BeefJack presents a slightly different take on the age-old 'gameplay versus graphics' debate.
From the article: "Image is important. It’s something certain people in the games industry seem determined to deny, and I’m at a loss to understand why. Over and over you hear designers and their fans insist gameplay matters more than graphics, that flashy visuals can’t save a sub-par release, and it drives me up the wall. At best it’s wilful ignorance. At worst, it’s reductive dogma that’s holding videogames back from being what they could be. Either way, it’s still wrong."
