Anybody who has ever played an old game with a 'filter' on it designed to guess inbetween pixels so they don't have to be offended by seeing something that looks old and made by an actual human is a fucking idiot who I can never relate to on any level.



Similarly, anybody who thinks that the Monkey Island remakes that replaced the pixel art where every single pixel was chosen with great care and artistry with big broad vector brush strokes is an absolute wrongheaded fool.

I'm going to jump on this pet peeve every six months until I can confirm that every one of these wrongthinkers has perished from dullness of the brain, and then I'll just pass away on the spot knowing that my life's purpose has been fulfilled.

Agreed, those remake graphics are always hideous and miss the point completely.

I don't really mind that one. It doesn't fundamentally destroy the original artwork. I quite like the filters that take the pristine digital output of an emulator and run it through the bandwidth limitations of a PAL/NTSC signal too.

I play XCOM with a CRT filter like that when I'm playing me homebrew Cold War mod, just to get extra ~immersed~.

Turn-based rpg fans are the equivalent to fans of harpsichord concertos.

Resident Evil 4 might be the best game of all time. It's the only game I played through more than twice, and I wake up thinking about it even though I haven't played it for years.

Turok and Silent Hill 2 have never been topped when it comes to the perfect representation of fog.

No genuinely good games have been made since 2004. The PS1 was as good as it got or ever will get.

Not the biggest fan of turn-based RPG's, but they make a lot more sense than more modern hybrid systems that aren't satisfying as strategy or action games.

Cave games are the purest distillation of the complete range of human experience in videogame form.

Anyone who genuinely believes no good games have been made since 2004 is a thick, narrow-minded brexit paedophile

It is the best one, but the CD ROM version has a creepy video clip for Cure For Cancer that scares me.
