well, i can sum this up in one word. yes. in fact nay, two words! hell yes.
people who say ''graphics arent everything in a game'' are spewing absolute Sxxt. graphics on a game are as important as the sound and everything else that makes up a game. it paints a better picture of the virtual world that you imerse yourself in when you play a game. the flow of a game when playing it can be really messed up when you spot a boxy looking item or a crapy texture. for an example those of you have and Xbox360, play gears of war. i played my mates the other day and i gotta say it blew me away. the gameplay was great but the fact the visuals and the graphics were amazing really made it a treat to play. so. those of you say ''gameplay over graphics'', get real.
