Yes I miss original Runescape.
I don't care too much about graphics quality TBH. If the gameplay is good, I can play anything.

Also, I occasionaly play Nethack and Dungeon Crawl. No graphics at all!
Thinking about it again, I think that very realistic graphics actually make me dislike the game a bit. I like some room for imagination.
YOU CAN'T CUT BACK ON FUNDING! YOU WILL REGRET THIS!
I feel with bad/simplistic graphics I focused more on gameplay.
But with games like Bioshock Infinite I thought the gameplay was pretty awful, but enjoyed it purely because of the style/graphics.
Some of the best video games ever created are from the 8-bit/16-bit/32-bit era's. Because they didn't have the hollow shell of graphics to rely on, they actually had to make a quality, long lasting product for it to be considered good. Too bad that type of production quality has gone the way of the dodos, in favor of eye candy and easily reproduced systems for the almighty "easy" dollar.
Incidentally, that's why procedurally-generated worlds like Dwarf Fortress, Minecraft and CubeWorld are so popular nowadays. They allow people to explore positively enormous worlds without requiring a proportionally enormous staff to create them.
Roll the bones!
Now you see it. Now you don't.
