Other points all noted.
I like dated.
Too many sites these days try to be pretty. Most only succeed in being a loud explosion of colours and fonts, and lose most usability in the process.
The KISS principle should be hammered into the brain of every web designer with a large, nay gigantic, sledge-hammer.
Edit to clarify: I think this site, at least the Immortal Game skin (I rarely see the others) currently gets this mostly right.
