Had to vote graphics as I prefer FPS games and to be fair the thing that pulls them apart is the graphics. I actually think graphics and gameplay are equal as far cry 2 had amazing graphics but hated the game.

Im a mix of Gameplay and Story. I like having good graphics but they are not a necessity. I prefer to have a game that has a great storyline (IE Metro 2033, and Mass Effect 2) but i still play games with great graphics (Crysis, a few other games too, including Metro 2033)

What a fail post.
Where's the contradiction? If you're referring to when I wrote about being happy sometimes playing block games, that's not a contradiction. The thread is about what's most important to you, not the be all and end all.

It's worth pointing out that I think you need decent graphics for a game to be immersive.

Somes it up better than I did

Storyline. I wouldn't care for graphics/gameplay as long as the story is decent and you know... makes you want to continue and find out what happened.

Hmmm... What about attention to detail? Things like flashlights casting shadows and little things like that. I guess that would be considered graphics, but I think the immersion factor mentioned is also very important. Take the original Half Life. One of the best games ever. I only discovered it 4 or 5 years ago. At that point the graphics were extremely dated, yet it is still one of my favorite games to date, along with the rest of the Half Life series, all of which is one of the most immersive video game series ever IMO. How many of you didn't feel any kind of strong emotions at the end of episode 2? Not many games can do that for me. Anyway, of the three choices available, I would say gameplay=story>graphics.

I prefer gameplay and storyline over graphics, that's why I hadn't bothered with a decent gaming rig yet, but new games are becoming unplayable on my pc at low-mid settings now, so im building a decent pc next week.

But a truly good game should have a great balance of all 3 and of course there's the always important immersion
