Ignoring all the specific plot nonsense, because honestly who gives a shit at this point, but I do have a point to make.

Look at how clear and sharp the image for the new films are. The vibrancy of the image, the crystal clarity. Look at it. Look at how fuzzy and inexact the small image from the old films looks.

Is it just me, or does it look infinitely better despite or because of that?

People scoff at traditional media. Tarantino is treated like an eccentric for going to the extent of having an entire film simply as a love letter to analogue media (Hateful 8), but look at those pictures and tell me that the clearer picture looks better.

Go on, do it. lie to me.

I recall reading a similar thing about some older games - specifically Elite (I'm an Elite fanboy, sue me) - the newer one runs at up to 4K and is, of course, pin-sharp.

The older one, though ... the older one is written to run on shitty screens and actually uses the crap screen as a form of hardware interpolation. The graphics are actually leveraging the hardware of the time consciously.

Well, you could use the Diablo series, too. The third game looks nice, rather like oil paintings. If it were anything but Diablo, I'd enjoy it more. I have the mods that upscale the first two, and I like the aesthetic of these for that particular franchise/universe better (and when it comes to atmosphere and the horror aspect, the original is still my favourite.)
