Knight at Arms
Reinforcing @MadVader's analogy further. I never cared about what a game looks myself so Warband being uglier is irrelevant to me (I also find it debatable as others have said).
I am also not sure how you can say that one is "better" than the other. Difficult to have that kind of conversation when there's no objective metric to evaluate that. I like Warband way better but that's, like, my opinion man.
