In a lot of ways, well-drawn 2D bitmaps like Fallout and Planescape:Torment are more durable than the early attempts at 3D graphics. "Good" and "shiny" graphics have always been seperate, tho', there's a difference between awesome artistic direction, like the otherwise ugly Pathologic or Bioshock, and just a shiny game that'll look laughably bad in a few years, like Oblivion.
