I really don't understand the point in berating people for, or acting like people are less valid for, critiquing games with a modern lense. Most good art stands up to the test of time, and that's the same with video games. You don't see people ridiculing Ocarina of Time for ridiculous reasons, like "the graphics are bad!" or "there's no HDR!". You DO see people critiquing aspects of the game that were always bad, but less noticeable in the past, however.
Exactly what I've been saying since the beginning of this thread.
