Oh please – I am LOVING this education here. Your commentary on modern day striving for perfection is SPOT ON. I “felt that” before but couldn’t put my finger on it, but you nailed it.

[put words to my feelings on the subject].

It’s why I adored Minecraft when it came out. Its style said, “F-u realism” and hid all of its sophistication in the engine that drives it, offering the “Dream of the 1980s” in immersive 3D.

An interest in retrocomputing and retrogaming has blossomed since then, where the characteristics of the old style games, instead of being something to overcome, ,became something to embrace, like Holy Relics of a Bygone Era, Chiptunes in EDM (Electronic Dance Music) – blocky art… a marvelous response to, “Hey, let’s make this look like reality”.
