    Anyone remember 3D Monster Maze on the ZX81? Or that mole game on the ZX80?

    Or, Lemonade, I think on the Vic20.

    Oric Atmos, Sharp MZ80K....Those were the days. Not. My brother had a QL. Hehe.

    Stoppit! You're making me want more classic consoles now! I wanna be a console collector and am gonna start with the Nintendo ones cos they're my fave! I wanna get the NES, Famicom (not rare on Ebay!), SNES, Super Famicom (again, not that rare on Ebay) and an N64. Starting with an N64 cos it's my fave console, Gamecube comes second.

    My NES came with the Light Gun and had dunk hunt and Mario 1 on a Joint game pack.

    Duck hunt was excellent, although i was never rich enough to have the robot which u could buy and use with some of the games.

    My first console back in 1983 was the MB Games Vectrex which has a monitor and controller all in one. Then i got the Specturm 128 k Plus 2. what a machine that was.

    Oh the joys of the Old Skool - ;0)

    Was Frogger on the ZX81 or spectrum? That was cool. Also, remember Manic Miner, the most addictive game at the time. And the Horace series was good.

    Hungry Horace goes Ski-ing what a classic.

    I remember Frogger being on the acorn electron. But im sure it must of been on the Spectrum too.

    I would proberly say my Amiga was the best computer i ever bought i just wish now that i never sold it as i had so many quality games for that.... - (newzeland story,rainbow islands,IK+,Bombjack) the list would go on and on.

    Maybe i could pick one up on ebay......

    Have to agree on the Amiga, it was the ultimate platform of it's day, outperforming all the consoles of the time in every way!

    Plenty of forgotten classics too, New Zealand Story and Rainbow Islands (as mentioned). Zool and Cannon Fodder started life there. Harlequin is probably the best platformer of all time, the list goes on!

    The Workbench OS was great too - it had a speech programme which was fun! In fact I believe Amiga's are still used in sound engineering as they've yet to be surpassed for flexibility in that area.

    I remember Zool it was made by Gremlin and Sponsored by Chupa Chups the lolly company. It was like Sonic the hedgehog for the Amiga.

    We have an A1200 here in the office which sometimes we use(we have Zool too) but i have the A500 with the 1.3 workbench and upgraded the memory to 1meg.

    I remember the Atari STE or STFM being its competitor but the Amiga just blow it anyway.

    Dal

    The 1.3 workbench was the one to have as the 2.0 version which the added to the a500+ a600 etc etc have problems playing certain games and software but it did come with a full one meg.

    Monty Mole was the mole game!

    I remeber Codemasters's classics like CJ the Elephant and such like and buying a game for 2.99, or if it was NEW 9.99 or 10.99 oh yeah!

    Ocean rocked and US Gold sucked!

    I had an Amiga A500+ but never had problems playing any games (although it obviously got a lot slower towards the end of its life!)

    Lemmings began on the Amiga as well.

    All the Dizzy games too :clap:

    I had 2 500's and a 1000 (some sort of peculiar 286 competitor that did at least allow me to run birds of prey with some detail on). Only pre Playstation console I owned was an Atari Lynx which I liked because I'm a lefty and liked being able to play it as such. Sadly I dropped it whilst playing in the bath.........
    Would have to say that Rick Dangerous was one of the finest platformers IMHO.

    oh you have no idea :D

    The Amiga IS alive
    Divx is available for it, emulators are available for it, windows clones, etc etc
    my mate just finished uni last year using nothing but his amiga power tower, equipt with a zorro card, 64mb mem (more than enough for any amiga)PPC chipset, PPC graphics, USB keyboard and mouse, PC monitor, CDRW, DVD, HDD - the full works !!
    Im pretty sure the AmigaOS4 is due for release any day now

    take look at this demo written on amiga FOR amiga in 2002
    its 90mb but you wil be impressed
    http://skipp.ras.pl/potion/potion_-_planet_potion.avi
    remember this demo is "coded", no fancy programs like 3dsmax, just pure code !!

    the amiga is a minority now but it is alive and will stay that way for a long time
