Hmmmm how many times have I asked myself this question.
You should also look at games like Shadowman, Max Payne and Deus Ex, although they were good games to play they lacked some older game graphics.......
Compare these games to Crusader No Remorse and Diablo.
I don't know if it's sloppy programming or just graphics now but I think the gaming industry has took a GIANT leap backwards, I mean we are supposed to have graphics cards that can handle millions of pixels and OS's that are meant to help games run better but PLEASE COME ON.....
Crusader No Remorse was in SVGA and ran is DOS
As I said Giant leap Backwards
