Are video games better because of the graphics?
Posted 11/9/09
graphics have a nice touch, but gameplay and story makes the whole game... a game. Although, i have fun looking at graphics, it is not as important as gameplay and story

games arent necessarily better just because the got spiffy graphics. actually, games nowadays tend to focus more on simply having good graphics instead of good gameplay. of course there are still superb games out there that have good gameplay and graphics. personally tho, i focus more on gameplay than graphics. heck, i fell in love with a text-based simulation game (Dwarf Fortress ftw)

I say most games are good for their plot.

No! No! No! No! Graphics do NOT determine how good a game is. It is a factor but there are other factors that make a game good such as storyline, gameplay etc. So all these factors should be weighed to determine if a game is good. People who just look at graphics and spend their money on a game are silly and wasting their money.

graphics make you want to play the game and explore the surroundings. a game with great graphics and good gameplay is on par with a game with okay graphics and great gameplay.

Graphics is only one of the essentials of videogaming that draws people the most into the game itself. so its kinda half and half.

I don't think so, Legend of Dragoon is a (in my opinion) FREAKIN AWSOME GAME...*ahem adjusts glasses sorry about that outburst* (XDDD I'm soooo bored) but anywho... Legend of Dragoon is an awsome game and its a PS1 game and it doesn't have very good graphics(until it goes onto the cut scenes that is and then it has equal graphics to games like on the PS3, I think so.)

The gameplay and plot are the most important. If you're engeaged in playing the game enough then you may not even notice the graphics that much. Even though older games don't have as good graphics as today, most of them have better content and are more fun.

Graphics alone do not make up a great game. I could care less about what the game looks like as long as the game has a very nice storyline and fun gameplay I will love it. A lot of games today have good graphics but skip out on the story so they don't come out all that goood. Of course there are some games that do not rely on a story such as Tekken since it is mainly about fighting against other people so graphics are what you want for that type of game usually. I hope they start making more games soon that have decent storylines so I can actually enjoy them more.

I'd say no, graphics do not make the game. If you disagree, then you're in the same shallow category of people who judge others based solely on looks. Sure, you can wank to Crysis graphics, but in your heart, you know you'd rather be playing Super Mario Bros.

However, when it comes to aesthetics, I say that style is more important than the number of polygons, texture resolution, particle effects, etc.

For example, we can all agree there is a huge technological difference between Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 7. However, I completely prefer Chrono Trigger's graphics. Yes, it's a 2D game. I just can't stand the look of FF7, mostly because of the blocky hands. Before you call me biased, I didn't play either of these games til like 2002, so I have no nostalgic bias for either of them.

No, graphics don't make a good game, ok it looks great...but who cares, you want a story that shocks you and makes you cry.

Hence Okami, it was totally different from all the other games, it dared to be different with its artistic graphics, and what a game it was! Amazing.

Look at FFVII, the huge square pixels rofl, but it clearly didn't matter.

The only game I can think of that has everything including amazing graphics is Modern Warfare II.

I'm not sure about this. Look, graphics of such games as Tomb Raider series were a true revolution back then but now we have better graphics so of course those animations seem a lot worse. In ten years we'll say "today's" graphics suck

Comparision between original game and the remake.

Graphics are a major increase and would make more people go towards it but when they buy it they might suck some people will watch trailers and look at both graphics and game plays (i do that but makes me want it even more xD sometimes)
