Fallout 3 isn't exactly the most beautiful game on the planet yet everyone loves it.
I don't need the latest visuals to date to play a game. Sure, it's nice to have especially in games where you EXPECT the visuals to be good (Crysis).
It's also fun to criticize graphics where developers fall flat with them too. Particularly those CG or core rendered cutscenes that don't get the proper bitrate or resolution, as well as those sad textures that pop out at you that are just ugly all over the place. But, it doesn't mean that the game is bad by any means necessary or that it actually matters to an extent.
They could've done RE5 with the classic block-like figures and it still would've been a great game.
Art/Visual style falls under graphics.
Going back to what someone else said earlier, if graphics don't matter much to them, why the high-end gpus? Graphics don't matter, so why do you need to max out the game? You'd get the same fps on lower settings on lower hardware, no? You save money, but you also get to enjoy the story and gameplay. Saying the graphics helps immerse you into the gameplay and story just proves graphics do matter lol.Edited by Yvese - 3/17/11 at 10:24am
