I've been playing games for decades, I know what works and what doesn't for me. As I wrote in my previous post, this has nothing to do with the aesthethics of the design, so stating that I won't notice the graphics after playing enough is really not helpful.
It's the top down perspective. Ive played through Avadon & Avernum, currently playing through Geneforge (hence lurking on these forums ;-) ) Even if the graphics are, ahem, the lovely shade of greeen that the Geneforge ui is, I can roll with them as long as they are 2d isometric. It's not about the aesthetics, it is simply that this top down "point of view" doesn't work for me. I guess I'll be skipping this game / series.
