man that thread title gave me a total wrong idea about the content
As for flashy animation, i suspect lag issues for the majority of players and the final out for some players using old pc's. I don't see a reason to put them in if it means reducing the community. And on a sidenote, it ain't the special effects that make a good film, same goes for animation and games. I had more fun with some low-pixel games back on snes then with those uper-graphic games on the latest stations.
