    I really like to think of the move to "flat design" as a reset; simplify the graphics to make way for new considerations; think animation, dynamic text, colors, layout, etc.

    Sure, we lose a lot of the character of the original visuals (it looks like Simcity!), but it might be making way for something super cool.

      I agree, taking away all the decorations and moving towards less "stylized" looks allows faster iterations cycles.
