Pretty much. People who say gameplay is better then graphics is really just lying to themselves or has a bad graphics card.
If gameplay truly matters to you so much over graphics buy a xbox or ps3 and don't waste the money building a PC then.
If graphics didn't matter games like crysis,metro and others like them wouldn't sell as good as they do. Nor would graphic card manufacturers keep constantly releasing cards instead of just improving what they have with software.

See crysis 2. I am more of the opinion that consoles ruined that game though since instead of investing more money developing a proper game they did a multi platform without PC being the lead and it suffers because of it.
Crysis 1 still looks better with mods, sadly enough.Edited by [nK]Sharp - 6/7/11 at 7:20am
