A little video I made just for fun. Don’t take it too seriously, I love both Amiga and PC DOS games!
Amiga wins! wow i don't know that
I had barbarian on amstrad 464 and that version was better than pc
The Pc versions are just so much better,no wonder Amiga got discontinued.Just simply can't hold a candel to the Pc.
Yep. Amiga won for a while…Though by 1993, we had Svga, 16 bit sound cards, and cd-rom on PC near enough as standardAnd the raw processing power to run DOOM on basically CPU power alone.
The problem in the end is that the PC kept changing. Try and find two identical specced models within just a year apart at some point…Technically the 'serious' amigas were upgradable to the same extent that a PC was…But somehow they never really kept up properly.
For all the massive lead the Amiga had when it launched, every year the comparison to a PC got just that bit less impressive, until finally, the Amiga was just left in the dust and pretty much forgotten about.
A pity, since seeing Amigas keep up with PC's and macs, which in the end are basically the only survivors of the home computer era would have been quite interesting.But it wasn't to be…
Nothing is as awful as the CGA graphics used in old PC games.The sad irony is CGA was capable of 16 colours and EGA is a fairly minimal improvement.The problem is, 16 colours were only possible in composite mode, and most people are only familiar with RGB mode.
This isn't surprising, because it's highly likely many of us never even owned a real CGA card, and were using backwards compatibility of an EGA, VGA or later card.But… Guess what these newer cards didn't support?… Yes… Composite mode…(technically you can also get 16 colour EGA using a low resolution mode that is actually a hack of one of the text modes. Pretty much nobody did that though. On the upside, that hack still works even using RGB)
Ahh Lost Patrol on Amiga. That game used to kick my ass.
I take it this guy likes the Amiga, every example he's used shows the Amiga version as superior.
Damn you, Commodore!
In 93 the Pc win at Amiga games whith this not move 3d games,and 95 the pcs show Svga games
Actually "Marble Madness" PC can be run in Tandy mode, which makes it look / sound a bit better. Great video, though.
Only Lotus II can compare with the Amiga version. Amiga in the first '90s kicked ass.
wow, lotus on dos looks amazing! I wonder if that's because through modern emulation, the emulated CPU has "unlimited" clock speed.
Where is Doom?
02:29 LOST PATROL…LOVE IT!
AMIGA FOR LIFEEE 🙂 AND …..DOS FOR LIFE ihihihih
Winter Games: Even the C64 version is better than the PC version.
Rick Dangerous, Fire n Ice and Worms are 3 that come to mind that the amiga owned. Plenty more though.
OK.. i will run some games on Amiga emulators instead of DOS versions on DOSbox hahhaha
VGA and Sound cards did for the Amiga. For a bit in 92ish it was the superior platform. Texture mapping did it in.We do have the Amiga crowd to thank for MOD files which will live forever. Also the demo scene. RIP Amiga.Respect.Luv and Peace.
Amiga WINS by monster KO, there's no contest at all.
Monkey Island 2 PC version vs Monkey Island 2 Amiga version.
Amiga was better only in the begining. When sounblaster and VGC cards become popular, the PC games get a lot better…
love both pc and amiga's version of body blows
Polish rhyme: "Amigowcu nie rżnij głupa, Doom nie chodzi no i dupa" "Amiga-boy don't be stupid, Doom not working, so suck", in polish language it is pretty rhyme. :oD
Where is Civilization? Amiga must have extremally konfiguration with AGA, to reach graphic compare to PC 286.
VGA standard and SoundBlaster change everything.
My biggest problem with the Amiga was, even when fitted with hard drive I still had to swap floppy's when playing most games. I did not have this problem on dos/pc at the time.
Has anyone done a price versus performance analysis? Originally the Amiga was to be a Games Console. (Commodore wanted it to be a business machine, just as they did with the C64). Guess it really depends on what you want you're hardware to achieve. It was just a logical move up for me. Didn't like the Atari's at the time and progressed from a C64. Pocket money, was never going to by a PC. The first 486's (1994-1996), landed at $5000-$25,000 in my country. In the meantime I got my Amiga for 1K back in 1991. And could do this? Now we get to see it's full potential through emulation, sadly, on worse graphics hardware in someways (scrolling). Still have them all. 🙂
It was funny, that the 1 thing MS did PAID OFF…they paid PROGRAMMERS AND GAME DEVELOPERS.. Commie went around making new CASES and the same hardware.. THEY could of done more, BUT let others create GOOD hardware..A2000 16 meg 68030 35mhz.. WORKED great until they got the Pentium 200 and P2..15 years of being on TOP..
The sound effects/music on the Amiga were pretty cool!
