    Im so annoyed and I know this is the millionth thread about it but I just want to stress my point! My friend is anoyying now because all he cares about in a game is the graphics! Im so tired of graphics whores. They are so annoying I mean, these days its all about graphics! Where has the real fun gone? Listen to this retarded statement I heard from someone:

    "Oh my god, Bioshock has the best graphics ever. It is like 1000x times better than Super Mario Galaxy. It totally deserves game of the year from X-play. Super Mario Galaxy would've never gotten it because the graphics on it suck."

    Again, where has the real fun gone? I really want to stress my point:



    GAMEPLAY>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Graphics



    Video games are not movies. They were never meant to look like movies. I agree that graphics are a big part of a game but Graphics don't make a game.

    you have an excellent point there and I am tired of it. Even though I love good graphics is deffinetly not everything. Im also quite annoyed because of the GFX whores. I feel bad for you that you have an annoying friend like that.

    not true

    i hate it how people now apparently can only have fun if there are good graphics as if lookin at a big tree wit good graphics is going to get your spirits up i mean seriously noone should care what the graphics look like as long as they are having fun. graphics can't buy fun. Wii buys fun but not graphics.
    nd people hav more fun on the wii then they do wit xbox 360 or ps3 nd the wii has worse graphics.
    i dont see how playing in a room alone all night playing halo is fun i mean i just dont understand it even if ur ganking noobs alnight online.

    Graphics only make a game intriguing, I don't play to be amazed, I play it to have some fun and forget about whatever crap there may be. If I wanted graphics i'd create my own outside of a game.

    Graphics don't make the game, games aren't like movies, games should be fun not colorful graphic, intellivision had very crappy graphic but it was the earily 80's, then came Nes same crapy graphics, SNES started to show improved graphics. Games should bbe fun not spify graphics like 'whoooooooooo ahhhhhhhhhhhh look at those beautiful graphics.

    My fave game is still D & D for intellivision,

    The thing is that these games have both gameplay and graphics. People aren't saying how great the games are purely because of the graphics, they are fun too, the good looks are just an added bonus. Plus graphics can make a game much more enjoyable because of the realism that it adds.

    LMAO @ The comment about people playing Halo for the graphics. Halo looks like complete and utter ****.

    Yes, look at Crysis. That would of just been 'another fps' the only new thing is the suit but the graphics made the experience so much more pleasant, it pushed boundaries and that's why crysis is known.

    It reminds me of a conversation that some 13 year old boys were having on some PlayStation 2 or 3 forums about how the Wii is for kids, but people like them like more mature games.

    It was in somethingawful's weekend web

    my friend told me he wouldnt play half life two because the graphics wernt as good as the latest 360 titles, er hello awesome game and from what i remeber fanastic graphics maybe not super awesome compared to the latest stuff, but once youve played any game for more than 5 mins youve forgotten about the graphics anyway just like watching a crappy downloaded film, unless its so bad you can make out peoples faces , most of the time a small drop in quality wont put people off watching them and you forget after 5 mins. then what matters is how good the film or game is.

    Have you ever noticed when someone complements on graphics the game is always good, like bioshock, R&C, mass effect, uncharted,

    Graphics are a huge part of a game and to some the only part (im one of em) your not gonna change my mind, grapgics in my oppinion pwn gameplay

    but as previusly stated graphics and gameplay go together so by you saying gameplay owns graphics and me saying graphics owns game play we are both wrong

    both go together to make a good game

    dont get me wrong theirs other stuff like lasting appeal the genre of the game and whatnot but these two are the big ones

    True the source engine is ageing but it is still a nice looking game. The orange box is amazing, portal looks dazzling. The orange box will always have a place in my heart even when all graphics are photo realistic xD

    Hey, my first post here, I register as there's some pretty cool conversations going on, this being on of them! :cool:

    I got a Wii console for Christmas and they are amazing, the gameplay is by far the best compared to the PS3 and Xbox 360.

    The PS3 is known for it's brilliant graphics however this will be let down by the fact Sony like to control everybody's console's, check out the PSP lockdown's and you'll see what I mean!

    The Xbox 360 is aparently good graphics too, however I can't tell the difference between the PS3, Wii and Xbox's graphics, people boast about having one when really it's just a newer version of Microsoft's console.

    The Wii however has pretty much the same graphics despite the slightly less powerful GFX card, but it's the control system on the Wii that makes it so unique and suitable for everybody. The Wii is by far the best console out there now because of these features and the compatibility with the older nintendo console's.

    Go Wii!
