It was a bit misleading - what I meant was: PC games are considered crap
(by you) if they don't have good lighting.
At the same time, though, I'm completely immersed in Metroid which is
about as far removed from a PC game, poor lighting or not, as you can
So I think I was supporting you.
Except I can't remember now.
