    Why obsess over graphics?

    Why is everyone obsessing over the graphics of the Wii games ALREADY? They're NEW, and the FIRST ones for the NEW console. Do you think they're ALREADY going to be pushing the limits of the console?

    And on another note, we should be thinking about how the game flows. The controls, the plot line, how we relate to any of the characters in the game. C'mon people, quit complaining about the graphics, and let's get to pwning!

    I think this moreso comes from the newer gaming crowd who didn't grow up on the commodore, atari, NES, super NES etc. They started gaming with the xbox/ps2.

    It also comes from the older older generation of gamers who weren't necessarily into games, but are really into sports games now.

    True, true....Some of the greatest games EVER came out in pretty crappy 2D, so I know not to go by graphics ^^ Plus I work on 3D Stuff and I know just how hard it is to do all of this, and I can respect the makers of games for their time and effort on modeling and texturing.

    Perfect example:

    Sonic for the Sega -> Shit graphics, amazing game play.

    Sonic for the XB360 -> Great graphics, awful game play.

    That sonic game that is coming out for the Wii looks like it has far better gameplay. And yes I have played that sonic for the x360/ps3.

    Well i was a fan of Super Mario Bros in my youth and i still love it. The NES was the only console I evern owned. But since two months ago i got back into consoles and bought the Game cube, PS2, and the Wii. i have to agree with you guys tat graphics isn't everything, and gameplay counts for a lot. but after seeing a freind of mine playing Gears of war on the 360, guess what, I am buying one soon just to play this game. I beleive Nintendo will do greate with the Wii, it is the only console that is actually fun. but the 360 is also fun. so what I am trying to say is that both are important.

    Depends on the game. Far Cry is going to have mixed feelings on the Wii because on the PC, the graphics were really what makes it immersive. There's also statments in some reviews that say the Wii isn't powerful enough and the framerate "often dips below 30fps", not sure now much lower though.

    I'm not saying I care heaps about graphics, just that some games require realistic environments in order to be completely immersive.

    why did you buy a wii and a gamecube? the wii plays gamecube games. or did you buy the gamecube a while ago?

    for me its half and half, if the game has bad graphics then the game play should be beter, well now that i think about it the game play is mainly the thing to be lookin for! the game play is like 80% of what to look for cause if u got bad game play then ur shirly not goin to like the game and ive play some games with bad game play in my life! and i agree that thats y the 2D games r so good cause they had great game play and those games have great story lines too!!1!!
