Who Needs Graphics? [GamingLives]

GamingLives asks Who Needs Graphics?

"Every new game that gets released seems to come with a new graphics engine, and is flashier, faster, and prettier than the last… but do games need all the fabulous graphics and all those buttery-smooth framerates? Is it necessary for the whole game to look like they’ve transplanted the entire thing from real life? Is it really that important to watch your enchanted pixie swordswoman disembowel an orc in glorious 1080p? I’ve recently come to the realisation that, for me, personally, it isn’t, and they don’t."

Very good article

Most of my favorite gaming experiences of all time are graphically lacking by todays standards. And I still believe that they are greater than what is currently being released on the market today.

Titles like Unreal Tournament, Super Mario 64, Final Fantasy 7, Xenoblade Chronicles, Streets of Rage 2, Killer Instinct Gold, WWF Wrestlemania 2000, Skies of Arcadia Legends, Metroid Prime, Ocarina Of Time, Contra, StarFox 64, Gunstar Heroes, Resident Evil 2 and many many more stand the test of time with under par graphical capability. Especially with the tech available today. But still in my opinion offer a greater experience than many many new releases.

Graphics are a very nice addition or bonus to a game when done correctly. These days I believe that graphics are taken too seriously, and many games are falsely judged by their outer graphical shell, and not the world class content that could potentially be placed on the table. I am glad there are others out there that can enjoy a great gaming experience, even with a lack of graphical fidelity.

Rated E For Everyone
