Gameplay fo shiz! But Graphics are a huge plus! Probably why Half Life 2 was so successful, it had everything!

Gameplay over graphics any day. No fun if it has great graphics but no gameplay.

I don't see graphics having a bigger role over gameplay. However, if you have a game where the two are both pretty good, you'll have a great time, where-as with games where the graphics are bad but the gameplay is excellent, it'll leave you wanting a re-make of it (with better graphics, of course).

So really, it's just an addition. But a rather large addition, that many people use to judge whether a game will be good or not.

A classic example of gameplay over graphics was Aliens Vs. Predator 2.

Graphics are important, but not more than gameplay. I have to like looking at it to play it.

killer400In some cases graphics does. Bf2 graphics :thumbsdown:, while kING KONG, brothers in arms were better.

Brothers In Arms has good graphics? You gotta be kidding. They look like the've been drawn in Paint and saved as a BMP.

Thats really stupid, considering Bf2 is the hardest to run. Brothers in Arms has bleek graphics it just had really pretty effects like blur and stuff.

You see this is where a lot of modern game producers have got it wrong. They think stunning graphics will hide flaws in th gameplay. I imagine, a lot of our generation, at least i know mine will, have grown up with computers. I remmber sitting down playing Doom, and Decent. Those games were just ace! in those days they had cutting edge graphics, and indulging game play. Now some new people would look back at doom, and think, "Hell, i'd rather have Starship troopers" or w.e. But, i would always! have doom. Nowadays game designers think they can hide their stupid storyliners behind Beautiful levels and guns, and gore.. But you buy a game for the gameplay!!! GAMEPLAY is essential!... thank god for MODDING tools lol:moon:
