If you look at computers through time, you will always find that computers capable of fluid animation, have always been the ones popular with enthusiasts. If one keeps putting out 50 frames/sec of animation, it simply becomes a different experience. Such as the c64 and Amiga, who both also provided decent sound. That was also the reason for the popularity of the arcademachines for a while, and also why these machines were thought superior to newer technology, for a long time, since these technologies, failed short of delivering this experience, even though, the computing power, was greater.
