I agree with you also, but the point of the thread wasnt gameplay but hardware. I think we all know from being retro computer users that gameplay always comes first over graphics, but what was the main reason why we bought the Amiga to begin with!?. It certainly wasnt because it had the same graphic output as a ZX Spectrum
Compare Amiga games from 1998 and then fast forward it to 1991. The programmers that tapped the hardware produced more playable games with smoother scrolling, more immersive sound, greater speed.. etc..
