[CVG]Bethesda: If you say graphics don't matter, you're probably lying - Page 10

I like to see people's opinion if, bf3 looked like pacman! Something tells me, things will be very different!
post #92 of 154
I like this article and what other members have been saying.

Graphics aren't #1. That's gameplay and controls (unless it's PC). In this day and age, where graphics have come a very long way (Crysis, Metro, STALKER, FF13, Uncharted 2), the only way you could get away with crappy N64 or poorly designed Wii graphics is if it had the best game play possible. STALKER wouldn't be where it is today without graphics, even though it has really good gameplay and atmosphere (because of graphics).

I feel that some people tend to overdue it in the graphics department tho. FF13 could of been a bit better if they spent little more time in gameplay department than they did in the graphics though.. It looks really sick for a PS3 game.

Never played minecraft or wish to do so. There are games for everyone and Crysis is great in it's own right.

Na, don't agree with that. I've played Metro 2033 at its max, it made me dizzy of its gameplay, and I stopped... Crysis/Warhead, well, its boring... Same goes with Just Cause 2,

It's just this first few days you go crazy about a game's graphics and then boof, you quit cause its boring.

I still play the most faggiest games with the -decent- graphics daily(also, a 2D game, lol.) anyways, if I get to choose between Crysis 2 and San Andreas:MP, I'd definitely go for San Andreas. http://www.xfire.com/profile/spilot/

All what am I trying to say, it's just the "hype". You get the game with that awesome graphics that people have been speaking about, you play it for few hours, and boof, it's done, you don't play it anymore.

Parody of the "girl example",
Well, you screw with a girl thats hawt, but the next day you realize how manipulative and ugly she is from the inside, the next thing she knows, you left her.

I agree as well. Graphics do matter, but should be prioritized after gameplay and graphics.

Nah, I don't really care, graphics aren't even in my list of things to think about when I'm looking at games, even if they're Crysis good.
Are you telling me you wouldn't care if (for example) BF3 had Atari graphics?

That's not really a fair question, as he said "if it plays well".

Tell me how you're going to make Battlefield 3 work with Atari graphics.
