Exactly. We've all been through this many times before and it's unfortunate people still don't get it, especially on this forum where we should know better: promoting features that extend beyond those originals is not only missing the main point of preservation by a country mile, but it's doing real damage to our understanding of how those games were originally played. Years of ugly "aspect-stretched" or "HD textures" YouTube videos has introduced new generations to a false reality. Like what would happen if new generations had no idea Casablanca was actually a black-and-white movie. It's pretty sad.
