I played Dune 2 on the Amiga after seeing it
on my friend's PC...I actually thought that
the PC version had better graphics (VGA compared
to OCS?), and I think it had speech through
the 16bit sound card which the Amiga
didn't have. It was an excellent Amiga
game though...kept me up many nights. The
only thing I didn't like was the inability
to select more than one unit at once...and I
didn't have a HD so it was all - about swapping
disks.

That same friend also had Doom on his 386...I
recall it as being very fun and playable, but
that was long ago I can't fully remember.

You are right, I forgot about those. I suppose there is those point and click adventures also.

Can't have been very good friends, NOT KNOWING WHAT AN AMIGA IS? I'M OUTRAGED! :-x

Your better off without the sort of friends who'll dump you for what they think is  a practical joke. DUMB-ASSES!  :-D

Don't worry dude. I've set them straight since, I'm basically professing Amiga 101, to most of my peers anyways, correcting history as set by the victors... cough*m$*cough.

And yeah... being amiga-ignorant, is no way to get on my good side.

Looks like ive embarrased them too much ,i tried to talk to them again now they bag the crap out of me about miggy and ibook ,imac.
They told me dont bother talking to them about computors untill i get a real one ( pc) so thats it for me i couldent give a rats ass about em any more .
Both my Amiga and ibook would kick there systems asses my mac friends dont have prob with Amiga and my Amiga freinds dont have prob with my macs i wonder if its just a typical pc attitude?

Dude, back in the day I had heaps of Amiga friends. I actually only had one friend who was PC only. And he was very impressed with what he saw on my A500. He used to come around for hours at a time to play games such as Pro Tennis Tour 2, GODS, RBI Baseball, Lemmings 2, WINGS and Panza Kickboxing.

Suffice to say, the dumbass, purchased the PC ports of all the above games, instead of getting an Amiga to play them in their true glory. I used to bag the crap out of him for that. He was in serious loser denial and used to say they were good enough on PC, despite the PC speaker sounds and chunky oversized sprites and lower resolutions, urrrghh!

Anyway, he later confessed that he couldn't afford an Amiga, and on 2 occassions tried to get a 2nd hand one, but unfortunately never quite got one. I guess he at least admitted his real stance on Amigas, which is more than what I could say about his friends. He was the first PC owner I knew, who actually conceded how much more advanced Amiga was at the time, despite his snobby exterior and general condesending attitude towards anything non-PC when with his Pro-PC peers.

Nowadays, many of those friends have long since departed and we have gone our seperate ways. I only keep in contact with the one guy who originally introduced me to the amiga 500 in '87. Him and his dad are still hardcore advocates of the miggy. And I love talking to them at length about the shortcomings of x86 computing, this day and age.
