Are You Or Someone You Know A "Graphics Junkie"?

Hey Everyone.

I like good graphics as much as the next gamer, but I just feel that too many people place too much emphasis on them in a game. To me, playability and a well thought out storyline mean just as much. A good example would be Dragon Quest 8. It uses cell shading and it's graphics don't match the caliber of many other titles, but it's innovation and a great storyline more than make up for it. Are you a graphics junkie? Are graphics all that matter to you?

Good graphics are nice to have, but without engaging gameplay a game will fall flat on its face if that's its sole focus.

Storyline > Everything.

I think like, no matter what the game it's almost a triforce of Graphics, Gameplay and Story
To make a good game you need to be average in two but great in the third.

DMC = Good graphics and story but amazing gameplay
MGS = Good gameplay and graphics but amazing story

I'm trying to think of a good graphics game that has okay gameplay and story.. somebody help me out here.

I've never been the type, no. Even more so since I'm more of an old school gamer.

While I do like good graphics, especially combined with an amazing story line and/or gameplay, it would never be the deciding factor for me. Nor would it be what makes a game good/great for me either.

I won't say graphics mean nothing but as long as they're good ENOUGH then I am fine. For example Black Ops on PS3 wasn't graphically impressive at all but it was good enough and the game play overall, was solid. inFAMOUS had a cool art style but the in game graphics were a bit choppy and last gen but the gameplay rocked so no gripes. Long as the graphics are adequate, I wont fuss about them.

Takeayoshii is an unknown quantity at this point

Well Final Fantasy XIII is a game with amazing visuals, a good storyline and terrible gameplay.

Great graphics are awesome, but the game itself has to be good too. No matter how much glitter you put on a turd, it's still a turd.
