You make a good point about the sound too. Ever since I got my astro mixamp for the 360 it has really opened my eyes to what a game like LA noire really sounds like. And when I first played BBC2 when it was in beta the sounds just amazed me to the point where I would literally jump when an explosion happend.
Oh yeah your wrong about people not buying a game with pacman graphics...
People flocked to minecraft in hordes and it has graphics Worse then pacman .
FYI if anyone wants crazy graphics, a game world on a fallout/TES scale, and amazing sound. Check out Just Cause 2 I must have missed the release of this game because I had never heard of it before last week lol.
