: Now that's a minority opinion if I ever heard one. I never thought anyone
Yeah it is weird to prefer M1's but the fighters are the exception to that rule for the reason you give. The XBLA fighters do look like an evolution of the originals but they don't need it as much as the troopers, S'pht, hunters and F'lickta do. They might also look jarring in the old map textures mode, though that applies to the XBLA monsters in general.
: Let's be clear, the XBLA monsters are NOT HD. They are the same if not lower
True, but I just called them HD for simplicity, basing the idea on Halo 1+2 Anniversary's Remastered mode. moreso Halo 2 Anniversary whose Remastered mode essentially does the same thing as XBLA Marathon 2, as opposed to Halo 1 Anniversary where they did the better thing of using Halo Reach and Halo 3 models in Halo 1's color scheme.
The only bad bit I can think of there other than animation goofs in Remastered mode (mostly cutscenes) was giving the Halo hunters the injector tube assault cannons instead of updating their drum magazine model to look like Reach's hunters but with the old gun design. The Halo PC mod SPV3 gives us both the drum mag and tubes on the same model and lets you use it.
: The reason why the HD replacements for M1 shine is because they were made by
Infinity's HD plugin is the same idea as Marathon 1 HD as well. I thought the old and new graphics for the XLBA map textures looked similar to the originals too, though I may need to look more closely at side by side comparisons.
