I think the latter part of your comment is more accurate. This was the time when the home computer games industry started going all business-like and doing things 'properly.' This led to coders being forced into unrealistic timescales and strangling the creativity and metal-banging that really pushed the Amiga and gave us great games. Why spend money re-developing a game that has already been done on similar hardware. Much better to get it out quick and improve the bottom line! Sad....

Thankfully there were still some developers who REALLY wanted to make great Amiga games
