Am I going insane? Has the bank box always looked like this?

    Why does the upper half of the red box portion look all grainy? Right above the white and brown backpacks. I just got a new monitor, how long has it looked this way? Is this some attempt at drawing the back of the box that I've just never noticed?

    Oh well I've already gotten used to it. Before now I just never really had any big reason to get rid of my gigantic ancient cube monitor.

    Personally I play on a 46" LED HDTV and I can say much of the game looks poopy like that. I just ignore it... sigh and move on. What I don't do is recommend UO to my friends.. most of them who know me have seen UO on my monitor and laugh... telling me they can't believe I still play that "P.O.S." And laugh and make fun of the crappy graphics... the "holes" in the waterline... and everything else. Telling me how beautiful this game and that game are...

    But when it comes down to it and I ask them things like... Well can you fish in that game? Do you get your own boat with cannons? Can I own a house and design and decorate it how I'd like? Can my friends visit my house? Can I be the Governor? (Not that it really means anything but it is kinda cool to have the ability)... Is there real role-play? Is that a leveling game?

    When they can't answer correctly on most that stuff then I go... So... you want me to give all this up for a pretty picture then? NO.

    To me most games are leveling games... which are basically a series of hand holding quests that force you to follow the same freaking path as anyone and everyone else who has chosen your "race" and your "profession" so that you can all wear the exact same outfits when you are at the same levels and use all the same "gear" and weapons.... so you all play exactly the same depending on how well you can play that build.... etc... I will not be pigeon holed. I don't want some game leading me around by some nosering to what they decide is the top game... I don't want a game holding my hand telling me how I should play. The BIGGEST problem with those games is once you reach the "top" goal... there isn't really anymore point to playing it some more. Then it's wait till the next expansion shell out another wad and bust but following the rest of the rats along a trail of breadcrumbs until you reach the end again... I don't play that way.

    I haven't effectively seen the inside of my bank box in over a decade.
