I stopped caring about grill marks 20 years ago, when I discovered that even browning of my meats tasted better.
Look at it this way, Applebee's serves steaks with great looking grill marks. Ruth's Chris Steakhouse serves an evenly charred crust on a medium rare steak. Prime steak houses don't do grill marks.
Do you want to serve up Applebee's steaks, or Ruth's Chris steaks?
I agree. Grill marks look nice, but a nice charred crust gives you superior flavor.
