Is the overall point of your thread to just complain about games not looking as pretty as in earlier vertical slices and just not acknowledge any sort of context?
It’s one thing to say “X game was my biggest disappointment on this topic, but I’d like to add that it was understandable for X reasons.”
But you’ve come in with no intention of actually joining the discussion and instead are making serial argument posts.
Many people don't do this, especially when they not only make braindead comparisons but also call the end product ugly regardless of the context. Even OP started the thread with stating that a four year old game is actually ugly along with the implication that the only way for it to be consistently pretty is by editing ini setting.
Why enter a thread where you refuse to acknowledge the existence of its premise?
