my first was a commador amigo.. or was it amiga? i don't remember.. all i know... is that miniature golf.. and gold rush were amazing games... especially considering goldrush was a free roaming rpg kinda based game... got to ask questions freely to people and everything... the only bad part... was that you couldnt play the game.. unless you could answer the question it asked you in the beginning... and at that time.. iwas like 5 years old... and didnt really care for reading the book that came with it to play the game... so i always had to call my brother over to help me out!
