Yup, Wingcommander (2) was damn fine

I don't agree, 3d was important, but playability was the real reason.
I think the most important thing was that around 92 the PC set the new quality standard expected from games, and the amiga couldn't match it. After years of mascot platformers PC was a (relatively) fresh breath of air. Not just 15 min of arcade games, rather good games that emerged you.
Eye of the beholder
, SSI (RPG) games from there on were better on the PC
, no dubt that PC was the main version, the music is superb. Point and click was way better on the PC by then
, Already u6 was starting to show the problems with amiga
just so damn fun to play
, network death match never managed on the amiga
