I mainly play video games on the PlayStation 2 because the games available for it appeal to me more than video games on the newer consoles.

i agree ps3 games dont look very good the only ones i might play are metal gear solid 4 red dead redemtion and gta 4

Clearly you've not looked enough, though I'll admit the Ps2 was a wonderful achievement; I still play mine actively. It seems to me that the only problem with newer generations is ambition. Developpers rely on graphics rather than pushing themselves to elaborate neat storylines and gameplay; back in the days of the Ps2, games didn't look as good, so they had to work themselves out by constructing multi-staged games with strong, engrossing concepts, i.e. Xenosaga, Hack, games with more than one Cd like Baten Kaitos, FF7, etc, etc...

They're some games that don't require good graphics to be a good game. Such as old school games like Mario. Or some games who like to have that pixelated old school graphics like Minecraft. In my opinion, graphics are something I really don't care about. In every game I always turn the quality down for a better gameplay. You can make graphics like Avatar, but I wouldn't care. If it was a bad game with the best graphics in the world I'd still say it was a bad game. Old school is in style anyway. I'm not saying good quality is bad, but it's not in my extreme expectations. Think of it like a video game is like Ice Cream. The Game is a ice cream, the quality is the toppings. You can live without them. You can have every topping in the world but if you have a tiny scoop of ice cream I'm gonna hate it. :)

Well, your OP states some debate on the relation between gameplay and graphics...Isn't that the primary topic? I just pictured some games that united both in the comment I made above...When did it stray to become Pc-oriented?

It is nice to know with a system that you can for sure play the game the way it was meant to be played. Getting back to the original thread subject, I have a wii which everyone cringes at but one thing you have to admit the wii has come out with a lot of inventive and innovative games that are really cool and don't need to be in HD in order to be enriching. Super Mario Galaxy for example (tried for a popular example) was a very unique game with its whole gravity dynamic that forced the player to really explore and take risks (I know I walked off a platform more than once thinking I could walkj on the bottom. Not only did it introduce this but it kept what we love about platformers and even reverted to a 2 dimensional platformer at times to bring back the nostalgia of the SNES games while still using the unique gravity dynamic to reinvent that sometimes thought to be stagnant form of game. Those are the kinds of games I want to play and I don't care whether it comes in a badly made cartoon form or HD

i see the point of a games graphic impact towards making the gameplay better for example if call of duty didnt have realistic graphics the gameplay would not be as intense
