Last year I've been adding a lot of Amiga games; and some of the games I had to ad twice as "Amiga" game, where they actually should have been added seperately as "Amiga CD32":
Atari Jaguar have it's own platform entry, which is rightly, but in my opinion the Amiga CD32 should also have, as we are talking about a 32-bit Amiga CD-platform.

And to make it even more specific; Where you can get a CD-ROM drive for the classic Amigas, and there is the Commodore CDTV (which is an Amiga 500 in a fancy cabinet with a CD-ROM drive - and therefore rightly fits the platform "Amiga"), the CD32 disks are not compatible with the CDTV drive or the Amiga A570 (external Amiga CD-rom drive) - the CD32 is however backwards compatible with 16-bit Amiga CDs.

I hope you will see my points as valid.

Yes.

There is some platforms missing in the database, including this one, and eg. Commodore 128.

Re: Platform Sugestion: Amiga CD32
But how many games were made for Commodore 128 - where you do not have to GO 64 (run in Commodore 64 mode)?
Okay; I found a list: http://www.lemon64.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=16196
I have to admit that researching games for Commodore 64 and 128 needs more dive in; if it is a native C128 game or one that need to be run in C64 mode.

However Amiga CD32 is indeed a different platform, similar to the (already added) Atari Jaguar vs Atari ST; "numural" Amigas (500, 600, 1000, 1200, 2000, 3000, 4000, etc), the Commodore CDTV and Atari ST were all 16-bit (okay, we could then argue if first generation Amiga (OCS) and second generation (ECS) are one Amiga architecture and if second generation, such as Amiga 1200 (AGA) is a second, as some games can only be played on AGA Amigas such as the A1200 but not on OCS/ECS Amigas) - sorry back to the topic and reverse:
The "numural" Amigas (including Commodore CDTV) and the Atari STs are all 16 bits, where the Atari Jaguar and the Amiga CD32 are 32-bit consoles.

Amiga CD32 now has a platform entry.

Around 33 games. More then double the amount as eg. Virtual Boy that has it's own platform.

I am not sure about this one yet. It will require discussion on the Cabinet first.
