I don't remember a single person that used CGA in composite mode. All I know is CGA graphics were a huge step down for anyone with an Atari 8-bit or Commodore 64.
My very first PC had an EGA card, which was much better than CGA. I don't think the PC became a viable gaming platform until VGA and the earliest Voodoo cards came out.

He clearly hasn't seen the capabilities of the Atari 8Bits GTIA mode! Great video though, thanks for sharing!
Totally agree. Atari 8-bit graphics blew away the PC until VGA came around. I remember a time of using a PC to do school work and such, but keeping my 8-bit around to play games.
