BadHairDẵy;4929550IT WAS ON THE WII. Since when do WII games have good graphics?

Depends on your definition of good graphics I suppose.

Why can't they just let this game die? I've be hearing about this game for almost half my life and they can't seem to finish it (I have an old pc gaming magazine from 1999 talking about this game). What is the big hold-up? Is the script longer than War and Peace? Let it die already!!!

Wow, you are one big hypocrit "Okay, just because it's on the wii it doesn't have to have good graphics, BUT FOR PC, 360, AND PC, IT MUUST HAVE TEH 1337ZOR GRAPHICS LEIK CRYSIS", that's such bullshit, since when did a game depend so much on god damn graphics to be good? Was everyone yelling and screaming at Dead Rising for not having the latest revolutionary graphics? Did people hate Ghost Recon for not having the latest graphics? Jesus, good graphics are practicaly becoming a widespread fetish these days, it's so god damn annoying. Besides, this isn't the first time a game has taken such a long time to actually develop and release (TF2, and that turned out to be a hit). So why don't you guys stop complaining that it doesn't have crysis standard graphics (which nothing except the crysis series has) and worry about how it will play. I don't know why everyone is so upset and what all the hatred for 3DR is either, they've been putting out games within the decade so get over it and no one TOLD you to be hyping it and constantly wait for it, you wanna hear what i have to say? WHEN IT'S DONE. How about that?

How can you blame people for being upset with 3DR? What have they released of information on the game? Three screenshots, and a CGI trailer. No real and proper gameplay footage, no official and public showcasing, and not a single word on the features except 'It'll be huge, and it'll be great'. Team Fortress 2 did take awhile, but at least the developer released screenshots and (some) gameplay footage.

I remember back in the day when gamers didn't care about super graphics and rather story line and plot. It seems our type are dying breeds.

Also TF2 took some time because it was sidelined while other projects were worked on while going back now and then to carry on with the work. It was also scrapped altogether and remade in a new engine with better graphics.

Old TF2:

New TF2

But they managed to do all this in a few years while working on other projects. Its taken this other company some 10 years to get nowhere, scrap the game for a new engine and get nowhere again. Also, the WII can bring out Xbox 360 graphics to some limitations. Game companies do not have to do super graphics games, Valves games still work on direct x9 graphics system and you can barely tell them apart from direct x10 unless games like Cyrisis come into play (that abusing direct x10 to the max).

Lets face it, the average gamer kid is thick and is a sheep. If one guy screams "THIS GRAPHICS SUX, HERE IS MY CONSPRIACY YOUTUBE VIDEO TO PR00VE IT!11!" they're just gonna follow and agree out of sheer biasm or just having weak minds and thoughts of opinion.

Anyway, the WII is a family system. The average guy who plays it is not some gamer hardcore freak damnading uber graphics and max rank on Halo 3, these guys are social people and kids, you think they know the difference of graphics that much? Do they even care?

PC 360 and PS3 games are expected TO look good. Wii games were expected to look great ALONG with the other consoles before it came out, yet all the game on it look like shit. YOU SAID PC TWICE.(I'm going to punctuate my post with RANDOM capitalized WORDS.) I'm pretty sure having good graphics isn't a fetish of some people. We just DON'T LIKE seeing brown AND grey throughout our games, we WANT variety in what we looking at.

Yes, games that took a long time became hits, as you SAID, Team Fortress 2. I just don't feel liek waiting for another ALIEN shoot-em up six hour single-player game with a TACKED on multiplayer that's flimsy at best; which is what this game was shaping up to be. The ONLY thing memorable that 3DRealms put out was Prey, and a SHITLOAD of Duke Nukem games. For your question AT the end. How about what?

Ahem, you are the person screaming how great the graphics of the game are. We are merely saying you are wrong. We aren't saying that it's necessarily a bad thing.

Nor are most of us screaming on how it needs awesome graphics. If you'll excuse me, I'll go have some fun in system shock.

Your point is moot, your arguement is moot, the entire discussion about whether games are required to have mind blowing graphics is moot and only to satisfy's the small minded when that's all they look for.

I've mainly been talking about gameplay in terms of how it "looks" then when people came in and started saying things about it's graphics, i showed them that it looks decent enough in this day and age. Not screaming, but your definately leaving some unjust comments.

Braid became a hit because of its extremely hard, near-impossible levels that only someone with either an IQ over 135 or the internet, could complete. Audiosurf became popular because of its innovative gameplay. Overlord did have decent graphics for its time(2007). And Left4Dead was by Valve. Fantastic gameplay doesn't justify horrible graphics, just as terrific graphics doesn't justify horrific gameplay.
