Like most people of my generation, I am often nostalgic for old, crappy technology. Take video games. While I am amazed by the incredible graphics available in games now, I kind of miss the bizarre cubist abstractions of the Atari 2600 Video Computer System of my youth. To call your protagonist in the game Berzerk a "stick figure" is a tad generous. But now look at this image above. It is a screenshot from an upcoming video game based on the movie based on the book Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. Very nice looking, right? Too nice! The people designing this game had no limitations. No obstacles. Would it be so bad to have a video game look like this?
I don't think so.
