For various reasons my first foray into retrogaming/computing was with an Amiga 500. Bought a handful of games for it off of eBay, played a bit, got disappointed, and decided to get an A8 instead and never touched the Amiga again (sold most of the software I bought as well).
Now the Amiga and the various other bits are sitting in my bedroom closet unused. I've been meaning, for months, to box it up, figure out how much shipping would cost, and toss it up on eBay. So it occurred to me I need to give it a second chance, but this time knowing more than I did last summer that I can find and acquire the games I'd like in a more cost-effective manner (two boxes of blank 3.5" DSDD floppies) that would better let me explore what this computer can do.
Have you been able to overcome your initial frustration with a new console/computer and end up liking it later on. This is really my big concern, I mean I liked some of the stuff I got for the Amiga but I found everything to be so hit or miss.
What resources are there for Amiga newbs who are interested in just gaming.
Will Amiga Explorer be my best friend in this process.
If all else fails is there anybody on AA in the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area that wants an Amiga 500 in good shape.
