Not only that. There are new games with graphics that resemble something out of the 1980s. And let's not forget Minecraft. The guy from Sweden who made it sold it for 2.5 $$$billion$$$. Blocks anyone?
Well, to be fair, Minecraft itself has been around for more than ten years, and those graphics- which include quite complex management of light and shadow- would have been totally impossible for a commercial game in the 1980s. I remember 3D games from about 1990: they didn't look like Minecraft.
The look of a game does matter but the new TOAW graphics would have been entirely possible in 1998 and are really down to an individual person's tastes rather than making things objectively better, especially as there were multiple custom graphics sets already available for TOAW III.
Again, though, it's hard to sell a "new" version of a game when to a casual observer it looks exactly the same. Didn't I already buy this? Or, didn't I already decide not to buy this?
Anyway, this week I have been mostly playing Lords of Chaos on my Atari ST emulator
