It's sad state of affairs. There was a great indie game shop in Sheffield city centre that closed recently, it had a retro section too. Another closer to home has started selling airsoft gear. There is only one other I know of but when I went in last the owner said he was struggling. We need to support these indie shops, we'll miss them when they'te gone.

@mecha-blargh I agree, early floppies were quite heavy and well made. In later years they became very flimsy.

Many people don't realise that the floppy drives head needs cleaning after long periods of storage. Many read failures are because of this.

I like the HD floppy image on the header...the Amiga never used HD floppies, it was DD.

As for the Amiga games dying, if the disks have been looked after and kept away from heat and damp they should work. Problem is people usually store defunct games and systems in attics, cellars, sheds, back of wardrobes etc which are not suitable.

I always thought back in the early 360 days when DLC first arose that it was a slippery slope to even worse. Now these shit days in gaming are here, I wish gamers kicked up a fuss back then. Only light for me is Mario and Zelda on the Switch. Not had this much fun in years!
