"Seriously, who needs graphics better than that? "
I do! I lived through that era once already. I don't need to live through it again
I spent the 80s and 90s loving graphics like that because they were the most impressive things I'd ever seen. So it's only in that same spirit that I now look upon them as quaint, and reach for newer heights.
If you told me in 1990 that people in the future had access to greatly improved graphics yet willingly chose to stay with decades old stuff, I simply wouldn't have believed that such craziness was possible .
