Its quite odd. Take an indie game with pixelated retro graphics that applies some form of a scanline simulation and the graphics instantly give me a sense of joy and familiarity, while without the scanlines the graphics look cold and "wrong".
That's because we are people of yesteryear We grew up with those graphics and whenever we see them they yell "VIDEO GAME". What I see nowadays in those ps4's and xbox's is just good-looking interactive movies...
