That doesn't mean I am slagging off Amiga platformers by any means, it just means I see a perfect example of a genre on another machine. If I was a shmup freak then no doubt the best examples of that genre would probably be on a different machine again.

Mass marketing hasn't shaped my view.
I agree with everything you've said I also got SMW late and have exactly the same feeling about the Mario games, in comparison to any platformers, not just Amiga platformers.
