InfamousBLT: Quasar: Your computer has more to do now.Also B, you have another bottleneck somewhere else. Possibly hard drive read/write speed.
t3knomanser: Developer time is expensive. CPU time is very cheap.

Raging Thespian: Because it's still just a magical gnome inside of the box who does all of the actual processing. Give the gnome some damn time to do his job!
kiteless: It's all of your smooth curved edges and your color gradients and your fancy pants animations! In the 90s I remember getting along on 16 colors with square corners and I was thankful for it!

Phoenix87ta: Nadie_AZ: Phoenix87ta: Nadie_AZ: Wish I could fire up some of the 90s Lucas Arts games ....Ah 90s Star Wars games. You were awesome.[www.ibiblio.org image 640x480]I love that I can still play all the Lucasarts adventure games in ScummVM. Hell, they even ported it to PSP.Wait, what? Tell me more.ScummVMSupported games list:CompatibilityIt's a beautiful thing. Full Throttle, Monkey Island and Sam and Max never get old.
MythDragon: That 5GB 3000rpm HD that you are running Vista on, isn't helping much.
make me some tea: Because you need to upgrade your dial-up Juno connection.
labman: discgolfguru: This was my first system. You Commodore folks were barbarians.You got the disc drive? I was stuck with the tape drive.

akula: InfamousBLT: Haha, this. Go play some super old DOS game. Watch as all of the animations are insanely fast, everything moves way too fast for your mind to even comprehend what is going on. It's actually kind of funny.Many years ago I was talking to a guy, reminiscing about old computer games. I remarked how I liked the Test Drive series (especially TD2), but TD3 was unplayable on that 286... it ran, but only at something like 4 or 8 frames/second. He said he played the same game on a 386 and it ran properly, but on a 486 it just was way too fast for you to react.We don't often go back and dust off old games from generations past, but yeah, when one does so the result is something that's really moving along.
Hyperbolic Hyperbole: umm.. were you even AROUND back in the days of dialup BBSes? seven minutes to download a single sexy jpg? squee'd your pants creamy when mom bought you a 28.8 modem? i mean that shiat was awesome but DON'T pretend it isn't any better than it was in '95.
Aarontology: This is like a fat guy complaining that his pants are as tight as they were when he was skinny.
