I understand it's a good example, and I understand it's a DOS game from the 90's, but the bitcrush is so bad. The people at the top barely look like people!

So a suggestion that is still bitty, but looks significantly less crushed:

While the bitcrush in the current ainít pretty, I find the contrast to be much more jarring.

Current > OP.

Also, bear in mind that this is a low-resolution game (320x200, I'd say); so any bitcrush is probably part of the medium depicted.

Keep the current. Those look like the native-resolution sprites, and I'm not even sure who in the OP is supposed to have a non-standard design.

Current for sure; the contrast is much more obvious.

Can we at least crop out the top set of people? The mugshots are way more recognizable, anyway.

Done and tagged; going ahead and locking since the old caption works fine.
