Exactly. graphichs are the least important thing in games for me anyway.

I'd rather have both too. I think graphics and sound/music are both equally important. But I also think that many people don't realize just how important music and sound is to our experience of a game.

For me Music is just as important as graphics. I've been playing Castlevania Lords of Shadow lately and the soundtrack is just exceptional and significantly adds to my enjoyment of the game.

I don't think it's more important but I think it is one of the most important main ingredients that make a game great.

Graphics matter initially, the music is what sticks with us.

Okay, that's for me anyway...

Technically graphics continue to improve but if the art is timeless people will remember it (Okami as an example). Some music can stick around and have a lasting effect for similar reasons.

Agreed but what I mean is for any individual game, graphics catch our eyes and help build that amazing experience but going back to that game 10 years later, after the graphics are now outdated, the nostalgia that punches you in the face is the music.

Or why this necessity of finding the most important factor in gaming?
