Am I the only person who acturally likes noise in my photos?

There seems to be an obsession with high ISO and low noise at the moment. Perhaps this has always been the case since digital overtook film.

I remember buying ISO 800 film with the sole purpose of introducing noise/film grain into my pics. And with current SLR and mirrorless cameras able to shoot 1600 easily with limited noise - when printing anyway - I wonder what the priorities are for photographers these days?

I have canon SLR and a mirrorless and, with both of them, I can shoot pretty much into pitch dark and get a usable result. Maybe I'm just getting old and grouchy, but it seems almost wrong to me.

Anyway...
