nah, i do admit, obviously when things are done right you do take notice, but i think a bigger deal is made over most of these sorts of things (scrolling, graphical or musical style etc) than often needs to be.

A game can look dated, feature music you end up turning off, and be far technically brilliant, but can still be very very enjoyable if the gameplay is good. (wont mention my obvious example of this)

i thought most retro-gamers were of similar thinking... but it seems not.
