Hi.
I am a 59 year old, who grew up with the Amiga. Never owned anything else. Once i got my first Amiga 500,
i was hooked. I went on to get myself an A1200, and that sealed the deal. Every magazine (that had the attached
floppy too), i bought. My favorite game in first place was, and always will be, Joe Blade. Following a close second,
was the one and only, Cannon Fodder. (bought it for the music really lol), "War has never been so much fun, war
has never been so much fun".....sorry, i was singing it lol. In third place, was Lemmings and Globdule. I couldn`t
decide which one was best. My heart sank the day i bought an Amiga magazine, and it informed me that there
would be no more. The Amiga was on it`s way out. Good to see though, that this group exists.

Welcome, jonnyenglish - thanks for joining!

Do you still have your Amigas? If so, any pics of your setup?

I must admit I've never played Joe Blade. I'll have to put that one on my list for sure. I've seen many mention it before. I'm in the midst of Ultima IV right now. I hope I am able to finish it! It's tough...

Unfortunately no. I left England for America 18 years ago, but had my belongings
at a friend`s house. Some years later, he had a house fire, which gutted everything.
I really wish i took them with me, as i am sure i would have got them working in the US.

Welcome. Try searching online for local "retrogaming" expo events. Sometimes after you walk past the tables of Nintendo vendors, you can find Amiga gear. Once that's done, you can look into the "PAL mod" to play the games you grew up with on an NTSC machine.
