The whole point it: Even if you can work around these limitations of 8bit Computers, and push the hardware to their limits, it's often not a good game at all. Chase HQ e.g. is a crappy 8bit game, even the so called masterpiece on the Spectrum. It's unplayable shit, barely average in 16bit ports. Only the late 1:1 Sega Saturn version shows real playability.

Mostly the best games are these games that were originally designed for the specific hardware, not some ports. And then you still have to see it in the right perspective. As i said above. Even if it's pushed to/over the hardware limits, it's not always a good game. And you can see it more often in Spectrum/CPC games than C64 games for sure.
