[CVG]Bethesda: If you say graphics don't matter, you're probably lying

Bethesda's Peter Hines says good graphics are an integral part of creating immersion as well as a valuable marketing tool.

Speaking on the latest OXM podcast, the publisher's VP of marketing said: "There's a lot of people who say graphics don't matter. To them I usually say 'you're lying'.

"[People] will look at a screenshot and make a snap decision: 'that looks awesome', or 'I'm not interested'. So if you can make something look amazing just at first glance, it's so much easier to get them."

Although visuals do matter, and I totally agree with this guy on that, they aren't top priority.....

sounds about right

He's so right. Anyone that says graphics don't matter are probably those that lived back in the days of Atari where graphics really didn't matter.

When you look at a game now it's usually the graphics that first grab your attention. Yes, gameplay is important, but if the games graphics/art style doesn't grab your attention, would you play it or even look into it to see how the gameplay is? Most likely not.

Graphics do matter . . . to a point. I guess what I mean is that I really like good graphics, but I'd rather have a good story/gameplay first. Ideally, I'd have both.

Graphics do matter but they should come second to, at the very least, gameplay.

I agree, it's like with chicks (or whatever you like), what's inside matters, but it's the visuals that make you take an extra look at first ..

Depends on the game style, although 99% of games graphics matter.

I think it's best if the graphics match the gameplay.
