Commodore Amiga 1000

In 1987 my family bought a Commodore Amiga 1000 computer to be our family’s main computer. We had never had one of our own before although my father brought home machine like the Commodore SuperPet 2000, the Apple Macintosh and the IBM PC XT over the years they had never been able to stay.

The games that we owned for the Amiga were on 3.5″ floppy and have mostly deteriorated and no longer exist in a usable form. The computer still works fine, as of 2007, but sees little action. I have done my best to compile a list of the games that I owned and actually played on the system.

One thought on “Commodore Amiga 1000”

  1. Amiga…I love Amiga. I miss Amiga.
    I went from C=64 to Amiga 1000 to Amiga 500 to Amiga 1200 (the end of the line).

    I’ve never had a computer or operating system that worked quite as well as Workbench did for me. The Amiga was ahead of its time back then, and around 1993 or 1994, I had probably 300-400 games for it. I loved Faery Tale Adventure – the sound effects, the graphics, the gameplay. Oh man. Starflight II was my all time favorite, however.

    I toyed with the idea of getting an Amiga on ebay once before I tossed all my old games. Then I discovered that there’s a great Amiga emulator out there, and you can get most of the games online. I didn’t have a whole lot of time to play with it (set up a hard drive or virtual disk or whatever) and some of the games were buggy on that version, but it’s been over a year now – I should check it out again.
