That phrase gets tossed around a lot, "hasn't aged well." Do any of you watch classic Black and White films? Just enjoy it for what it is. People will say the same phrase about 'modern games' 20 or more years from now, a new age of 'haven't aged well' games.
For some reason I missed this before, sorry about that. I am not talking about visuals (to your B&W movie comparison), but mechanics. Lots of the casting mechanics and the ensuing downtime is rather rough now. The backtracking multiple times to complete quests is another example.
It isn't a graphics thing. Think of it more like how many puzzles in classic adventure games seem absurd and random now, but they really didn't at the time.
I'm like the man who single-handedly built the rocket and went to the moon. What was his name? Apollo Creed?
