Caring About Graphics Is Important, to an Extent

Twinfinite writes: A player’s first judgment of an upcoming video game starts with the graphics. The first showing of a game sets an expectation. Caring about graphics is necessary because it has to capture the imagination of players and make them want to explore the world. Though, players shouldn’t place all emphasis on a game with its graphics.

We PC gamers openly care about the best graphics, we don't try to hide it and claim that advanced graphics aren't that important. But many of us still prefer very high framerate when they do multiplayer games.

As for console gamers, many on the net pretend that they don't care. Lies of course.

Just Imagine games like Ryse or Uncharted series without pretty graphics...

Not at all. To me, the essence of PC gaming is indie/less-than-AAA/less accessible games, and downgrading the graphics settings liberally in every single game until you hit 144 fps at rock-bottom minimum. I can't go back to consoles as long as the requirement for every game isn't at least 60 fps.

It's kinda starting to happen with Pro/Scorpio, though.

And you continue with your laughably pathetic trolling of Sony. uncharted is a 90% + multiple GOTY awarded, multi million sales franchise way out of the league of Ryse. I guess you're just salty because uncharted, specificaly uncharted 4, Is better than anything Microsoft has put out this generation. Ouch.

I'm not bro. I can show you my copy that I bought when the game came out.

Uncharted series is nothing without graphics.

I think graphics is the wrong word. Aesthetic is important, the game should have a look and feel that is of a high quality. There are plenty of games with lesser graphics (Gungeon) that still look great doing what they do well. When games don't look great (ME:A) and have graphical glitches that is a problem. Breath of the Wild doesn't have the best graphics, but it still has an amazing aesthetic that serves the art style well.

Well if the player feels more of an attachment to a character made out of 16 bit pixels then today's more modern realistic high polygon count ones then you know sheits FKD UP in every department except for the graphics
