touche'
folks need to get in touch with the older days when the green light from the pong screen on a old rig was graphical pleasing.

Graphics are needed, but a game is like a story teller, the story is (should be) important not how nice the curves or the bump mapping on the story teller look.

Ah...the real question in gaming....graphics vs. gameplay....

I am all for gameplay...as it makes or breaks a game....however, at the end of the day....graphics are what earn my hard-earned cash...

No matter how good the gameplay is, I refuse to buy a game that looks like garbage...

I NEED EYE CANDY!

Afterall, isn't that why we spend such an insane amount of money on our systems in the first place?

Duh!

Hehehe

Seriously though, I'm all for gameplay, but Pelly's right. I didn't not spend small fortunes on my rig to play games that look like arse on a cracker.

Bring on the awesome gameplay AND graphics!

if i wanted gameplay i'd be playing some cards or some basketball.

gameplay is cool, but yeah graphics definately are the deciding factor. graphics enhance the gameplay for me

If I wanted NEW gameplay, on the other hand, I wouldn't be playing the same series (well, it basically is)

I'm playing Kohan (IS and AG), Dungeon Siege, UT2003, NOLF 2, and even ol Payne occasionally atm.
Also have Serious Sam Second Encounter (much more interesting to me than the first, whatever people say) and Transfusion installed...
and demos of Moto GP and NFS:HP2

NOLF 2 kicks ass. Humor in games is such a welcome change.

Awaiting Unreal 2 and Deus Ex 2 right now.
Want to see what Freelancer, Halo PC (I have no xbox,) and C&C Generals are like.
