Pulled into the story, the feel/style/atmosphere of the graphics, and generally liked the art that was born out of lower graphic resolution(320x200) vs the 640xX and up, which usually felt uninspired/canned. The lower resolution seem to force people to be more creative, and perhaps leave more for your imagination to fill in. Background music and sfx were also nice, helping set the mood, and particular sfx were ear candy.
