Yes, but as I said, that doesn't mean that there weren't millions of people playing these games on 286 machines. Many of them have probably never even seen the Amiga versions of those games.
Which makes a 286 'not useless' if you want to experience what gaming was like on PC in those days. Perhaps it may actually be interesting to do a comparison between 286 and Amiga some 30 years after the fact.
I remember the years of 1989 to 1992 really well. That was the years, that I attended the local computer club. And boy did people bitch and fight with words, on what was a better machine. The Amiga or the PC. That "war", was so poisones that they had to split it up into two rooms. One for Amiga's and another room for everything else. I was one of the only few, that actually told both camps that each platform had it's own strengths. Like the Amiga was good at anything artistic and gaming. Yet the PC were better at office things. Every single hardcore fanboy of each platform, refused to talk further, once I stated what the "enemy's" platform were better at.
Here in Denmark, computers were for the really few and priviliged people. Like if you had 20 families, perhaps 3 of them had a computer. And even fewer families had teenage boys, who actually owned a computer. Mostly, the computer they had, was an Amiga or a Commodore64. So I guess I was one of the lucky few, that actually saw a game like Monkey Island, Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade, Stuntcar Racer, North And South, Wings Of Fury, Populus, Syndicate, Civilization and other games on both platforms. As far as I remember, the year of 1992 was the year in wich the PC ran from the Amiga in terms of game quality. Like in Januaery of 1992, the Amiga were best in 100% of all games, and at the end of 1992, only a few handfull of games were better on the Amiga.
