i feel so lucky to be born right in the MIDDLE of two major eras, and now that i think about it, im lucky my parents are cheap and just bought me a sega genesis instead of a ..."play...sta...tion?" it gave me a far broader love and understanding for video games, along with playing my cousin's SNES so by the time i got my N64, i was enough of a retro gamer... even tho i didnt see it as retro.... but w/e i just enjoy being a hybrid of retro and current video games, im lucky, most ppl my age can't appreciate the classics like i do cuz they didn't actually legitly grow up with them like all u old retro gamers Razz

game play will always be more important to graphics to me, but to a lot of people it is the other way around these days and that is why I believe the video game industry is slowly working it's way into the toilet.

No, I think it's heading there pretty damn fast.

Thing is, we're constantly driving for graphics that look realistic. What happens when we get to a point where graphics are as realistic as they can ever get?

Bottom Line: Gameplay > Graphics

Sure graphics play a big role in the presentation, but the thing is if a game ain't fun, you're not gonna stick around just because it looks pretty, maybe for the story if you want to find out the ending, but oh wait yeah i forgot about a little thing called the internet.
