For every smooth moving CPC game, there are 20 C64 games that move just as smooth if not better, making the game more playable.
The CPC and Spectrum were ok for flick screen adventure games, but throw a scrolling arcade style game at them and they really struggled.

And considering that a lot of games were arcade ports or clones in the 80's, then the C64 with it's custom hardware scrolling and sprites was the reason it kicked so much ass.
And the Sid chip was just the icing on the cake
This is also why the C64 outlasted the competition for many years as well due to the superior hardware and games, and was the worlds No.1 selling computer at the time.

Another typical comparison-
