He's missed out on a lot of things that actually counter his objections(the map overlay can be mini'ed up in the corner, the quest items are always in the same place, it's just the place is on a random map, etc) but I do agree that playing the game with other humans gives it a life and enjoyment that is probably the major deal behind its longevity.
That was actually a pretty funny article. I'm replaying it also atm, and I can see that the nostalgia aspect he mentions is a big factor. Without that, I guess the graphics might look pretty cartoony and rudimentary on the widescreen, and all the game mechanics, while perfectly functional and easy to use, have about the same relationship to today's games as a '57 Chevy to a HUMMER.
Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.
