Which AMI instance?

Hello!

I'm new to this and looking forward to trying the new AMI's later, but curious which instance type would be best?
I've seen information about the new G2 EC2 instances, but when i select to use your 'ORBX Cloud Game Console' windows AMI, i'm given options to select other instance types.
What are your suggestions, is a g2.2xlarge instance the only real option or would a m1.large be ok?
I would be trying to play games from my Steam (Valve) account, and maybe other windows based games if it works well.

First time users should start with the ADSK AMI - it boots up with admin rights ready to use, the other AMIs do not, as they are more for AWS devs, not end users.

The ADSK AMIs only run on G2 instances. I would pick the region closest to you of course.
