The (256 color) pixel art does have a special place in my heart (Hi DOTT!), however more than anything the game had a style/art-direction that fit the story/world very well. So, consistency, style and art direction trumps type of graphics.
Norwegian as native language, Norwenglish being my second language, once upon a time I might have been able to make myself understood in German, although currently I would probably end up mortally insulting somebody if I actually tried. But, well, go "Other"!
