I wouldn't say FC2 was disgusting but forcing AF and AA can only do so much. MSAA only worked well when games were more basic, and it stopped working to totally eliminate aliasing years before FC2 was released. Crysis is a big name example, these days i need to run the game at 4k DSR to get rid of aliasing, and that tanks performance. Letting nostalgia get in the way is something i understand when it comes to gameplay, but not graphics. I also wasn't aware that checkerboarding was being used in PC games, tbh that is an option that i would actually like to see added.
