The grain sets it firmy in the 80's, and when you put a real robot in there my brains says "this is impossible, advanced walking robots are supposed to be in the future, not in the 1980's. Thus, this is creepy as hell". It's a subconscious thing.

There's a LOT of nostalgic nerds who grew up in the decades when electronics still had nobs, that very special greyish beige colour and screens that were deeper than they were wide.
