That's because it's usually one or two people who just want to make a game but don't have backgrounds or much skill in art. So the graphics are simple and they focus on the game.

Pretty much the exact reason a lot of old games made by just a few people look like that as well. It's also why it used to be widely accepted that the graphics of a game were usually one of the least important aspects. And that those who were overly concerned with it were mockingly referred to as 'graphics whores' or the like.

/vr/ has now moved into a bizzare alternate dimension where the graphical look of a game is one of it's most important features and is generally assumed that one glance a screenshot is all the information somone needs to form a good troll argument about why it's garbage.

It's pretty flippin weird, I gotta say.
