hmm, well the Amiga was always a few years behind the times when it came to CPUs (68000 released in 1979, used in A500 in 1987; 68020 released in 1984, used in A1200 in 1992) and the custom chips were in many ways not as impressive as the graphics and sound hardware in contemporary arcade machines, or even consoles, but there was something about the particular choices and combinations that made it work.
