Child of the 80s: We Heart Amiga - IGN

For all of you Amiga lovers out there.

"Those of us born in the 80s started turning 30 this year. Take a moment to reflect on that.

For many, this means more than two decades of entertainment at the helm of various gaming systems from the time we were old enough to hold joysticks, use control pads, or mash keys. Until now, where we are sometimes sober enough to hold joysticks, use control pads, or mash keys.

Each console or gaming system owned over those years had its own - often significant - impact on us, so it's time to take a fond look back at a few of them.

Rather than analysing each system with the wisdom of age, we thought it might be more fun to think about how we felt about each system at the time and channel our younger selves in the form of a letter. A little silly? Definitely. But we're sure you can all relate.

So. First stop. The Amiga 500."

Re: Child of the 80s: We Heart Amiga - IGN

The first time I saw the Amiga was at my Uncle's house when I was about 12. I was blown away by the graphics and sound effects and by the port of Dragon's lair it had which was the best I had seen to that date.

I had to get my own and finally one day I did. Many great memories with that PC. Was definitely way ahead of it's time.

Re: Child of the 80s: We Heart Amiga - IGN

My first time was at my buddy's next door neigbours house, his name was Raffi, heh.
I think we played Zach Mcracken, I was blown away when we selected "use > toilet" and Zak said "I'd need a little privacy for that" and the camera panned left while he used it, It was epic.

Re: Child of the 80s: We Heart Amiga - IGN

I just saw this thread. +1 Seahawk. This brings back the memories. I loved our old Amiga. It was in a class all of its own. I miss it.

Damn that was some deja vu. Besides the name raffi and it being next door I think that same situation happened to me. I'm not 100% it was even Amiga but that story sounded so familiar.
