Exclusive or games that hit Amiga 1st
« on: June 15, 2013, 09:59:19 AM »
Seeing the chatbox today about people not remembering what exclusive games the Amiga had I'd thought I'd post this list I've had for a while, going on research and interviews with the developers, so there may be the odd error.

Still nothing much that jumps out at me from the exclusives list. There's Agony and Apidya then Ruff n Tumble which would be good if it wasn't so difficult.

Even if that was relevant (which it isn't), I can still think of more pre-1993 PC exclusives that I would rather play like Commander Keen 1-6, Crystal Caves, Duke Nukem, Galactix, Monuments of Mars etc.

Each to their own but most of those are overrated imo too, something remembered by PC fans as their exclusive games, played them on dosbox wasn't impressed at all.

Btw I mentioned 1993 because even though yes I do prefer Amiga computers I do know that's when Commodore started to go downhill when they released a sub par chipset instead of the Intended aaa one and only 020 CPU wasn't enough to push 3d around' this is why it's mentioned, as I said above there wasnt good engh reasons to buy a PC imo.

I wouldn't call myself a PC fan, just a fan of gaming. I have an Amiga 1200, Atari ST, 2600, Dreamcast, Saturn, SNES, Mega Drive, C64, Jaguar, NES, PS1, 3DO, CD-i, Game Gear, GameBoy, N64, Mega CD, 32x, 130XE, BBC Master, ZX Spectum, Master System. Almost all of which are currently set up.

Also completed 38 non-PC games so far this year and I don't have "PC" in my username  :P

Eh, personally, I'd say once... let's say, 1992, rolled around, the PC was pretty much capable of doing anything the Amiga could, if not better. 256 color graphics, .mod support, and all that. I'd also say that One Must Fall was a better fighting game than a lot of fighters on the Amiga, mostly because the controls worked SO much better.

Buuuuut, since this thread isn't really about that (we really do need a thread on this), I will say that it's a shame that so many games ended up being Amiga exclusive. I mean, sure, we got the occasional exception, like Chaos Engine/Soldiers of Fortune, but keeping them exclusive like that must have cut out a HUGE potential market.

Must have missed this post.
I agree the PC could do most stuff the Amiga could by 1992...only if you upgraded your 1985 PC. ;-). But then so could an A4000 do what a 1992 PC could with 060 more ram hdd etc  http://youtu.be/eUv0jSYRBZo. but the devs just programmed for the cheap models..apples and pears and all that!..but thats another thread!
The Amiga exclusive games were never deals, Commodore never worked like that, it just happened if the game was big on the Amiga it had a good chance of being ported to Pc and consoles. (Which happened ALOT) as just some of the games above shows.

Its an amazing list of games to be fair, i never go into PC gaming until recently (circa 5 years) so i can not compare the two.. For me the Amiga was and always will be the defining gaming computer when i was a child but i do give Kudos to those other systems around at the time.
