I see your first console was the Gamecube. From that observation I am going to guess you started when games had already made the transition to 3D.
Based on that I deduce you have a set for how a game should look or "feel" even. This is something I've seen many times from other players younger than myself, and it's only going to get worse as time goes on.
To play the original and it feels out of place and to then play its remake and love it seems like a block. See, you were fine with the "tolerable" graphics of Knights of the Old Republic, because it was closer to how you see games.‎‎
You're from another era. Gen 6 if that's your start. Not degrading you here, but that's what it is. Games, like a lot of other mediums, are of their time. When playing an older title I generally put myself in that mindset.‎ You should try that next time you play an older game. May not be an easy task, but remind yourself what games looked like and their limitations.‎

If you can't do that then I don't know what to tell you, other than you're going to miss out on a lot of classics and memorable moments that the current crop stand on the shoulders of, because not every classic gets a remake/remaster.

I came from coleco/intellivision/commodore 64, so poor graphics dont bother me. In general, i love playing the oldies and find enjoyment in those gems.
