So, is this whole article about games going backwards graphically...?

Resident Evil definitely needs to get back to what made it great. It can work, the RE5 DLC Lost in Nightmares showed it's possible if they work on it.

Final Fantasy is another one...turn based is not that bad, it just needs to be faster paced and get players in/out of the battles quicker. Lost Odyssey showed modern turn based can work.

Well, technically 10 was a big departure. But, other than that, yeah.
