Agree with you 100%

The CPC might have had some nice games but many games were ports from other systems and came with the limitations of those systems, shame more games weren't made for the CPC to take advantage of its hardware.
Also true. But the missing hardware scrolling and the bad soundchip was a big handicap for the CPC. Though there are some nice games for this machine.
