Probably playing Simon the Sorcerer on CD32. I'd never really heard real human voices coming from my computer and this was pre-playstation for me so it was pretty amazing. I also loved the artwork and the music. I also remember playing Mortal Kombat in my room on my A600 - and like all kids using an Amiga 'Say'.

Later on in life, using AmigaOS (a 68k OS) on WinUAE - I'm absolutely amazed at the things it can still do!! I use it to code HTML and surf the web with IBrowse. It may not be real hardware but it's emulated hardware - the technology was ahead of it's time.

That was indeed pretty mindblowing. But I was too young to be allowed to say shit.

Definitely the music from the Lotus II intro on my stereo speakers connected through radio amplifier (first when I heard the loud sound to Magnetic Fields logo then Lotus theme). It was my first game on my A500 in 1992

Ear blowing is not the same as mind blowing

Bastards. I need someone from the dev team to confirm that they made that sound sample really unbalanced in volume on purpose.

I've never been able to fathom why so many media creators (amateur and professional of all kinds) either don't understand the audio limiting/compression/normalisation process or don't think it matters.

I have to make my own arrangements to regulate audio output on the fly to save my eardrums/sanity.

I remember the intro and seeing the 3D tunnel parts of Interphase blowing my mind, filled polygons! That was from an Amiga Format cover disk my friend had.

But the main one I remember from my early Amiga days was the Intro to Another World. The sounds, graphics and atmosphere is created and it just thrust you straight into the game from the intro, simply brilliant.

Another would be Damocles, a whole solar system to explore!

I remember that, I had an Amiga Format with a coverdisk that had a fix for said Interphase game on it The first patch I ever saw. I just didn't have the game itself :/

Yeah, Amiga Format 20. http://amr.abime.net/coverdisk_index_4
