Their answer (back then): because the PC is better since it has so many more business apps and networking and mainframes, etc. that the Amiga (a mere games machine) doesn't have. Made no sense then, makes no sense now.

As for the retro quality, just because someone was there in the past doesn't make it a sweet memory. You don't see previously homeless people waxing about their old days in the cardboard boxes in alleyways. Sometimes shite is just shite.
@Twistin. This sorta goes to one of my annoyances where modern PC publications (& sad to say publishers),will talk about these retro games, & then completely neglect to mention its amiga origins, or as you say refer to its origins instead being on what were bleeping, crappy PC dos boxes, or 16 bit consoles.
Its like rewriting the gaming history.

Unfortunately the modern PC press "snobs" refuse to acknowledge the pre Doom/Wing Commander days of the bleeping CGA/EGA dos box past, or dismiss the Amiga as a "toy" & it "never" was capable of the feats of the mighty PC.
Of course they neglect to mention how many new O/S's M$ went through & Intel PC archiatecture & CPU designs to achieve that!
