HAs to be the Amiga original for me, it was the first version I played and came across and is very hard to let that slide over to the other versions, but the "Acorn Archimedes" version comes in a close second.

plus your youtube video have met their limits and your the owner lol...

I went with the DOS and MD versions.  Honestly, hard to choose between computer systems.

I rinsed the SNES version of this back in the day - loved it. I had played it on PC but the machine wasn't up to he task so it's unfair to compare it.

I have since got the MD version and it doesn't feel as fast as the SNES version but I'd have to play them both again to be sure. Traded in the SNES version (to my regret) years ago.

Gods - Title (Mega Drive)
Gods - Title (SNES)

I voted for the Mega Drive. I find the tune from the computer versions incredibly annoying.

Amiga version wins of course! Archi is good too, impressed with the Atari ST version being pretty close, the Bitmaps could always push the ST further than anyone else, DOS version is lacking and is the worst of the computer versions.
Snes version is better than the Megadrive one, but thats not saying much when the tune isn't a match on the original anyway!

Sorry, had to go with the Amiga. Never played the console versions though I may look out for it.
