Have I missed something? What did Retrogamer say to me? It's blanked out.
I had (well still have) a Commodore too, because it was what my parents went out and bought when my brother and I decided we wanted a computer for Christmas. As with everyone's parents at the time, the idea was that they would also use it for household accounts and not have to spend too much money on it. Therefore, we didn't get the Commodore 64 everyone else had, but the Commodore Plus/4 which nobody had.
Being different makes you think you are special. I bet everyone had wars with their friends about whose computer was the best. That said, the 64 people had much better games because they had 64k and we only had 16k! We had to copy games from our friends who had Commodore 16s, but hey the Plus/4 was better than the 16!
Love my little 20 year old Commodore.
We got an Atari because my friend had one and I got addicted to playing the Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy, so my parents got me one. Yay! I'm sure if I had got an Amiga, I would have loved it too, being a Commodore person previously. But thats the way the cookie crumbles, so now the wars we had with our friends were about Atari being better than Amiga. Thats not to say that Atari was any better or worse than Amiga... it was just something you did when you were that age. I'm sure the Xbox and PS2 people have the same wars now. If you have a load of money you can go out and buy ALL the consoles, then you won't have to choose! But if you had to rely on your parents to give you money, then you only had one computer or console and you had to be loyal to it, didn't you?
I hope I have explained my viewpoint a bit more clearly this time. And finally I would just like to extend a hand of friendship to all Amiga owners out there, and reinforce the point that Atari roolz Amiga droolz nana nana naaaaaaaa
