To me, Mode 7 seems revolutionary. As long as you know how to work with it, you can make incredible-looking maps, even ceilings! But I never see it utilized in any projects, except for This Project and it's first version, which I think look absolutely beautiful.
So, why is this? Is it unfavorable? Do people just want to avoid making custom sprites and figuring out how to make maps? I'm a little confused. Personally I think it's pretty fun to find out new ways of making a map and watching it spring to life. It certainly makes it look a lot more different than the countless RTP-Using projects out there.
Opinions? Sorry if anyone has seen this before, I've looked everywhere for a Mode 7 Pros and Cons but I can't find one.
