In 1985-1987 the Amiga was nowhere near "affordable" as a games machine anyway

But as I said, I didn't say it was a successor, full stop. For gamers, Amiga was a very affordable alternative to PCs. For gamers, a Playstation was a very affordable alternative to PCs. Also, don't forget that many used their Amigas and their Commodore 64s and PCs purely for gaming. Because, you know, they had different games than consoles, so it could very well be considered an alternative to console, why not the other way around?

And KG was condenscending, wether you blame it on (bad) humour or not. He took my words out of context and made a sarcastic remark about it as if I was stupid for saying it, then not even giving an argument why (in that post, mind). That's condenscending.
