With the exception of a few exclusives is it really worth it? I mean if you have a lot of cash I understand but for the average gamer I just don't see it. I was interested in the 5200 at one time, but I can get most of those games on other systems without having to deal with the sorry joystick.
The Atari ST was a huge European success for a few years, as the more affordable alternative to the Amiga.
It earned Atari some serious UK credibility. They'd immediately lay waste to that credibility afterwards, but you could make a case for the 16-bit library being the best thing they ever put their name to.
