Humans? Usually unappreciative and typically awful. But it wasn't always like this! When we didn't have fancy technology with so many features they become useless and couldn't trap amazingness in a box in our pockets, we enjoyed the little things. Like 8-bit graphics and physical buttons and cords and cartridges. Hell, we even though the graphics were great. Now? It could be real life and we wouldn't be impressed.

Dorkly drew a hilarious comic that pokes fun at us gamers who don't deserve nice things and it's painfully true. Let's get back to being happy and enjoying crappyness! Okay, yeah, no. [Dorkly]

I don't think Skyrim has bad Graphics, they're just imbalanced* unworth mordern PCs.

I mean I run it on Ultra on a GTX560Ti and and the Card doesn't even give a wisp. I don't think that's because the Card is that great, but because the game is on the one hand really good optimised and on the other hand rather ... ok-ish.

All, just so that we would want the next gen Fallout/Elder Scrolls even more. =)

* like you have a greatly detailed bucket on a practise target with rather poor textures, and a lot of other graphical contrast.
