    Nvidia Says Graphics Matter

    From: IGN.com

    Nvidia Says Graphics Matter

    Dismisses Nintendo's assertion that graphics have reached a saturation point as nonsense.

    Nvidia, one of the world's leading producers of graphics processing technology, seems to differ in opinion from Nintendo president Satoru Iwata on the subject of game visuals. In a recent interview with Next-Gen business, VP of content Roy Taylor voiced his opinion on the matter of gaming graphics and presentation.

    "They're talking nonsense," he said of Nintendo assertion that videogame graphics have reached a saturation point. "It's ridiculous sot say that graphics don't matter. That's like saying 'The quality of my TV screen doesn't matter.' Oh really? So then in that case, you can go watch 24 in black-and-white on a seven-inch screen. It's nonsense to say graphics don't matter. I think we can do a lot better, but I think we'd like to see graphics encompassing the gameplay."

    During the interview Taylor does state that gameplay can oftentimes play second fiddle to a game's visuals but reiterates that graphics will bring more emotion into software, stating that gamers seldom become as emotionally invested in characters from a videogame as they do in movies.
    This comes as a big surprise from a graphics card company.

    lol you took the words right out of my mouth. of course they wuld say this. with no graphics, they have no money. its common sense for them to back it up. Ah well...t ME they arent the most important thing.

    I have read different versions of what he has said and tbf I agree with him. Most people go oh gameplay over graphics ftw!!!!11!!. All he says is that graphics are important to gaming to elicit responses from the gamer, which they are. He even says graphics have to be as much a part of the game as gameplay.

    His tv comparison is correct, I wouldnt go back to black and white TV in the same way I wouldnt go back to 8 bit graphics (except for a nostlagia fix).

    Basically Ive seen some articles saying he is replying to Nintendos view of gaming whereas Ive seen other articles where people have asked him whether graphics are still important or not.

    Fanboys jump on the nintendo one but not the other, which is why all fanboys should be pushed off a big mountain so the rest of us can enjoy our games.

    Of course graphics matter but fun controlls help make up for it.

    Plus graphics is almost strictly based on price... Not everyone thinks it's worth it

    graphics matter quite abit. the wii has good graphics for what we pay for, and great gameplay. and in my opinion gameplay is more important than graphics, even tho graphics is important.

    it depends on the genre, certain genres require the best possible graphics to convey emotion and atmosphere, certain genres like the mini game one, require bundles of gameplay to provide fun, they don't really need good graphics.

    People do the Wii down too much just because it isn't HD, as I have said before boot up RE4 on your GC (or Wii) then say to yourself 'twice as powerful'
    Next there will be a big hoopla about how the Wii isn't actually fun to play, as the funomoter2000 wasn't included in the hardware, Nintendo were lying to us this whole time and we weren't having 'real' fun it was all fake and tacky fun.

    see nintendo didn't mean that graphics don't matter, they said "Nintendo's assertion that graphics have reached a saturation point" hence the saturation point? i agree completely, the graphics on the wii are perfectly fine, who give a fcuk if i cant see wrinkles that well in some guys face? wanna now my opinion? big ****ing deal. sure graphics have a point, but would you be owning wiis if they costed 600 bucks a piece? i don't think so, and that's how much it would have been with high def. sure graphics are a good thing, from 16 bit graphics to what we have now is a hell of a revolution, but gameplay beats graphics. now... if it was graphics like the frist zelda compared to like.... the ps3, then ok we're like a mile apart. but the wii to the ps3 is like... an inch apart. no big effin deal.

    I would have to disagree with Nvidia, the example they use is stupid as its a great exaggeration, what nintendo meant is that graphics nowadays are pretty much as good as they need to be, that they have evolved to a point of general satisfaction and that focus should be taken away from that aspect. Another example of this, is that my internet connection doesn't really need to be any better, I never lag, it could be better yes but that would be a waste. But to be honest, a graphics card company saying that graphics matter is just an obvious statement , like microsoft screaming that vista will be a necessity for everyone in the future, the nvidia guy wouldn't have had a job for much longer if he said something like "yeah the graphics out now are fine, don't bother with our future products"
    Post is there ^^^
    How dare you state a different point of view, you complete fanboy! /sarcasm

    you sir speak the truth....... if someone doesn't make the first step to take a little focus away from graphics (Nintendo still made Wii more powerful so they obviously still have some focus on graphics) then all we will have is a power war and some very uninteresting machines to look forward to, look at this not in the short term but in the long. If Wii is a big success it will force console manufacturers to start thinking outside the box and make an interesting console not just a dumbed down PC.

    If you want graphics save your money you didn't spend on a PS3 and get yourself a nice dx10 (maybe from nvidia :P ) GPU, it will blow PS3 and 360 away completely. I personally think that RE4 and the like look as good as they need to, and focus needs to be moved on to other parts of gaming to broaden the experience.

    Graphics certainetly set the scene, games would be fully enthralling if as much focus was put into how we play the games. Which is Nintendos stance in a nutshell.
    Next there will be a big hoopla about how the Wii isn't actually fun to play, as the funomoter2000 wasn't included in the hardware, Nintendo were lying to us this whole time and we weren't having 'real' fun it was all fake and tacky fun.

    They take what Nintendo said and twist it completely around. Nintendo just meant they aren't stressing graphics because they aren't the most important part of the game. THEY ARE NOT ON THE SAME LEVEL AS STORY and GAMEPLAY!

    He says stuff about watching 24 on a black-and-white TV. That is taking things to an extreme. Comparing Wii's graphics to a black-and-white TV is incredibly stupid. Nvidia - we get it, you make graphics cards, you like graphics.
