Because the graphics have to appeal. They are, and have always been, the most important factor

Not really. I'm playing through DQVI right now on SNES Classis and I'm enjoying it. It's definitely not because of the graphics. Gameplay trumps graphics every time.


Surely the subject is a discussion for releases in the current day.

Nah, a fun game is a fun game. Graphics don't decide that and aren't the most important factor, ever. Plus, you said they "always have been the most important factor," and that's just not true.


But when that game was new, it wouldve been.

When it comes to video games, the single most progressive leap is visuals.

Gameplay.

"Cinematic Graphics" has its place, depending on the type of game in question, but isn't even remotely necessary. Good gameplay is.

Right, that's a leap in technology, but it isn't what makes games enjoyable. A game with amazing, top notch graphics can still be a bad game and a game with low end graphics can still be a great game. That's why graphics aren't the most important factor. Salt and Sanctuary didn't exactly push the envelope as far as graphics go, but it was still an excellent game. Same with Hollow Knight. If a person can't enjoy a game unless it has flashy graphics, that sounds more like a personal issue.

RE4 is one of the greatest games ever made.

When you play an adventure game, the story is the most important thing.


It depends. I understand what you're saying, but Zelda and Souls, for example, don't have much of a story (Souls has lore, it's different). Zelda is probably the greatest action adventure series ever made and is almost totally focused on gameplay.

I think it really depends on the game type... Like when I'm looking at Visual Novels, story is more important... Like VA-11 Hall A's actual gameplay was just making drinks and occasionally buy things but I loved the story and dialogue...

With something with more gameplay (like action games for example), I definitely think gameplay is the most important thing...

Stop telling people how to enjoy their games.
