I didn't say it was better or worse. I don't think Parrothead has either. People who like really popular games aren't wrong. I mean I still love me a bit of Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, etc...
But when you're playing a game hardly anyone you know has even heard of, let alone played, then it feels like a more personal experience. You learn to love characters nobody else even knows. You want the world to love them as much as you do.
And it works. Look at how happy everyone is that Takamaru is in Captain Rainbow now

Here's a promo video for the TurboGrafx 16 that was mailed to people in the US in the early 90's. No need to watch the whole thing, but do check out the brilliantly cheesy first couple of minutes. In particular...
1:02 - The announcer explains the name. So, "grafx" is for graphics? No kidding! ;D
2:05 - Those two guys get really excited when they actually lose a round of Fighting Street!
2:19 - Who doesn't dance to CD's like this? I know I do!
