My issue with handhelds isn't with graphics, it's with handhelds. I even emulate DS games onto my television. (and most of the games I play are 16 or 32 bits) It's actually sad that people even associate modern console games just with new-gen graphics, as that really sums up the extent of their worth.
I suppose the rising popularity of handheld gaming signifies that RPGs being relegated to them doesn't mean their death, but rather foreshadows the death of the home console. Which I still find sad. I don't want to have to buy a weird phone or wallet sized game system so I can play great games at the super market. I want to play great games in front of my television, as I always have.
"To play video games because of its graphics, is as to watch porn for its plot".
My old roommate (who was an AVID porn collector) enjoyed story porn! He'd even print out straight up porn STORIES from the internet. . . not sure where he stood on video game graphics, though (he wasn't a gamer).
And Karura! First that innuendo link, now a porn analogy? Somebody's got her mind in the gutter!
He who gets screwed by tentacle monsters should see to it he does not become one.

Mmm... SaGa II
Being someone who played through (and still has) SaGaII, The remake does have a lot of the feeling from the first, including "Mr. S" being so overpowered compared to the rest of your team. Still, the battles feel slower... Hopefully they are not "PS1 Chrono Trigger" slow, or else I would have enough time to make a sandwich while the battle loads. >_>
