You have an opinion. That most don't agree with it. An opinion alone doesn't make it a good opinion.

Only to counter your argument that its marketing to the ignorant masses that makes some games judged as better.

Some may get bonuses. Most do not. I'm talking about a unanimous opinion amongst many multi-format monthly paper mags, daily newspapers, countless internet review sites, all saying the same thing. What makes them more qualified. beacsue if they keep giving good reviews to games that feature bad graphics, have technical flaws, bad game design, their opinions will be disregarded by the gamers, and they would eventully lose their jobs.

i really wouldnt have thought that needed explaining.

maybe you need to go back and re-read the quote that was being replied to before calling people stupid.
Are you for real???? i am not talking about sticking a joypad into an A1200 and playing a game that has up D-Pad hard coded into the game, as most Amiga games are. I am talking about playing games where the game lets you push a button to jump up. Like SMB. Unlike most Amiga platformers, although you can modify a megadrive/genesis controller to let you do this.

And the same for driving games, with Amiga you have to push up to accelerate, down to decelerate and left and right to turm, all with one wrist action. As opposed to left and right with L thumb, and button down with R thumb to accelerate, thumb off button to de-celerate.
