Does the focus on Fancy Graphics Hurt the Background Story?

The longtime argument of "graphics vs. gameplay vs. story" has never been more prevalent. We break down why the issue is still relevant.

Well yeah otherwise people wouldn't click. Tits are an easy click lol.

On topic: focus on graphics don't ruin a story. The developer ruins the story. And with FFXV they had over 10 years to create a decent story before release.

pretty much. the game went through what... 3 rewrites? it was even pitched as a musical at first. Hell then it was rebooted to a mainline title. FFvsXIII and FFXV just lacked some sorta focus all around. It was like SE was running circles with it for 10 years until they just dumped it on Tabata and told him to "make what you can with this, and oh it needs to ship fall 2016 (~3 years of actual production). Like wtf SE xD

I still remember the first trailer with noctis talking to that woman...stella? And then a few years later we learn that she was just cut from the story completely. The story of FFXV was a mess in the making. And I've been saying for years that there is no harm in making FFXVI a retro style story driven title. FF6 is still one of the best final fantasy stories every IMO and it would be nice to get another game like that

But why Cindy's tits and not some other character's tits?

No great graphics don't ruin a story if you have the right team and dev's making the game. Take The Last Of Us and Horizon Zero Dawn for example, both excellent graphics and excellent story's.

It shouldn't. We've seen wonderful graphics go hand in hand with fantastic storytelling. So when the story suffers, graphics being a scapegoat is tasteless and I shake my head at the notion. A weak story is from a weak implementation (be it in the final product or from the get go in the idea department).

No, awesome graphics help the immersion.
