In terms of games there are very few. Even though Payback is an original title, it is not an original game design (being a clone of GTA). But yes it seems a good enough game, and if it was my type of game I'd buy it.

Sorry, I did in fact complain, that's true. But if you think I don't own an Amiga (and I mean a fully qualified genuine Amiga) you are wrong. You are equally wrong if you think I don't own Amiga software. However one or two decent original games a year will not be enough to sustain a market.
> Freespace:Requires real Amiga with Warp3D.
No, it doesn't. Hyperion's statement is based on 060+3D card (software renderer on 060 is too slow) or PPC with or without 3D. In fact Freespace runs on both AmigaXL and Amithlon (using the software renderer), most likely at a decent speed as the emulated 68k has more processing power than the BPPC and CSPPC of today. However, this is not acknowledged on Hyperion's requirements as they don't recognise the existence of AmigaOS XL as a viable platform.

They do good OLD ports, and that's why those ports can't compete with the Windows versions which by then have become dirt cheap. Whose fault is that?
