As I mentioned in another thread, 'art' is a toilet glued to a wall or a Jackson Pollock painting. See whatever in it you will, but art is worse than trash. Seriously, I'd rather look at a full...

I disagree. I'd rather look at breathtakingly beautiful hand-pixelled graphics at 25 fps than look at ugly, rendered crapmess at 50 fps.
