20 Amiga A500 games you should own
« on: 21:36, 31 August 16 »
Well finally I got round to it after viewers and subs endlessly asking me to do such a thing, to produce a combination list between my top 20 favourite Amiga games and 20 games I think you should have in your Amiga collection especially if you have just started your collection.
I hope you enjoy it, my 20 recommended Amiga games.

As I hope to be finally setting up my hxc to my A500 soon, shame it can't be done as an external drive, this'll help me choose what to try first.

Why not? I have a HxC connected externally as FD0: to my Amigas.

I don't remember the exact details / pins etc, I did it years ago, but I more or less just made an ABBA switch much like I did on the CPC.

That would be excellent and the 1200 has some great places to hide the switch. Any chance of peeking at your handy work and documenting it?

As far as I can remember, I only did my A600 and A1200. One involved breaking tracks on the PCB. For obvious reasons the mod is different on each model.

Wish I knew how to do it.
Tried looking into it but couldn't find much info which really surprised me as I figured one way or another someone would've done it and documented it.

I have to agree with your list mate.  Chaos Engine was amazing (and still is) and became one of the few games that I managed to complete by the skin of my teeth.

I never managed to fully enjoy Turrican 1 - a disk fault prevented me from progressing through the upward scroll level.

Maybe you should do a new video which lists the top 20 second place, must own games - Stunt Car Racer, Time Bandit, Space Harrier (wait! Soz, I was thinking about the ST version)
