Doom was just the final nail in the coffin.

If Commodore had released an expensive AGA machine in 1990 (like they did with the 1000 before) and in 1991 had the 1200, they would have retained their lead in that department for a few years.
The PC was an expensive gaming machine for lots of people, hence why the Amiga and ST found a slice of the market, you mention VGA in 1990, but don’t forget the Amiga had its best ever year selling a million machines in 1991, it didn’t need AGA any earlier to archive more sales.
