Amiga Games

The Amiga games scene is one of the most important in gaming history[?], it was the first home computer to gain major success as a games machine due to its graphic[?] and sound subsystems being far ahead of their time. A game made for the Amiga platform generally had much better sound and graphics than the same game running on a IBM PC.

Upon reaching its zenith in the early 1990s it became the platform of choice of many games development companies. At that time virtually every game destined for the PC was first released on the Amiga to test the waters due to cheaper development costs.

The Amiga gaming scene was responsible for the rapid growth of small gaming companies including Electronic Arts[?] who were contracted by Commodore International to produce the Amiga's standard graphics format IFF, and Electronic Arts' Deluxe Paint was included as standard with many Amigas thus giving them early access allowing them to gain a major foothold.
