) Both

You can attach a poll when you start the thread which would do exactly that. Guess I have to do that now.

None. I'm a bit of a collector, but that sounds like having them in their boxes and so. Nope, what I like more is to improve hardware and software with programs. Other than that I use them for music, internet and some game from time to time.

Thanks for doing that. It will be an interesting chart. By the way I just saw a PC New/Sealed Boxed version of Commander Keen: Aliens Ate My Babysitter on eBay selling for over 300. What loon would pay that amount, would have to be an Apogee/ID Software fanatic

I was a player for years on winuae, but since dusting off my a1200 i have added x2 a500 to my collection one for usb gaming, and one for floppy use for a bit of old skool. And now looking to buy games on disk to collect, even though i have them on whdload and adf on usb, where is the logic eh! Just dont tell the wife.
So i voted for both
Really enjoying the old hardware.

Cheers
Rich

Yeah collecting games get's addictive at one point I had over 250 boxed games and 350 un-boxed games, yes this is just for Amiga and yes this games not number of disks lol!

I sold about half the boxed games earlier this year but I still have all un-boxed but I'm going to sort through those soon and make a list of keepers...

All in all I must have well over 1000 games across my console/computer collection

Maybe one day I'll count them all
