Thing about these - perhaps - is that they're for a generation of people who needed a bit more imagination because special effects were far less developed. You played a lot in what I think is still referred to as "your mind's eye"

The best games are a mix of old school and new graphics, but most game teams don't do that too well. It's a difficult challenge.
