Title: How important are graphics to you in games?
Post by: Don't make me beg on November 29, 2015, 05:50:52 PM
Title. And I'm not just talking about whether it's HD or not, so don't go and say you don't care at all bc I'm pretty sure you wouldn't play MK8 if it looked like Pong.

I'd say they're probably the third most important thing in gaming for me. Right below story and gameplay. Nothing better than looking out on a massive world in games like NV or XC3D. Which are both, admittedly, not that good quality-wise  but still manage to look pretty vivid. And I've always loved games like Borderlands (screw Burch for ruining 2 / TPS) and Bastion which have unique art style.

Even in NES games I mostly like them because of the 'retro' feel of the 8bit graphics. IE, SMB and FF 1. Though I can't stand ancient 3D (like, back before Half-Life and all that) because it's always blocky and pixelated.

Visuals are super important to games. They can help immerse you in an experience and have an effect on every other element. It totally affects gameplay, and other elements.

Graphics aren't the most important thing to me, though as you pointed out, I wouldn't get MK8: Pong Edition. I personally like 2D characters in RPGs. Like how the Pokemon games looked before gen 7.

For me, graphics can determine a lot. Usually, the games with better quality are better, but not always. I enjoy basic and enjoyable graphics. I always enjoy looking at the artwork of the newer characters, because it makes the game feel more futuristic, or is that just me? :P

I just don't enjoy games with BAD quality. Take MKWii for example. It doesn't have stunning quality, but it's good. I think for a 2008 game, it's actually pretty good. Now take MP10. Despite it having exceptional graphics, the game itself wasn't superior. So my answer is: it depends on the game.

I'm more on aesthetic and visuals than the actual graphics. Many games today have good graphics, but to they utilize it? MP10, which Bowser used, is a very good example. The graphic as he stated were "exceptional" but I found a lot of the areas and parts of the game visually bland. And as Tyler said, graphics help immerse you into the game. Good graphics and great visuals together are very important to a game imo.

This. Graphics are fine and all, but it's less graphics and more visuals that catch my attention. It's all about visuals to me.

Is it really necessary to write it as a roman numeral?

Honestly, if a game looks like s*** (unintentionally), then it'd probably factor in a little bit. Maybe it shows more if I'm presented with a game that actually has s*** graphics, but yeah. The visuals comment also applies.

[...]I'm pretty sure you wouldn't play MK8 if it looked like Pong.

I would.

Graphics don't matter to me that much as long as the gameplay is good
