Amiga stands out as the one I just kick myself over. While it's really a computer, not just a game system (duh), I'm a gamer, so Amiga Toasting graphics for TV doesn't apply to me. There are a number of things that the Amiga did so well, I really can't fathom why we aren't trying to do it today.
- Sega Genesis (played with friends)
- Sega Saturn
- Sega Dreamcast
- Nintendo 64 (played with friends) *
- Super Nintendo Entertainment System (played with friends extensively) *
- Nintendo GameCube
For example, putting the OS on a PCI-Express card. Why the hell not? Even VISTA might run fast - and you certainly can't warez it!
* I now own this.
Well the GP2X is very Amiga like in that anyone can dev for it - it's cheap. When that break out box comes out... could we see a resurgance of the bed room coder, but actually developing on the GP2X itself?
