The Atari ST wasn't initially designed for games but as an affordable home computer with a MC68000 CPU so it's more comparable to the low end Apple Macintosh machines ("Power without the price").

The Amiga was designed from the ground up as a gaming or multi-media machine and has some additional chips for graphics processing. However, those capabilities are quite limited compared to the arcade machines of that time. Most of the game companies have chosen the lowest common denominator of both machines especially for arcade ports.
