Do Graphics Really Matter?


There’s been alot of debate whether graphics really matter. Some people looking forward to Diablo 3 noticed that the graphics wern’t “rich” Some even say that the way it looks now makes it look more colorful and not as dark as the series used to be. In my opinion, i think the color change works perfect with it. The game is supposed to take place 20 years into the future. Everything that was destroyed was pretty much built and regrown. I also think the reason the older games looked darker was because the lack of technology the time it was developed. As far as graphic mattering, they don’t. When it comes to a computer game, you have to think about how the game will run on the computer. No one is going to want a game that’s going to require a 2gb video card just to be able to run with the settings on low. There has been many successful games that have pulled it off. Such as Minecraft, which is a free roam lego styled game. A true gamer doesn’t look at the graphics and pays attention to the gameplay and the storyline.

  1. I wouldn’t say that graphics don’t matter at all, but they certainly aren’t the most important thing.

    Unfortunately, people do judge a book by it’s cover. If you put an ugly game on the market, there’s going to be a lot of people that never give it a chance simply because they don’t like the way it looks.

    That said; good graphics doesn’t have to mean the most high-end cutting edge stuff out there. I’m with you; I prefer my games to actually run. Solid animation, modeling, texturing, and lighting don’t have to have two billion polygons and every DX11 effect you can think of in order to look good.
