yeah, you're probably right. like i said, it's autistic. i've always had a weird inconsistent relationship with graphics and art styles. like for example, if i've played an old game when it originally came out, it still looks fine for me and i feel like the graphics haven't aged at all. but if i pick up a game from 1999 that i haven't played back then, it somehow looks like ass to me. even if it's the same engine.
like for example unreal looks just fine to me, but deus ex looks unforgivably ugly, it makes me want to puke just looking at it.
