I think that the new Mega Man game looks fine (Might No 9 looks fine too) and that most of y'all are just really jaded, staunch nostalgists. If something doesn't fit your narrow aesthetic want, then it is garbage and the old ways were always better. I'm being a little facetious there but it does feel like that.
I don't care how many bits, I just want sprites.
Yup. We may be some staunch nostaligists, but I don't think it necessarily means being jaded too. It's totally fine that there are all kinds of games with all kinds of art styles, nothing wrong with that. I just like sprites a lot. And, I think it's pretty normal preferring a different style of music or painting or whatever artform over another. When photography was developed, people didn't stop painting.
