No, I won't trust you here! I give a SH*T on soft shadows, even on my desktop. 
I switch off animation because I think it's annoying waste of time to 
see "the same movie" over and over. Alpha blending? Eeew! Useless.

Every single argument been mentioned multiple times here. Redundance. 
GTA03 has VGA - period! 
04 even better i'd bet on it. 05 virtually no-one even thinking of now, not to 
mention sourceability of parts when it's coming to real.

And now I'm definitely stopping to feed this tro.. er, thread, which btw seems 
nobody is looking on the weird subject any more :-/
