    Do you have any particular favourite Commodore Amiga Games or gadgets?

    Hi, thanks for commenting on my Amiga hubs. Since you are a fan of the Amiga I wondered if you have any favourite games, joysticks or whatever on the system.

    I have had a few requests from other Amiga fans for reviews of certains games on the machine. It is also great inspiration for me to hear from other Amiga enthusiasts and gives me more to write about!

    Many thanks.

    Sorry for the slow replay- I must be missing something on hubpages, I only today found your question...
    To answer, oh, yes.  My top favorite games are Elite (possibly my favorite game of all time!), Bard's Tale (I, 2, and 3, but mostly 1) and the free-ware game Battlemech by Ralph Reed.  I actually sent him money for the luxury version!
    It's funny that I found your question today.  I've just spent the last 3 days on my Amiga Emulator playing Elite from Harmless up through Average.  I think I'm close to Above Average.  I just bought my military laser, which makes those nasty Thargoids a more reasonable proposition.  You can kill them with the little baby laser that comes with your Cobra, but it takes so long, I usually get attacked by at least 2 more groups before finishing.  Without the docking computer, you just can't quit fighting long enough to get in the space station.
    Boy, those were the days.  You remember the Amiga competitions with big prize money to the victor? 
    I actually wrote an Amiga game called Sword of the Warlock... it was a Bard's Tale clone.  I still have the discs, but no Amiga, so I don't even know if the discs are any good any more.
    I'm seriously passionate about the Amiga, and always enjoy your hubs. 
    Thanks for the question, and sorry again it took me so long to answer.
