"Outside of *insert name of system or game here* fanboys, the graphic whore population is the most annoying sect of gamers in the universe. To such idiots, a game's graphics must be as real as the physical world around them, and if they are not, the game isn't worth wasting their precious time with. These are the people who can't appreciate beautiful games like Okami, who won't pick up a Wii because it doesn't have HD capabilities, and who won't play an Xbox 360 title if it isn't being played on an 102" high-definition screen. We all know them, we all live with them, and we can't exterminate them. They are ruining the industry one small step at a time, and with the Xbox 360's power getting untapped everyday, their numbers are growing.
If you judge a game by its graphics, than you're not a gamer. You're a complete moron. Not playing games for such a reason isn't like judging a book by its cover. It's like judging a book by the shelve its in, or by the bookstore's carpet. Any true gamer knows that gameplay is the key to the success of any game, and without a core of intuitive controls and enticing mechanics, a game is nothing. But If graphics are above gameplay in your mind, then this pre-rendered picture of a beautiful sunset to the left should be the new standard of video games. Stare at that for ten hours instead of playing through Rainbow Six Vegas 2's single player campaign ("terrible" graphics and all) and report to me how fun it was."
