I think it goes a little deeper than that. I think people who buy new cards are people who like to play the newest games when they come out mostly because they're new and look cool.

People who don't upgrade very often like to play older games because they're tried and true and provide the kind of gameplay they like without necessarily looking good. They'll play Crysis when they hear about how it does and have a chance to upgrade.

Personally, I'm not at all excited about Crysis. There are other games I'd rather play.

and for us multiplayer fans...how can those reasons above make a bad multiplayer?
can anyone say HL2? Its multiplayer is crap, but it is an awesome game and looks VERY pretty!

see, we all like good graphics. the games that got all the awards in the past few years were HL2, FEAR, Oblivion, Gears of War for 360... it's no coincidence that all those games had great graphics. after all, they are called video games.

Well, yes. That's the advantage of advancing technology. But just because newer games have good graphics, doesn't mean they're necessarily better than a game released some years ago running on dx6 or something. It's not like every new *good* looking game is groundbreaking as far as gameplay and playability and, most importantly, fun go.

I still enjoy FFVII more than any FF game released afterward. But sure, if they redid the game exactly as it was, but with better graphics. I'd grab it up in a heartbeat.

Crysis is going to be awesome, that's a fact. Another fact is that I'll play it terribly! I'm probably going to upgrade to an 8800Ultra just because of Crysis and Unreal: III.

Do all "other shooters" have the "same storyline and theme"? FEAR had a great and unique storyline, Half-life and Half-life 2 each had great and unique storylines.....,,,. Or are you just making broad/unjustified statements cuz you have something against Crysis? lol

Great graphics go a long way in making a game more fun. I remember when Call of Duty first came out, and for the first time in video gaming i heard the term "sensory immersion" coined. The graphics and theatrics/production quality really made you feel like you were in the environment, killing the baddies. Brothers in Arms also did a great job with sensory immersion.

Graphics arent everything, but you can't say a game will be crap because it has good graphics
