Static stadiums - I use to spend hundreds of hours collecting and organizing stadium backgrounds for teams.

the 3D stadiums (especially the historic ones since I play so much historical) has replaced all that because I enjoy the game in 3D so much. I see many here dont like it, but for me the style (basically Earl Weaver style modernized) is exactly perfect for what I want. Full on "the Show" style would be too much for me and I would notice the flaws. The current method reminds me of the impressionist style of painting. Enough detail to know exactly what I am seeing, but not so much that the lack of exactness takes away from the experience.
