Amiga article over at bhlegend

Just having a general surf and came across this little article over at bhlegend.

Amiga 500 Article

It's not that well written but it's probably the author’s second language.

I don't agree with the below statements from the article, but it's still nice to read about our beloved machine from time to time.

"There are not many classic Amiga games"

"In most cases Amiga was a computer that went with the flow. When a PC-game was released, there was always an Amiga-version available"

I certainly don't agree with those comments, either! But I may check out the link anyway.

The guy has clearly no idea on computer gaming history and the part Amiga took... and yes it is poorly written.

Nice comments Cody, never noticed the link at the bottom or I may have left the same myself.

Who is this Igor D2!!!!! Did you see how much he wrote!!! A true Amiga fan there, I think a few EAB potential posters are among those peeps. Read here:

Comments about above article

In fact, they're loads of people in the above section that would feel right at home here. Put it all down to nostalgia if you like, but everyone who's come into contact with the Amiga has a special place in their heart for this great machine.

Actually one more thing to mention is that the games Cody mentioned are just random examples, there are hundreds of games that made it only to the Amiga originally.

I prefer a quote from my own site:

Of all the games made on the Amiga, its my opinion that the Bitmaps produced the best. This is quite an achievement as the Amiga probably had more classics than any machine before or since.

Much more informed
