So long as gameplay is good, I wouldn't care if I got to play it on a GameBoy screen.
This is why Arma 2 OA is popular. The graphics are the best but they're good enough. The game supports mods and is very mod friendly because of it. It's more about those you choose to play with. Also because of it's complexity and the need to match mods with the server, it keeps the kiddy's away.
