This also applies to every computer system at the time, and if certain arcade ports looked weak on the Amiga, then they generally looked even weaker on all the other mainstream computers at the time.
(Apart from lame st ports to amiga).
X68000 says hi!

If only we knew back then the Japanese made a mean gaming system. The Amiga vs st debate would be a mere footnote to the x68000's dominance.
