That's true. In Germany computers ,especially the Amiga (at least in my family and group of friends), we're more popular. Infact it wasn't until I moved to the U.S. when I was 10 years old that I got my first console (an SNES 6 years after it came out!
). I'm sure what platform was more popular was different country to country. As far as I know (not 100% sure though) the Amiga wasn't quite as popular in the U.S., although I can't base this off of being around at the time since I grew up in Germany. Every time I mention Amiga here, VERY few people know what I'm talking about.
