FFVI Mobile: No excuse for “nostalgia glasses” argument

"We often accuse people of wearing “nostalgia-tinted” glasses when they defend a game with outdated graphics or gameplay that no longer meets the current gen status quo.

I'm the wrong person to probably say this BUT a while back I had watched a documentary that dealt with pixels and gaming in the early 90's. The jist was the way these models (in general) were created was the artists used some sort of technique where they would space out the pixels just enough and your eyes would fill in the gaps giving the allusion of more detail.

With the addition of scanlines which helped the pixelated figures you were presented with a visually appealing game. Hence the scanlines options on WinKawaks or the fact that certain VGA adapters for the Dreamcast replicate scanlines.
