I want to apologise in advance if some of you are sick of this topic, feel offended (before reading past the subject line), or if it was discussed to death already. Also, I know AGS isn't inherently low-res, there are games like The Cat Lady among others. Here we go.

Why do people buy low-res pixel art adventure games? Is it

A)nostalgia?
B)because the games are just good, no matter your opinion on the graphics?
C)because there are simply not that many (good) adventures, leading to people buying everything they find?
D)something I didn't think of yet?
E)a combination of any of the above?

For me personally, it would be E). I played some of the classics in my childhood, on other people's computers. I like pixel art, but of course the gameplay is solid too, or I wouldn't bother.

Until somewhat recently, I only played adventure games I got by chance, like on a magazine DVD. Yes, these still exist.
A couple of years back I came across the Blackwell bundle on GOG (on a heavy discount, of course) and since then I've played a lot of adventures, high and low resolution alike. I bought the majority of Wadjet Eye's catalogue and a ton of others. Well, I wouldn't be here if I hated the stuff, would I?
