Subject: Unpopular opinion: Not all games stand the test of time, not even the classics
Thanks to the A500mini, I've had the chance to try two or three dozen games I missed the first time round. I have to say it's been a real mixed bag.
Which made me wonder - from a modern standpoint (which is an entirely unfair vantage point)*, how many Amiga games have a satisfying user experience in 2022? 10%? 50%? More? Less?
If you were to give a random Amiga game to someone to play, who didn't grown up with them, which ones might stick and which ones would be grating (in terms of unintuitive controls, insta-death, confusing gameplay, weird difficulty scaling etc)?
Eg: I had the experience of giving sensible soccer to someone who got ticked off that the ball got "unstuck" from the player the faster they ran. And I completely get it. That is annoying and weird.
Having said all that, there have been games that have a suprisingly good UE. Second Samurai and Superfrog more or less "just work" as you would expect in 2022 (which suggests we grokked the rules of platforming a long time ago). Lucasarts games are still engaging (though point and click games have gone the way of the dodo). Lotus is still enjoyable.
=* Realistically, we need to appreciate that "the rules" were still being written 30+ years ago and that many games were experimental.

Subject: Hard Cases for A500 Mini
Wondering if there are any hard cases available and compatible with the A500 Mini.
Seen this soft case on EBay but in my opinion I think is not that protective against an accidental drop.
Seems to be the only case available for the A500 Mini that I could find.
